The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Illustrations of mental prowess can put people off....especially when performed by braggarts and wiseacres.

It's okay to yell and scream at work...celebrations do not have to be subdued.

Baby Boomers, an interesting 'generation': grew up under pressure...watched the first steps on the moon...survived disco music...and some of us still haven't figured out how to stop yelling and screaming at work.

Power of Will - a much-praised attribute and process of character (willpower).

Creativity & Spontaneity - humour, music, art, & invention - these add magic to our lives.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Values, Purpose, Vision, Rules, & Goals are not discreet, stand-alone concepts. They are intertwined. For most People, they are iterative-too...gaining more clarity with time. When you boil business down, its essence is People, Process, & SituationsPeople come first. People bring with them 'Character'...which, for each person, is a summing up of his/her Values, Purpose, Vision, Rules, & Goals. 

About structure...shouldn't your people see your business at least as solid as the building you work in?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Overall, small and mid-sized businesses lack the structure they need to be sustainable, let alone be excellent. Business is about 3 things: People, Process, & Situations. Process means structure: structure for plans; structure for roles; structure for workflow; structure for communications; structure in the form of rules.

Negative feelings by their very nature tend to alienate and isolate us. Then they go about wasting much of our energy.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Feelings are mind states where egos are at work justifying their appetites.

While the voices of ego are little, they are incessant. Barrages of little voices fight to serve and satisfy the huge appetites of egos. Egos, their appetites, and their little but incessant voices are not to be ignored.
