81 The Road to Success 成功之路

And here is the prime condition of success, the 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.
获得成功的首要条件和重要秘诀是:把精力。思想和财力完全集中于所干的事业上。一旦开始干某一行,就要有决心干出个成就来,要出类拔萃,要不断地改进,要采用最好的机器,最后做到彻底地通晓这一行。

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 “put all your eggs in one basket, and then watch that basket.” Look round you and take notice, men who do that do 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.
失败的企业就是那些把资金分散,因而意味着分散了企业精力的企业。即他们在这儿投资一些,在那儿投资一些,又想在其他方面等涉及的方方面面都投资。“不要孤注一掷(不要把所有的钱都投入一项生意上)”之说大错特错。我告诉你们,“把所有的钱都投入一项生意上;然后全力以赴。”时刻注意情况变化,能这样做的人往往不会失败。能关注并处理好一项事业很容易。但要在这个国家。试图在多方面的事业投资,结果就会一事无成。就比如拿着三只篮子的人,他就得把一只篮子顶在头上,但这样很容易摔倒。美国企业家所犯的一个宝昔吴就是缺乏资金集中。

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 yourself.总而育之:要志在顶峰:决不涉足酒吧,要滴酒不沾,或者仅在用餐时喝点酒;决不投机取巧:决不在资金不足时进行投资;视公司利益为自己的利益:违约永远在于挽救业主;集中精力,孤注一掷,全力以赴;决不支出大于收入;最后,决不失去耐心,因为正如爱默生所说:“除了你自己,没有人能欺骗你远离最终的成功。”
