5 principles that hold true today

Business trends come and go, but some principles remain true over time, Jeff Haden writes.

  1. Knowledge is power. “Smart people win a lot. Smarter people win even more often.”
  2. Give before you receive. You will get more if you give first.
  3. Have an idea of what’s next. Always have a plan for what you will do next.
  4. Admit when you’re wrong. Make apologies as needed and commit to getting it right the next time.
  5. Lighten up. Everyone needs time to rest, relax and regroup, so don’t forget to take it.
