5 Tips From Robert Toll

December 14, 2006

Here’s a list from Robert Toll that my Boss dropped in my inbox. I though it was pretty good so I’d pass it on.

  1. A wise man knows what he doesn’t know. (Never assume knowledge.)
  2. We’re already born rich. The goal is to not die poor.
  3. It takes a long time to build a brand, but it doesn’t take long to destroy it. Always protect the brand.
  4. Respect the management; It’s what got you here.
  5. Remember: It’s only business. Wipe it off your shirt when you go home at night.

    The first reminds me of a saying something like “It is not what we don’t know that gets in trouble, it is what we think we know”.

    Very true. Don’t think these sayings are completely unique. But they are a good group. I didn’t even know who Toll was until I googled him and learned his company builds houses and that he’s a highly paid CEO. But, there is an earthiness to the five tips, kinda like “remember where you started”.
