Kazuo Inamori Management Philosophy No. 3: Make Decisions with an Altruistic Mind
"Our mind seems to have two sides. One side appears to be concerned only with our own interests, while the other side is altruistic and will sacrifice to help others. When decisions are made with the selfish mind, nobody wants to help us, because these decisions have a self-centered, narrow perspective and are prone to mistakes.
By contrast, when our altruistic mind makes a decision, everyone around us wants to help because the decision is benevolent, comprehensive and correct.
In order to do good work, we need to make decisions based on the part of our heart that cares for others, not based on our own selfish interests."
