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

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

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!

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

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.

When you see your boss's weaknesses do you see your opportunities?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Many people complain about the boss. That's the norm.

Few people realize the boss' weaknesses are prime routes to opportunities. That's unfortunate.

Allow your Talents to rescue your boss' weaknesses.
