Solutions

There is always a solution. Sometimes they are easy to find. Other times they are hard to find.

If you find a solution, good for you.

If you can’t find the solution…make the solution!

Have a great day!

Ignored

Being yelled at can be painful.

Being ignored can be 10 times worse.

Have a great day!

Trepidation

One of the best ways to fail is to start with a great deal of trepidation.

If you begin with a lot of self doubt, you will most likely do things halfheartedly at best and that is a true recipe for disaster.

When you decided to do something, go all in. You can change your mind later but to give yourself the best chance of succeeding, go full speed ahead.

Have a great day!

Purpose

Without a purpose, what are we?

Have a great day!

Action steps

How often do you leave a meeting and wonder what, if anything, has been accomplished?

How often do you ask yourself if you just wasted a lot of time at the meeting?

Whenever possible, make sure there are action steps planned for the end of each meeting so people know what to do next.

If there are no action plans for the end of the meeting, is it any wonder people aren’t sure if anything was accomplished?

Have a great day!

One new idea

It’s amazing how easy stagnation can be.

Doing nothing is really quite easy.

The way to overcome this is with one new idea. The thing you will find is with one new idea….a second one is sure to follow. Then the third and fourth come quickly behind them.

It all starts with one new idea…do you have one?

Have a great day!

Space

When you see an empty building do you see wasted space or do you see great opportunity?

The answer probably says a great deal about us.

Have a great day!

Your Edge

Do you know what your edge is over others? Is it a technology edge? An experience edge? A personnel edge?

If you know your edge, figure out how to take advantage of it.

If you don’t know your edge, take the time to figure it out.

If you don’t have an edge, either find one or find something else to do

Have a great day!

Terminology

Recently I have been a bit frustrated because I recommended a software program to a client and they haven’t started using the software even though there is minimal cost, it would help them get more productive and is easy to use.

Yesterday I found out why they haven’t started using the program. While I had explained why I thought it would help them, I didn’t make sure they understood what exactly it does. I had made the assumption that they would know the acronym, know what it does and know how it works. This was stupid on my part.

It’s important to use as few acronym’s as possible, cut out the jargon, use standard terms that everyone would be familiar with and to make sure they understand what you are meaning.

It’s easy to assume someone else is foolish for not understanding things that you understand but it’s the exact opposite. We are foolish for not making sure everyone understands. It’s OUR responsibility to make sure someone else understands us.

Have a great day!

Opportunities

What if you spent most of your day looking for opportunities?

How many opportunities do you think you could find?

How many positives do you think you would come up with?

The big question is…why aren’t you doing this?

Have a great day!
