no one else to blame.

Taking up space

September 8, 2022

Regardless of where we look, we can probably see all sorts of objects, items and goals accrued or accumulated over time.

As symbols of the consumer society, they remind us of how things are often nice-to-haves as opposed to need-to-haves, to borrow the words from the inspirational book Pig Wrestling by Lindsay and Bawden.

That the things are there is what it is. What is interesting now is the extent to which they continue to provide us with benefits, meaning or pleasure.

And they do, no? Otherwise, they are merely taking up space.

Brian.

Business not busyness

July 24, 2022

On any day, it is likely we could look at our agendas and find them filled with numerous activities. Ideally, these items represent business, not busyness. But who gets to decide the difference?

Getting things done is all well and good, yet again to what extent are they worthwhile endeavours? Answering these questions might require evaluating objectives and prioritizing time to ensure we direct our effort to their realization.

Reflecting on the validity of how we spend our days is an individual exercise that may take a few minutes but could save us many hours of lost productivity. Whether we do it or not might depend on our view of business, not busyness.

Looking the part

July 14, 2022

I know we should not ‘judge a book by its cover’ nor ‘jump to conclusions’. Even so, how do we feel when faced with a specialist who, for whatever reason, does not ‘look the part’?

The other day I was introduced to a gentleman set to provide maintenance work in the building. Although he had no appointment, he was here to introduce himself and inspect the property.

While taking in his words, I observed his socks, sandals, shorts and t-shirt. In fairness, excluding the socks and sandals, I was dressed the same as I had been writing blog posts in my home/office when called to the outside door to meet him.

Had he arrived in immaculately clean coveralls with the name of his company emblazoned on his chest or back, would the impact have been different to what it was in my mind?

How events play out, only time will tell. The first impact was what it was. Ideally, all will proceed smoothly, and the notion of looking the part remains merely that; a notion.

We shall see.

Small changes

July 3, 2022

Do you ever walk into a shop, office or restaurant and immediately begin to mentally list items you’d tidy, change or remove if you were in charge?

This activity of observing is perhaps not meant as a judgement on others, instead may embrace a desire for each one of us to live our potential.

So often, small changes really could produce impactful results. However, for whatever reason, possibly indifference or even a belief their ideas don’t matter, staff appear to accept wilting plants on the reception desk, messy waiting areas or, in some instances, disgusting restrooms.

And it seems companies still fail to understand these things affect how customers, clients and the general public perceive them.

On a personal level, we can turn our observations onto ourselves to assess how well we communicate our values to our stakeholders as we progress through the day. Each choice, action, word uttered or not uttered speaks for us.

So, taking a few minutes right now, what messages are we currently transmitting? Are they those we want them to be, or would a few tweaks serve us better?
