3. Don't Let Fear Of Failure Hold You Back:
Failure is an opportunity to learn. It takes bad times (failure) to appreciate 'good times' because no mistake - no correction.
4. Make Timely Decisions:
Use your intuition. Planning and thought are good. But procrastination leads to missed opportunity.
5. The Major Company Asset Is You:
Take care of yourself. Your health is more valuable than the most expensive machinery or computer software for the company. Maintain your health for balance and energy.
6. Keep Your Ego Under Control:
Don't take profits and spend them on expensive toys to impress others. Build a war chest for unexpected needs or opportunities.
You need to believe in yourself, in your company and that you will be successful. What you don't believe you can't achieve.
8. Encourage & Accept Criticism Graciously, Admit Your Mistakes:
You need to constantly work on convincing your employees that it's okay, even necessary to state their honest opinions even if it conflicts with the boss's opinion. Your employees will follow your lead.
9. Rebound Quickly From Setbacks:
There surely will be plenty of ups and downs as you build the business. Learn from the setbacks and move on. You can't change the past.
10. Periodically Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone To Pursue Something Important:
Many times you will feel uncomfortable in implementing a needed change in technology, people, mission, competing, etc. For the company and you to grow personally, you sometimes have to step out of your comfort zone.
