Highlights from “The Excellence Dividend” by Tom Peters

On the topic of “excellence as a core strategy”, the book does a great job of providing great insights and quite a bit of food for thought and practice.

As for presentation style, it uses a style almost identical to that of “The Little Big Things” by Tom Peters. While I would have preferred a bit more structure, this style made is an quick read. So, no major complains here :)

As for highlights, the layout of the book makes many text fragments highlights — literally :) Even so, I figured I’d capture some here; a few of these are quotes.

The following are a list of quotes at the end of the book.

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and well preserved piece, but to skid across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out leaking oil, shouting, “Geronimo!”” — Bill Mckenna
