The secrets to success in business aren't secrets at all. They're obvious, so obvious that they've mostly been taken for granted or ignored-until now. We've all read the business allegories, the "how I did it" success stories, and yes, there's good advice to be found in their pages. But nowhere is the advice as pure, as simple, as elegant, as it is in The Obvious. Former CEO James Dale has compiled ingenious words to live by, lucid truths as likely to be found in a fortune cookie as an MBA textbook. And the beauty of it is, regardless of the job-from sales rep to department head to CEO-the same principles yield the same results, and they're always effective. While all of Dale's advice is, well, obvious, it's implementation isn't. In The Obvious, Dale shares ways in which any businessperson can carry out these simple lessons and achieve success. -Show up.-Don't be a jerk.-Simple is better than complicated.-Tell the truth. (It's so rarely used, it's like a secret weapon.)-Bosses are not all idiots.-Don't look backward. There's nothing there.-Forgive and forget (or at least one out of two).-Trust someone besides yourself.-Start over tomorrow, but don't do it the same way. Entertaining, compelling, and commonsensical, The Obvious is all you need to know. Period.
