Last month, as part of our fun "Friday Five" series, we shared five inspirational quotes from successful women. Far be it from us, however, to exclude the men! Today, we're sharing five quotes from men who've rocked the business world. Hope you find them as motivating and thought-provoking as we do!
"The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency." - Bill Gates
"It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. It doesn’t matter how many times you almost get it right. No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you. All you have to do is learn from them and those around you because...all that matters in business is that you get it right once. Then everyone can tell you how lucky you are." - Mark Cuban
"I have found no greater satisfaction than achieving success through honest dealing and strict adherence to the view that, for you to gain, those you deal with should gain as well." - Alan Greenspan
"In the business world, everyone is paid in two coins: cash and experience. Take the experience first; the cash will come later." - Harold Geneen
"Let’s be honest. There’s not a business anywhere that is without problems. Business is complicated and imperfect. Every business everywhere is staffed with imperfect human beings and exists by providing a product or service to other imperfect human beings." - Bob Parsons
Have a great weekend, everyone!
