I’m a sucker for a good way of saying it.  That’s probably one of the reasons that I love Peter Drucker’s writing.  Very clear.  Very direct.  He had a distinctive way of saying things.

I tripped across this paragraph today in an article over on John Maxwell’s Leadership Wired.

"Popularity and productivity sound
like fraternal twins, but in reality they can look as different as
Paris Hilton and Warren Buffet. If productivity is a Honda Civic, then
popularity is a Lamborghini Diablo with a bad transmission. In
leadership, substance trumps style—every time."

How’s that for language.  "A Lamborghini Diablo with a bad transmission."  You can almost hear John Maxwell saying it, can’t you?
