Knowledge costs money and lack of knowledge costs more.

by Rick Baker
On Jun 30, 2021

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We must pay to learn.

We can buy knowledge contained in books.

We can buy knowledge contained in hard knocks

We must pay much for knowledge in order to have much.

If we do not pay much for knowledge, we pay even more.

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.

Workplace High-Pressure: does it cut the feet out from under your smartest people?

by Rick Baker

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

A high IQ doesn’t necessarily mean a high ability to work under stress. In fact, it is possible the opposite is true. Do you assume smart folks operate smart when the pressure is on? If so, perhaps, when the pressure is on people disappoint you.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

All situations offer, at least, small learning experiences.

All situations provide the opportunity for self-discovery and building self-confidence.

Be nothing if not courageous.

by Rick Baker

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It's about personal values

  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to others?
  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to ourselves?
  • If we are not courageous, how do we take chances, fail, learn and grow?
