Found my notes from the Jack Welch interview at MIT while cleaning out my backpack… Here are some of my favorite quotes.
“Slap yourself if you ever become a bore, turn people on!”
“I’ve never seen anyone win with a career plan. I’ve only seen people win with passion.”
“Pay the best tons. Don’t give them a plaque, give them money. Don’t pay the bottom… and take care of the middle.”
“Don’t be afraid to tell people when they stink.”
