More from Boone Pickens

I posted a quote the other day from Boone Pickens. Some more:

Be willing to make decisions. That’s the most important quality in a good leader. Don’t fall victim to what I call the ready-aim-aim-aim-aim syndrome. You must be willing to fire.
T. Boone Pickens

I’ve always believed that it’s important to show a new look periodically. Predictability can lead to failure.
T. Boone Pickens

Keep things informal. Talking is the natural way to do business. Writing is great for keeping records and putting down details, but talk generates ideas. Great things come from out luncheon meetings which consist of a sandwich, a cup of soup, and a good idea or two. No martinis.
T. Boone Pickens

Work eight hours and sleep eight hours and make sure that they are not the same hours.
T. Boone Pickens
