What is life’s most precious resource?

To realize the value of one year: Ask a student who has failed a final exam. To realize the value of one month: Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of one week: Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper. To realize the value of one minute: Ask a person who has missed a train, a bus or a plane. To realize the value of one millisecond: Ask the person who has won a silver medal at the Olympics. Time waits for no one. Treasure every moment you have. You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special. ~Author Unknown

What is life’s most precious resource?

Now many readers might say money, possibly.

However think about it for a second. Certainly money is a precious resource. That’s true but you can always get more money of course. You can earn a bigger salary; you could win the lottery; you could sell some of your possessions if necessary. So in that sense money is not a limited resource.

How about time?

Now time is a limited resource. We’re all limited to 168 hours per week, whether we like it or not. None of us can get more time than that each week however wealthy we may be. We cannot buy more time.

So time’s a very precious commodity. In fact it’s our most precious commodity. It’s the only commodity we cannot get more of, so it must be more precious than anything else.

Therefore if time is so precious we must use it wisely. We must guard it carefully. And we must not allow others to waste our time.

If anyone wants a piece of your time then they must have a very good reason if you’re to agree to their request. If it’s not a good reason, never be afraid to say NO.

Someone asking for a piece of your time is not a obligation on you, it’s simply a request. You decide whether you’ll grant that request.

And it’s perfectly reasonable to say NO, if that’s the most appropriate response from your standpoint.

Always be polite of course but guard your time very carefully. Always remember, it’s your time and you decide how it’s used.

Does being a success really matter?

Do your work with your whole heart and you will succeed; there’s so little competition. ~Elbert Hubbard

So many people are just trying to get through life with as little effort as possible.

Now that’s fair enough, if that’s what you want. Then again, do nothing and you’ll get nothing and you’ll be nothing.

Again, maybe you don’t care. Maybe a stress-free life is much more important to you than being driven to achieve. And that’s a reasonable choice to make.

However we all have enormous potential. We can all make our mark and make a real contribution to life and the people who matter most to us.

If you want more out of life, then success really is there for the taking.

Yes, it requires a lot of hard work and you will need to hone your skills until you are one of the best at what you do. However others do it, so why not you?

Why shouldn’t you make a real difference?

If you can continually focus on your desired outcome then you can and will succeed.

Go the extra mile and you’ll reach a place worthy of the effort you’ve expended. And remember, there’s very little traffic on the extra mile.

There really is far less competition than you think. For most people the required effort is just far too much.

So go on, go for it. You’re as good as anyone and better than most. Believe you can and you will.

Being a success does matter because you have enormous potential and the world needs all the potential it can get. The world needs people just like you to make a difference.

Success and why you should never quit

It’s always too early to quit. ~Norman Vincent Peale

Today I want you to consider success and why you should never quit dear reader.

Achieving any form of success requires determination and a lot of hard work. Anything you want can be yours, if you want it badly enough, but nothing’s for free.

The price you’ll pay is in blood, sweat and tears.

The road to success will also inevitably involve occasional setbacks. That’s the nature of the game we call success. And it is a game where the best players become the winners.

So you’ll need to be single-minded and you’ll need to push yourself very hard. It’s not easy and nor is it meant to be.

From time to time self-doubt will creep into your mind. You’ll start to imagine that maybe you’re not quite good enough. Siren voices in your head will start telling you that it’s all too difficult and that maybe it’s time to quit.

You may even start asking yourself, “Why am I putting myself through all the hard work when I could just spend my life cruising along and having fun?”

The problem is, no pain, no gain. And if you quit, you’ll spend your life wondering what might have been.

So just keep your eye on the prize. Nothing worth having was ever easy to achieve. However it can be done and people do.

You can do it too. All you need is a little self-belief and a genuine desire to make your mark on life.

Just ignore any setbacks; ignore any siren voices in your head; and refuse to give up until you get to where you want to be.

Remember this; quitters never win and winners never quit. Greatness lies within you. So go on, be a winner.

Why should I be positive?

People with positive attitudes make better employees, better friends and better mates.~Michael Josephson

Attitude is a subject I return to frequently. And I do that because from experience I know it matters.

You may think having an attitude is a good thing. Perhaps it is if you want to make it as a rock star. However in just about every other situation in life it won’t work for you.

