I’m not talking about the top 1% of money earners, which is all relative anyway depending on what you’re referencing, I’m talking about the vocal 1% who don’t get you. You know who I’m talking about; the peers who don’t think you can do something, the customers who are never happy and love telling you about it, the suppliers who never deliver…
These are the vocal ones, the ‘squeaky wheels’, and they are the ones to be careful of.
Because if the squeaky wheels get all the oil, what happens to the other neglected wheels? The wheels who support you, the wheels you love buying from you, the wheels who always deliver for you?
Forget about the 1% and focus on nurturing the 99%, because they deserve it.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
To love and be loved. Isn’t that all there really is?
Almost everyone I know who has achieved greatness in something, be that business, sports, the arts, they all began their journey to escape something.
There’s a lot of talk now about hiring people for attitude rather than skills.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
Sometimes wonderful things take you by surprise, they open a new door.
Have you ever moved into a new house and seen something that needed fixing and thought “I’ll get on to that soon”?
Humans are tribal.
As humans we have an insatiable desire to explain untoward events so we can get on with solutions.
