happy-new-yr-Dudey-fireworks2014 is now here. It’s our first full week back at work and it’s the ideal time to pursue new opportunities and follow a different direction. In celebration of the New Year, I’ve compiled my favourite top ten inspirational business quotes.  They can be a little overwhelming, so I suggest reading (and applying) one of these each day in January.  These are my favourite thoughts from famous people who include inspiring leaders, actors and authors:

1. “There’s nothing wrong with staying small. You can do big things with a small team.” – Jason Fried, 37signals founder

 

2. “Don’t worry about failure; you only have to be right once.” —Drew Houston, Dropbox founder and CEO

 

3. “Fail often so you can succeed sooner.” —Tom Kelley, Ideo partner

 

4. “Every day that we spent not improving our products was a wasted day.” —Joel Spolsky, Stack Overflow co-founder

 

5. “High expectations are the key to everything.” —Sam Walton, Walmart founder

 

6. “You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing and falling over.” —Richard Branson, Virgin Group founder

 

7. “No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you’re playing a solo game, you’ll always lose out to a team.” —Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn co-founder

 

8. “Great ideas often receive violent opposition from mediocre minds.” Albert Einstein

 

9. “Enemies are so stimulating” – Katherine Hepburn, Hollywood actress.

 

10. “The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.” Jessica Hische

And here’s an extra one, a Rosy thought – “Give it all you’ve got… start and finish 2014 strong and you will be rewarded.”
