Don't let yourself get so busy you let Situations catch you unprepared...anticipate Situations, plan ahead.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

So many people think they are 'too busy' when the reality is they are 'too unprepared'. They live a business life consumed by a repeated series of fire-fights. Many of the fire-fights are directly linked to specific individuals' behaviour. And, habits being what they are, to a very large degree, behaviour is predictable. Think of a probable Situation. Think of who will be in the Situation. Think of how the people in the Situation will act. Plan your best Actions before the fires start. 

The greatest of leaders change themselves. They mould their character to remove the bad habits that impair leadership.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Sometimes they replace combative attitudes with kind attitudes. Sometimes they toughen up their softness. Either way they mould their character to remove the bad habits that prevent leadership.

Inspire business people by letting them know that you know what they do when they are at work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If you believe people know what you do when you are at work then check again...you may be quite surprised to find others have a very fuzzy impression of your work. Or, they may know almost nothing about your work.

You do not have to emulate them...you can stand out...you can ask them and learn what they do...then you can know what they do...and they will appreciate you for it. 

 

 

 

 

Few situations provide opportunities to do big things; all situations provide opportunities to do small things.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

All situations offer, at least, small learning experiences.

All situations provide the opportunity for self-discovery and building self-confidence.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Of course, Sir Winston Churchill comes to mind, “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” 

Churchill, singularly, inspired a nation.

But, there's more to it...

Churchill inspired himself. 

[...in support of inspiration and daily affirmations]


About Influencing Powerful People - #1

by Rick Baker
On May 27, 2021

Here's a quote from Dirk Schlimm -

I learned that influencing powerful people is a better and more effective route than complaining about them.

This quote touches two important Spirited Leaders' philosophies - 

Constructive Criticism is an Oxymoron

and

Influence is the Essence of Leadership.
