Some lines are more than just memorable. They reverberate long after they were spoken. This line from my friend Carl George has continued to come up in my own work for almost 25 years:
"Leaders allocate the finite resources to the critical growth path." Carl George
When I use this line I always point out three things:
1. Resources are finite. They are not infinite.
2. There is a critical growth path. There may be more than one path, but there is one that is critical.
3. Only leaders are willing to make this choice. All others blink.
