Anyone Else Think Like This?

The awkward and correct answer is “no”

Texting and driving
This used to be me. Phone in hand in busy rush hour traffic. Texting and driving. Photo: Less than 24 hours ago at a 30-lane intersection near Interstate 4 and Universal Studios. Also two blocks from my gym. There is a car seat in back too, but it was empty.

 

The awkward and correct answer is “no”.

Tough love.

Danger – codependency.

Obviously, life is hard.

It’s our job to figure it out.

The long way is the short cut.

Last night at the College Admissions presentation. All four panelists are College Admissions Directors. The University of Moscow Director was absent due to a canceled flight.

 

When you least expect it, personal responsibility has a growth spurt.

Last night, i observed many parents taking notes, but only one student.

Dear Son

Trying to fit a mold is dangerous

quote
Yeah but, i don’t want to ruin my chances for a promotion.

 

Big company or small company, the internal competition for promotion is relative.

Bad moves are remembered well.

So don’t ever make any, right?

You know, play it safe.

You can let loose and be yourself when you retire.

The long way is the short cut. Each important piece of cultural architecture has a positive ripple effect when you have it in place and a negative ripple effect when it isn’t.

 

The hardest thing in the world is to change who we are once we are well into our career. However, it SHOULD be the easiest thing because what we are really asked to do is to simply keep getting better.

Summary of 11 points, jeff noel style.

  1. You’re too Monotonous. Doing the same things and expecting your results to happen better and faster.
  2. You’re doing workplace initiatives you hate.
  3. You are starting with the wrong mindset.
  4. You’re always focused on the same things, in the same way.
  5. You refuse to do what it takes to have focus and discipline.
  6. You are neglecting a holistic approach to organizational vibrancy.
  7. You use a ready, fire, aim approach to making progress.
  8. You rush from one thing to another and don’t fully understand the inter-connectedness of the easy beginnings and easy endings.
  9. You only want to focus on what you’re good at, and not a 360 analysis.
  10. Rush, rush, rush. You do too many things that others can, and should, be doing.
  11. The long way is the short cut. Each important piece of cultural architecture has a positive ripple effect when you have it in place and a negative ripple effect when it isn’t.

Personal trainers, executive coaches, High School Counselors, Physicians, and so on, they are at their finest when they are 100% honest, transparent, and forthcoming.

The truth hurts.

The truth can set you free.

Pick wisely.
