Reflections:Do you know the 90/10 principle?


What is this principle? 10% of life is made up of what happens to us and 90% of life is decided by how we react. What does this mean? We really have no control over 10% of what happens to us.

A good executive will listen to others. A good assistant often knows more about his boss’ business than he does— and he should! The boss shouldn’t have to be involved with every little thing, but someone needs to be.
