Business | Labor | Promise | Wisdom

Sam Findley decided it was time to retire from the garment business. So he called in his son Mervyn and gave him the news and a bit of advice: “Son, it’s all yours. I’ve made a success of this business because of two principles — reliability and wisdom. First, take reliability. If you promise goods by the 10th of the month, no matter what happens, you must deliver by the 10th. Even if it costs you overtime, double time, golden time. You deliver what you promise.” Mervyn thought about this for a few moments and then asked, “but what about wisdom?” His father shot back: “Wisdom is never making such a stupid promise.” Adapted from Funny, Funny World
