Timeless wisdom for supply chain managers

timeless wisdom

In view of the rapid advances in technology, the world seems to be on the brink of a new age and a new generation. This inevitably leads to changes and uncertainty. When looking for clarity, it can be beneficial to reflect on wise words that have been said in the past and to consider whether they are still applicable today.

Over the past eleven years, the well-known Dutch illustrator Erik Kriek has created some terrific illustrations for the Supply Chain Magazine and Supply Chain Movement publications. One day, when browsing through his great body of work and my personal collection of timeless quotes by numerous thought leaders, I decided to compile this booklet.

The wisdom in this booklet is very inspiring, whether you are reading the quotes for the first time or have heard them before. The accompanying illustrations by Erik Kriek have all been carefully chosen to enhance the quotes and make them easier to remember, and in some cases they add an interesting twist to the insights. This booklet is not for sale, but a promotional gift to my readers.

Regarding the future, my personal word of advice is:

“Be mentally prepared for anything, expect nothing.”

Next to health and happiness, I wish you all an INSPIRING and CREATIVE 2018!
