Truth and consequences

note about choices and consequences
High School hallway note about choices and consequences.

Unhappiness is best defined as the difference between our talents and our expectations.

Edward de Bono

Even when you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

A shared vision

performing a traceroute
Two nights ago, and an hour on the GoDaddy Tech support line, we did a Traceroute – IP Address related -and yesterday life in WordPress is back to normal. The web speed in WordPress felt like what a compound fracture must feel like in the wilderness.

A simple question, “What’s our vision?”, has the power to transform people, a department, an organization, an industry, the world.

What’s my vision with this Executive client?

A shared vision:

We work together to make our world a better place.

We work together in a rare, glorious, remarkable way that inspires great ideas and great people to do work that accomplishes great things, impossible things.

None of this will fly, however, if i want it more than you do.

The simple question is this, “Do you want it more than i do?”

Should we lower our standards?

Who in their right mind spends this much time, thought, energy, and money on something as unimportant as themed trash cans?

Should we lower our standards?

Each of us is a VIP.

A Very Individual Person.

Each of us has a set of standards for our life, compartmentalized by big life choices (mind, body, spirit, work, home).

While life’s five big choices are independent, they are also co-dependent and symbiotic.

Take work/career.

You have your professional standards.

They serve you and are the foundation for all your professional accomplishments, your skills, and productivity.

Would you, or should you, lower them?

Yeah, i don’t want to lower mine either.

So where do we go from here?

Now what?

Apple gives you 14 days to pickup at the store. Note the additional information about Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend (11.29-12.02). Managing expectations for what is predicable.

Now what?

Saw it coming but hoped i was wrong.

So then, now what?

Price goes up.

Is that fair?

Technically, yes.

Will you hold your ground or be flexible?

Herein lies the challenge.

Expectations are formed by our actions, not by what we say.

If i say there’s a deadline but don’t enforce it, then there really wasn’t a deadline.

This lack of honoring one expectation contaminates all expectations.

What shouldn’t be a tough call might be, meaning the tough call to raise the price to the December 25th deadline price.

Why?

Anyone paying a premium expects flexibility. As in, “cut me a break, man”.

And then there’s the notion that all of this was an exercise in negotiating a bigger picture – contract(s) signed by year end, which is four weeks away.
