“The next best thing to being clever is being able to quote someone who is.”
—Mary Pettibone Poole, 20th Century Author of aphorisms
In some ways, we are all in the entertainment business. Personally or professionally, it is our intention to bring attention to our important thoughts and ideas.
Over the years of The Quotable Coach series, I’ve encouraged our readers to focus on being interested rather than interesting.
Let’s face it: Sometimes we just want others to be interested in what we have to say. Unfortunately, our thinking is not always as attention-worthy as we think it is.
If we are reasonably well read and informed, we can utilize the originality and clever thinking of others to break through and make the point we deem relevant and important.
Where can you share the wisdom and cleverness of others to have the influence and impact you desire?
Please give credit (where credit is due) to the various sources of such cleverness, and they may reciprocate by using a quote from you at some point!
