All you need is one percent more to have final say

Be organized enough to know this and deliver on it.

Is there any currency more valuable than time?

All those books that use short cuts and secrets to lure you into buying them.

How have they served you?

The long way is the short cut.

Since retiring from Disney, my “get to do” versus “have to do” percentage¬†has moved from:

51/49 to 95/5


If you ever have a business partner, never go 50/50.

When you disagree, there’s no tie-breaker, there’s stale mate.

But all you need to have controlling interest, and critical decision making authority, is 51%.

Same in life.