No employer will be impressed by someone with a negative attitude. No employer will be keen to hire someone with a negative attitude.

Most hiring managers have enough problems to deal with each day without adding to them by hiring someone with a chippy attitude.

And if you’re seeking to make new friends or form a relationship then again you’re unlikely to impress anyone if you have a negative attitude.

Why would anyone want to have their life burdened by a friend or a partner with an attitude problem?

Life is hard enough for most people without them having to put up with someone who is high maintenance because of their attitude.

I can tell you this; your life will be much, much better if you start developing a positive attitude.

Fail to do that and your life is unlikely to be very enjoyable at all. The choice is yours.

Your life will be what you choose to make it.

It’s true, it won’t be perfect. It’s true, you’ll have bad times, as well as good. Everyone does. However if you’re positive, it’ll be easier on your nerves, at least.

Look for the positive in every situation. There’s always something positive there, however small.

So go out, be positive and it will take you further than you might imagine I promise you.

Oprah Winfrey’s Top 10 Rules for Success

Do you want to be successful? Then you would do well to look for successful people, then identiffy and and copy what they do.

Use successful people as your role models.

However the obvious question then is which successful person should you start with as your role model?

Well it probably doesn’t matter in reality, as long as you choose someone.

However Oprah Winfrey could be a very good start in my opinion.

She’s obviously very successful; she started with nothing; and she’s shown herself consistently to be one very smart lady.

Amongst other things, she’s a successful media proprietor, a talk show host, an actress, a producer and a philanthropist.

She’s probably best known for her talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, of course, but she’s a woman from a tough background who’s succeeded is an industry that’s cut-throat, brutal and unforgiving.

And being black and female she would have had to overcome prejudice by the shed-load in order to get where she is now.

You have to respect someone like that and, if you’re sensible, you listen to them too.

Oprah Winfrey would be an ideal role model for anyone and here are her top 10 rules for success. Listen and learn.

15 Quotes by Steve Jobs

Quotes by Steve JobsSteve Jobs was an American entrepreneur and best known as the driving force behind the success of Apple Inc. Together with Steve Wozniak, he was a pioneer of the microcomputer revolution of the 1970s and 1980s.

Famously he dropped out of college and proved, if proof were needed, that you don’t necessarily need qualifications or a college Degree to make an impact and leave a genuine legacy to the world.

What you need is passion and a desire to do something well and to do it better than everyone else. And Steve Jobs had that in spades.

Sadly Steve Jobs died, far too early, at age 56 on October 5, 2011. His death being due to respiratory arrest related to the pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour for which he was being treated at the time.

However his influence on business and technology was enormous and his ideas resonate with people to this day.

In my opinion, he was one of life’s great thinkers and I think his views on life and work are worth reflecting on.

So here are 15 quotes by Steve Jobs which I think are worth a few minutes of your time.

Read them; reflect on them. And then consider your life and where you’re going. Are you living your life with passion or are you just going through the motions?

As Steve Jobs implied, our time is precious. We must live our own lives in our own way. And we cannot be defined by how other people think we should be. We must be ourselves.

Quotes by Steve Jobs:

  1. Stay hungry, stay foolish. ~Steve Jobs
  2. I want to put a ding in the universe. ~Steve Jobs
  3. We’re just enthusiastic about what we do. ~Steve Jobs
  4. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. ~Steve Jobs
  5. My favourite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time. ~Steve Jobs
  6. We hire people who want to make the best things in the world. ~Steve Jobs
  7. Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me. ~Steve Jobs
  8. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. ~Steve Jobs
  9. You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. ~Steve Jobs
  10. That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. ~Steve Jobs
  11. For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. ~Steve Jobs
  12. Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. ~Steve Jobs
  13. I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life. ~Steve Jobs
  14. I think money is a wonderful thing because it enables you to do things. It enables you to invest in ideas that don’t have a short-term payback. ~Steve Jobs
  15. As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups. And I remain extremely concerned when I see what’s happening in our country, which is in many ways the luckiest place in the world. We don’t seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids. ~Steve Jobs

15 things every CEO should know

15 things every CEO should knowToday dear reader, I offer you 15 things every CEO should know, first-time or otherwise.

If you’re reading this then perhaps you’ve just landed a gig in the management hot seat?

