In almost every job now, people use software and work with information to enable their organisation to operate more effectively.

Prior to ‘Insidious Chapter 3,’ I was happy to write movies for James Wan to direct as I felt very much that I was one half of a duo. I looked at us as a team who works together and I was happy to be part of that, I was happy to effectively be the bass player in The Beatles.
Leigh Whannell
If we don’t have accurate information, if we are not able to tell difficult truth one to another, we will never be able to effectively design a policy for Iraq.
Jack Reed
I have come to understand that in order to effectively advance women’s rights, we need to galvanize a global women’s movement.
Zainab Salbi
Stanford had no journalism program so I just learned by doing, effectively.
John Pomfret
It is clearly a political move to remove 8chan from Cloudflare. It has forced a lot of people to find other places to talk. It has dispersed a peacefully assembled group of people talking. This silenced them effectively.
Jim Watkins
It is of course true that many of our universities are large and complex organisations, requiring highly skilled individuals to run them effectively.
Jo Johnson
When I thought of the word ‘Himmatwala,’ I couldn’t think of anyone other that Ajay Devgn who could do justice to the role. He is a great actor and can portray emotions, anger and action effectively.
Sajid Khan
When we visited with legislative counsel, they told us that the only way to effectively accomplish what we were trying to do was to put the words in the legislation.
Doug Ose
In TV, when you come in to direct an episode, you are effectively learning an established language; you then have to try to learn to speak it really well. But on a movie, you are the guy. You are creating the language; you make most of the decisions.
Alan Taylor
I agree with those who say that democracies need to work together more effectively to stand up for the liberal democratic model that China is increasingly challenging. It’s important for there to be an alliance of democracies.
David Lidington
We can work on sharpening our prescribing practices, wo

We can work on sharpening our prescribing practices, working with clinicians to ensure we’re treating pain safely and effectively.
Vivek Murthy
Going into the 2012 election, I worried that without effectively connecting with the youth vote, the GOP risked losing the millennial generation for the rest of their lives.
Margaret Hoover
When people know and care about their neighbors, they show up for each other in tough times and work together more effectively to boost quality of life in all the times in between.
Michelle Wu
Shortly after assuming the role of senior adviser in the Trump White House, world leaders began to take note of Ivanka Trump’s ability to engage in diplomacy effectively – a skill she has consistently used to help benefit women in the workplace.
Kayleigh McEnany
We know that recognition and intrinsic motivation are important to our success, but the key is finding ways to effectively operationalize them.
Shawn Achor
We’ve learned a lot about how information needs to flow effectively amongst a group of people. They need to be fed information, and it needs to be on this constant conveyor belt.
D. B. Weiss
I wanted to be of service to the Peace League, and how could I better do so than by trying to write a book which should propagate its ideas? And I could do it most effectively, I thought, in the form of a story.
Bertha von Suttner
I think we are, certainly in the Department of Justice, a fan of some of the data-mining techniques that will allow us to more effectively zero in on fraud.
Tony West
‘Alice’ is effectively a story about a game of cards. ‘Through the Looking Glass’ is a story of chess.
James Bobin
I believe politics is a team sport. That, for awful and unfortunate reasons beyond any of our control, the American system only allows, effectively, for two teams.
Rick Perlstein
I personally believe this Agency has always been very dedicated and has always worked as hard as it possibly can to do things as safely and as effectively as possible.
Mark Kelly
The United States has an unfair advantage, as most of the popular cloud services, search engines, computer and mobile operating systems or web browsers are made by U.S. companies. When the rest of the world uses the net, they are effectively using U.S.-based services, making them a legal target for U.S. intelligence.
Mikko Hypponen
So our problem is not Labour, it is us, is making us attractive enough to gain disillusioned Labour support and to compete effectively with the Lib Dems for those loose votes.
Francis Maude
I have damaged nerve endings on the right side, so my piano style comes from designing stuff I can play with my right hand. And some of it effectively mimics classical stuff.
