The nature of power

April 18th, 2012

Today’s quote is from Merlin Mann:

Don’t let the guy with the broom decide how many elephants should be in the parade.

(Because he has a very limited idea of what an elephant means)

Later in the podcast he had another good quote:

You can judge a person’s power, anywhere in the world, but particularly in an organisation, not based on what they say no to, but what they have the power to say yes to.
