We never have enough money to do it right, but we always find the money to do it again.” Gordon Tredgold
I was introduced to Gordon Tredgold, a leadership coach, recently by a mutual friend who thought that Gordon’s thinking and approach to leadership would resonate with me. He was right. It did, and this quote speaks volumes to common-sense, sustainable solution thinking that we are missing in the rush to “make the numbers”. This is one of those quotes that, when spoken in a group, elicits a lot of head nodding and eye rolling, as people reflect on its relevance in their own life experience. This is one of those little gems that bears remembering, not only in business, but in one’s personal life. You could even exchange the word time for money.
Good luck on your journey!