Leon Russell
I feel like the business side came more naturally to me along with the product design side, but managing and effectively leading large organizations of people is something that is perpetually challenging and the topic on which I am constantly looking for good advice.
Stewart Butterfield
The child inside of you knows how to take things as they come, how to deal most effectively and happily with everything and everyone it encounters on this planet. If you can recapture that childlike essence of your being, you can stay ‘forever young at heart.’
Wayne Dyer
With ‘Stones is His Pockets’ you have effectively a bare stage with two actors and yet a whole world in rural Ireland is created. There’s the countryside, the bar interior, the dressing room and the star’s bedroom.
Ian McElhinney
The significance and volume of repairs that are needed across the country demand that we give state and local governments the long-term certainty they need to effectively execute these projects.
Sam Graves
No one tells you that your life is effectively over when you have a child: that you’re never going to draw another complacent breath again… or that whatever level of hypochondria and rage you’d learned to repress and live with is going to seem like the good old days.
Anne Lamott
Since the break-up of the 1990s, Russia has not had winter sports facilities. All the winter sport venues were effectively located in countries that are no longer part of the federation. There is a strong argument for saying Sochi’s legacy will be this country will have winter sports facilities it did not have before.
Sebastian Coe
To effectively fight the coronavirus crisis, we have to make sure that every person has access to quality, affordable health coverage.
Sharice Davids
Ten years ago in Nairobi we said that the participation of women in the decision-making and appraisal processes of the United Nations was essential if the organization was to effectively serve women’s interests.
Jenny Shipley
Furthermore, I don’t believe you have to be quite that competitive to compete effectively. Beyond a certain point, all that bearing down is self-defeating.
Philip Anschutz
For anybody out there… who are parents who are taking care of an elderly parent or an adult child with disabilities, they know that if you don’t have an infrastructure of care to support your loved ones, you can’t effectively work, you can’t effectively interact in the 21st century economy.
Brian Deese
Young people know how to use these social networking tools, and they know how to use them effectively.
Edward Norton
A highly visible, shared identity can help bring activists from different backgrounds together with a common sense of purpose and push for change more effectively – from the global stage to within their own communities and families.
Efua Dorkenoo
I recognize that as governor, my job is to sit on the other side of the table from the public sector unions and negotiate effectively on behalf of all the taxpayers of the state, including all of you.
Rob McKenna
I keep my hip-hop as hip-hop, my R&B as R&B and my pop as pop. The ability to cross those boundaries and do all these things effectively is not commonly done.
Scott Storch
By putting the employee first, the customer effectively comes first by default, and in the end, the shareholder comes first by default as well.
Richard Branson
By definition, of course, we believe the person with a stigma is not quite human. On this assumption we exercise varieties of discrimination, through which we effectively, if often unthinkingly, reduce his life chances.
Erving Goffman
As far as the adjectives that I lead with, I think a writer and a comedienne are first. I have never qualified my experience or gender or my race, although I know that’s a huge component on how that is used. But I think in order for me to do my job effectively, I have to really be the best at what it is I’m doing.
Natasha Rothwell
Effectively, change is almost impossible without indust

Effectively, change is almost impossible without industry-wide collaboration, cooperation and consensus.
Simon Mainwaring
Your ability to shape your future depends on how well you communicate where you want to be when you get there. When ideas are communicated effectively, people follow and change.
Nancy Duarte
In order to predict effectively, we need to use science. And the reason that we need to use science is because then we can reproduce what we’re doing; it’s not just wisdom or guesswork. And if we can predict, then we can engineer the future.
Bruce Bueno de Mesquita
I don’t know what the instinct is, to save every report card, every half-sentence scribbled note, but my mother did it pretty effectively, and I’ve done it to a fare-thee-well.
Sally Mann
I think the media has portrayed conservatives as these cold, heartless people who want poor people to die and let half the population starve and all this. They’ve done that so effectively because they’ve owned the narrative for so long.
