The former United States Secretary of State Colin Powell once said, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” The business world is full of twists and turns and successful business people learn very quickly that they must be flexible and adapt to the unexpected. Business leaders are constantly making decisions that will affect their business. Over the years, there has been a lot written about how to succeed in business. I have always believed that if you focus your attention on your people, your people will take care of your clients and your clients will help make your business successful. There are hundreds of tenants for success in business. Here are a few that I believe in and follow:
- A simple strategy is better than an overly complex strategy.
- Great people who excel at their jobs are the lifeblood of every business.
- A great business leader’s value cannot be underestimated.
- Leaders in business must constantly strive to be better tomorrow than they were today.
- Whenever possible, it is always better to over communicate.
- Following perfection at all costs is the enemy of good.
- Consistent and mindful effort from bright, hard-working people eventually leads to good results.
- Sustaining a business requires a balance of passion, dedication and energy.
