Get your house in order, leverage your underutilised assets, find your strategic partners and don’t be frightened… Relax the boundary of ‘me and mine’, get a little bit creative and focus on your purpose… and all things are possible”

George Liacos

Spark Strategy

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things"

Steve Jobs
