Basic Leadership - Success Principles
1). Fire anyone who uses the word "can't" more than once in a conversation with you, or whose daily lexicon is filled with excuses about why something is not possible.
2). Look for opportunity where others see despair...you will likely find it. Everything that happens, creates opportunities...study the art of finding them.
3). Nothing is impossible. Say that ten times every morning. Believe it in your heart. Fire anyone that disagrees.
4). Surround yourself with tigers and pirates who make stuff happen rather than the whining sloths who watch stuff happen to them.
5). Place yourself above the daily groanings and whimperings of common and lesser men.
6). Choose your objective and move towards it aggressively, crushing anyone that tries to stop you..others will follow.
7). Know when to quit. If after examining the battlefield, one door is too difficult, abandon it and find an easier door. But don't do that more than once a year.
8). Business is war and as soon as money is involved, you will realize that there are no noble causes, that loyalty must be conditional and limited, and there are no "colleagues", only adversaries.
9). Secrecy of mission is essential. See #8 above.
10). It is not just about winning, because it is always about winning. How you win is up to you to define, but if you are not interested in that, stay home.
