Quotes

..."I clear my mind and try to enjoy where I am, and what I'm doing," he says. "If I am taking a walk, I am enjoying the walk. I am not taking a walk and thinking about five clients. I am not worrying about how I am going to execute that shoot next week. I am just focusing on that walk."
"I think one thing to think about is maybe some of these devices don’t work as consumers expect them to," says NPD's Arnold, "There may be some of that--a gap between what consumers expect and what technology now is ready to deliver."
..."I think leaders have a huge challenge to recognize what's not working--is it teaching us something, or just draining resources?" she says. "We had a program that involved youth, and from the beginning the structure didn't work. You could tell the people were really trying, but it looked like a plant growing not in its native habitat. So we had to go back to the drawing board and find new partners and a new place. And we did, and it worked."
...wellness, and we want to extend this expertise to people anywhere," said Paul Limburg of Mayo Clinic Global Business Solutions in a press release. "People consistently tell us they want more convenient access to Mayo Clinic knowledge. We collaborated with and invested in Better to create a powerful way for people to connect with Mayo Clinic in their homes and communities, wherever they are."
