Ten Valuable Business Lessons

The other day, someone asked me which business lessons I have found to be the most valuable.

Here are ten, in no particular order:


o “If you can’t explain your great idea to a six year-old, you really don’t understand it.” Albert Einstein

o “S**t in one hand, dream in the other, and see which one you get first.” Ma Guetter

o “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” African proverb

o “Vision without execution is hallucination.” Thomas Edison

o “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” Ann Landers (Eppie Lederer)

o “Dress British but think Yiddish.” Daniel Horowitz

o “Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it.” Voltaire

o “People don’t want quarter-inch drills. They want quarter-inch holes.” Theodore Levitt

o “There is surely nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency what should not be done at all.” Peter Drucker

o “The early bird may get the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.” Steven Wright
