  1. The Entrepreneurs' Survival Guide 15 Lessons I Learned from My Dad on How to Worry Less, Create Success and Have More Fun in the Process By Pam Hendrickson www.PamHendrickson.com
  2. -, t it! i!- SJ- ffi.' I the* The following were written in November 1997 by my dad, William Bigler, who was a highly successful process engineer and project manager for Corning, Inc. for over 40 years. These principles are a compilation of the most important lessons he learned about product manufacturing, project management —and life. He shared them with me, and now I'm sharing them with you. www.PamHendrickson.com
  3. Balance You have to balance job, family and health. If you ignore any one of them too long, you will pay a high price at the expense of the others.
  4. Change Embrace change. Stagnation is the enemy. The minute you stop changing and growing, you start dying. !
  5. Communication You have to communicate well: up, down, sideways. People have a preferred method of taking in information—email, voicemail, face-to-face. Find out what each person likes and use it.
  6. Decisions Reserve the right to make the decisions, but get all the input you can first. 
 Be an informed dictator.
  7. Details You have to be involved in the details. You can’t do projects successfully without it.
  8. Time Management Computers can enhance communications—and they can also be the greatest killer of efficiency yet devised.
  9. Humor When we lose our humor, we’ve lost. Levity lightens the load.
  10. Ideas They’re everywhere. Ask everyone you meet. You would be surprised how many really good ideas come from unusual sources.
  11. Quality Why is there never time to do it right, but always time to do it over?
  12. Objectives Yours and your customers' must match.
  13. Organizational Balance Every organization, no matter how big or small, has strengths and weaknesses. Surround yourself with people with opposite strengths and weaknesses from yours.
  14. Perception Perceptions are reality to the perceiver. It doesn’t matter a bit what the real truth is.
  15. Forgiveness Don’t beat people up. They already know they made a mistake—even before you did! They already feel terrible about it. Help them.
  16. Trust Never go back on your word. If something changes, be honest. Once you lose your reputation, you’ll never get it back.
  17. Self Discipline Napoleon Hill called it the master key to riches. He was right. Without it, success is impossible. Do whatever you have to do to develop it.
