Effective managers live in the present -- but concentrate on the future.

"Jingshen" is the Mandarin word for spirit and vivacity. It is an important word for those who would lead, because above all things, spirit and vivacity set effective organizations apart from those that will decline and die.

Money does motivate but only for a short time and only as long as it serves as a measure of worth or of power or of victory.
