The Power of Three Little Words... by Floyd Wickman
Three words can make all the difference in the world don't you think? Phrases like "I love you" and "I appreciate you" come to mind - but so does "Keep it Simple." Boy we make things complicated sometimes - don't we? We spin things up, create drama, get ourselves tied in a knot, create things that are larger than life...but what does that get us REALLY? If we're honest - not very far. I've found that some of the best successes, the happiest moments and the greatest achievement are born from some of the simplest things.
- Solid practice.
- Fewer, well-chosen words.
- Easy-to-follow directions or presentations.
- Listening more than talking.
- Having a sounding board.
- Following a plan.
- Not re-inventing the wheel.
- Thinking before speaking.
- Continuous learning.
I could go on and on - but you get the picture I know. As we head into the holidays and a brand new year ahead filled with opportunities, possibilities activity - just keep a mental note to yourself not to go too overboard. Not to make things harder than they have to be. Keep it simple.
I'd love to hear how simplifying things has helped you in your life and career. Share them with us on Facebook so everyone can learn!
Have a great one!
