Ask value-packed questions. Allow time for people to think, express themselves, and provide value-packed answers.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Part of it is being curious. Part of it is seeking to understand. Part of it is 'Planning Your Work'. 

Much of it is being present and listening.

And you can call it Communication.

Discipline yourself if you wish to persuade others.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Do what I say not what I do does not cut it. Probably, most of us can remember incidents when we were children and adults in positions of authority gave us instructions that they themselves did not follow. To the extent that happened, we learned to resist instructions that came to us as do what I say not what I do. As we gained experience and confidence our resistance to these inconsistent demands increased. Now, we have much trouble following instructions from people who do not lead by example. And, we distrust those who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.

Curiosity doesn't kill cats...it just makes them very interesting.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Maybe, curiosity kills cats; definitely, curiosity motivates people.

Perhaps, many animals are curious. Certainly, some are...cats have a reputation for it. Human beings must be the most curious animal on Earth. Curiosity is in our DNA. Curiosity is the root of innovation, invention, and creativity.

I don't think curiosity kills cats...it just makes them very interesting.

Disciplined thoughts lead to successful actions.

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).

Lack of confidence is evident when people talk too much during good times then talk too little during bad times.

This is especially true when the talk is about credit and blame for results.

...better to aim closer to the Zen, "Is that so".

Energy is primal. Your energy is your gift. How are you making best use of it?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

In 1911, James Allen wrote - "Energy is a moral virtue, its opposing vice being laziness. As a virtue, it can be cultivated, and the lazy man can become energetic by forcibly arousing himself to exertion."

James Allen picked Energy as the 1st of his 'Eight Pillars of Prosperity'. 

Energy - that's the starting point of all achievement!
