12 rules of Henry Ford
Of course, you know who Henry Ford. If there is one of the most famous American Industrialists, businessmen and inventors of the twentieth century. His company thrives today, and his idea was that the car was for everyone, what actually happened. He produced the cheapest car in the infancy of the automotive industry. Now the Ford company is one of the largest corporations in the world. We believe that this person is quite possible to learn anything and therefore have gathered for you all the most interesting of his statements.
My secret of success is the ability to understand the point of view of another person and see things from him and from his point of view.And really, how often do we not realize that our vision is not enough. When there is a conflict, it needs to be addressed, taking into account someone else’s point of view, otherwise you may lose something extremely important.
Failure is the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. There is no shame in fair failure, a shame to be afraid to fail.Probably it happened that you gave up immediately when faced with the first difficulties. So, your small firm can go broke, and the idea may seem absurd to investors, and maybe your film will be considered slag and tasteless – the list is endless, but if you really love what you do, never drop it and start again.
I don’t know what the result will bring me advertising, but even if I make a dollar I will invest it in advertising.
Important for our small businesses, which do not reckon with advertisers and do not take seriously their advice. For many advertising is emptiness. But that’s why part of the business works almost to zero. Henry Ford was not stupid and invest in advertising as much as was necessary.
When it seems that the whole world is against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind.And again, you can be surrounded by numerous enemies, however they can make you stronger.
If you think you are capable of something, you are right, if you think you will fail you are also right.Confidence is the Foundation for any business. And if you’re constantly complaining that there is nothing you can’t do it, you piece of shit and nothing to do with it, then maybe you really don’t need to take anything serious?
The hardest thing in the world is to think with your own head. That is probably why so few people do it.
You’ve probably seen how often people want to simplify your life that completely kills my desire to consciously draw their own conclusions. Why do that when there’s a TV, right? But if you want to achieve something in life, you have to think for yourself and not rely on others.
Quality is doing something right, even when nobody is looking.Unlike a good businessman and bad not only in profit. A good businessman will always monitor the quality of their work. It is this giving to the world what remains in the history and in good people’s memory.
If you require someone to give their time and energy for business, make sure that he had not experienced financial difficulties.The eternal problem of the Russian startups and newly-minted businessmen who exploit the artists, designers, writers. No, normal people don’t work for free, nor should they. And if you want your business to prosper, make it so that your workers were satisfied with their financial condition. Then you will and loyalty, and dedication.
I don’t care where a man came from the prison at sing sing or Harvard. We hire the person, not the story.
Prejudice to some degree, maybe a defense mechanism, but you don’t have to come only from them. Try to understand man, to know his advantages as well as a look at his work. And maybe some snakes will really work much better than the guy with the red diploma of the best University in the country.
They are everywhere – those strange people who don’t know, yesterday is yesterday, and who Wake up every morning from my mind.The world is dramatically changing. And what worked yesterday won’t necessarily work today. Any modern and follow General trends, it will help you easily cope with many challenges. Never dwell on the past.
You can’t build a reputation on what you INTEND to do.Yes, you can say everything, but to do a little bit. So all the thoughts out loud without having any material component – just the usual chatter, which should not be spread until it will not be something worthwhile.
Old teach us that you need to save money, to postpone until better times. This is very bad advice, do not listen. Do not collect nickels in a jar. Invest in their development. Forty years I have not saved a single dollar, everything was invested in further development.How little has changed in 100 years! Elderly people continues to teach us to save money, and we, as before, wasting them on nonsense. But not if you want to succeed, invest and develop yourself. Money must work and not be in the Bank. It always starts small, and therefore invest.
