Effective Rule #19 – Do the right thing, and do it right


  • Doing the right thing is being effective
  • Doing things with minimal energy is being efficient
  • Being effective is better than being efficient, as doing the right thing slowly is always better than doing the wrong thing quickly

Rules of Thumb

  • Have a great product or service, as a slightly better product is not good enough
  • Follow through with excellence

“Just that you do the right thing. The rest doesn’t matter.”

Marcus Aurelius
