There’s a lot to learn from John D. #Rockefeller. The guy knew what he wanted even if he didn’t initially understand how he’d get it. He wasn’t the first in the #oilbusiness, but he saw that the #money and control was in refining the #product, not in drilling for it.
I respect how he didn’t depend on others. He didn’t chase down mentors and he never undersold himself. He saw his #value to his #company, to any company he worked for, and he got what he thought he was worth, maybe not in the beginning, but eventually.
He was #disciplined, both with his time and his money. He was ambitious, but giving and caring and unlike so many #ambitious young men, he didn’t get trapped by the things that money could by, but the things that you could do with it.
