Last week, I had the privilege of being honored by Long Island Business News as one of Long Island's Fifty Around 50, described as LIBN's "annual tip of the hat to 50, or so, Long Island companies and business leaders who have chalked up five decades, or so, of success." Rather than print the same old info that they know can be found on websites, the editors asked us to answer a series of questions, modeled loosely on the Proust Questionnaire, to reveal our perspectives on our 50 years of living. A few of my favorites:
What’s the best lesson you learned in business? Make sure your clients have realistic expectations. If they think they’re getting the sun and moon, you have to get them back to Earth.
What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? Being in a situation where a client needs help but there is no way to help them.
What is your motto? Never attribute to malice anything that can be explained by stupidity.
