KISS: Keep It Simple, Silly!
My niece asked for topics to share with her networking group, this morning so here you go. These are the four things on my mind this morning, primarily from ZamZuu University, Dean, Chris Cokley’s inspiration, last night at the Zamzuupaloosa.
8 Steps to Stay Excited!
1) Focus on Growth. 2) Say, “I am excited”, even when you are not. (The excitement will expand) 3) Understand that we can change the direction of our lives in a moment and we deserve to do this. 4) Set long term, short term goals and carry them out. 5) Look for the good in everyone. 6) Commit to personal growth. 7) Believe in a higher purpose. Flush a negative past out of our minds, start fresh.
I am still very much enjoying the reading of “The Aladdin Factor” by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen. Cokley reinforced and simplified these concepts, last night. What I want to know is: Do you, currently, shop online for anything? What websites do you, currently, shop with? Why? If there was a website that paid you cashback and 30% of commission paid to the parent company, would anything get in the way of switching? Who would you know that would like a site like that, with 13 streams of income=Financially Free Forever? Know any other company that has the solution to the economy and health care crisis?
4 Fs to Goal Setting
Create a clear, concise mental picture. Consider what price you are willing to pay, in time. What is your time frame or deadline? What is your game plan (system and activity) for Family, Finances, Fitness, Fun?
Principles of Success: Keep it Simple
One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the case of the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan’s biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soap box that was empty.
Immediately, the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason, one soap box went through the assembly line empty.
Management asked its engineers to solve the problem. Here are the two solutions from two different approaches:
Solution A: The engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soap boxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. They worked hard and they worked fast but they spent a large amount of money to do so.
Solution B: When a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem, he did not get into complications of X-rays, etc but instead came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.
Always look for simple solutions! Devise the simplest possible solution that solves the problem, and learn to focus on the solution itself and not the problem.
