You need to decide what problems, what opportunities, what projects you’re going to work on.
You can’t work on 15 problems at the same time.
We’ve got a low turnover management group and executive group who’ve grown up in the business.
There were around 1,000 stores when I was made president.
People who are employed in a way they don’t like – my heart cries for them.
If I had been a bricklayer I’d still have been a journeyman.
I get a bit of a kick out of exporting private enterprise and incentives.
I think the ability to focus is a thread that runs through so-called successful people. And that’s something that can be developed. It can be self-taught.
Work hard, use your common sense and don’t be afraid to trust your instincts.
