Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote one of the great works of business when he penned his famous Law of Compensation.
I encourage everyone, from grizzled business veterans to first time sales people to read the pearls of wisdom in Emerson’s words.
I love his essay so much, I tweeted out the whole thing! Here’s a sample tweet:
The longer the payment is withholden, the better for you; for compound interest on compound interest is the rate and usage of this exchequer. The history of persecution is a history of endeavours to cheat nature, to make water run up hill, to twist a rope of sand.
I encourage you to look up @EmersonsLaw on Twitter, see if you can find something that moves you.