They’ve given you a decent office; the key to the executive washroom; and on your office door there’s a polished plate engraved with the words THE BOSS.

It makes you beam with pride, doesn’t it?

Well done! Allow me to offer you my congratulations. Your family will be truly very proud of you.

However before you get too comfortable in your high-backed, leather, executive chair let me offer you a word of advice. Enjoy the moment while you can because the honeymoon won’t last long.

You’re there to deliver results consistently and if you fail to deliver those results, you’ll find the water in which you’re now swimming will become very unforgiving, very quickly. You’re now in the shark tank and you must never forget it.

Businesses exist to enrich their owners and your job is to deliver profit and growth, year-on-year.

No one wants to hear why it can’t be done; or why it hasn’t been done; or that in some way you’ve been unlucky. Excuses count for nothing. Do or die, it’s that simple.

I’ve been in the hot seat myself, so I speak from experience. Equally I speak with the benefit of hindsight because I’ve certainly made plenty of mistakes along the way. However what I can say is that I always tried to make sure that I learned the lessons from my mistakes.

Management at the highest level is tough; very, very tough. They pay you well and provide you with excellent perks for a reason. You never get anything for nothing. They want their pound of flesh in return.

So let me offer you the benefit of my experience now with some observations on things I wish I’d known a lot earlier.

1. Find a decent mentor:

If you’re new to the job then you don’t have to make all the mistakes yourself. It’s a legitimate strategy to learn as much as you can from the experience of others. I wish I’d found myself a decent mentor early on. An experienced, friendly ear with whom problems and their potential solutions can be explored on a regular basis.

Being king or queen of the castle is not easy. Managing people and leading them towards achieving the aims of the business is a difficult task. You might think it’s just a case of issuing orders but it isn’t quite that simple, unfortunately. You must carry people with you. If they’re not working with you then in all probability they’ll be working against you.

So if I was in your position now, I’d find a decent mentor as quickly as possible. Having a mentor is not a sign of weakness; it’s a sign of strength and a sign that you’re willing and able to learn from others.

Learning is a lifelong process. No one starts out as the finished article.

2. Relationships are everything:

When you’re the boss it’s your job to get the most out of every employee. Amongst other things, it’s your job to guide, motivate, encourage, mentor, counsel, discipline and reassure people as and when necessary.

Employees are individuals and different individuals will respond in different ways. Your job is to know the individuals and know which technique to use to get the best out of them as individuals; to get the response that you need at any given time.

In order to know people well you must develop a relationship with them over time. You must care about them and you must take an interest in them and their families.

Employees are much more likely to go the extra mile for you if they really think you care. It’s your job to show them that you care.

That’s not to suggest that you should be a pushover. You must always be firm with people but you should always be fair as well.

3. You can’t be everyone’s friend:

Now having a relationship with individuals in your team doesn’t mean you should try to be their friend.

When you’re the boss there must always be a little bit of distance between you and the people you lead.

Your relationship with individuals can be cordial of course. However having close friendships with people who work for you doesn’t work.

There will be times when you have to come down hard on people; push people; and challenge them. There will be times when you have to discipline them too. Individuals must accept that they work for you and you’re in command.

At the risk of sounding a little dated, the relationship between you and the people you lead is essentially one of master-slave. You’re the authority figure and, whilst they’re perfectly entitled to express opinions and make suggestions, you must have the final say. And you must be the disciplinarian whenever necessary too.

By definition friendship is a relationship of equals.

So I’m sure you can appreciate that it would be difficult to be switching from equals to master-slave and back again as circumstances dictate. In my experience trying to maintain a close friendship with someone of a junior rank doesn’t work, so don’t try.

Maintain a little distance, always.

4. You get what you tolerate:

If you don’t enforce the rules then the rules will be ignored.

If you don’t insist on there being standards then there won’t be any standards.

Tolerate behaviour that is less than acceptable and that’s what you’re likely to get, most of the time.

Tolerate bad practice and bad practice is what you’ll get, most of the time.

As the boss it’s your job to ensure that your employees are in no doubt as to where the boundaries are and what the consequences will be for any transgression. And in the event of any transgression you must act fairly but firmly. That’s essential.

The transgressor must know that punishment follows overstepping the boundary.

However it is equally important for every other employee to see what happens should someone overstep the boundary as well.

