The gap

Yesterday, in a Sanibel gift shop.

The gap between what we wish for and what we actually experience is ours to deal with.

The goal seems obvious – eliminate the gap.

How?

Two most compelling ways:

  1. Lower your expectations
  2. Raise your efforts

Picking either one creates a new set of challenges. Challenges are opportunities to create and sustain personal vibrancy.

The other two front running options:

  1. Combination of lower expectations and higher efforts
  2. Learn to live with the gap

Happy present moment.

If you’re not a dreamer, i’m out

Performance Excellence was Judson Green’s vision that began in 1992 and rolled out to all leaders in 1994.

If your goal isn’t impossible, i’m not going to be able to help you.

i thrive on helping others do what they think is impossible.

Tell me your crazy dream.

Take as long as you need.

And be clear, concise (if possible), and compelling.

Why?

Because compelling and clarity feed organizational vibrancy.

You’ll lose your team if they aren’t compelled by the clarity of where you are heading.

And if you lose your team, this means you’ll also lose their teams.

And this repeats itself until it spreads contagiously to your frontline staff.

You’ll also lose me if you aren’t clear and compelling.

Make it so your team’s (and my) only reaction to what you’re saying is, “Wow, that’s incredible.”

Happy Summer Solstice 2018.

What are your expectations this Summer?

There are three key areas for all of us to manage if we want to have a happy Summer.

  1. Reality
  2. Others
  3. Past

Today’s posts review a recent TED Talk…which is available for viewing on today’s final post.

Balance (yeah right)

Will you overwhelm or underwhelm?

There is always the chance that what we offer can be overwhelming to the recipient.

There is always the chance what we offer isn’t nearly enough.

Rethink

If you don’t expect it, you settle

UPS package tracking email screenshot
“The check is in the mail.” Receiving payment in advance is wonderful. And expected.

 

If you don’t expect it, you settle.

You may still have to settle, but without trying, you will always settle.

With trying, you may surprise yourself at how readily the Universe meets you where you are.

Be careful where you hang out.

It’s called (midlife) karma.

Karma attracts fairness and unfairness, but mostly karma is fair.

It’s the less frequent unfairness that tempts us to believe karma is just a lucky break.
