You’ve likely heard this before… “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Says who? I mean come on. If prevention was so popular why would we see so many “cures” being marketed. Why? Because of basic human nature that’s why.

We play the odds, we ‘wait and see’. We figure that if it breaks then we’ll fix it. Afterall, if it never breaks maybe the prevention was never required – who can tell…

Prevention is the smart thing to do – no doubt about it. But mankind is not all about making ‘smart moves’, we make decisions based on emotion, ego, and occasionally, sometimes logic.

Most of us would like to be better communicators. As leaders, co-workers, team members and in all of the other roles we play both professionally and personally, we know that communication is a major key to success.

When we are frustrated or stymied by something, often better communication would have improved it.

Consider the new executive or manager who walks into their first meeting. Every movement is watched. Where they sit is analyzed. What they say is discussed later. Did they make declarative statements or ask questions? Did they smile? Were they quiet or too quiet? What about their tone of voice?

Your business success depends on your ability to promote your services, your products, and yourself. Fortunately, promotion is simple. I know…you hate selling. “But, I’m not a born salesperson,” you say. “I don’t want to hustle people.” And, images of high-pressure, arm-twisting solicitors come to mind. But, that doesn’t have to be you. You’re not pushing your services/products onto others; people will buy them because they need them and because they have a relationship with you. It’s the personal connection you make with your prospects that will help them remember you, and like you.

Something the successful business person needs is – lots of Energy!
You need Brain Energy and you need Body Energy. However as with any other kind of energy, it’s constantly being drained away and needs replacing.

Dealing with people, your customers and your team, can both drain your brain and your body – and you probably don’t need me to tell you that.

Let’s look at Brain Energy – Imagine that you receive a letter from your bank manager saying – – “I need you to come in and see me.” If you react to that with – “Oh no! What does he want, what’s wrong now? Maybe he wants to recall my loan.” That sort of reaction drains your brain of energy and gives you stress.

Let’s face it: at one point or another, we are all bound to procrastinate on something. Even the most efficient time-manager will have a bump in the road now and then. But what happens when procrastination becomes the norm instead of the exception? While Nike® tells us to “Just Do It,” what happens when we “Just Don’t!”

I’m sure you have a bright idea hidden somewhere in the back of your mind that you just can’t wait to test out. Of course you’re not the only one with the bright idea. So what motivates you to churn those creative, or even inspiring juices to its utmost flavor?

It’s always best to set up a personal goal where you can accomplish the most in record time, maybe like mowing the lawn in an hour before the big game on TV. A correct and positive attitude in whatever you do will make things easier, and even enjoyable.
