Some weeks things just seem to come easily. Your schedule goes as planned, you are working productively and ahead of schedule, and everything you touch seems to turn out shiny while everyone around you is singing your praises.
Other weeks, instead of shiny, think more brown and sticky.
This week was not shiny. Things came up and got in the way of the plans that I had made to be ultra productive. The things that I did get to just didn’t seem to be as amazing as I had envisioned them. So now, I have two choices – I can either beat myself up about it for the next week, or I can show myself a bit of grace and be determined to do better next week. I think I am going to shoot for the latter.
Also, in case you forgot it was The Masters this past week. Since Tim was front row center for the action, all the pictures you see here come straight from him. Enjoy the views!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Stuff we wrote this past week:
On Tuesday, we started off the week of Tim’s greatest hits with the story of how Chick-fil-A Let Me Down! The fact of the matter is when you establish yourself as a company that constantly delivers, you have to, well…deliver. And when you don’t, we notice.
On Wednesday, there is a belief that millennials are lazy, entitled, and whiney. While there may be some truth to that…can’t we say the same thing about the duds from every generation? Tim wrote the Millennial Myth last year, but it all still holds very true.
On Thursday, we all want to be the smartest, funniest, and most talented. But let’s get real here for a second…how far does all of that get you? Do you know the greatest expression of love? (No, it’s not a heart shaped pizza delivered to someone’s door…but that’s a close second).
On Friday, another edition of Practically Social featured why you should be having more fun at work, Yoda singing about seagulls, and some wise words to live by.
Stuff we liked this week:
First, before you order extra meat on that pizza or a side of guacamole with your burrito, you might want to think about the markup on what you’re about to eat. Or maybe you don’t. Actually, ummm yea, you probably don’t.
Second, when’s the last time you took customer feedback, listened, and responded? Now, when is the last time that customer feedback came from a 5 year old?
Fourth, so these tiny houses are pretty cool…in theory. I am just really unsure of where I would keep my, well, anything.
Fifth, the first time he was just happy to get on base. The second time he may have been a bit irritated. By the third time, he just wanted to go home (no pun intended).
How can we help you?
Well, so that’s a start to our weekend and yours as well. We’ll grow this a little over time as we add content and think of other stuff. During the week, we’re primarily going to write about the five major levels of The First Order of Business, and we’ll share our best tips on management, marketing, and motivation.
In addition, we take requests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s a topic you’d like us to tackle.
Thanks for your time! Enjoy your weekend!
