I was at a talk today given by Mr. Kevin Wright of IBM regarding Service Science Management and Engineering. He had this great quote at the end that I'd like to share with you all. It's got to do with the immense competition we have in the professional world today, and whether you're a businessman or an IT professional, there's no "easy" way to get around and be successful anymore!
Here's the quote:
It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.
It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or gazelle - when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."
