What people think and believe and plan are all very important, but what they do is the thing that counts most.
All that counts in life is intention.
Being away a lot on tour means that my family has to suffer an inordinate amount of overcompensation, as I return home with skewed ideas of what counts as quality time. I will force everyone into a cinema trip, insistent that three hours in the dark in silence is the perfect way for us all to re-engage.
In this game you can waste a lot of energy wondering about other people’s opinions when the one that actually counts is yours. Because that’s your job, to lead and to manage.

We believe… that the applause of silence is the only kind that counts.

MEMRI counts the federal government as a customer for its analysis, and the MEMRI logo is often visible on the B-roll video of major news networks. Other private firms create their own information rather than tracking that of others.
Of course I climbed Everest without oxygen, but it’s not the end of the story for me. The summit itself is not what counts. It’s how’d you get there, what’d you climb, and there are really great opportunities to climb on this mountain. It’s a beautiful place.
Coming from the world of animation, every single line counts; every single gesture counts. You put thought into every single one of those things and the way a frame is composed.
To be a manager, you have to perform always. You cannot live in history. It’s now and tomorrow that counts.
The world cares very little about what a man or woman knows; it is what a man or woman is able to do that counts.
I’m not sure whether it counts as a talent, but I love playing ‘Magic: The Gathering.’ It’s mathematical and intellectually challenging, and makes me feel nostalgic for when I played as a kid.
The first less is this: take it from me, every vote counts.
