Some never tire of fighting the same battles, using the same weapons, & meeting the same defeats. What peculiar stamina!

It seems some people never tire of experiencing the same old problems. What peculiar stamina!

Perhaps most of us appear that way when viewed from others' perspectives. [Attribution Bias]

Perhaps when observed by others most of us appear to obstinately cling to the bad habits that limit our ability to deal successfully with other people?

Perhaps my perceptions of other people's behaviour, as I watch them struggle, are too harsh?

If you assume communication is easy, you’re dreaming alone. If you find communication is easy, you may be dreaming with others.

Shared dreams and goals, naturally, breed quality communication.

Dreams of a better future help generate a better future.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Past and future are dreams; now is a reality. All things are now; all power, all possibility, all action, is now."

British author/philosopher James Allen said that in 1903. It seems to me Allen's advice is a key to what most people refer to as 'time management'. I mean, if people pay more attention to the present and less attention to agonizing over the past and worrying about the future then they will feel less stressed...and they will feel like they have more time.

On the other hand, we should not be too harsh on dreams - only dreams of a better future generate that future. As 2 examples, Marconi proved this...so did Martin Luther King Jr.

People are 'selflings': that's a good rather than a bad thing...so focus on yourself...regularly.

About that suffix 'ling': yes, often pejorative; but, not always.

So, cut other selflings some slack, as they will have to do for you if you are to achieve your desires.

You worked in your business, then you worked on your business. Now, you're overdue to work on yourself.

In the Emyth series of books, Michael Gerber explained the value of going beyond working in your business to working on your business.

Too many leaders worked both in and on their businesses but neglected the most-important activity - working on themselves.

As you work in and on your business expect minimal positive changes unless you, first, work on improving yourself.

Duplication annoys some people - others recognize repetition is a key to learning and repeated errors signal failure to learn.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Efficiency happens when things are done right the first time.

Efficiency happens when people learn and remember.

Some people view these as mutually exclusive things.

Isn't that a shame?

Mistakes happen when people try new things.

Mistakes provide opportunities to learn.

Some people don't learn from their errors.

Isn't that a shame?
