The essence of business is exchange of value.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Stephen R Covey taught - the essence of business is relationships. I believe the essence of business is exchange of value. I believe, in business, exchange of value includes building relationships. Relationships is a subset of the value exchanged in business. No question - relationships are an essential ingredient of life. [Unless, I suppose, one is able to live the life of a hermit.] Certainly, relationships are the essence of society, whether family or community or all of human civilization.

When we to want to win at all costs, our perspectives become quite blind to the realities of situations.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Some people cannot adjust their thinking to fit the realities of the situations at hand.

Some people cannot even begin to untie their emotions, so they can use logic to think about the real facts they face in situations.

Perhaps, the problem is, their Ego must cry out for help regardless of the situation they face?  

 

 

Business flourishes when pleasant-enough personalities exchange interesting ideas.

Some never tire of fighting the same battles, using the same weapons, & meeting the same defeats. What peculiar stamina!

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?

People are 'selflings': that's a good rather than a bad thing...so focus on yourself...regularly.

About that suffix 'ling': yes, often pejorative; but, not always.

So, cut other selflings some slack, as they will have to do for you if you are to achieve your desires.

Your personality strengths give you a chance. What you do with them today is what really counts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Your personality may take a back seat to what you do...especially when the going gets tough.

We judge others by what they do.

We trust others by what they do. 

Others do the same to us.