Dave Rubin
Figuring out what your players do well and finding a system that will work effectively for them gives you the best chance of winning.
Tom Thibodeau
Since her landmark ‘Tapestry,’ Carole King has both oversimplified and over elaborated that masterful album’s style until her music has become something more overtly but less effectively personal.
Jon Landau
Rock and ambient music might as well reside on opposite sides of the galaxy, so it’s almost shocking when a band like Deerhunter melds the two so effectively.
Anthony Fantano
I’m confident that the wrong cinematographer on a project can very much derail the mood and the feeling on set when you’re trying to create a bubble of trust, effectively.
Greig Fraser
There is definitely a balance that I have to strike both in terms of supporting the Police Bureau – making sure they have the tools and the resources they need to do their jobs effectively. But I also have an important role to play when it comes to oversight and accountability.
Ted Wheeler
No single institution or effort can effectively create solutions for societal problems.
Rohini Nilekani
That’s why I do what I do, and that’s why I wanted to be an actress from the time I was six years old. If I can’t effectively move people, then I would prefer not to do it.
Viola Davis
Unlike the visible and heavily regulated airborne emissions from power plant smokestacks, coal ash is largely unseen unless there is a major spill and, until recently, far less effectively regulated.
Tatiana Schlossberg
It is impossible to effectively monitor the huge volume of videos that are out there. It is often difficult to find out who owns the copyright on individual videos. Differing copyright laws in different countries also make the whole process harder.
Steve Chen
What works most effectively for quelling disease outbreaks like Ebola is not quarantining huge populations. What works is focusing on and isolating the sick and those in direct contact with them as they are at highest risk of infection. This strategy worked with SARS, and it worked during the H1N1 flu pandemic.
Tom Frieden
The social business marketplace is effectively forcing brands to engage with consumers on the basis of something that is meaningful to them. More often than not, this takes the form of some core value that finds expression in a non-profit cause.
Simon Mainwaring
Well, logos is science or reason, something that helps us to function practically and effectively in the world, and it must therefore be closely in tune and reflect accurately the realities of the world around us.
Karen Armstrong
There are just two things you can do to win a Nobel prize – have a good idea and pursue it effectively.
Ivar Giaever
The French repulsed wave after wave of frontal attacks at Dien Bien Phu. The 1968 Tet offensive against the U.S. was a military disaster that effectively destroyed the Viet Cong. But Giap persisted and prevailed.
John McCain
Donovan McNabb has great, fast feet and has learned to lock them in to run the Eagles’ offense effectively.
Steve Young
Because of the excellent training in Malayalam cinema, where we have very tight budgets, you are forced to make it work in a small budget and at the same time you have to tell the story effectively.
Priyadarshan
By alienating Muslim communities and our closest allies, Mr. Trump would destroy the partnerships we need to effectively fight terror.
Antony Blinken
A general principle of good taxation is that similar jobs, and similar kinds of compensation, should be taxed the same way: otherwise, the government is effectively subsidizing some jobs over others.
James Surowiecki
Dealing with depression effectively is a mark not of weakness, but of strength.
Andrew Solomon
The last Hague Conference has in the meantime expressed its opinion that a body should be established which could prepare for the work involved more effectively than has hitherto proved possible.
Fredrik Bajer
I think running the ball effectively is the key to winning games in the playoffs.
Derrick Henry
Pregnant women who are in places where Zika is spreading should do everything they can to avoid mosquito bites. And we, as a society, need to do everything we can to control Zika. That means learning more about it; that means controlling mosquitoes more effectively. That means achieving a vaccine.
Tom Frieden
Recent history shows that leaders in both parties are fanatics on the topic of immigration, and they cannot be trusted to effectively enforce any significant border measure.
Laura Ingraham
We’ve been paying for 100 percent of preventive care. But if you’re not getting annual physicals, then you’re not going to gain a financial incentive, so effectively your insurance premium with us will go up.
