Thought of the Week- Separate What Offends You With What Affects You!

In life we are presented with a dazzling array of things that offend us. Regrettably the list grows by the hour. However, as the saying goes “if you care about everything, you stand for nothing”.

My thought of the week is that in business and in life it is important that we first distinguish those things that offend you from those things that affect you. My suggestion is that we all need to simply let go of the things that offend but do not affect us. We need to use our limited energy to work on the things that affect us. We must realize that there will always be hate mongers, people who wish to divide us and the unscrupulous who want to sow havoc. Don’t let them live rent free in your head rather bring focus to the things that truly affect you and you care about and let go of the rest.

Onwards!
Dh

Thought of the Week- Getting Better

Oftentimes, as leaders, we spend a lot of our time insuring that the company is improving, that the team are getting better and anyone is pulling in unison and delivering results.

However, at times we are too focused on driving results that we miss the opportunity of an important element of leadership; personal development. My thought of the week is that as leaders we need to be asking our team what can we do to do better and how we can personally do a better job? Don’t let your title get in the way of believing you have all the answers. The feedback can make a real difference if we listen and then act to improve. The reality is that if you are not aware of your opportunity areas you can not improve them. Ask, evolve and get better.

Onwards!
Dh

Thought of the Week- Mouthbreathers Should Be Set Free

There is simply too many mouth breathers and much negativity, anger, jealously and outright hatred in the world.

My thought of the week is that we need to set the mouth breathers free. Take a moment and review how you represent yourself? Are you positive, upbeat and encouraging in your daily interactions? And just as important if you have nothing positive to say, do you do just that.

Onwards!
Dh

Thought of the Week- Elevate from Contender To Leader

There are lots of good companies out there. However, not so many great companies, the ones that lead a category.
We all work hard so why not work for a company that leads, that innovates and shapes the market.
My thought of the week is that you can not always start up your own company but you can help shape your company’s agenda. With that thought in mind how can you elevate your company from being a contender to a leader? What would you change? What would you develop? What would you modify or adapt and adopt? There are clearly other criteria for success but laying this out will get you one step closer to realizing your potential. Onwards! Dh

Thought of the Week- Be Both!

Saw this sign while traveling this week “HumanKind, Be Both” – such a simple but powerful message.
My thought of the week is that in today’s fast paced, sometimes toxic, always busy, world in which we live, it would be great if we could practice being kind. It costs nothing but is priceless. We can all set an example for others to follow—it is our choice to decide if we want to be a positive force for good.
