Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not. It is the first lesson that ought to be learned.

(Thomas H. Huxley, 1825 - 1895)

Work Principle of the Day

A Great Organization has both Great People and a Great Culture...

Companies that get progressively better over time have both. Nothing is more important or more difficult than to get the culture and people right.

A happiness that is sought for ourselves alone  can never be found: for a happiness that is diminished by being shared is not big enough to make us happy. There is a false and momentary happiness in self satisfaction, but it always leads to sorrow because it narrows and deadens our spirit. True happiness is found in unselfish love, a love which increases in proportion as it is shared. There is no end to sharing of love, and, therefore, the potential happiness of such love is without limit.

(Thomas Merton, 1915 - 1968)

Genius is only the power of making continuous efforts. The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it: so fine that we are often on the line and do not know it. How many people have thrown up their hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience, would have achieved success. As the tide goes clear out, so it comes clear in. In business, sometimes, prospects may seem darkest when really they are on the turn, A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn no glorious success. There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no really insurmountable barrier save our own inherent weakness of purpose.

(Elbert Hubbard, 1856 - 1915)

Dalio Principle of the Day - Life Principle 5.5

Unfortunately, many tests by psychologists show that the majority of people mostly follow the lower level path, leading to inferior decisions w/out them realizing. As Carl Jung put it, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and your life will call it fate."

Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being pf a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way.

(Martin Luther King, Jr.  1929 - 1968)
