What's My Philosophy?
If you want to experience lasting success in life and business, a personal philosophy is essential. More than an action statement, your philosophy expresses the values that drive your actions. Author and entrepreneur Charles King eloquently illustrates this in his contemporary business parable, What’s My Philosophy?, which tells the fictional story of thirty-five-year-old CEO Jim Lincoln.
Jim’s well-known California pet supply company hasn’t weathered the recent economic recession well. Given an ultimatum by board president Allen Kline, Jim must turn the company around in three months—or be forced out. Knowing he won’t get any support from Allen, Jim hopes that he and his brilliant executive assistant, Donna Randle, can figure out how to right the ship before it’s too late.
When things seem bleakest, Jim meets George Waddles, a wise, mysterious stranger who offers to help him with his company’s issues. Together they explore what it means to have a philosophy, and Jim learns how knowing his foundational values fuels his ability to overcome the challenges he faces at work and home.
Be inspired to craft your own philosophy…and experience the dividends in the years to come.
