The Ten Demandments

2 min read

Back in the early days of the Industrial Revolution, a London factory manager compiles a list of suggestions, ten epigrammatic bits of advice that he passed along to his employees.

Here are his “Ten Demandments”

  1. Don’t Lie. It wastes my time and yours. I am sure to catch you in the act in the end, and that is the wrong end.
  2. Watch your work, not the clock. A long day’s work makes a long day short; and a short day’s work makes my face long.
  3. Give more than I expect and I will give you more than you expect. I can afford to increase your pay if you increase my profits.
  4. You owe so much to yourself that you cannot afford to owe anybody else. Keep out of debt or keep out of my shops.
  5. Dishonesty is never an accident. Good men, like good women, never see temptation when they meet it.
  6. Mind you own business, and in time you’ll have a business of your own to mind.
  7. Don’t do anything here which hurts your self-prespect. An employee who is willing to steal for me is willing to steal from me.
  8. It is none of my business what you do at night. But if dissipation affects what you do the next day, and you do half as much as I demand you’ll last half as long as you hoped.
  9. Don’t tell me what I’d like to hear but what I ought to hear. I don’t want a valet to my vanity, but one for my money.
  10. Don’t kick if I kick. If you’re worth correcting, you’re worth keeping. I don’t waste time cutting specks out of rotten apples.
