In June 1996, Rick Spence wrote a short column in PROFIT, The Magazine for Canadian Entrepreneurs. It featured 18 pearls of business wisdom on a backdrop of cartoon like characters acting out the advice (or not). The column is titled “Everything I need to know about business I learned from playing golf.” I clipped out that column and pinned it up in my office so that it was always in sight. My office has moved many times since 1996 but that clipping is still with me and rarely does a day go by when I don’t reflect on it.
What do you keep around your office and how is it helpful to you?
