There is a space between a job well done and perfection where discontent lives. Peace comes from managing that discontent.
Multitasking is not a real thing.
To accomplish multiple tasks, you need to focus on one at a time, and when required, thoughtfully, consciously, shift full focus to the next task.
MLM representatives are not business owners.
They are unpaid sales recruiters for the actual business owners. A business model that can financially devastate better than 90% of the participants may not be a business worth embracing.
The single most important thing leaders can do to help those they serve to be successful is … Listen.
Ask them what they need, then listen to what they tell you. So simply said, so often ignored.
Actively listen to what matters to them, what motivates them, what they want, and what they need. Listen to how they think things can be improved then give them opportunities to make those improvements.
Listen to them in their voice, without trying to fit them safely into a box that is comfortable for you. Listen to them with empathy and with an energy that shows them their issues, concerns, style, strengths, and weaknesses matter, but will not get in the way of their success.
Bad news does not age well.
Get in front of problems, over-communicate obstacles, mess-ups, and needs. Bonus- letting others in on the problem often inspires others to help, and it goes a long way towards paving the way to understanding.
An apology that includes a BUT is not an apology.
That goes double when addressing accountability. “but” has no place.
Winning the argument is not always a winning move.
Truth is the only thing you can never get wrong. When striving to be truly successful. It is pretty powerful to have a skill that you can never get wrong.
