Excellence in Action

Posted: October 30, 2014 in Uncategorized


Tom Peters pointed out eight basics for excellence, which can guide a manager to practice management excellence. I really stick with the first basic: Bias for Action.

There is no way that an organization can succeed without having managers who search for excellence and execute operations with excellence (Action). Managers are accountable for leading and improving organizational excellence at the time that inspire their team members to deliver excellence in their operations (Action).

Are you a manager in search for excellence? As manager, do you have a bias for action?

When Management Fails

Posted: January 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

Geoffrey James wrote about the five dumbest management concepts in BNET’s blog. Downsizing is one of them and he remarks that downsizing is a failure of management to be, in other words, effective and proactive.

I agree with him in terms that MBA students are taught to be leaders, to inspire employees, to use modern management techniques to make better decisions. The truth is at what extent all these techniques are effective or efficient in the real world of the operations on a daily basis.

MBA schools have to provide a more realistic approach and put more emphasis on tactics than strategies. All the researches about management, statistics, market analysis and new tools or techniques are nice, and don’t get me wrong, I like them; but, they are really effective, efficient, down to earth, aren’t they?

Looking For Inspiration?

Posted: December 20, 2010 in General Thoughts

We have moments when we need to be inspired. We look for people, messages or quotes to revive our souls. We can look for them from different sources. I want to refer now to martial arts’ quotes to re-think about our lives and how we live.

“The only time we fail is when we stop trying.”

Chuck Norris

He who conquers himself has won a greater victory than he who conquers a city.


The athlete who is building muscles though weight training should be very sure to work adequately on speed and flexibility at the same time. In combat, without the prior attributes, a strong man will be like the bull with its colossal strength futilely pursuing the matador or like a low-geared truck chasing a rabbit.

Bruce Lee

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

Bruce Lee

Simplicity is the key to brilliance.

Bruce Lee

Without knowledge action is useless and knowledge without action is futile.
Abu Bakr

Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
Joel A. Barker



The Art Of War

Posted: December 17, 2010 in General Thoughts

We have learned some strategies and tactics from wars to apply to business management. Some have been more effective than others. The art of war should be used to learn how to compete within a win-win environment where everyone involves in the process has benefits.

However, I want to refer another art of war: Karate. I am pretty sure that most mixed martial artists wonder how a fight against a karateka would be. There is not an answer. As I stated in a before post, it is about the spirit and the fighter.

Anyway, I want to share with you the following video and let me know what you think:
