Quote of the Day (Adm. Hyman Rickover, on the Best Focus of a Manager’s Energy)

“The human tendency is to while away time with unimportant matters that do not require mental effort or energy. Since they can be easily resolved, they give a false sense of accomplishment. The manager must exert self-discipline to ensure that his energy is focused where it is truly needed.”— Admiral Hyman Rickover (1900-1986), the “Father of the Nuclear Navy,” in “Doing a Job,” speech at Columbia University, Nov. 5, 1981
