Tattoos for (self) managers – @execupundit

Mr Execupundit offers some suggestions for that irresistible managerial tattoo, including:

  • “We will either find a way, or make one.” – Hannibal
  • “If you start to take Vienna, take Vienna.” – Napoleon
  • “Optimism is a force multiplier.” – Colin Powell

I worked with a great leader who always used that Colin Powell quote.

Interestingly, if only because I’ve just discovered it myself, Marcus Aurelius died in Vienna (Vindobona as it was then) on March 17, 180AD. There is a (rather uninteresting) Mark Aurel Strasse close to the Roman Museum (Römermuseum) on Hoher Markt in the city centre.
