Don't make friends who are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.


Thomas J. Watson

Thomas John Watson, Sr. (February 17, 1874 - June 19, 1956) was the American president of International Business Machines (IBM), who oversaw that company's growth into an international force from the 1920s to the 1950s. Watson developed IBM's effective management style and turned it into one of the most effective selling organizations yet seen, based largely around punched card tabulating machines. A leading self-made industrialist, he was one of the richest men of his time and was called the world's greatest salesman when he died in 1956

    ಜೊತೆಯಾಗಿರಲು ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರನ್ನು ಮಾಡಬೇಡಿ. ನಿಮ್ಮನ್ನು ಸನ್ನೆ ಮಾಡಲು ಒತ್ತಾಯಿಸುವ ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರನ್ನು ಮಾಡಿ.

    함께있는 것이 편한 친구를 사귀지 마십시오. 당신이 힘을 발휘하도록 강요 할 친구를 사귀십시오.

    வசதியாக இருக்கும் நண்பர்களை உருவாக்க வேண்டாம். உங்களைத் தூண்டுவதற்கு உங்களை கட்டாயப்படுத்தும் நண்பர்களை உருவாக்குங்கள்.

    సౌకర్యవంతంగా ఉండే స్నేహితులను చేయవద్దు. మిమ్మల్ని మీరు బలవంతం చేసే స్నేహితులను చేసుకోండి.
