It goes without saying. We are all different. We may share much in common, but it is differences that set us apart.  Learn to use what makes you different in a positive way.  Learn the lesson Timothy Q. Mouse shared with Dumbo to make him embrace those huge ears in the Disney movie classic.

“The very things that held ya down are going to carry ya up, and up and up!”

Mickey Mantle…”It’s Unbelievable!”

Without a healthy dose of humility, we can not grow. What baseball legend Mickey Mantle's quote above suggests is that you don't know what you don't know.

"During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times. I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at-bats a season. That means I played 7 years without ever hitting the ball." – Mickey Mantle.

"Sometimes I think if I had the same body and the same natural ability and someone else's brain, who knows how good a player I might have been." – Mickey Mantle.

Stop and think. Mantle, one of the great baseball players of all time, saying how much he didn't know. Mantle, admitting he could have learned more.

Those who think they know it all put themselves at a disadvantage. Ego checked, willing to learn and apply new ideas, we can grow. ##

Another Key to Success

October 13th, 2013 No comments

If you walked into a restaurant and the server didn't know the menu well, you'd be concerned or miffed.  If even a good restaurant you liked looked the same now as it did twenty years ago and served nothing new or different, you might be looking for another restaurant.

Study your product and service routinely.  See how it can be improved.  Check out this related article in Manufactured Home Living News, Professionalism, the KYPs and Manufactured Housing.##

Coach Potato Quarterbacks

January 23rd, 2012 No comments

We have all met (and/or have been? 😉 Coach Potato Quarterbacks (QB). There is nothing wrong with being the Monday morning QB. It can be entertaining to cheer or jeer what went right and wrong in the last game. A problem with the coach potato QB is that being one changes nothing.

To make a difference, you have to be more directly involved in the game.

We can criticize most any one for most any thing.

When we are honest with ourselves and each other, then we have to admit in any aspect of life, we are either acting as part of the problem or are involved somehow in the solution.

For example, I ponder at times those who are critical of manufactured housing associations. The need for and advantages to associations are compelling. If the association we are a part of needs to improve somehow, are we:

  • playing the role of the couch potato quarterback?
  • Or are we hands on involved, and are acting as a catalyst towards positive goals and solutions?

It takes more sustained effort, discipline and work to build up something good than it does to tear some thing down. While at times we must remove debris or the old and risky structure to make room for the good and the new, the end value is found in building. We must not confuse criticism with construction. We must begin with a candid check of our own attitudes and intentions.

The right attitude, the right intention, goal and solution orientation are the keys to advancement in a career, project, company, association or most any other aspect of life.

Being part of the solution is far more exciting and rewarding than playing the critic or the role of coach potato QB. Those involved in positive solutions are often those who end up ahead of the curve, rather than behind the curve or moving with the herd.
