TRIPLE III TIME: The Negative Side of “Always A Better Way!”

If you look at my website, spend some time reading past blog messages and/or listen to a few Inspiring Innovations LEARNING MOMENTS podcasts, you will realize a continuous theme that suggests there is:

Always A Better Way!” (To Get It Done)

Now at first glance this belief statement appears innocent enough and hopefully encouraging, however if taken with a negative spirit…I appear to be proclaiming that no matter how well you complete a job or task you are accomplishing it will be “Never Good Enough”.

POSITIVE NEGATIVEDuring the course of my career, I have been told that on occasion the drive to find “Always A Better Way!” to improve a service or project has prompted co-workers, organizational partners or colleagues to believe their ideas, support or work will never be sufficient in my view…no matter what.  And the negative side to this personal or professional belief is that it causes individuals to lose their motivation and creative energy to go above and beyond what is normally expected.

So given this “Always A Better Way! vs. Never Good Enough” analysis…what is the TRIPLE III TIME message I am really trying to deliver this week?

Because we are all people who work with people everyday…EVERYDAY, be sure to convey a progressive, positive “Always A Better Way!” SPIRIT as part of your operational style.  I believe individuals will honestly recognize a “Never Good Enough” negative message when they hear it.  However, the key will be in the quality, effective communications you use.  I think you know what I mean.

Never underestimate the impact conveying the right communication SPIRIT can make!
