Perception is reality...and perceptions change over time, taking reality with them.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Perceptions are fragile things.

Our perceptions are partial, filtered, skewed...

Even some of our most-vivid and most-believed memories are proven wrong.

Powerful leaders take us to new realities.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Powerful leaders possess the ability to bring about 'new realities'...some tremendously good, some tremendously bad.

While hindsight seems 20/20, for most people foresight is not.

So, most people find visions of 'new realities' to be unrealistic. Regardless, in powerful leaders' minds, they are visions of crystal-clear realism.

When you see your boss's weaknesses do you see your opportunities?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Many people complain about the boss. That's the norm.

Few people realize the boss' weaknesses are prime routes to opportunities. That's unfortunate.

Allow your Talents to rescue your boss' weaknesses.

We should make meetings so laborious people choose to do the work between them over presenting excuses during them.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of excuses.

Anticipate Situations.

 

Yes, it can be difficult...that's why it's called work.

But, Difficult should not mean Unpleasant.

Physically-difficult work burns up energy in muscles, etc. It strengthens the muscles...that's a good thing...unless you're lazy, in which case physically-difficult work would be annoying.

Cognitively-difficult work burns up energy in neurons and other places. It strengthens neuronal connections...that's a good thing...unless you're lazy...then work, again, would become annoying.

About being annoyed or stressed out, etc: the cause behind negative feelings is not work. So, let's not place the blame on work when, in fact, there is another culprit.
