When a combination of skills, goals, & plans is not present, people give up their dreams & hope.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Skills, goals and plans will always be required. 

Without these basics, work is demoralizing and frustrating.

Without these basics, unless they have tremendous will, people give up their dreams and hope.

You are so derisive...if only you could change that "r" to a "c" you'd have one good character attribute going for you.

This thought occurred to me while I was trying not to listen to a particularly annoying nitpicker.

...but for one letter...

Ever since, I cannot witness criticism without having at least a slight smile.

Our fingers naturally point outwards. Perhaps that's why we point at others when it's time to place blame.

The joys of evolution!

It seems [until someone helps me understand otherwise] we humans are the only animals capable of pointing fingers at others.

We alone enjoy all the benefits of both opposing thumbs and blame-pointing fingers.

It isn't about the amount of formal education.

It isn't about the number of years of prior-employment experience.

It is about agreeing on exchange of value.

And...it does not have to be a painful process.

 


The more you use your talents the harder it is to wear them out.

We struggle when we don't use our Talents...many of us accept that struggling lot in life...and some of us embrace struggling as the starting process that allows learning and growth.

Yet, few of us struggle to use up our Talents.

Isn't that unfortunate!

 

Two keys to beating your competition: (1) Start & (2) Finish.

If you make a habit of doing these two things, you will be leaps & bounds ahead of the pack.

Sure, there are many other things you need to do to serve and succeed.

To deliver value, all of those things must occur between (1) a Start & (2) a Finish.
