Techniques for FIT

  • Give yourself permission to laugh out loud. I love it when my wife reads something and dissolves into laughter. It's contagious. 
  • Delegate. You have too much on your plate and it's okay to ask for help. (I'll bet one of the reasons you're busy is because someone else asked for help and you said yes)
  • Take action when you're 80% of the way there. The effort from 80-100 is huge and unless you're building bridges, most people won't appreciate the difference. 
  • Take credit for the good things that happen to you and walk away from defeat. Seligman's "Learned Optimism" teaches us that. There's nothing wrong with a little self-love. 

Being Human - Predicting the future

The heat this week is brutal. 

Our house faces east, which means that the afternoon sun beats on the back of the house where my office is. 60 years ago, a previous owner had the foresight to plant two big trees in the yard. As the old Chinese proverb goes, "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago." 

What the proverb doesn't say is what type of tree to plant. They planted evergreens. Which means no big leafy canopy for me. With no canopy, there's no relief from the laser like sunshine. 

The second part of the proverb adds, "The second best time is now." That hurts because I've been blaming the previous owners for my summer sunshine/no shade problem going on 15 years now. 

It's planning time for 2017 and companies will be asking the question, where do we want to be next year? 

It's a good question. Humans are not great at predicting the future.

My advice is to keep your plans flexible. 

Random Stuff

You read the invite, right?

What I'm about to say could almost fit into the first section. 

If the invite to the golf event is titled, "The Whiskey Shootout," plan accordingly. 

You've been warned.