Punishing one individual serves a dual purpose in maintaining discipline and professionalism.

5. It’s not what you say, it’s what people hear:

Effective communication depends on you making sure that the receiver of your communication fully understands the message as it was intended to be understood.

Whether you communicate verbally or in writing you must ensure that your message is clear.

It’s not what you say, it’s what you mean and making sure that meaning is interpreted in the way you intended is a critical skill for the boss to develop.

Just because you said it, doesn’t mean they heard it.

It’s not for others to guess what you really meant. Be sure that your real message was heard and is fully understood.

Effective communication is very important.

6. If you want to know the truth, walk around:

There are lots of things going on in the business that you won’t know about. There are lots of things going on that plenty of people hope you’ll never find out.

That’s a fact of life in any business but it’s your job to know.

Should something go seriously wrong then you’re responsible and saying ‘I didn’t know’ is not an adequate plea when you’re being held to account.

If you spend your life locked away in your office then you’re not going to find out, until it’s too late. So it’s essential that you walk around frequently and ask plenty of questions and awkward questions too.

And when you ask questions, you must ensure that people provide you with proper answers to those questions. Don’t allow yourself to be fobbed off with some polite but meaningless response.

Keep asking questions until you know exactly what’s going on. If something looks odd, then don’t be afraid to challenge it. You’re the boss and you have a right to know.

I will often ask questions to which I already know the answer simply to see what response I get. It often provides me with an indication of whether people are being honest with me or whether they’re trying to cover something up. It provides a gauge as to whether I can trust them too.

7. Doing nothing is doing something:

There are times when doing nothing will prove to be the right strategy. A ‘do nothing’ strategy is fine providing it follows a reasoned analysis and is a decision based on a logical conclusion from your analysis.

However doing nothing due to indecision is incompetence.

In these circumstances, in doing nothing you’re actually doing something. That is you’re acting in a completely incompetent fashion and potentially putting your business at risk.

As the boss, you’re the master of the ship. You’re meant to be in control and not simply being driven by events. Allow events to drive you and disaster won’t be too far away.

Indecision and inaction has the potential to damage your business and damage your reputation too.

Indecisiveness will do you no credit at all. In fact it’ll reflect badly on you.

8. Hire for character:

Hiring people can be a tricky business.

In my experience hiring people is one of the hardest parts of the job of being the boss.

Hire someone dishonest and it can be very damaging for the business.

The consequences to the business, and potentially to your own reputation, can be very expensive it you hire the wrong person.

When I’m interviewing someone, I look for integrity first. I look for signs that the individual is honest, has a responsible attitude and has the ability to work effectively within a team. These are vital competencies I think.

Yes of course skills and experience are important.

However if people lack certain skills then that gap can be plugged with training.

If the candidate doesn’t have every skill you’d like then it’s possible to work around that if necessary. To arrange some training once the individual has settled into the team.

Whereas with good character, usually people have it or they don’t.

And if they don’t have it, then it might be a bit naïve to assume that they might develop it whilst they’re on your payroll. Better to make sure they have it right from the start.

It’s my opinion that good character is the most important factor to consider during the hiring process and it’s what I always look for first.

9. Do it right first time:

When you’re the boss there are always many demands on your time.

Sometimes when you’re very busy it’s easy just to have a stab at a task and then leave the job half done.

However if you can’t find the time to do the job right first time; when will you find the time to repeat it such that it’s done properly?

Allowing a bit more time to get it right first time is actually a sensible strategy. Once the job is done, it’s done and you can forget about it and move on.

Not allowing sufficient time to do it properly is a false economy.

Good time management requires you to get it right first time.

10. Delegate wherever possible:

Identify those things which only you can do and which will allow you to make your greatest contribution to the business. It’s on those things you should concentrate and into which you should channel all of your energy.

Anything that can be done by someone else should be delegated.

Don’t be doing what others could be doing for you. That’s not the best use of your time.

However delegation doesn’t mean just giving someone a task and then forgetting about it.

It means giving someone a task with clear deliverables and timescales and then monitoring progress on a regular basis.

Delegated tasks should remain on your ‘radar screen’ and the individual so tasked should be providing you with a regular progress report until the task has been completed.

11. Everyone should know why they’re on the payroll:

Work is just doing stuff for other people in return for money. The stuff being done is an output to be delivered.

