A financial wizard was giving his young son his first lesson on life in the world of big business. “There are two things that are absolutely essential, if you want to succeed in business,” he said, “integrity and sagacity.”You can find the sermon here and the podcast here.
“What’s integrity, dad?” asked the youngster.
“Integrity means no matter what, always keep your word.”
“And what’s sagacity?” asked the boy.
“Ah,” smiled the tycoon. “Sagacity means no matter what, never ever give your word!”