Steven Burd
I think most of the world would like to be Scottish. All the Americans who come here never look for English blood or Welsh, only for Scottish and Irish. It’s understandable. The Scots effectively created the face of the modern world: the railways, the bridges, the tunnels.
Joanna Lumley
There are people who are bound journalistically to a code of ethics that means they can’t quote something that isn’t sourced, whereas what I do is entirely unsourced. I effectively fictionalise history and yet somehow aim at a greater truth.
Peter Morgan
Any kind of new U.K. federal system would almost certai

Any kind of new U.K. federal system would almost certainly demand the creation of a written constitution. Properly drafted, such a document could, among many things, pin down more effectively the proper dimensions of prime ministerial power.
Linda Colley
One of the essential elements of government responsibility is to communicate effectively to the American people, especially in time of a potential terrorist attack or a natural disaster.
Vito Fossella
I’ve spent a lot of time self-reflecting. Especially as an actor, you have to know yourself really well in order to do things effectively. And when I dress, I dress for me. I don’t dress to make other people think that I’m this way or that way.
Teddy Sears
To effectively create the image of an enemy you have to show first of all that the enemy is extremely dangerous, but on the other hand less than human.
Masha Gessen
I think if you do something effectively whether you’re the lover or the comic or the action guy or the villain like I play; movies are very expensive to make. Chances are you’ll get asked to play that part again.
Christopher Walken
Firefighters are essential to the safety and security of our local communities. We owe it to these men and women to provide them with better training and equipment so they can do their jobs more effectively and safely.
Carl Levin
Through our effective campaign-management strategies, we’re seizing opportunities to capture additional insights on customer behaviors, allowing us to reach and communicate with them more effectively.
Mindy Grossman
Effectively, as a cinematographer, I am always on the lookout for a project that makes me want to go to the cinema.
Greig Fraser
We need the federal government to assert their supremacy over the immigration issue and make it clear to state legislatures, cowboy cops, and the American people that the federal government is in charge and effectively enforcing and regulating immigration.
Luis Gutierrez
In its Declaration of Independence on May 15, 1948, Israel stretched out its hand in peace to its Arab neighbors, calling for an end to war and bloodshed. In response, seven Arab states invaded Israel. The U.N. resolution that partitioned the country was thus violated and effectively annulled.
Yitzhak Shamir
The more we can organize, find and manage information, the more effectively we can function in our modern world.
Vint Cerf
The famous convention of 1787 met in Philadelphia to define the additional powers needed to enable Congress to do its job effectively. Instead, the convention proposed a brand new national government.
Edmund Morgan
Among the responsibilities of each citizen in a participatory democracy is keeping ourselves sufficiently informed so that we can participate effectively, argue our positions honorably, and hopefully, forge sufficient consensus to understand each other and then to govern.
Ben Sasse
The broken consumer credit market had to be repaired by making sure that consumers had the right information and could use it effectively. That meant consolidating the bloated patchwork of ineffective agencies and regulations so that a single agency could act as a voice for consumers.
Elizabeth Warren
We use the Heidelberg Catechism in our worship. Sometimes we read it responsively. Other times I’ll work it into my communion liturgy. I’ll quote it in my sermons from time to time. I’ve seen the Catechism used effectively as Sunday school material.
Kevin DeYoung
I don’t use film in the way that the great auteurs do. I use film, the camera, to record as effectively and as perceptive as I am able what I want to say through the actors.
Richard Attenborough
Any small business that’s predicated on technological innovation and is differentiated and superior can expand globally very effectively using the Internet as a vehicle for promotion.
John Quelch
I think I showed I’m resilient, I’m strong, I can go the distance against a bigger man and still box effectively.
Mikey Garcia
It’s really a question of fairness and what kind of country we’re going to live in. There are 22,000 people making over $1 million. They’re paying an effective tax rate in the teens. As Warren Buffett said, he pays less in taxes effectively than his secretary does. That’s not right.
