Eggs don't hatch where scarcity-thinking roosts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Scarcity-thinking stifles curiosity and creativity and when curiosity and creativity are stifled success is elusive.

It is clear, some people fully disagree with these views...they continue to think and talk scarcity...and many people do nothing to correct that problem.

When we were newborn babes, we somehow knew the best way to get what we wanted was kicking and screaming.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When we were newborn babes, we somehow knew the best way to get what we wanted was kicking and screaming.

At first, really nice bigger people encouraged us to take action.

Then, of great surprise to us, many bigger people began a life-long assault aimed at proving otherwise. 

In ancient times it was easy to protect intellectual property...when chisels were stolen few thieves could write in stone.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

There's a long legacy of 'idea theft'. When our ancestors got beyond chisels and stones and into more-formal business, copyright became an issue. Apparently, the case law on copyright dates back to the 6th Century AD. 

Speaking of our ancestors...

Time management tip: file files. Their name lets us know what we are supposed to do with them.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Well...that is why they call them files isn't it?

I mean - those things don't have that name because of some other qualities...shouldn't we do our part to help them live up to their name yet not be confused with their less-flexible, more-abrasive cousins?

About deviant behaviour in business: remove some, emulate some, & take care with the choices you make.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

To influence change, you must focus on specific vital behaviours.

Find 'deviant' behaviour that needs to be removed...find 'deviant' behaviour that needs to be emulated...do these things...and then you create change.

***

DEVIATE...

I mean, from the 'norm'...and some deviate behaviour is in the positive direction!.

Dare to be positively different.

Drive to be positively different.

Thrive to be positively different.
