Rock the boat: To disturb the balance or routine of a situation: He has an easygoing managerial style and won’t rock the boat unless absolutely necessary.

 

 

Motivational Business Quote:

Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.– Richard Branson

Handwriting on the wall: Also, writing on the wall. A warning or presentiment of danger, as in The company was losing money, and seeing the handwriting on the wall, she started to look for another job . This expression comes from the Bible (Daniel 5:5-31), in which the prophet interprets some mysterious writing that a disembodied hand has inscribed on the palace wall, telling King Belshazzar that he will be overthrown.

Motivational Business Quote:

A meeting is an event at which the minutes are kept and the hours are lost. – Unknown

Motivational Business Quote:

You are not your resume, you are your work. – Seth Godin

Stand one’s ground: Also, hold one’s ground; stand fast. Be firm or unyielding, as in You’ve got to respect him for standing his ground when all the others disagree, or I’m going to hold my ground on this issue, or No matter how he votes, I’m standing fast. This idiom, dating from the early 1600s, originally was applied to an army holding its territory against the enemy, but was being used figuratively as well by the end of the 1600s.

Cat´s paw: (Noun) A person used by another person as a dupe, tool or instrument. Example: He was humiliated to learn that he had been made a cat´s paw in the businessman´s unscrupulous dealings.

Motivational Business Quote:

The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same. – Carlos Castaneda

Between a rock and a hard place

Also, between the devil and the deep blue sea or Scylla and Charybdis . Between two equally difficult or unacceptable choices. For example, Trying to please both my boss and his supervisor puts me between a rock and a hard place . The rock and hard place version is the newest of these synonymous phrases, dating from the early 1900s, and alludes to being caught or crushed between two rocks. The oldest is Scylla and Charybdis, which in Homer’s Odyssey signified a monster on a rock (Scylla) and a fatal whirlpool (Charybdis), between which Odysseus had to sail through a narrow passage. It was used figuratively by the Roman writer Virgil and many writers since. The devil in devil and deep blue sea, according to lexicographer Charles Earle Funk, referred to a seam around a ship’s hull near the waterline, which, if a sailor was trying to caulk it in heavy seas, would cause him to fall overboard. Others disagree, however, and believe the phrase simply alludes to a choice between hellfire with the devil and drowning in deep waters.

Motivational Business Quote:

Change is not a threat, it’s an opportunity.Survival is not the goal, transformative success is–

Seth Godin
