“No” is your best friend

678When I first saw the appearance of Roel van de Wiele on the stage in the video presentation today, I thought “oh, what a strange man”. And then he started to talk…to talk not about the virtual world, but about the real one and to remind in very intriguing way about the rule “work hard, play hard”.

 Some of his wise words in this video presentation:

  • If you have to eat a frog, don’t stare too long at it. And if you have to eat many frogs, don’t start with the smallest one.
  • When you are enthusiast and you want to make the best of your life, then you often use the word “Yes” – “Yes, I’ll do that”. And you all know it – the “No” is your best friend, but it’s very difficult.
  • In business if two men always agree, one of them is unnecessary.
  • The most beautiful word in the education of the children is “no”, because if you always use “yes” you’re quite likeable, but w/o respect.
  • Say “no” to things, which immediately have results, because that’s not making life in progress.
  • Europeans have the watches and Africans have the time.
  • Goal is a dream with deadline.

Do you want more?

In the video below you could see the inspiring presentation of this charming Belgian, who reminds me not to judge a book by its cover.

Enjoy it!

Have no fear of perfection

184274_10150190438942678_3240268_n
Do you want to provide the perfect product and service to your customers?

Do you want to have the best brand?

Do you want to be the perfect manager and leader?

If you’re clever and ambitious, you’ll have only one answer to all these questions and it will be “Yes”.

 

But because you’re clever you’ll also know, that:

  • in fact business is not about perfection, it’s about progress
  • your product may not be the perfect one, but if you make this product amazing, it’s ok not to be perfect. Sometimes the disadvantages are the real advantages.
  • often it’s better to improve step by step than to delay with the perfect execution.
  • to be perfect you must have priorities in your business and your priorities will be the mirror of your character. What do you want to see in the mirror?
  • having priorities means that the scenario “I’ll do it later/ someday” is the wrong one, because “someday” is not a day of the business week.
  •  “Have no fear of perfection. You’ll never reach it”, said Salvador Dali.

Some people think, that ROI is not a purpose, because best brands weren’t born to be the most profitable, but to make life better. Isn’t it almost PERFECT?

When it’s time to shine, be the brightest!

9Nowadays people present the age as a limit – not only in the business life of one person, but also in the personal life. For example, some people think that after certain age they could not achieve anything in their career and professional life or that other people will think that they will not be useful anymore.

 

But what is this? Let me tell you – it’s a big LIE and there are 3 important things to remember about it:

  • improve yourself every single day
  • work hard, because the hard work will put you where the good luck can find you
  • when the chance comes to the dance floor it’s good to find you dancing.

A great example for that is the video below. Enjoy it and think about it!


And how simple Deshun Wang said it: “When it’s time to shine, be the brightest!”

Manager vs. Leader

In the world full of directors and managers, there is no place for being just an “ordinary guy”.

And if you want to be not just another director/ manager, but a real leader there’s no place for fawning – there’s only a place for being talented, inspirational and filled with passion. That’s what makes the difference between the director and the leader. That’s the reason why there are so many managers/ directors and so few leaders.

Don’t be a fake one

There are so many people

  • working with ENTHUSIASM
  • DEMONSTRATING passion
  • SHOWING pro-activity.

They always look busy and POUND THE ALARM how busy they are, so that the whole world to know it and especially the boss.

They WORK HARD, while all they have to do is to WORK SMARTER & EFFECTIVELY. Working hard doesn’t mean you work effectively. Trying to look good in the eyes of your boss, doesn’t make you a real professional & a leader, it makes you a fake one.

Enjoy the image below and think about it!
