The Dishes Are Gonna Be There When We Get Back

The Dishes Are Gonna Be There When We Get Back

September 13, 2020

Those Dishes Are Gonna Be There When We Get Back - In this story, I share a "sales tool," which works in the workplace or our daily lives.  Deciding to make change little by little, not feeling like you have to tackle everything, learn everything, change everything, but instead methodically making change at our own pace. 

I learned the One Thing around 30 years ago.  It is time to pull it out and dust it off.  In sales, the change might be a simple process or step that you are forgetting or you may not be comfortable with, and so you either avoid it or mismanage the process.  

In life, it can be our family time, our time with our precious children, or catching up with old friends.  See Blog Post with Podcast

Don't Give Up, Don't Ever Give Up - I learned so much from my children, and even more when they became adults.  Yesterday evening while talking with my son Mario, he said, Mom, you need to turn on ESPN and watch this speech. I gotta go. 

I was in a hotel….and even if I was at home, I honestly could not quickly locate ESPN…… so I grab the remote and tried to find ESPN channels…. I found it and turn it on, and it is Jimmy Valvano, who I quickly Googled on my blackberry to figure out why this was so important.  After watching Jimmy V’s speech, I sent a text back to Mario, it read AWESOME.

Outwitting the Devil – written in 1929 – released in 2011, the responder to the questions is either the Devil or Napoleon Hill’s “other self,” Napoleon Hill. 1929 would have never been ready for Unwitting the Devil, and so it was released in 2011.
 
In Three Feet From Gold – Napoleon Hill tells the story of R.U. Darby gave up his dreams of becoming rich by prospecting for gold a mere three feet before a major gold vein was hit.
