“Ignore the conventional wisdom.
If everybody else is doing it one way, there's a good chance you can find your niche by going in exactly the opposite direction."
Walton was a lifelong learner who applied everything he learned to his advantage. He was also an experimenter unafraid to try new ideas and discard them if they didn’t work. Ultimately, he had a single driving goal for all his stores: to make every single customer as happy as possible.
“High expectations are the key to everything.”
"Keep everybody guessing as to what your next trick is going to be. Don’t become too predictable."

“We take the best ideas from someone else."
"Celebrate your success and find humor in your failures."
“There are only four things in life that matter.
The first is happiness and I’ll sell you the other three for a dollar."
