Opinions are a dime a dozen and nearly everyone will share theirs with you. Many will state them as if they are facts. Don't mistake opinions for facts. #principleoftheday
I want to help you discover good principles that suit you and write them down. While that might sound like a lot or like you have a lot to do to develop great principles, that’s not true at all. All you need to do is start journaling and see what comes from it. (1/2)
Many of you have asked me how to develop your own principles. Here are four of my principles to consider while going through this process... (1/2)
The two-minute rule specifies that you have to give someone an uninterrupted two minutes to explain their thinking before jumping in with your own. #principleoftheday (1/2)
Too often groups will make a decision to do something without assigning personal responsibilities, so it is not clear who is supposed to follow up by doing what. Be clear in assigning personal responsibilities. #principleoftheday
People's emotions tend to heat up when there is disagreement. Remain calm and analytical at all times; it is more difficult to shut down a logical exchange than an emotional one. Remember too that emotions can shade how people see reality. #principleoftheday (1/2)
Topic slip is random drifting from topic to topic without achieving completion on any of them. One way to avoid it is by tracking the conversation on a whiteboard so that everyone can see where you are. #principleoftheday
I want to help you discover good principles that suit you and write them down. While that might sound like a lot or like you have a lot to do to develop great principles, that’s not true at all. #principleoftheday (1/2)
My reflections on #Thanksgiving and why it’s my favorite holiday. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
If you just keep doing, you will burn out and grind to a halt. Build downtime into your schedule just as you would make time for all the other stuff that needs to get done. #principleoftheday
When considering an issue or situation, there should be two levels of discussion: the case at hand and the relevant principles that help you decide how the machine should work. #principleoftheday (1/2)
Reconciling different points of view can be difficult and time-consuming. It is up to the meeting leader to balance conflicting perspectives, push through impasses, and decide how to spend time wisely. #principleoftheday (1/5)
If your goal is to have people with different opinions work through their differences to try to get closer to what is true and what to do about it (open-minded debate), you will run your meeting differently than if its goal is to educate. #principleoftheday (1/4)
It is often best to repeat a specific question to be sure both questioner and responder are crystal clear on what is being asked and answered. In an email, this is often as simple as cutting and pasting the questions into the body of the text. #principleoftheday
Every meeting should be aimed at achieving someone's goals; that person is the one responsible for the meeting and decides what they want to get out of it and how they will do so. #principleoftheday (1/2)
There are many reasons why meetings go poorly, but frequently it is because of a lack of clarity about the topic or the level at which things are being discussed (e.g., the principle/machine level, the case-at-hand level, or the specific-fact level). #principleoftheday
A person making suggestions may not have concluded that a mistake will be made--they could just be making doubly sure that the person they're talking to has taken all the risks into consideration. #principleoftheday (1/3)
You have a responsibility to be reasonable and considerate when you are advocating for your point of view and should never let your "lower-level you" gain control, even if the other person loses his or her temper. Their bad behavior doesn't justify yours. #principleoftheday (1/2)
Being open-minded is much more important than being bright or smart. No matter how much they know, closed-minded people will waste your time. If you must deal with them, recognize that there can be no helping them until they open their minds. #principleoftheday
In case you haven't seen it yet, I decided to make a limited-edition, custom-made pen and clip to go with the new journal I created to help people write down their own principles. (1/2)
In any conversation, there is a responsibility to express and a responsibility to listen. Misinterpretations and misunderstandings are always going to happen. #principleoftheday (1/5)
The person responsible for a decision must be able to explain the thinking behind it openly and transparently so that everyone can understand and assess it. #principleoftheday (1/2)
They're likely to be more concerned with appearances than actually achieving the goal; this can lead to ruin over time. #principleoftheday
Open-minded people seek to learn by asking questions; they realize how little they know in relation to what there is to know and recognize that they might be wrong... #principleoftheday (1/3)
Thank you veterans! As today is Veterans Day I want to take a moment to reflect on those who have fought and sacrificed on behalf of those great qualities of America that are worth sacrificing for. (1/2)
