Silence is a form of communication, too. Sometimes less is more.


Discipline Yourself So No One Else Has To

Self-discipline helps you believe in yourself.

Group discipline produces a unified effort toward a common goal.

When disciplining others, be fair, be firm, be consistent.

Discipline helps you finish a job, and finishing is what separates excellent work from average work.


Make Hard Work Your Passion

Do the things that aren’t fun first, and do them well.

Plan your work, and work your plan.

See yourself as self-employed.


Don’t Just Work Hard, Work Smart

Success is about having the right person, in the right place, at the right time.

Know your strengths, weaknesses, and needs.

When you understand yourself and those around you, you are better able to minimize weaknesses and maximize strengths. Personality profiles help.


Put the Team Before Yourself

Teamwork doesn’t come naturally. It must be taught.
