Good things come in little packages: that's the key to excellent work-process success.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Dr. Richard Carlson taught - "Don't sweat the small stuff".

That's good advice as long as it confined within the following context: (1) do small stuff and do it well & (2) don't feel distressed while you are doing it. There's nothing wrong with sweating while working out the body....although perspiration is a more-delicate word for that body exhaust. When the body works hard it vents exhaust. When the mind works hard it also vents exhaust. This is particularly so when the mind is undisciplined. When we break work into small pieces - tasks - we reduce the amount of that exhaust. And, of more importance, we increase the opportunities to receive [mental, self-generated] rewards for jobs well done.

Organized people get work done; disorganized people get work repeated.

Disorganization = more errors = more fixing of errors = repeated work.

And, of course, disorganization consumes time and generates stresses and anxieties.

Have you noticed - Disorganized people are the ones who complain most about being overworked!

Little of value exists without self-confidence. Self-confidence moves the world.

Self-confidence sustains. Self-confidence is the catalyst of progress. Self-confidence moves people. Self-confidence constructs. Self-confidence moves the world.

Perception is reality...and perceptions change over time, taking reality with them.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Perceptions are fragile things.

Our perceptions are partial, filtered, skewed...

Even some of our most-vivid and most-believed memories are proven wrong.

Powerful leaders take us to new realities.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Powerful leaders possess the ability to bring about 'new realities'...some tremendously good, some tremendously bad.

While hindsight seems 20/20, for most people foresight is not.

So, most people find visions of 'new realities' to be unrealistic. Regardless, in powerful leaders' minds, they are visions of crystal-clear realism.
