“A ‘no’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.” – Ghandi

I came across this quote thanks to my fellow TEDxAmsterdam blogger Barbara (if you’re slightly interested in food, design and sustainability than go read her blog). I read it just after having a vivid discussion with a colleague about a project that a client tries to push but that I, as a consultant, don’t believe in. The quote strengthened my feeling that I was doing the right thing by saying we won’t be doing the project. Now it’s our turn to create something new, have everyone inspired and get a yes from the client :)

I found this Ghandi statue in my former street, Churchilllaan in Amsterdam. I’m ashamed to admit I only noticed it three years after living there.
