Quote of the Week

Unclear expectations lead to inefficient processes and subpar performance. - Christine Lotze


Much like the making of fine wine, in order to achieve your goal, you need  a clear understanding of what you're doing, where you're going and how to get to there.  Anything less produces a less gratifying result, be it wine or personal or professional achievement.

Know what is expected, hone your skills and reap the rewards.

  2. I completely agree with this sentiment. The Universe needs to know what you want before it can support you in getting it. Also speaks to the old adage: Be careful what you wish for. The Universe is very efficient. :)

  3. Hilary- True. I you have no idea where you're going, it's hard to know when you get there.

    Jayne- Yeah, you may just decide you don't really want it after all.

  4. This is a good reminder. I don't do this enough -- think through where I'm going.

    I also liked what Jayne said about the Universe; that it's very efficient.

    How's the summer going? Have you completed your projects?

  5. I can't tell you how many places I have worked that should have had all managers memorize this!!!

  6. So true. If you don't you will muddle through and probably end up somewhere you didn't intend to be.

  7. Sara- I think sometimes we are just in a hurry to jump in and don't lay down the groundwork. That's always the boring part. Summer is just flying by, and my projects keep getting sidetracked by other stuff, so I'm just plugging away.

    Katherine- I'm sure there are a great many companies that could benefit from that.

    Babs- That happens all too often, I'm afraid.
