It is well

that young men should begin at the beginning and occupy the most subordinate

positions. Many of the leading businessmen of Pittsburgh had a serious

responsibility thrust upon them at the very threshold of their career. They

were introduced to the broom,and spent the

first hours of their business lives sweeping out the office. I notice we have

janitors and janitresses now in offices,and our young

men unfortunately miss that salutary branch of business education. But if by

chance the professional sweeper is absent any morning,the boy who has the genius of the future partner in him

will not hesitate to try his hand at the broom. It does not hurt the newest

comer to sweep out the office if necessary. I was one of those sweepers myself.


Assuming that

you have all obtained employment and are fairly started, my advice to you is

“aim high”. I would not give a fig for the young man who does not already see

himself the partner or the head of an important firm. Do not rest content for a

moment in your thoughts as head clerk, or foreman, or general manager in any

concern, no matter how extensive. Say to yourself, “My place is at the top.” Be

king in your dreams.


And here is the

prime condition of success, the great secret: concentrate your energy, thought,

and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged. Having

begun in one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it, adopt

every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it.


The concerns

which fail are those which have scattered their capital, which means that they

have scattered their brains also. They have investments in this, or that, or

the other, here there, and everywhere. "Don't put all your eggs in one

basket." is all wrong. I tell you to "put all your eggs in one basket,

and then watch that basket." Look round you and take notice, men who do

that not often fail. It is easy to watch and carry the one basket. It is trying

to carry too many baskets that breaks most eggs in this country. He who carries

three baskets must put one on his head, which is apt to tumble and trip him up.

One fault of the American businessman is lack of concentration.


To summarize

what I have said: aim for the highest; never enter a bar room; do not touch

liquor, or if at all only at meals; never speculate; never indorse beyond your

surplus cash fund; make the firm's interest yours; break orders always to save

owners; concentrate; put all your eggs in one basket, and watch that basket;

expenditure always within revenue; lastly, be not impatient, for as Emerson

says,"no one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourselves."
