98 notches

Last Thursday I got to listen to Ursula Burns, the current CEO and Chairman of Xerox. I won’t repeat her story which you can read about on Wikipedia here, but I did jot down a few quotes that resonated. I’m not the type to keep a moleskin around, but I figure this blog is an alternative…

Where you are does not define who you are.”

“In life, you control 98 notches. The other 2, you can squash.”

“Let them see you sweat. Chill out… leaders don’t have to be perfect and infallible.”

Note: they may not be exact quotes but you get the idea.
