Successful Business Principles

  1. Never compromise your integrity for anyone or anything.
  2. Don’t try to be all things to all people. Learn to say no politely and pleasantly, but immediately and firmly.
  3. Never wait for something to happen. Make it happen! Do it now!
  4. Don’t be overwhelmed by the tasks before you. Don’t try to do everything, just do something.
  5. To accomplish your objective, first, begin. Second, concentrate exclusively on the project at hand. Third, don’t stop.
  6. Let circumstances dictate your priorities. Let priorities determine
    your actions.
  7. Focus your efforts on the crux of the problem. Don’t expend your energy on the peripheral issues that are not crucial to producing results.
  8. For maximum effectiveness, do what you do best and let others do the rest.
  9. Concentrate on the long term, permanent solutions rather than stop-gap measures.
  10. Don’t waste time telling people what you’re doing or what you’re going to do. Results have a way of informing the world.
  11. Don’t make promises you can’t keep. Once made, keep them.
  12. Don’t be tempted to take the easy way out. Have the discipline to
    do the right thing.
  13. Don’t become lax. Play every point as though it were match point.
  14. When the ball is on the one- yard line, don’t risk a fumble. Carry
    it yourself.
  15. Avoid premature celebrations. You’re not through until you’ve
    dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s and the check has cleared
    the bank.
