How to win Friends and Influence People

on the floor and walked away. When the night shift came in, they saw the "6" and asked what it meant. "The big boss was in here today," the day men said. "He asked us how many heats we made, and he chalked it down on the floor." The next morning Schwab walked through the mill again. The night shift had rubbed out "6" and replaced it with a big "7."
When the day shift reported for work, they saw a big "7" on the floor. So the night shift thought they were better than the day shift, did they? Well, they would show the night shift a thing or two. They pitched in with enthusiasm and when they quit that night, they left behind them a swaggering "io." Shortly this mill, that had been lagging way behind in production, was turning out more work than any other mill.
"The way to get things done," says Schwab, "is to stimulate competition, the desire to excel."

Don't Argue
AT A BANQUET one night the man next to me told a story in which he used the quotation, "There's a divinity that shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will," and attributed it to the Bible. To display my superiority, I corrected him. He stuck to his guns. From Shakespeare? Absurd! An old friend of mine, seated at my left, was a Shakespearean scholar. The story-teller and I agreed to submit the question to him. My friend listened, kicked me under the table and said: "Dale, the gentleman is right. It is from the Bible."
On our way home that night, my friend explained: "Of course that quotation is from Shakespeare, Dale; but he didn't ask for' your opinion. Why argue with him? Always avoid the acute angle."
"Always avoid the acute angle." I sorely needed that lesson because I had been an inveterate arguer. I have come to the conclusion that there is only one way to get the best of an argument-and that is to avoid it. Nine times out of ten, an argument ends with each of the contestants being more firmly convinced than ever that he is absolutely right. You can't win an argument. You can't win
