I Ml K i fo V i& 'f- THOUGHTS ON BUSINESS BY A "WALDO PONDRXY .WARREN ALL WORK A SCHOOL THE man who gets the most out of life Is the man who lives to learn. An old man, walKlng by the banks of a river, said to his grandson: "See this river, my child. It has a different Interest for every one of us. That man yon der thinks of It merely as a place to fish. The boys down there think of It as a swimming pool. The man who owns the sawmill considers It a part of his workshop. Those young people In the launch think of It as a pleasure stream. The farmer finds that It enriches his fields. The cows come down to drink. The old settlers tell us of a battle that was fought near the bend. And you and I find It a many-sided object lesson. For you are soon to gd out Into the world, and you will find life like this river. You will observe that every man thinks of it from his own standpoint..

H -ti R' rv ? MA - ftia- iW-f' &, ft ' IK 1. - H THOUGHTS ON BUSINESS BY WALDO PONDRAY WARREN WHY MISTAKES ARE MADE MISTAKES do not "happen" they are the results of causes. A vast measure of time, money, and oppor tunity Is lost In making mistakes and trying to rectify them. To correct mistakes Is a good work, but to prevent them Is a. far higher achievement. The "ounce of prevention" may bo applied by carefully considering some of the chief causes of errors In business. They are: Carelessness, Inattention and superficial Interest; Laziness not being willing to take the trouble; Accepting appearances as facts without investigation; Proceeding without discussion or advice; Impulsive decisions not well thought out; Lack of foresight and preparation; Wrong theories and biased advice; False economy and desire for gain; Lack of tact and thoughtfulness; Forgetting and neglect of duty; Depending on those not properly Instructed; Failure to take due precautions; Failure to safeguard wea...

mm l THOUGHTS ON BUSINESS BY WALDO PONDRAY WARREN RUNNING DOWN AN ERROR IN talking with a successful business manager noMong ago the subject of correcting errors came up. I asked him: "How do you treat an employe when you find thnt he has made a mistake?" "It depends on the employe," he said, "and on the nature of the mistake. I havegreat deal moro leniency for a mis take due to Ignorance than for one due to carelessness. But I do pot believe In abusing an employe for a mistake. I tako the attitude that It Is a serious thing, and that doubtless he feels badly about It. I don't try to smooth it over, but let his own self-convlctlon be his punlsh'ment." "And what about correcting It?" "Usually I require him to look into the matter and report to me, and show me Just exactly how the mistake happened. He usually knows that point better than anyone else can tell him. t question him quietly until he admits that it was just because he let It go, or because he assumed some point with out Inv...
