Three Thoughts from Henry Ford


“Concretely, what I most realized about business in that year (1908) – and I have been leaning more each year without finding it necessary to change my first conclusions – is this:

(1) That finance is given a place ahead of work and therefore tends to kill the work and destroy the fundamental of service.

(2) That thinking first of money instead of work brings on fear of failure and this fear blocks every avenue of business – it makes a man afraid of competition, of changing his methods, or of doing anything which might change his condition.

(3) That the way is clear for anyone who thinks first of service – of doing the work in the best possible way.“

Henry Ford
