The 10 commandments

Loading my CorelDRAW creation ..

  • Start each working day with the idea that it may be the last.
  • Ignore all orders that are aimed at destroying your dream.
  • Do whatever it takes to realize your project, despite of your job description.
  • Find people that can help you.
  • Follow your intuition when you select people. Don’t go for second best.
  • Keep a low profile – publicity triggers a company’s immune mechanism.
  • Do not bet on a race if you do not run in it yourself.
  • It is easier to ask forgiveness than approval.
  • Be loyal to your targets but stay realistic on how you may reach them.
  • Honor your sponsors, but don’t let them run you over.

Translated from Jan van Bilzem’s presentation at the BP2000 kickoff.
