10 Life & Business Lessons from Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson

  1. Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
  2. He who knows best knows how little he knows.
  3. Delay is preferable to error.
  4. Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
  5. Never spend your money before you have earned it.
  6. It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good.
  7. I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
  8. Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
  9. Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
  10. Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.
