It’s A High Compliment

Can You Spot The Crazy One?
Can You Spot The Crazy One?

How would you like to be called crazy?

Most people would run from it…

Like, “Man, that dude is crazy”.

Or, “Sheez, she’s a nut case”.

I’d take it. In a heartbeat.

In some circles, it’s a high compliment.

As a leader, are you interesting or interested?

Again, not a trick question.

Cautious Loyalty?

Stairway to Organizational Heaven?
Stairway to Organizational Heaven?

Has it ever crossed your mind?

Loyalty. Organizational loyalty. The loyalty you show. The loyalty you receive.

And even if, for what ever reason, you question your current loyalty, where else would you go to find it?

Catch 22, isn’t it?

Here’s a provocative perspective from a business contact from LinkedIn.

Exploiting Chaos!

Walking through an airport this week, a book title caught my eye, “Exploiting Chaos“.

Why?  If I have to explain this to you, you most likely won’t understand. But, because I’m a sucker for people who want to understand and continuously improve, I’ll give it a brief try here.

Chaos is a paradox.  We can (and probably do) hate chaos.  Or, we can (and probably don’t) love chaos.

Hate it for all of the societal norm reasons most hate chaos.

Love it for all the opportunity it brings.  Yes, opportunity.  So once again, if I have to explain this to you, you won’t understand.  But if I were you, I’d quickly try to figure it out, or get left behind.

LinkedIn Profile Quick Tip

LinkedIn profiles.  How many have you read?  I’ve read a ton.

Please forgive me for saying this, “Most of them bore me to tears”. They all say essentially the same thing about the author, “I’m so smart, I’m so smart, I’m so smart”.

The intent, noble.  The result, boring.  Why?  Because they all sound the same. Without creativity, and without courage, we perform the status quo.

Who’s looking to hire status quo?  In today’s tough market, I’m guessing no one.

What prompted this post?  A couple days ago a LinkedIn connection said, “Yours is the best LinkedIn profile ever.  Interesting yet informative”.

Ok, so it’s just one person’s opinion, but it sure feels good to know the intent and the result aligned.
