Business Lesson 80

Hello readers and welcome back to another essay on business.  Todays  Essay is going to be from the book How to Win Friends & Influence People.

“What would be the most difficult technique in this book so far for you to learn how to do well? Why?”

The hardest one in part three would be “Let the other person feel that the idea is his or hers.”   Out of the eleven other techniques to make friends, this would be the hardest.  If I had the idea, then it is my idea not the other persons.  Why should I try to make someone think that the idea was theirs when it is not or was not.

The second hardest one to me would be “Show respect to other person’s opinions. Never say “You’re Wrong”.”  Why would I put this principle in here?  That is because if you make me mad, then I will say you are wrong.  Just don’t make me mad or you will pay for it.

The easiest out of the twelve would be “Throw Down a Challenge.”  I will give you a challenge.  That challenge is to write 500 words:

“What would be the most difficult technique in this book so far for you to learn how to do well? Why?” On the book How to Win Friends & Influence People.

In the Book How to Win Friends & Influence People.  There is a story on challenges.  The story is that the manager tried everything to get the people that work at the factory to work harder.  The company was lagging behind in production.  The boss to some chalk and asked one of the men “How many heats did your shift make today?”  The man answered “6.”  So the boss wrote a big number 6 on the floor, and walked away.  The night shift came and asked what the number six was for.  The man replied that was the number of heats the produced.  Then the competition came.  When the day group came back they saw a number seven on the floor where the number six used to be.  Did the night group think they were the better out of the two groups?  The day group went to work and left behind a large number 10.

If you yell, swear, cusse, or threaten to do something to someone, they are not going to do anything.  But if you introduce competition, then the groups are going to compete with each other to see who is better.
