MISSION MINDED

“When strength is the mission, hard is the standard and work is the requirement.  When comfort is the objective, easy is acceptable and effort is an afterthought.” –  Brian Kight Another good thought from organizational consultant Brian Kight. “When strength is the mission.” I heard very many years ago that successful organizations are strong, fast and agile. Strong enough to face the challenges and embrace the opportunities. Fast enough to be quick on the scene […]

MAKING A GOOD PROCESS BETTER

A “lean” parable:  I go to airports a lot.  Some folks like to get to the airport early.  I don’t.  My goal is to get there as early as necessary.  No sooner.  I think it’s “lean” not to spend extra time in airports.  I’ve gotten my routine down.  It works well for me.  I have a good place to park.  I dress the right way not to trigger alarms.  I can break down my luggage […]

SURPASSING YOUR GOALS

Jon Acuff says, “spare change adds up.” Here’s what he means.  If he has a goal, he goes just a bit farther. If he’s trying to save $5 a week, he saves $6 instead.  That “spare change” will be $52 at the end of the year. If he’s running a mile, he goes an extra hundred yards. If he’s trying to build 2,000 pallets, he shoots for 2,100. The idea is that if you do […]

MOVING TOWARD THE GOAL

Yellowstone quote of the week: “There are two roads in life,” Rip Wheeler narrates in this latest Yellowstone Season 4 trailer.  “One is you’re winning or learning.  The other is you’re losing.  All the way to the grave.” Don’t know if you watch the series.  It’s violent, profane but has a good storyline. Rip was coaching a young boy on his life choices.  Trying to get him to change direction.  He was on a failure path. Defining what a win is […]

HABITS INVOLVE PERSPECTIVE, PRIORITY, AND PRACTICE

Perspective. Priority. Practice. Breaking a habit or creating a new habit is difficult.  That’s why New Year’s resolutions are so tough to create.   Our “lean” manager Steve Roberts shared some psychology that he learned recently by listening to a sermon.   The speaker was talking about the 3 P’s:  Perspective, Priority, and Practice.   According to the speaker, the mistake that we make is that we begin to practice before we align our thoughts.  Steve explained […]

DO OTHERS READILY TRUST YOU?  

“Trust is not granted due to your position.  It is earned due to your behavior.” – Tim Kight If behavior earns trust, it starts by creating relationships. I have a grandson just under two years old. As he is growing, he goes through periods his mother calls “stranger danger.”  In other words, he appropriately keeps his distance from those he doesn’t “know.” I don’t see him all the time so there have been times I’ve […]

CHOOSING WISELY

Caught this meme on the internet: “Change before you have to.” What changes are you working on right now? We all know about “have to” changes.  A great example is your health.  Somehow or another a health scare pops up.  It scares you and you adjust your lifestyle to accommodate.  Lose some weight.  Change the diet.  Take on some exercise. Accidents happen.  Sometimes they cause permanent change.  You can take one shortcut, and something happens that changes things forever. Don’t you agree that […]
