Yesterday in the USA it was election day. You may be tired of hearing about the elections and politics, but it does bring up some good points for us business owners to consider.
1-promise what you can deliver.
2-follow through on your promises.
3-stand up for what you believe.
4-everyone has skeletons in their past, don’t deny it.
5-choose to make a difference rather than a disaster.
6-sometimes simple is better.
7-focus less on the negative and don’t bring up the bad stuff about others just to make yourself look better.
8-other people have good opinions and thoughts, let them speak.
9-choose what’s best for the other person too, don’t just be selfish
10-be thankful for the opportunity to try.
I have to say that I think we business owners have done very well in improving our standards and living up to them over the past few years, while the political arena has much work yet to be done. Any time you try to bring two big groups of people like church and state or state and business together people tend to object. But what if instead of objecting to each others presence, we learned how to work together and benefited from the lessons the other has learned? I’ll be we business owners could learn a bit about speaking to people and truly connecting with them from politicians while we teach them the value of honesty and quality.
Have you learned an applicable lesson from this year’s elections? If so, share them in the comments.
