Quote by Peter F. Drucker
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right thing.
This quote emphasizes the distinction between management and leadership. It suggests that management is focused on efficiently carrying out tasks and processes successfully. On the other hand, leadership refers to being guided by a moral compass and making decisions that are ethically and morally correct. While both are necessary in an organization, this quote highlights that leadership involves a broader perspective that includes considering the long-term impact of actions and making choices that align with values and principles.
There are persons who cannot make friends. Who are they? Those who cannot be friends. It is not the want of understanding or good nature, of entertaining or useful qualities, that you complain of: on the contrary, they have probably many points of attraction; but they have one that neutralizes all these --they care nothing about you, and are neither the better nor worse for what you think of them. They manifest no joy at your approach; and when you leave them, it is with a feeling that they can do just as well without you. This is not sullenness, nor indifference, nor absence of mind; but they are intent solely on their own thoughts, and you are merely one of the subjects they exercise them upon. They live in society as in a solitude.
