I believe that almost every successful business person has built an operational foundation on these three time-tested truths:
1. People, not technology, make an organization successful.
The best companies hire the best people. Even the most innovative piece of technology can not replace what hiring the best people can do for an organization.
2. Quality counts.
A top quality staff, a quality product or service, and high quality treatment of customers and employees. No organization will ever be faulted for maintaining an unwavering commitment to quality.
3. Time is money.
Time is a valuable commodity. Time can be spent, wasted, borrowed, budgeted, saved, or invested. Ultimately, time is a limited resource that we must use wisely to accomplish our goals.
Remembering these three time-tested truths can have a profound impact on how we structure our everyday activities. When we consistently focus on hiring the best people, delivering quality results, and investing our time wisely, we’ll routinely find success well within our reach!
