"But if you have to choose between someone with a staggering IQ and an elite education who's gliding along, and someone with a lower IQ but who is absolutely determined to succeed, you'll always do better with the second person.

I didn't always understand that. I too was of the mind that the better education and pedigree, the smarter the person. But that's not true. You're searching for people with enormous drive for winning. These people get their satisfaction from getting things done."

Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan in "Execution - The Discipline of Getting Things Done", p. 119
