Educate Yourself So You Can Take Advantage

Educate Yourself So You Can Take Advantage

I am telling you this because in my opinion, we have around a year left of a somewhat crash. I think we will see a small correction after the election – no matter who wins – and then it will slowly dip back down after that.

Do Not Seek Praise – Seek Criticism

Do Not Seek Praise – Seek Criticism

Instead, if you look at your product with some what is wrong with it glasses on, you are much more likely to get an answer that will help you improve.

What Is Your Action?

What Is Your Action?

If you truly think about what your action is supposed to be, it will make it 10x easier for you as well as make you more effective.

Aggressive Patience – Again.

Aggressive Patience – Again.

I have written about this before, but I personally need to hear it so I am going to write about it again.

Windmillers Words

The following is penned from the book It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be by Paul Arden. I recently reread the book and this is one of my favorite sections from it.

Here you go –

It is quite easy to get approval if we ask enough people, or if we ask those who are likely to tell us exactly what we wish to hear.

The likelihood is that most will tell us nice things rather than be too critical. Also, we as humans have a tendency to mute out the bad that comes from others, and only hear the good. Selective hearing some could say.

So if you have produced a pleasantly acceptable piece of work, you will have proved to yourself that it is good because others will say so.

The work you have done is probably okay, but probably not great.

Instead, if you look at your product with some what is wrong with it glasses on, you are much more likely to get an answer that will help you improve.

Your idea as a whole may even improve.

And yet you are always in the position to reject criticism if you feel it is incorrect.

Arden’s book is stocked full of 1-2 page short essays that each hit you with an incredible truth. The precision of the ideas make it easy to decipher the meaning behind his words.

Thanks.

Kansas City displayed more grit and toughness during the 2019 playoffs than any team has before them.

Patrick Mahomes capped off another incredible campaign behind center with a Super Bowl victory and a Super Bowl MVP award to go right alongside. He showed over and over again that positivity and intense leadership can get the job done in any situation. All three games of the Chiefs incredible playoff run featured a deficit of 10 points or more at some point in the game. Mahomes and the Chiefs never lost sight of the end goal – victory. Winning each game meant they were one step closer to bringing the Lombardi trophy back to Kansas City for the first time in 50 years.
