A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on ability, achievement, business, courage, elections, government, justice, life, past, performance, reward, sales, science, and worth

A message sent to all members of the American Sales Organization at the opening of the IBM Election Prize Contest, September 1, 1932. In every walk of life, the highest places and the greatest rewards go to those who have the courage to attempt and ability to achieve big things. That is true in science. It is true in government. It is true in business. And it is true in this organization. IBM leaders in the past have proved their worth by performance, just as they will in this sales campaign.

Thomas Watson (1874 - 1956)
