What Are Your Sources for Knowledge? Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 470

I love learning and gain my knowledge from a variety of sources. Thought leaders, courses, books, and the internet are some of these powerful sources. Yet, I’ve been fortunate to gain much knowledge from my own clients as they are a constant source of inspiration, learning and insights for me. Here are 9 such insights I’d like to share with you today: 

  1. Consistency wins out over intensity every time. Resilience works best when you get ahead of your stressors, or over better, keep them from coming. Richard Citrin, PhD, Citrin Consulting
  2. We build part of a temple that we won’t complete in our lifetime. It’s good that we have the desire, passion and calling even if the temple is not fully built. Karen Wilson-Starks, TRANSLEADERSHIP, INC. ®
  3. There is something about the creative process that puts us at the edge of what we know and understand, demanding that we listen a bit harder, let go a bit more, think a lot less – all as an act of giving life and form to the original impulse that moved us. Aviv Shahar, Aviv Consulting
  4. Did you know that trademark bullies do exist? But who are some of these bullies, what do they do and why is it an issue for brand owners and small businesses? Erik Pelton, Erik M Pelton & Associates, PLLC
  5. Your sales team will tell you it is much easier to keep a current customer than to find a new one. The same is true with good employees. After they leave is a bad time to ask them what it would take to make them stay. Becky Morgan, Fulcrum ConsultingWorks Inc
  6. Never turn off the lights when you are giving a PowerPoint presentation . . . unless you WANT your audience to fall asleep. Leslie Ungar, Electric Impulse Communications
  7. The number one mistake businesses make is minimizing taxes. Accountants are trained to minimize taxes, not to grow businesses. Phil Symchych, SME Business Wealth Builder®
  8. Customers who are referred to a business tend to spend more than customers who come in from marketing. Brad Cleveland
  9. To make next year your best ever, get crystal clear on your passions, mission, core values, goals, success affirmations, and create your mastermind group. Rick Houcek, Soar with Eagles
