TRIPLE III TIME: “Practicing What YOU Preach!”

First let me admit that taking on this topic message:  “Practicing What YOU Preach!” has been avoided for quite some time.  Why?  Maybe because I am not the best…most complete listener that I preach everyone should be?!  Or maybe I take calculated risks more often and maybe more risky risks than I would admit to in some of my weekly TRIPLE III TIME blog messages.  However, no matter my position, the professional value in this life-long statement of wisdom is regularly accepted across everyone’s workplace and life situations.

Therefore, in order to give “Practicing What YOU Preach!” its full TRIPLE III TIME notoriety, here is a customized TOP 10 that I am sure will hit-home with many:

​1.  Are you giving someone else’s good idea a real, solid chance?

2.  Are you revising your stance that just because your best way worked 15 years ago…it may not be the best way today?

3.  Are you giving employees, partners, customers, co-workers, family…a second or third chance?

4.  ​Are you not being immediately defensive when questioned about an action you took?

5.  Are you accepting change as standard-business activity?

​6.  Are you not preparing an answer in your mind…before you hear the whole story?

7.  Are you really getting things done ahead of schedule…or are old reminders still necessary?

​8.  Are you still ignoring quality research and data that says your cool idea isn’t cool?

9.  Are you limiting your techno-time or are you now addicted to social media?

10.  Oh yeah…are you listening better and more completely everyday…EVERYDAY?

I am sure you are looking in the mirror when you ask yourself the question are you “Practicing What YOU Preach?”  about these or other questions.  Who knows…honesty may show up.

Have fun with this TRIPLE III TIME exercise!
