Sales business commandments

A thousand employees of the Rogers Peet Company had a dinner to celebrate the fiftieth business birthday of Frank R. Chambers, chairman of the board of directors. Mr. Chambers gave twelve business commandments which had survived a test of half a century. Some of them were:

  • Do not have the idea that success means simply making money.
  • Always preserve your sense of humor.
  • Don’t be afraid of criticism.
  • Criticize yourself often.
  • Don’t be jealous of the other fellow’s success.
  • Don’t be misled by your dislikes.
  • Don’t like anything too well.
  • Don’t do the easiest thing simply because it is the easiest thing to do.
