“Reaching your potential is not simply about dreaming or being idealistic, It is a process that involve specific actions, exercises, discipline and hard work. It is challenging, rewarding and unending.”
Robert Steven Kaplan, What You're Really Meant To Do: A Road Map for Reaching Your Unique Potential

“you follow your own path, I don’t know how much money you will accumulate, how much stature you will achieve, or how many titles you will garner. But if you’re true to your convictions and principles, I know you’re far more likely to feel like a big success. In the end, that feeling will make all the difference.”
Robert S. Kaplan, What You're Really Meant to Do: A Road Map for Reaching Your Unique Potential

“If you can measure it, you can manage it.”
Robert S. Kaplan, Strategy Maps: Converting Intangible Assets Into Tangible Outcomes
