Lord Baden-Powell on Efficiency

      No Comments on Lord Baden-Powell on Efficiency

180. By “efficiency” I don’t mean more money-making skill, but a general intelligence and capability to live a free, prosperous and happy life.

181. Make yourself efficient so that you can depend on yourself; plan out your own way of making your career or of doing any job that comes to you. Don’t bother getting other people’s help – do it yourself.  Don’t worry about getting praise for what you do; if you are doing the right thing, you will get plenty of satisfaction out of it – it will bring its own reward.  All you have to worry about is to do your best and do your duty.
