Pooh's Top 5 for Business

A.A. Milne was a brilliant philosopher and writer. Here is his wisdom applied to business (some of which comes from Winnie the Pooh).

In my opinion, this is Pooh's top five.

Communication: “You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

Difficult People: “Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them.”

Food: “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like 'What about


Productivity: “People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”

Organization: “Organization is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it’s not all mixed up.”

Some of the greatest wisdom comes from children's books. Sometimes Pooh says it best.
