Ethics and Civics are extinct materials in schools. It gives very little value on honesty, punctuality and cleanliness, and this education is the essential foundation for creating successful entrepreneurs. My Japanese friend told me of the four steps needed to be a successful entrepreneur: The Well Being: Honest, punctual and disciplined. For example, consider a enterprise of 400 employees. If each of these employees distracted 30 minutes of your time in activities outside their work, they are losing 12.000 minutes per day, 60,000 minutes per week, 240,000 minutes per month, equivalent to 4,000 hours of actual work.
The fundamental principle is respect. If not yours, you must be somebody. If you found this pen on a desk, must be someone, then return it. If you find a wallet, not yours, should be someone and if you're in a meeting with a lady, not yours, must be someone. If you're getting paid for working eight hours, this time is not yours, it's from someone who paid for them.
And if everyone would respect these concepts, the better. The Japanese businessman, told me that in his business, no drawer is locked, everything is on hand to everyone, but everyone knows what and who are becoming one of the things that are used in the office. How do we live in our countries?, Seeking to put keys to the drawer where we keep the keys. He told me how to recruit your people when you started your business. It gave him a $ 100 bill to a young man to buy her newspaper, she had to return $ 99, and many never returned, however, that they did, entering his company because he saw the future in them.
