I did not get a chance to watch it until this weekend. I absolutely loved it. The entrepreneur in me made note of the following business lessons I gleaned from the movie:

1. Regret is unprofessional

The Character “M” played by actress Judi Dench was asked to show remorse toward a business decision she made which adversely impacted a former subordinate and sworn enemy. M replied, “regret is unprofessional”.

It’s a line that begs reflection. In my opinion, it is the truth. According to the Webster dictionary, to regret is to mourn the loss of; be very sorry for mistakes; or to miss very much. These are time wasters. M pointed out that as professionals, if we are professional, we make the best decisions and calls we know how at the time. That’s not to state that we should not learn from our mistakes. We learn and move on! To baste in regret is to be stuck and in business, there is no time for that.

2. Beware of Information Technology

IT is wonderful in that it can save time and money. But, it can also be very, very dangerous.
