You know you need to take small side-steps to get out of a Bad-Habit ruts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Habits exist in loops of brain circuitry.

[Or, at least, that's a description that allows us to understand and address Habits.]

With each repetition, a Habit becomes more ingrained...the Habit groove or rut becomes deeper and deeper. While it may seem this applies more to Bad Habits than to Good Habits, we must not underestimate the force of the good. We must understand the grooves and ruts of several Habits are 'overlapped' and 'intertwined'. Good Habits support one another in positive grooves. Bad Habits support one another in negative ruts.

To escape a Bad-Habit rut we must focus our attention and interest on making a single, small side-step. That's the way to get out of a Bad Habit rut.

There is no set reality; reality is but what we make of it, nothing more, nothing less, unless we ask for another's view.

Along the lines of 'perception is reality' and 'don't assume, ask questions'...and much more.

Time is a most-precious thing. Shame on the people who repeatedly waste time then complain about not having enough of it.

We all have the same amount of time...we know the past is gone...we know we have the present...we only hope we have the future.

We all have choices about how we use up our time.

For example, we can choose to make good use of the 'time scraps' that arrive regularly, during work days and during all other days.

Success Key: find the growth that aligns with both the pessimists’ good habits and the optimists’ interests in new things.

The common ground where optimists and pessimists can stand together and self-actualize together is – Growth....all entrepreneurial leaders love to build and grow things.

 

 

When you make a fine argument...zip it, listen, watch, & learn.

First, learn about the extent of the fineness of your argument. I mean, bring your thick skin and thin skull...and keep your ego under full control.

Was your argument really as fine as you thought?

I didn't see the financial meltdown coming. I didn't see the economic recession coming. I do see some things now...

Having been through those challenges, and rethinking business, I have a better picture of what we need to do to protect our businesses. I know business leaders need to inject Maker-thinking into their business. And, they need to do more good-old-fashioned testing of ideas...that's the entrepreneur-proven route to innovation.

Canadian leaders need to stop avoiding people problems and come up with better ways to remedy them.

Canadian leaders need to start matching talents with tasks.
