If you want to win someone over then let him know that you know what he does when he is at work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Most people take at least some pride in their work...so they tell others about what they do when they are at work. 

Few people have the interest or take to time to truly listen to others, so they never really hear let alone remember what others tell them.

You can listen. You can remember. You can let others know you care about what they do at work.

You can inspire people!

 

 

Invest the time it takes to understand people. Understanding provides for trust, motivation, & leadership.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

In part, inspired by a re-reading of Michael Gerber's 'The E-Myth Revisited'. Pick a demographic - learn its psychographics - and don't forget, we're dealing with people...not statistics.

Of course, there's a softer side and a more-important justification. Only when we understand others are we able to help them. [Without such understanding we ramble along, at best, half-helping ourselves.]


 

Disorganized people are too busy because they repeat their problems and their tasks.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Disorganized people make more errors, cause more distractions, and tend to annoy more-organized people.

Disorganized people are work expanders.

Disorganized people are work repeaters.

Disorganized people think they are too busy....they blame Time when the real culprit is their personal disorganization/mayhem.

We can choose to multi-task and struggle or we can choose to task-multi and win.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If we try to cram multiple pieces of work into a time frame we lose focus and dilute concentration. The result is, at best, a mediocre pile of lower-calibre work.

If we focus our efforts to generate a single excellent result from a single piece of work during that time frame, we have the potential for work mastery.

If plan how to generate multiple future results from a single piece of work then focus our efforts to generate a single piece of work during that time frame, we have the potential to create excellent work and accomplish much more. We can, for example, build excellent things once and sell them many times. And, we can deliver huge value.

If you want to be a leader in your industry sector, return phone calls and respond to e-mail.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Successful people seem to have more time. Also, with the current trend of slackening business etiquette, returning phone calls and responding to e-mail will be a differential advantage.

Why not take the lead...in a return to common courtesy, improved communication, and real relationships.

Only a silly person would waste time talking about not having enough time.

I mean - you wouldn't throw away perfectly good food while complaining about being hungry...would you?

The time right in front of you is perfectly good time.
