„Instructors must always be positive. Even if someone fails at something, you must have the energy to help them turn it into success.“

—  Koichi Tohei Japanese aikidoka 1920 - 2011
Context: Instructors must always be positive. Even if someone fails at something, you must have the energy to help them turn it into success. When teaching, always compare the correct way with the incorrect way, side by side. Then the reasons for the correct way become obvious. You must know both. 42

„It is a human inclination to hope things will work out, despite evidence or doubt to the contrary. A successful manager must resist this temptation.“

—  Hyman George Rickover United States admiral 1900 - 1986
Context: It is a human inclination to hope things will work out, despite evidence or doubt to the contrary. A successful manager must resist this temptation. This is particularly hard if one has invested much time and energy on a project and thus has come to feel possessive about it. Although it is not easy to admit what a person once thought correct now appears to be wrong, one must discipline himself to face the facts objectively and make the necessary changes — regardless of the consequences to himself. The man in charge must personally set the example in this respect. He must be able, in effect, to "kill his own child" if necessary and must require his subordinates to do likewise.
