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.
成功的首要条件和最大秘诀就是:把你的精力,思想和资本全都集中在你正从事的事业上。一旦开始从事某种职业,就要下定决心在那一领域闯出一片天地来;做这一行的领导人物,采纳每一点改进之心,采用最优良的设备,对专业知识熟稔于心。 一些公司的失败就在于他们分散了资金,因为这就意味着分散了他们的精力。他们向这方面投资,又向那方面投资;在这里投资,在那里投资,到处都投资。“不要把所有的鸡蛋放在一个篮子里”的说法大错特错。我要对你说:“把所有的鸡蛋都放在一个篮子里,然后小心地看好那个篮子。”看看你周围,你会注意到:这么做的人其实很少失败。看管和携带一个篮子并不太难。
