The Wisdom of Will Rogers

Posted by Tom Locke on March 27th, 2014 filed in Business, Education, History, Humour, Life

Will Rogers was one of America’s greatest political sages.  Despite passing away in a 1935 plane crash in Alaska with bush pilot Wiley Post, his country/cowboy wisdom has passed the test of time.

If he were alive today, it would not be a stretch to hear him pass on the following advice to the business community:

  1. Never miss a  good chance to shut up.
  2. If you find  yourself in a hole, stop digging.
  3. The quickest  way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your  pocket.
  4. Good judgment  comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad  judgment.
  5. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring.  He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.  The moral: When you’re full of bull, keep your mouth shut.
