Business is Business and How to win the game

by S. Nagarajan

 

The nature of the world is to find fault with everybody. You have to bear these comments and you have to sail smooth against the rough waves.

Be it a manager, or a CEO, or a club president, nobody could satisfy all.

 

If he begins on time,                        He is a tyrant

If he waits for late-comers               He is too tolerant

If he requires constant attention       He is a despot

If he does not care                            He makes himself foolish

If he assumes the spokesman’ role   He becomes a bore

If he yields                                        He becomes unnecessary

If he calls for silence                         it is an abuse of power

If he permits disorder                        He falls in authority

If he is firm                                        He takes himself too seriously

If he is good-natured                          He does not maintain his rank

If he expounds his own ideas             People are perforce against him

If he asks for a choice                        He is irresolute

If he is dynamic                                 He is worked up

If he remains cautious                       He is inefficient

If he does everything on his own      He is conceited

If he delegates                                   He is lazy

If he is attentive to the ladies            He is obsequious

If he is not                                         He is a snob!!!

 

I.P.Guillon, Rotary Club of Marmande, France has written the above  under the caption The Club President  in French.. This has been translated in English by Wallace Flint, Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, U.S.A  The Rotary Club magazine ‘The Rotarian’ has published it in its July 1982 issue.

 

Well, let us formulate and plan our own good principles and action plan to achieve our goal.

 

What is business? There is an internet joke as to how one should win the game of business.

 

Father:  I want you to marry a girl of my choice

Son   : I will choose my own bride

Father: But the girl is Bill Gates’ daughter

Son    : Well in that case…. OK

 

Next father approaches Bill Gates.

 

Father: I have a husband for your daughter

Bill Gates : But my daughter is too young to marry!

Father: But this young man is a vice – president of World Bank

Bill Gates: Ah! In that  case… Ok

Finally father goes to see the president of the World Bank.

Father : I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president

President : But I already have more vice-presidents than I need!

Father : But this young man is Bill Gates’s son-in-law.

President : Ah! In that case… OK

This is how good business is done.

 

Manipulate intelligently supply and demand and win the game without harming anybody but to the satisfaction of all concerned.

Keep the secret in your heart and start playing.

 

GOOD LUCK!
