Wow - you're sure surprised to find others become silent when you put down their ideas!

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Try putting an end to receiving input from people then vetoing their ideas and shutting people down.

Even better, try putting an end to asking people for input, receiving the input you requested, then vetoing ideas and shutting people down...that one really burns people.

Problems are both the beast and the beauty of business.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

And beasts are also in the eye of the beholder.


"A beast does not know that he is a beast, and the nearer a man gets to being a beast, the less he knows it."

 George MacDonald, Scottish author, (1824-1905)

Those who seek perfection in others will find the human condition is permeated with imperfections.

Do not assume you are your own harshest critic

Do not assume your perceptions of others are unbiased or fair or reasonable.

Do not be blinded by the worst in people.


You know you need to take small side-steps to get out of a Bad-Habit ruts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Habits exist in loops of brain circuitry.

[Or, at least, that's a description that allows us to understand and address Habits.]

With each repetition, a Habit becomes more ingrained...the Habit groove or rut becomes deeper and deeper. While it may seem this applies more to Bad Habits than to Good Habits, we must not underestimate the force of the good. We must understand the grooves and ruts of several Habits are 'overlapped' and 'intertwined'. Good Habits support one another in positive grooves. Bad Habits support one another in negative ruts.

To escape a Bad-Habit rut we must focus our attention and interest on making a single, small side-step. That's the way to get out of a Bad Habit rut.

There is no set reality; reality is but what we make of it, nothing more, nothing less, unless we ask for another's view.

Along the lines of 'perception is reality' and 'don't assume, ask questions'...and much more.

Time is a most-precious thing. Shame on the people who repeatedly waste time then complain about not having enough of it.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We all have the same amount of time...we know the past is gone...we know we have the present...we only hope we have the future.

We all have choices about how we use up our time.

For example, we can choose to make good use of the 'time scraps' that arrive regularly, during work days and during all other days.
