Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 8/02/10
August 2, 2010—Issue #46
This week’s focus point: Life is more of a rheostat than an “on/off” switch. You can be in favor of some aspects of an issue, and not in favor of others (which is why generic “labels” are so odious—they brand you as “for or against,” “on or off”). Don’t place clients, friends, and colleagues in the awkward position of “take it or leave it.” Compromise is based on mutual best interests being met, which means you have to find the appropriate setting on the thermostat, or it may get very icy or awfully hot.
Monday Morning Perspective: I’ve been broke, but never poor. — impresario Mike Todd, Jr. (When his accountants told him to cut back household spending because of his debt, he famously replied, “I’m thirteen million dollars in debt. What do you want me to do, smoke cheaper cigars?!”)
