And ninety other ideas to build your business and career by Mark H. McCormack
By Fareeha Qayoom
like McCormack’s work. I read his “Success Secrets” years ago. It was a good read so when I saw his latest work called “Never Wrestle with a Pig,” on ‘Readings’ shelf. I bought it immediately.
Absorbing, interesting, funny, to the point as usual and full of useful insights, it’s a must-read. Some of the tips and advice mentioned by McCormack, I have learnt the hard way myself at work – for example, in a conflict between a boss and a subordinate, the management will always support the chain of command, hence, your boss, never you, even if you are right. That’s so true. I have seen it happen so many times in real life. Or never argue with your boss, you would always lose the argument or People who count on luck rarely get lucky. Or Work when you are at work. Finish your day on time. Or Start your day one hour early.
The best advice is “never wrestle with a pig, you get dirty and only the pig enjoys it.” Do read it. ■
