Dec 4th, 2018 – the age old question of focus and execution

Focused mind.

Focused action.

“Concretize” your ideas. Ideas are easy, but never going to crystallize except first put into some tangible form.

Take your own advice. Life wisdom is readily available, the challenge is in the consistent practice.

FEO – find engine optimization.

Fix the cracks when they first appear.

Emotional intelligence is a lifelong learning process.

Immune yourself from the small people’s small, offensive behavior. Keep your cool and focus on your core objectives.

Emotion is your friend. Emotion is your enemy too.

Active awareness of the negative emotions, identify the sources and find opportunities to improve your life.

More important than trying to be the best, trying to get the best onto your team.

It takes practice but is worth the effort : listen to the underlying intentions and thoughts / emotions, not the words and phrases.

Be obsessed with facts in intellectual pursuits, but not dealings with irrational human beings.

It takes training and time to cultivate  a strategic mindset.

You eventually, inevitably come to the conclusion that you can only focus on one thing at a time.

Nov 2nd, 2018 – priorities

Keep your priorities right, in terms of tasks and relationships.

Be a problem solver, a leader, not a whiner.

Be realistic about the actual, underlying nature / reality of all interaction. Be fooled you not by the appearance.

From the position of strength, you negotiate.

From the position of the board, you communicate.

Neglect the strategic objectives and big picture at your own risk.

Be distracted you not from the strategic priorities by low-value, assigned tasks.

Following your rationality not your feelings.

Cultivate a strategic mindset. It’s never too late.

Tighten the deadline, raise the bar, lift the benchmark. Demand from yourself world class performance even if you are in a local league. And don’t forget to give the major league a call.

The simplest task turns into an excruciatingly tough challenge if you compress the deadline or increase the repetition significantly.

Work smart.

Assume leadership traits, even without positions.

It all starts with your awareness.

Up early. Set the right tone from the beginning.

Step up to the plate when the big opportunity emerges.

Blast new paths, take the new challenges. Rest you not on the glory of the past.

Face your fear. Bring out the gems in you that you never before realized.

Focus on your objective. Allow no distraction from the emotional elements.

Oct 29th, 2018 – think long and hard

You are measured by your output and results, not input or intention.

Where focused effort bears fruit, scattered dabbling brews regret.

The importance of placing yourself in a dynamic, positive, and competitive environment.

The importance of shutting out the noise, or whatever that distracts you from reaching your objectives.

It’s hard, so practise: speak less, but create more impact.

You learn more from listening than talking. So shut up and pay attention.

Given a choice, a blank slate, what would your typical day be like?

What is the ONE thing, that trumps all others in importance, in making your life meaningful and fulfilling?

Tough with courtesy. Calm with authority. Sharp with clarity.

Earn it.

Defend your interests, or even mistakes, like you are fighting for the survival of the humankind. Bad advice in the moral realm, important rule in the real world.

On big, important life decisions, take the time to think through your priorities. Once decision made, you go all in like a missile launched, never looking back until the mission accomplished.

On small projects along the path towards your goal, though, it’s the day 1 mindset that celebrates experiments and failures.

At the minimum: be connected, be productive, be mindful.

Hit the points. Fix the key pains. Quick.

Economic value creation, at the core of your daily activities.

What unique contribution are you making to the world EVERYDAY?

What makes you proud? What are you doing everyday that makes your existence a blessing to the rest of the world?

The answer lies in the motion of the journey. Every second presents a new angle and perspective, while the stillness depicted in the oil paintings fades deeper into history.
