96. Steve Drum – Performance Under Pressure
“If we want to be consistent in our performance, we must know really who we are, what we stand for and who we aspire to be, where we want to go. And from that, we have to flesh out our values, our personal beliefs, and then most importantly, we need to figure out how we live them through principled actions.” — Steve Drum
