Just Think!!!

If reaching the goal you have set is not as important as the journey you are on to reach that goal - then to a certain extent we might be able to delete the goal and just enjoy ourselves wherever we are in order to remain on the journey - better that than having the next goal's journey not live up to the one we happen to be on now!!!

If confidence is the key factor to achieving success in business - how long does it take for you to gain confidence?

Just as my images may be mutated on an infinite basis - a business or combination of businesses may now be mutated infinitely in order to continue serving the infinite growing needs of the humans it had set out to serve in the beginning of it's creation - however to continue mutating infinitely it might help for those running the business to be able to think back to it's beginning and realize all the possible choices that existed when that business was first initiated!

Does anyone realize just how integrated all the companies both public and private in this world are?

Without an Entenmann's cake or doughnut in the morning or that Dunkin Donut during coffee break and that Pizza Hut special for dinner while the geniuses of the world are working on their next great invention or programming miracle - how far would these projects go - Coke - a great stimulant that allows people to keep going and going and going is definitely responsible for some of the great progress in this world-

How quickly a business relationship can be saved with a quick response to a question at hand - it doesn't matter whether the answer is an unknown at the moment that the question is posed - the response at least indicates that the person on the other end is sensitive and willing to act to find out the answer to the customer's question - Anything less is unacceptable!

If today is the last day of your life - how long will you spend thinking about buying - going - doing any of the things that you have always dreamt about doing?

similarly - if today is the last day of your life - how much of these last few moments would you want to struggle trying to sell someone on buying something that they are just not interested in - or how many of these moments will you be trying to squeeze those last few pennies from their pockets?

Go ahead - buy it - go ahead let them have it - business will be the better for it overall in addition to your not wasting so much time trying to get more of a prophet when the profit will show up in other ways by not doing what you are doing -

Whichever way you look at it - get those clothes - buy the stock - go on the trip - buy that dinner and see that movie - your life will be better for it and that is the purpose of - the value in having - and the benefit of having money - saved - borrowed - earned - or otherwise - Getting something by giving your money - to an employee - a shop keeper - a ticket taker - a stock broker - is what that dollar - yen - or franc is for - you cannot eat it - you cannot wear it (unless there is some new fashion that I have not seen recently) and you certainly cannot in any way shape or form benefit by keeping it under that mattress - unless you have such a lousy mattress that you are using the money for extra padding in which case I am sure you could buy a cheaper substitute!

With all the intelligence and knowledge - skills and tools that are available today to the modern businesses - why is it that it seems that so many of the publicly traded companies run by extremely intelligent people are not doing that well in the business of conducting their businesses and yet many of the private companies are doing a great job of conducting both a profitable business and a well run one at the same time.

Is it that those who are running the businesses that are traded publicly are not able to keep their focus on two diifferent points and directions? And that the workers within these companies that are traded publicly are now sharing their interests and focus both on their jobs where they get their salaries and on their shares in these publicly traded companies where their futures and dreams lie?

So much more could be accomplished in this world if people on both sides of the fence got used to not selling but presenting the options available to the customer on one side - and that the customer only needs to buy what he or she wants or needs on the other - this new and improved way of functioning in the business world will prove a whole lot more efficient once the masses come around to functioning this way on the buying side and the salepeople get it that no one will buy from them any longer if they try to force or cajole or trick a person into buying something that they are just not interested in - on the selling side -

You've done your research - you're ready for your client - he shows up to make the order - he gives you all the information to fill out the order and then he tells you that he forgot his check - what do you do?

Know that if he spent the time showing up and filling out the order that there is a lot more invested on his part than the check that he forgot - let the check come when it may -

Remember -
the slower you go -
the faster you get
to where you want to be -
because
if you are enjoying where you are -
you don't have to go -
anywhere!

Just what is labor in today's world of so many diverse professions and jobs in so many companies in so many different sectors of this multifaceted economy making up this so diverse a society as ours?

Is it appropriate to label labor with one single word used to refer to all these different occupations?

Each person performing a specific job, profession, assignment or task deserves their own recognition for performing to the best of their unique ability and they also deserve to be recognized as unique in the way they perform that which they do with so major a part of their lives!

The Publicly traded companies - their stock and the media -!

If the stock prices of publicly traded companies are very often determined by psychological interepretation of news which, although it may contain facts and pertinent information to the investor and/or speculator, is always tempered towards the entertaining - then what is really needed to stabilize and alter any trends in market direction is the broadcasting of specifically positively swayed entertainment when presenting any of the news of a company.

This can be done by anyone skilled in the art of the word!

Think! -

Is there a correlation between the development of the brain and the ability to transact business including the assesment of the to be conducted transaction -

If this is the case we either will see the decline of the amount and types of business transactions or may look forward to great leaps in this area -

It looks as if money - finance and the handling of transactions as well as money's "management" may actually be the best thing for our mental development - stick with it - !

What do you think?

Think of how fast the value of one little watt of electricity became so obvious and important to millions of people in the Northeastern region of the American Continent!

There must be other ways to secure that watt even at a higher cost - dependence on one system that can fail is not the answer - solely - let's think of some other means of emergency generation - solar - petrol - natural gas?

I noticed that my stove worked throughout the blackout and I enjoyed something cooked in an orderly and normal fashion -

Is there - or could there be a soon to be developed means of generating the watt for your home utilizing that great new fuel - natural gas?

Claims of the Permission Marketers
are seeming a little bit out of proportion at the moment!

Imagine a world where advertising billboards - store signs - book covers - newspaper and magazine ads, tv and radio commercials - mailed brochures and handout pamphlets all don't exist - the lack of stimulation would be numbing - for those professing permission marketing - how would anyone know what to give permission for? Yes - acquire information from a sneezer in the idea virus vain of things, but how would anyone hear about anything (products, services, innovations) in the first place?

Permission Marketing has it's place in the roster of new tools that are made available with the creation of the Internet

-and by all means let the tool do the work

- but by no means is it the only tool that needs to be mastered and used - that would be like building an entire house with a hammer and never using a saw or a screw driver or a level etc. - A new tool may always receive much attention and it's value may always seem overwhelmingly tremendous - but keeping a good perspective is always the key to using all the tools in the right proprtion -!!!

Of course building a business or a marketing program is not the same as building a house (or an office) - it is most definitely more involved and definitely needs the various advantages of the many tools that do exist for the task! In fact new tools are being created every day - watch out for them -

Imagine spending hours, days, weeks, months, years or generations developing client interest and satisfaction only to have the client be distracted by a new product or service in a fraction of a second -

Advise to a young tradesman - 1748 - Benjamin Franklin

Remember that time is money
He that can earn ten shillings a day
by his lobor, and goes abroad,
or sits idle, one half of that day,
though he spends but sixpence
during his diversion of idleness,
ought not to reckon that his only expense;
he has really spent, or rather thrown away,
five shillings besides.

Most of what is bought and sold in this world is invisible -

Sometimes a transaction may seem to take a nanosecond to occur- while in reality the relationship that led up to the particular transaction took not only one lifetime but a number of generations to develop -
