Want to get and stay inspired? Build a wall of quotes
Every time Howard Behar, former Starbucks executive and author of It’s Not About the Coffee, heard or read an insight he didn’t want to forget, he wrote it down. His office walls were covered with these quotes — which he used as both guidance system and launching pad for conversations with the Starbucks team.
“Making these lessons permanent and putting them where I could see them every day reinforced what was important to me,” Behar says. “We need to be reminded of what is important, of the lessons we’ve learned, and of the things that guide how we work and how we live our lives.”
What words of wisdom would you like to return to again and again? It’s easy to make your own quote wall, and definitely worth the effort. Think of it as a banquet of food for thought.
