TRIPLE III TIME: Slowing The Rush To Help
Growing up in a caring family and eventually spending my entire career centered in assisting people/businesses/organizations to “be better”…has caused me to realize that recent times have pushed everyone to try and help even more quickly/completely than ever before.
Think about it.
Our governments are sending millions of dollars to all areas of our economy to help and improve our country. Technology experts are designing and sharing faster, more efficient computer programs every day. Local schools and colleges are blending and modifying learning/training opportunities that quicken the process of education progress.
So how are we doing?
This week’s TRIPLE III TIME message is a simple answer and recommendation that we all try Slowing The Rush To Help responsibility. What do I mean in everyday practical terms? I mean we need to give the same amount of time to LISTEN to those needing help…as we do prescribing a help solution. Next as we consider an opportunity to help we need to offer assistance based on the TRUE NEEDS of a customer and not help in a way that “fits” our own professional convenience. Finally by Slowing The Rush To Help we may realize that more money or specialty services may not be the best help option. Instead applying PATIENCE, maximizing non-routine OPPORTUNITIES, recruiting additional RESOURCE PARTNERS, and CUSTOMIZING helpful action steps may prove more beneficial.
If we begin Slowing The Rush To Help…time and timing will be on our side.
