Example text

This I could do. I went to the university's copy center, paper in hand, on the day it was due. Right off, I saw something far more interesting: the copy center itself. This was the spring of 1970 and people were scurrying around making voluminous copies of legal paperwork for the trial of accused serial kil er Charles Manson. I came running back to class, nearly out of breath. I had to talk to Danny. I was late with the paper and Danny was pretty angry that I'd jeopardized his grade. It didn't take me long to conclude that I was basical y unemployable.

They went together. It made sense to me as a kid and it stil does. Unfortunately, though, there didn't seem to be a place for me in the workplace when I was young. One time when I was in high school, I was working at my father's clothing factory, as I did most afternoons. For the longest time my job had been buttoning up the dresses after they were steamed, but I real y wanted to start assembling orders for customers, a job overseen by my Uncle Vic's wife, my Aunt Claudia. It paid more and the work was more interesting.

But he didn't know how to fix it. Though he was a tremendous success in the clothing industry and received awards for his work, by the end of his life, he found he'd gotten too bogged down with details. " "Drive thy business," as Benjamin Franklin once said. " Being "on" your business and your life means having enough detachment every day that you are constantly reassessing your direction, thinking creatively about your overal strategy, and scrutinizing your competitors' tactics. It means relying on others to attend to most of the details of the day-to-day operations and employing a system of checks to verify that you are on the right track.
