Rules to Work By

Today’s tip comes from Joe Di Stanislao, SCORE Orange County Management Counselor

He includes these “management philosophies to ponder’ in the handouts for his marketing workshops.

  1. Effort means nothing…without results.
  2. It is not how much you do, but what you do and how you do it.
  3. Accuracy first. Then momentum.
  4. Become market driven rather than product driven (e.g. the Edsel)
  5. There’s no point doing well that which you should not be doing in the first place.
  6. The objective is to influence, not to impress.
  7. Become alert to the difference between effectiveness vs. efficiency.
  8. An accurate plan, regardless of how poorly it may be executed, is more effective than a vague plan that is carried out with brilliant precision.
