Ready. Fire. Aim. Revisiting Tom Peter’s Action Manifesto

In the world of grants, we are constantly innovating, revisiting outcomes, shifting strategies.  For inspiration, I pulled Tom Peters’ “Action Manifesto” from the desk drawer (okay, I really go online and download it) and read through it again.   A collection of ideas, sayings from business leaders and the general public.  Provocative.  Entertaining.  Never dull. Always challenging.  

My top five:

  • Ready. Fire. Aim.  

  • Fail forward fast.

  • Move fast. Break things.

  • No matter.  Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  • Reward excellent failures. Punish mediocre successes.
