The Thinking Behind the Tweet

And, those 3 things - that’s all people do. People Only Do 3 Things: Good Habits, Bad Habits, New Things. Here's a link to explain the thinking.

 

Plan to repeat, repeat, repeat...that's one key to teaching, inspiring, & influencing people.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

Benjamin Franklin

When we observe repetition, we learn.

When we repeat, others have the opportunity to learn.

Seek out people who will encourage you to achieve what they alone know you can.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We benefit when someone or something makes us do what we can.

Sometimes, observant & wise people know our potential for achievement better than we know it ourselves.

Even the great Ralph Waldo Emerson needed that sort of help. Emerson said, "What I most need is somebody to make me do what I can." 

People Only Do 3 Things: Good HabitsBad Habits, & New Things

When we want to develop better habits we need an injection of accountability; we benefit when someone or something makes us do what we can.

Bad habits make no one feel good.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet 

Taking us away from our goals...annoying us and annoying other people.

That's the essence, the definition, of Bad Habits.

Some people take the same route to work every day...if that route is blocked, they cannot find a way to work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Human Beings all creatures of habit.

While considering our goals we always have many routes to achieve them. However, sometimes we just cannot look ahead and see new routes. We become victims of our situations, stalled in the present, stalled in the problem. 

Negative thinking cannot be band-aided into insignificance: it is a thick, multi-layered, multi-textured problem.

When you witness negativity, what do you think?

  • Do you have the ability to understand the negative person's position/situation/perspective?

When you witness negativity, what do you do?

  • Do you deliver the help that is required, to the extent you have the ability to help?

What if that negativity you witness is your own?