David Plouffe
As a young man growing up in that era, I was very influenced by Hendrix and took to a wah wah, and I learned how to really use one effectively as Hendrix did.
Rickey Medlocke
Because Scotland and Northern Ireland want to remain part of the E.U., there is the quite real possibility that Scotland and even Northern Ireland might now choose to go their own way on membership within the E.U. and the ‘United Kingdom’ would suddenly effectively be only England and Wales.
Peter Bergen
Hamas has effectively kidnapped Gaza. Instead of turning it into the Singapore of the Middle East that was promised, they have turned it into a fortress of terror.
Naftali Bennett
I write slowly by hand. Publishing is effectively bankrupt for you unless you are Danielle Steele. It takes a year to write book and advances are going down or disappearing.
Erica Jong
For market discipline to constrain risk effectively, financial institutions must be allowed to fail. Under optimal financial regulatory and financial system infrastructures, such a failure would not threaten the overall system.
Henry Paulson
I don’t think you can create effectively toward expectation. I’m not in the service business.
Nic Pizzolatto
The Obama administration contends that starting a for-profit business means leaving religious liberty behind. The administration has effectively told the Supreme Court that for-profit companies have no right to act on moral convictions the government opposes. They are about profits. That position is deeply mistaken.
Josh Hawley
The book says, ‘Vanity Fair – a story without a hero.’ Becky is effectively the protagonist, the hero we follow. But she is flawed. Becky is a subject of her own time.
Tom Bateman
Look at ‘Avatar:’ the foreign ticket sales were over twice the domestic returns. The mind boggles at those kinds of numbers, but that’s what you get when you effectively reach out to a global audience. If that kind of thing came to comics, it would undoubtedly change how people perceive the mainstream industry.
Chris Claremont
I think it’s great when people accuse me, almost always falsely, of promoting conspiracy theories, because that shows how effective I am at messaging and how effectively I can use social media.
Mike Cernovich
Getting your house in order and reducing the confusion gives you more control over your life. Personal organization some how releases or frees you to operate more effectively.
Larry King
Everyone knows what search engines are. But relatively few know how to use them effectively.
Marc Ostrofsky
Film gives us the luxury of deciding where the viewpoin

Film gives us the luxury of deciding where the viewpoint of the audience is, and by knowing that, we can very effectively design around what is actually seen on camera.
Freddie Wong
We have a responsibility to make sure that the limited resources we have are spent efficiently and effectively and that programs achieve their mission.
James T. Walsh
A coach’s role, effectively speaking, is to stay in the background and let the onus be on the players.
Ravi Shastri
I effectively stood on the shoulders of a giant to make a little bit of noise myself. I’m a by-product of Muhammad Ali.
Chris Eubank Sr.
At tax time, people are going to say, ‘Gee, if the IRS asks for documents from me, and I destroy them, I wouldn’t get away with that.’ But that’s effectively what Commissioner Koskinen has been able to get away with.
Ron DeSantis
Only the Liberal Democrats have probed the government’s failings consistently, thoroughly and effectively.
Charles Kennedy
I want to make sure we are spending wisely and using our resources effectively to address the issues facing San Francisco, while reaching residents throughout our entire City.
London Breed
My view is we should be doing everything we can to come up with ways of exploiting the current technology effectively.
Geoffrey Hinton
Most athletes are media shy. They keep to themselves and to their training. I’m not saying it is absolutely necessary for them to come out and face the cameras with confidence, but if they do, it will only help them. They will find themselves closer to their fans and will also get their word across more effectively.
Vijender Singh
The competition between me and Bill Gates, probably: Who can spend money more effectively that can do better philanthropy.
Jack Ma
To live effectively is to live with adequate information.
Norbert Wiener
In a true democracy, there has to be a line between deliberative debate and mob rule. Trump has crossed the line, and much of the media has exacerbated the problem by treating his remarks as entertainment, effectively encouraging his competition to do the same.
Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
People who want to express themselves effectively can learn a lot from the hard-won concision of the copywriter.
David Droga