Every employee should know exactly what it is they’re meant to deliver. They should know why they’re there and so should you.

Your business is not a job creation scheme. People are your biggest cost and costs must be managed if the business is to remain profitable.

Yes, skilled resource must be there to do whatever is necessary of course.

However there is a balance to be struck between making sure you’re getting the most out of people and crossing the boundary whereby people are being overworked.

You have a duty to get the most out of people but you also have a duty of care to your employees, obviously.

12. Business is show business:

Business is as much about perception as it is reality. The perception you create for your business really matters.

You must get your business and its products noticed. That’s known as promotion.

You can have the best products in the world but if I don’t know they exist then they can’t be solutions to my problems. And every product should solve a problem for the customer.

However even if I do know your business exists, trust matters too. That’s what’s know as brand.

A good reputation will help you but it must be maintained constantly.

And a good reputation starts with offering good products, with excellent customer-facing systems and a great level of customer service.

13. Adapt or die:

We live in a world that’s constantly changing and businesses must constantly adapt if they’re to survive and prosper.

Yesterday’s darlings of given business sectors can today be filing for bankruptcy protection.

Brands that once dominated an industry sector can tomorrow be nothing more than footnotes in commercial history.

Even major corporations can collapse without warning if their executives get their corporate strategy radically wrong. You won’t need to look far should you need any examples.

If you’re business is doing well, that’s great but don’t make the mistake of becoming complacent.

A technology change or a new entrant to your sector can suddenly make life very difficult for your business.

You have to be on top of what’s going on and what the implications may be for your business. And you must keep adapting. It’s a never ending process.

Your business cannot afford to stand still. Adapt constantly or your business will die.

14. Make sure there’s a little ‘me time’:

Being in the management hot seat can be all consuming if you’re not careful.

Equally you can burn out very quickly if you’re not careful.

You’re there to deliver results not to damage your health and well-being or the relationship with your family. So there does need to be a little balance.

So make sure you factor into your schedule a little ‘me time’ on a regular basis.

And make time for your loved ones too. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, as they saying goes.

15. The best leaders are readers:

All the most successful leaders are readers. Constantly broadening their knowledge and honing their skills by reading the latest books, listening to the latest audiobooks and seeking out information through professional journals and conference papers.

Make sure you spend a minimum of 30 minutes each day reading.

If you can get through one book a week then over a year you will have consumed a PhD’s worth of knowledge.

And over time you’ll become one of the most informed leaders in your field.

Here are five books you should consider having at the top of your reading list:-

How to have a healthy relationship with money

How is your relationship with money? Would you say you’re in control of your money or does it all just slip through your fingers the moment you get paid? If it does, you’re not alone.

However unless you learn to manage your money properly you’ll always be poor and your life will always be controlled by ‘The Man’. That dear reader, is a fact.

It doesn’t have to be like that though.

Develop a healthy relationship with money and you can build wealth over time. Pay yourself first and spend less than you earn and you’ll be surprised at how quickly you begin to accumulate wealth.

Paying yourself first means taking a percentage of your money the minute you’re paid and putting it away somewhere safe. The exact percentage depends of how much you earn and your living costs. However a minimum of 10% would be a very good start.

You can always eliminate expenditure if necessary. For instance you can probably live without those expensive coffees you buy on the way into work or that cable TV subscription that you don’t really need.

In the embedded video Noah Hammond shares his thoughts on how to have a healthy relationship with money.

Though relatively short this video is informative and definitely worth watching if you’d like to improve your financial position.

It is well worth a few minutes of your time and I recommend it to you.

How to overcome laziness in 4 steps

How To Overcome Laziness In 4 StepsLaziness can get the best of us. We’d all love to be more productive but often we just lack the energy and the drive. Do you ever feel a little work-shy and sluggish? If so, you’re not alone.

The problem is if we don’t deal with our laziness we’ll never get anything done.

And if we don’t get anything done, it all piles up and increases our stress levels. Small jobs can become very big jobs, if we just leave things for another day.

And that makes it even harder for us to get going and get things done.

We have to be on top of our work all the time, whether we’re in the office or at home.

And to do that we have to be on top of our feelings of laziness and force ourselves to get going if necessary.

Do you need help to overcome your laziness? Don’t worry, help is at hand.
