Time is important

Time is an important asset. Time is indispensable and irreplaceable. The average age of life expected is approximately 74. Divide that number by 2 and you get 37.  Middle Age, Maybe ?? Do you have more yesterdays or tomorrows? What is the value of time in your life expectancy?

The Value of A Minute:

Time is short

I am an Effective Communication Instructor/Coach at Greystone Preparatory School at Schreiner University and my students will be arriving at the end of July.

Words for the 2020 class of Greystone Preparatory School

Time has no direction; time is devoid of thought, reflection or expression. Time does not require a plan of action.  Time can be full of high-level successes and personal accomplishments.  For a meaningful life, you must perform deep profound thinking and prepare a well thought out, well written plan of action. We want to look at the past years with a grateful heart knowing we have performed at our best.  Planning is required.

Time is short.  Mediocrity is over. Opportunities are knocking.  Answer the call and be blessed.

You can achieve your dreams.  The size does not matter. The bigger the better.  Little things become big things.  You must approach all things as magnanimous. Impressive, grandiose projects require the success of the details. Our world depends on the small details. We live in seconds, minutes, hours and days.

To become a successful military officer, you must understand details are important and all details matter.  In all walks of life, high performance achievers know the slightest mistake can result in a major tragedy.  The nominate factor in quality and excellence in every area of life is performing the little details correctly all the time.  Consistent, persistent, working of small differences produce significant positive long-term results. The philosophy of “details matter” and earning a military commission takes planned intentional work, tremendous self-discipline and a soul depth commitment.

The Power of Effective Communication

Effective Communication creates winning, healthy, good relationships where we are kind to each other, we listen at an empathetic level and we tell the truth.

Creating a healthy relationship is built on integrity, controlling emotions especially temper, eliminating pointing the finger with criticism and condemnation, applying the rule of treating others the way you want to be treated and concentrating on the positive.

The moral definition of Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is looking. Strong relationships must be built on a strong foundation of trust, honesty and integrity. Trust is confidence in the integrity and abilities of people. The structural definition speaks of the force the structure can withstand or the strength of the foundation or building.  In our current culture, integrity matters because without integrity bad things happen.

The top level of Enron management lied, misrepresented financial and economic information, and cheated many people out of millions of dollars of savings and retirement income.  The word integrity was in the Statement of Core Values for Enron. The month before the Enron discretions were found and the Company failed, Ken Lay was on the cover of Continental Airlines magazine as a person of integrity. Integrity is displayed when we say what we mean and mean what we say.  It is all about taking personal responsibility for individual actions and being a positive example for others. Living a life of integrity brings many benefits such as a life of joy, contentment, satisfaction with nothing to hide or fear. You will become known as loyal and someone who can be counted on in times of need.

A lack of integrity in personal relationships creates mistrust, anger, and non-existent communication. Distrust is suspicion of character, agenda, capabilities and track record.  It is important to understand the distinction and the difference between responding and reacting.  Responding builds strong relationships because we measure, think, and select our words thoughtfully and very carefully, and act in ways that build positive relationships. Relationships grow stronger where there is trust and encouragement. Reacting creates an environment of fear, negativity and mistrust with thoughtless actions and words.  In reacting we use our instincts and behave as if all the trouble in the relationship is the fault of the other person. People act like victims and do not take responsibility for their actions. Relationships erode in the Blame Game environment.  In other words, treat others like you want to be treated and the way you want your loved ones treated.  On a personal basis, we all want to be treated with kindness, respect, courtesy, love and appreciation.

Build your relationships based on the philosophy of doing and serving others and also looking for the good in others. Look for the positive character in all people. The more we look for the good qualities, the more good qualities we will find.  Always praise the performer publicly and criticize a bad performance in private.

Join Me April 2nd

Join me in Seguin on April 2, 2019 at 12:00 Noon at the Rotary Club of Seguin for my presentation on Effective Communication.

Effective Communication is the proper exchange of thought, messages, beliefs, feeling, goals, values, facts or information. The keyword is exchange. Effective Communication is not texting on your telephone.  The quality of the message plus the quality of the delivery minus any interference equals the effectiveness of communication. You can control what you say, how you say it, how you look, and how you act in situations of communication. Effective Communication is a contact sport!
