The Thinking Behind The Tweet

People who have a thorough understanding of themselves do better as business leaders. They understand their strengths and weaknesses; they understand their desires and goals; they understand their internal drivers and their behaviour; they understand their attitude toward and their reactions to situations and other people

Business flourishes when pleasant-enough personalities exchange interesting ideas.

Willpower: use it and it grows as you grow.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Willpower: we use it or it slips away on us.

Willpower relies on energy. Use it wisely. Use it regularly. Drain it. Rebuild it. Strengthen it.

Willpower [and its outcome, self-control]: use it or fail to have it; use it and experience personal growth.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It seems some people never tire of experiencing the same old problems. What peculiar stamina!

Perhaps most of us appear that way when viewed from others' perspectives. [Attribution Bias]

Perhaps when observed by others most of us appear to obstinately cling to the bad habits that limit our ability to deal successfully with other people?

Perhaps my perceptions of other people's behaviour, as I watch them struggle, are too harsh?

If you assume communication is easy, you’re dreaming alone. If you find communication is easy, you may be dreaming with others.

Shared dreams and goals, naturally, breed quality communication.
