A Quote by Dr. W. Edwards Deming on aim, clarity, future, judgment, life, planning, and value

It is important that an aim never be defined in terms of activity or methods. It must always relate directly to how life is better for everyone. . . . The aim of the system must be clear to everyone in the system. The aim must include plans for the future. The aim is a value judgment.
