August Fifth Success Secret – Dr. Donald Laird

August 5, 2020 — Leave a comment

This is the age of applied science. On every hand there are mute but lasting witnesses of the wonderful strides the sciences have made to serve man in a useful way.

But have you ever paused to reflect that applied science and efficiency engineering are one-sided in their development? Man spends his energies in finding out how to get a ton of steel to go father, a typewriter to wear longer, an automobile to run cheaper, a light to shine brighter—but little of his time or thought to the development of his own efficiency.

The extreme development of natural material resources and their conservation is paralleled by a pitiable neglect of human resources.

~ Dr. Donald Laird, Increasing Personal Efficiency (1936)
