Thought Tweet #644

by Rick Baker
On Jan 3, 2013

Thought Tweet #644 If you had no problems on your mind, would you think?

 

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

I have shared thoughts about problems...for example - some motivational experts are confounded by the word 'Problem'. 

Here`s another - sometimes our brains find themselves stuck in Problem Ruts. We spend so much time thinking about problems that we forget we can think about other things. Specifically, we spend so much time thinking about viewing problems as opportunities-in-disguise we forget we can think about other things. As a few examples, we can also think about: making the most out of a situation, inventing a new process, and making one small improvement to a specific task.

Thought Tweet #509 Desired Actions are always preceded by desired Thoughts. To achieve Goals we must first discipline our Thoughts.


The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Or, we could just leave things to chance and self-confidence...however, at the very least, that would deprive us of the pleasure associated with the cause and effect between our thoughts (causes) and our achievements (effects).

Thought Tweet #441 Good things come in invisible packages.

 

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Of course, there's that old saying, "Good things come in small packages". And, it's true.

And, good things come in invisible packages. Thought: it comes in invisible packages. Even when probes and scans pick up the flashes of neuronal activity, they cannot capture Thoughts. Thoughts are invisible.

Thought Tweet #427

Thought Tweet #427 How do you find the proper balance between 'free' & 'disciplined' thinking?

 

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Creativity versus Logic. Entrepreneurship versus Big Business. Rock Logic versus Water Logic. Einstein versus Socrates. The School of Hard Knocks versus Academia. Right-brain versus Left-brain [which I think is a dangerous over-simplification of how the human brain actually works].

Regardless of how we define their difference we need to keep these opposites in proper balance.

How do you find the proper balance between 'free' & 'disciplined' thinking?

Thought Tweet #411 Persistence is Self-Discipline in Thought then Action.

 

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

Brian Tracy said, "Persistence is self-discipline in action." I believe desired Actions are always preceded by desired Thoughts. In order to achieve Goals we must first discipline our Thoughts then those disciplined Thoughts will govern our Actions.

Thought Tweet #393

by Rick Baker
On Jan 18, 2012
Thought Tweet #393 “No, no, you're not thinking; you're just being logical.”
 
The Thinking Behind the Sales Tweet
The Danish physicist, Niels Bohr, said that. And, Bohr's point applies in business. In business, we often hear people talk about 'doing the right things' as opposed to 'doing things right'. 'Doing things right' is all about doing process 'right'…doing a good job when performing logically-generated processes. 'Doing the right things' is about dealing with people 'right'...doing a good job when working with people.
