How Do I Get Experience?

Dec 31, 2013 - 10 comments






There is a story of a new bank president meeting with the old retiring bank president. The new guy asks the older guy, "What's been the key to your success?" The older guy says, "I can sum it up in two words"..."GOOD DECISIONS." The young banker says, "I thank you for the advice sir but how am I supposed to know how to make good decisions?" The older banker says, "One word young man...EXPERIENCE." Then the young banker replies, "That's all well and good but how do I get experience?" The older banker says, "Two words...BAD DECISIONS."
