The Two Rules for Creating GOOD First Impressions: 1. Be kind. 2. See rule #1.
‘You may be right’ is good. ‘I was wrong’ is good. ‘I can do better’ is good. Say and mean all three and it’s ALL good.
1-problem divided by 2-problem-solvers = Problem solved in half the time. If one of the 2 IS the problem, ‘Hello, long division!’
How to avoid backlash over a comment: Rehash the comment before you launch it.
How to stay happily together: Work through problems together.
‘Heart to heart’ beats ‘head to head.’ No headache. No heartache. Just things to celebrate.
If you appreciate similarities and respect differences, the differences will work with the similarities, to the delight of all.
Look for the good, not the should, in others. You’ll get a much better return on investment with what you find and share.
How to Connect: Drop the feeling of inferior or superior. Take your place as equal to those around you. It will astound you.
How to make a LOT of people not like you: Mistreat one who is liked. Antidote: Respect all and discuss what they care about.
