Quote from 7 habits

Unless we are willing to achieve real independence, it's foolish to develop human relations skills. We might try. We might even have some degree of success when the sun is shining. But when the difficult times come-- and they will--we won't have the foundation to keep things together.

How true!

Quote of the day

We must not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time. --T. S. Eliot

Unique, different, exceptional business

An interesting article in Talkingstory:
"Trying to beat out the competition at its own game is neither inspirational nor particularly rewarding. Did you really go into business just to beat out somebody else at what they're already doing? Or did you go into business to do something different, something unique, something exceptional?

This is quite a fresh view on the traditional business concepts. We would create a truely wonderful world if everyone try to provide a unique, different, exceptional type of service to the others.
