Some people are way too busy talking to learn...

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

I bet you've noticed some people simply must express their views. If someone interrupts them, sooner or later, one way or another, these people will keep returning to what they were saying until they have finished saying it. And, if they don't think you are listening then they will repeat their message until they believe you have listened

And, these people are quick to interrupt others and squeeze others out of conversations so they can inject their views.

Listening isn't important to these people: they don't feel a need to listen because their minds are made up. 

These people are way too busy talking to learn.

People want hope; people follow dreams.

STRENGTHS: People-Focused for Success | Thought Tweets

It seems you can build a business on very complex things and on very simple things, but not in-between.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Simple things, especially those that touch the emotions, form the foundation of many successful businesses - from your favourite local diner and your favourite hair stylist to pet rocks and dog groomers. 

Complex things amaze us, especially those of us who are early adopters. Say no more than 'new Apple product'. Or, consider the impact new special effects have on the movies and the entertainment sector.

Einstein: Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

You probably think about what your customers want.

You probably measure what you think your customers want.
