Mahatma Gandhi & Business

Mahatma GandhiToday is the birth date of Mahatma Gandhi. Take a moment, look away from the computer screen, breathe freely, relax. Life is a continuum, even deadlines pass, there are more important things than the press release on the new Jell-O flavor.

Even as we conduct business in the course of the day, we can behave in a way that is at peace with our surroundings, even if those around us are not at peace.
Mahatma Gandhi, Born – October 2, 1869 Porbandar, India / Died January 30, 1948. A few quotes to cogitate on:

“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.”

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

“Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it. But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of the truth.”

    Gandhi is a maxim master. “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” If I wanted to learn PR in a masters program, what school would you recommend to someone with strong GRE scores and an undergrad GPA of 3.9?
