John G. Miller

Top 10 Best Quotes

“There’s not a chance we’ll reach our full potential until we stop blaming each other and start practicing personal accountability.”

“Ownership: 'A commitment of the head, heart, and hands to fix the problem and never again affix the blame.”

“Let's take care of the little things while they're still little.”

“We attend too many seminars. We take too many classes. We buy too many books. We play too many audios in our cars. It's all wasted if we're unclear on what learning really is: Learning is not attending, listening, or reading. Learning is really about translating knowing what to do into doing what we know. It's about changing. If we have not changed we have not learned.”

“The definition of integrity is this: "Being what I say I am by acting in accordance with my words.”

“Remember: The answers are in the questions.”

“It's better to be one who is told to wait than one who waits to be told.”

“Humility is the cornerstone of leadership.”

“Don't get me wrong, loyalty is an admirable quality. But the number of years one has been around does not automatically equate with being a good leader, any more than does merely having the title of manager or vice president. And certainly the things we acquire- fine cars, nice homes- are not measures of our leadership ability. Leadership, more than anything else, is about the way we think. It's a moment-to-moment disciplining of our thoughts. It's about practicing personal accountability and choosing to make a positive contribution, no matter what out role or "level".”
