Don't shoot the messenger until you've at least had a chance to see the opportunity.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Too often we close our ears and our minds to those who express objections.

Too often we close our eyes and our minds to opportunities.

Discontent, regardless of how it is packaged, just may be the best vehicle for positive change.

You fool no one and annoy many when you set bars higher than you yourself can jump.

To the full extent possible - do not delegate work you cannot do yourself.

At the very least, take utmost care if you find yourself delegating work you cannot do. 

Should you find yourself delegating work you cannot do yourself, do not make the mistake of being too critical of the performance of others. Be well aware of the limitation caused by your lack of ability to help them improve.

Wow - you're sure surprised to find others become silent when you put down their ideas!

Try putting an end to receiving input from people then vetoing their ideas and shutting people down.

Even better, try putting an end to asking people for input, receiving the input you requested, then vetoing ideas and shutting people down...that one really burns people.

Those who seek perfection in others will find the human condition is permeated with imperfections.

Do not assume you are your own harshest critic

Do not assume your perceptions of others are unbiased or fair or reasonable.

Do not be blinded by the worst in people.

 

The less confident you feel the more you criticize others.

So, Confidence is criticism's antidote.

So you have a mind like a steel trap do you…then you will know intelligent life forms choose to avoid traps.

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