‘Integrity’, leadership, communication and performance: the most valuable post you will read this year?

If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters. – Harvey Mackay

The Customer & Leadership Blog

This post is associated with and follows on from the previous post: Want a breakthrough in customer-centricity in 2012?  Start with ‘Integrity’.  This post clarifies what I wrote in the earlier – some people did not get what I was getting at and I take responsibility for that – and extends ‘Integrity’ into the domain of leadership and business performance.  If you are up for being customer-centric and improving the performance of your organisation then you absolutely have to grapple with the domains of ‘Integrity’ and leadership and connect the two together.  So let’s take a deeper look at these and how they fit together.  This is a long post AND you can get a lot of value out of it if you take the time to really read it and digest it.  Some of you are going to find all kind of issues (too long, too boring, too…

The single most important distinction of our lives. And why it doesn’t matter.

I have discovered along the way that when you come from happiness you don’t have to go looking for it. Pain is nearly unavoidable and suffering is always optional. Your “act from what simply makes sense” is for me acting from inspiration, from that small quiet voice that ‘knows’ the way and when I give it the attention it deserves AND act on its wisdom…. even pain becomes optional. This is an awesome post!

A World that WORKS for Everyone?

GoingtobeOK

What is a ‘World that works for everyone, with no one left out and no one left behind’?

This is one of my oldest morning questions and one I have almost no answers that make any difference.  Pick any perspective and there will be plenty of people left out. Jobs are going to continue disappearing and as robots and computers handle more and more that once was for humans what will that mean for ‘everyone’?

Is our environment on earth really headed in a disaster direction or is the conversation all manipulation? How would you know either way?

Is the question the problem?

The vast majority, 98%, let the 2% run, decide, control and earn 98% year after year, decade after decade.  One world for everyone would mean what? Revolution? Counting on someone or something to fix or change it seems dubious, hilarious and since it has never happened before ever, you will be waiting a long long time for nothing.

The caterpillar has no inkling from any perspective it will be a butterfly.  How many caterpillars ever become butterflies?   I am more interested in effortlessness. That is something each of us could actually discover and produce for ourselves. Enough of us just might create a path everyone could follow.

Mind-Blowing Temperature Fraud At NOAA

Reported and ‘recorded’ temperatures are surface fakery run amuk worldwide. Measured, seldom mentioned remains unfudged. Pretty much everything in the lame stream media, all the 3 letter guys, report the same myths. The truth is out there…

Real Science

The measured US temperature data from USHCN shows that the US is on a long-term cooling trend. But the reported temperatures from NOAA show a strong warming trend.

Measured : ushcn.tavg.latest.raw.tar.gz
Reported : ushcn.tavg.latest.FLs.52j.tar.gz

They accomplish this through a spectacular hockey stick of data tampering, which corrupts the US temperature trend by almost two degrees.

ScreenHunter_10008 Jul. 27 12.08

The biggest component of this fraud is making up data. Almost half of all reported US temperature data is now fake. They fill in missing rural data with urban data to create the appearance of non-existent US warming.

The depths of this fraud is breathtaking, but completely consistent with the fraudulent profession which has become known as “climate science”

The Cause for Complaining vs Effective Action and Accomplishment

What is the real cause people use to complain instead of taking action about anything?

When we dream of abundance, friendship, health, happiness, or romance, we seldom wonder how it affects our best interest or anyone else. When we dream of a specific employer, deadline, diet of the month, specific dollar amount, specific love interest, or specific house, we contradict ourselves frequently and may become stuck with an outcome. There are at least five levels of ‘responsibility’ but if you are stuck in one becomingcomplaining lets you pass the blame elsewhere.

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. – Jim Rohn

‘Drive to the light’ is how racecar drivers operate at over 200mph. Keep your eye on the horizon, the end general enough that filling in the between with specifics is how to get there, not the final goal. Each intermediate goal is a temporary pit stop along the way, a place to fill up ones energy reserve on the accomplishment and set off as soon as possible for the horizon. Once in motion toward the light, a new intermediate goal will appear that takes you closer. Keep all your goals safe, if you share them with anyone; first KNOW they will help energize you on the way or keep them secret. The best rule, share and declare only accomplished goals publically.

Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance. – Brian Tracy [and in alignment!]

awareness7We succeed and fail based on our ability to create and live by powerful distinctions. If you only grok ‘picture’ but not ‘window’ or ‘door’ your escape from the rooms you find yourself in would be impossible. If you don’t know the difference between mushrooms and toadstools, you will be sick [or worse] often.   We defend our points of view, our distinctions often to our death or others. Principles do not change but distinctions are something you can take on or put down, like a pair of special glasses, to see if what is there is really there or is just your ‘prescription’ altering the view.

The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion. – Albert Einstein

There are perhaps at least four ‘domains’ of knowing or knowledge. There is all that you know and there is all that you don’t know. Being more accurate, there is all that you know that you know and we tend to live comfortably within those myths and beliefs. There is what you know you don’t know and we are trained to find a doctor or some other expert to solve what we know we don’t know. I hope their knowing what they know is not mostly myth. [Global warming for example] Our direct source of all knowing is an unimaginably large place for what we don’t know that we don’t know. The ability to rummage, dawdle and observe what you don’t know that you don’t know is not taught in any school I attended. The classes are available however. The don’t know that you don’t knowingisworth125know domain does have boundaries however, suggesting some other infinite area holding all of it. I mean the universe is expanding [as claimed since the ‘Big Bang’] to where and what is it expanding?

People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do. – Isaac Asimov

A short aside about superstition and myth you must consider. Before anything is a myth or superstition, it was revered truth first. Black cats are unlucky is an example. Once this was really true and the myth still has power but they are just cats. Pretend for just a short while daily, that everything you see and ‘buy’ as true, is a myth or superstition that owns you. It will push you out of your comfort zone when you take on some other view or perspective. There is humor and wisdom in the exercise.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. – Helen Keller

Until you are willing and able to change what and how you think, nothing in your life will change ‘buy’ your say so. What does is someone else’ say so.

Success Clues and Required Conditions

I have spent decades participating in MLM.

No longer however.

Everyone I know wants more money and more time to spend it on a healthier life. Given

Less than 1% of the MLM community ever does!

Less than 1% of the MLM community ever does!

what MLM offers everyone should be in one. NOT!

The three essential requirements to succeed with any MLM are you must be employed or you lose the income required to pay for the program every month.  You need a large list of a warm and hot market where you are an influencer OR you are willing to build one. The other requirement is a the five plus year commitment to see it to fruition.  Remove any of the three and failure is guaranteed. The numbers tell the tale.  I say much more here!

Time to Push the Envelop, increase the Comfort Zone

Look for my posts besides here!!!

People are always blaming circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.

As long as you live ‘outside’ your comfort zone you will struggle. Live totally inside and you will always come up short. What is just right for you?
