Abraham Lincoln Quote for Saturday, February 23rd

“Half-finished work generally proves to be labor lost.”  ~Abraham Lincoln

Don’t scrap that project just because it’s got you mired in frustration. If you’re overwhelmed or unmotivated, call upon others for help.  Discarding the project, as Lincoln said, is lost labor.

Abraham Lincoln’s Quote on Commitment – Fri., February 22nd

Hello Everyone:

If you were a member of  President Lincoln’s cabinet and displayed any doubts about the 13th Amendment passing; you would have been greeted by Lincoln’s obvious anger in the photo below
Abraham Lincoln Quote for Friday, February 22nd

“Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”  ~Abraham Lincoln

Expecting instant change or success the first time around with little effort will only lead to disappointment. Through hard work and dedication, promises made both to yourself and to others will come to fruition.

President Lincoln makes a commitment to his cabinet that the 13th Amendment will pass using all of Presidential his power_Lincoln movie
Until one is committed
There is hesitancy, the chance to draw back
Always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative (and Creation)
There is one elementary truth
The ignorance which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
That the moment that one definitely commits ones self
Then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one
That would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision
Raising in one’s favor all manner
Of unforeseen incidents and meetings
And material substance
Which no one could have dreamt
Would have come your way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. 
Begin it now!  
– 
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Abraham Lincoln Quote on Recognition – Thurs., February 21st

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:

Team of Rivals:  The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by author Doris Kearns Goodwin explores how President Lincoln was able to achieve having the 13th Amendment passed. Putting group goals
(by recognizing others) above self-interest was the first and most important leadership concept.
Forbes contributor, Sebastian Bailey explains why it’s important to put group goals above self-interest.  “Put group goals above self-interest. When leaders use their power for self-interest rather than team success, cracks appear.  Recent research demonstrated that leaders prioritize group goals when their position is stable. But when the hierarchy was unstable, leaders who valued power withheld information and excluded skilled group members.  Their self-interested desire to preserve power was detrimental to group as a whole.
This leads to a major dilemma in an unstable political situation – focus on group goals and potentially lose further power;  focus on individual goals and potentially risk the whole enterprise.  I fear that many leaders in established business and start-ups default to focusing on individual interest and as a result undermine the very purpose of the initiative.  It’s a tough personal balance to strike, but a stronger focus on the group mission increases stability.”
Lincoln Quote for Thursday, February 21st:

“Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.” ~ Abraham Lincoln 

Not every campaign will receive glowing reviews or win awards, and not everything you do may get the credit you believe it deserves. But those who continually strive to learn from mistakes and seek ways to improve performance will be successful.

“Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way.”

Once a goal is set, a strategy must be formed to achieve it. Keep in mind: Setting realistic, measurable goals significantly increases the chances they will be reached in an effective, timely manner and will act as steppingstones to larger aspirations.

Abraham Lincoln’s Quote on Reputation – Tues., February 19th

Leave a comment

Good Morning::

 
This a continuation of the Abraham Lincoln’s six quotes which are enhanced from PR Daily.

– 
There are very few human beings living or dead whose reputation is viewed more positively and inspiring as Abraham Lincoln.  No one is suggesting that Lincoln was perfect; however, he operated from a high moral value system under overwhelming odds.  While the Union soldiers were keeping their promise; President Lincoln kept his promise to pass the 13th Amendment.

Lincoln’s Quote for Tuesday, February 19th:

“Reputation is like fine china: Once broken it’s very hard to repair.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

This is a no-brainer for PR pros, whose job it is to manage and uphold reputations—and occasionally piece together a reputation that took a nose dive from the top shelf of the proverbial china cabinet. PR people aren’t kidding when they advise clients to create a plan—before a crisis occurs—to minimize damage and protect reputations.

Lincoln’s Quote for Monday, February 18th: 
“Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the ax.”  ~ Abraham Lincoln

Preparation is a key ingredient for success. Careful planning and adequate preparation help to ensure a project goes smoothly. You won’t get far trying to sink a dull ax into a tree trunk—nor will you produce impressive results with a dull business, project, financial or communications plan.
