Forget the snooze button. When you hear a wake-up call, wake up.
That money is not the secret to happiness has been well documented. You need enough of it, sure, but beyond a point it ceases to matter. So what really matters? What makes people happy? The magazine 'American Psychologist' identified three factors, the three things you need to have in some measure to be truly happy. Call it ACE triology if you will. The three needs are: Autonomy: the freedom to do as you please; Connectivity: the ability to stay in touch with friends and dear ones; Execute Competence: the opportunities to put to use your special talents and abilities.
Wanting more puts us on a never-ending ride. Like a roller coaster, whose operator has vanished - there is no one to switch off! It starts as a fun ride but not being able to get off means it is not fun anymore.
It is good to remember that true happiness comes not from getting (and wanting) more but from being satisfied with what you get. From knowing that enough is, well, enough. As a wise man put it, you don't have to be successful to be happy. Happiness can make you a success.
Your personal values are not just what you espouse. It is how you behave and react in the face of temptation, under pressure, even when you know that no one else would know.
Great leaders, and great organizations are built on strong fundamentals. On a no-compromise adherence to a stated value system. Adherence by all - not just by some people. Adherence at all times - not just when it is convenient.
You could have had the finest education. You may be a master in your chosen field. You could be a really senior manager. But if you really want to succeed, you need to learn to respect people. That is perhaps the most critical skill for success. At work. And in life.
Failing to take people along can render your best investments futile. Often we pay too much attention to building the system and the process but don't bother about getting the support and involvement of the people, who will make it happen. That is a recipe for disaster.
Break pot, get prize. No pot, no prize! You have to demonstrate results.
Passion and teamwork can turn a bunch of ordinary folks into an unbeatable, winning team.
Team Work quotes
Successful leaders understand the need to look at things from the other's perspective. They seek to understand what turns others on. And then get to work on those levers. Not on what their personal outlook or passion might be. They also understand that while the worm will get the fish, if you go rabbit hunting, the worms won't work. Different people have different needs. And understanding their needs is the key to success.
Every organization sees itself as a full-to-the-brim cup when a leader arrives. Like sugar in a cup of milk, leaders must learn to mingle with the team and be willing to let their ego, become subservient to the needs of the team. Once the sugar dissolves in the milk, you want people to explain how sweet the milk is. Not how good the sugar was.
It all boils down to the attitude of the new leader. There is enough research to show that the first 100 days are critical for a new leader, in any such situation. The first few steps, the early interactions with the team, the initial impact and the overall chemistry between the leader and his team in the early days often define the long term success - or failure - of that engagement.
Humility works like magic. And it is good to understand that when you have people working under you or for you, you depend on them far more than you realize. You might think you are in control, that you are the boss, when the reality is quite the opposite.
Great leaders are really all about this. Leading from the front. Rolling up their sleeves. Being one with the front-line colleagues who get the work done. And working as a team, with scant regard for hierarchy. And doing all this because they believe. Not because someone is watching.
The eat-that-frog philosophy is, ultimately, not just about managing time. It is perhaps good advice for managing life. In relationships and at work, it pays to grab the bull by its horns, forget the trivial bits and focus on the big-ticket items. They make the biggest difference.
Just because you do a good deed to a scorpion, it doesn't mean that it will stop him from stinging you. Scorpions are scorpions. They sting. Expecting otherwise will set you up for disappointment time and again.
... while we spend more on beauty treatments and clothes and cosmetics, we are reluctant to spend much on training ourselves, on opening our minds, on becoming better human beings.
In times of abundance, it is good to be cautious. It may just help stretch the abundance a bit.
Getting money to work for you is no different from getting people to work for you. If you don't treat your money (or your people) with respect, it (they) will leave you.
