Twelve Things to Remember

Marshall Field (1834-1906) was an American entrepreneur and wildly successful retailer.  

As a member of the Jekyll Island (GA) Club, he rubbed elbows with the Morgans, Rockefellers and Vanderbilts.  His “Twelve Things to Remember” was frequently circulated among the staff of his department store and, later, among the general public:


The value of time

The success of perseverance

The pleasure of working

The dignity of simplicity

The worth of character

The power of kindness

The influence of example

The obligation of duty

The wisdom of economy

The virtue of patience

The improvement of talent

The joy of originating.
