You can buy a man’s time,
You can buy a man’s physical presence at a given place;
You can even buy a measured number of skilled muscular motions per hour or day.
But you cannot buy enthusiasm; You cannot buy initiative;
You cannot buy loyalty; You cannot buy the devotion of hearts, minds and souls.
You have to earn these things.
Clarence Francis (Chairman of General Mills)
With Consultants in mind, I would add:
Want discretion? Be discreet.
Want generosity? Be generous.
Want new ideas? Have an open mind.
You get what you sow.
