Bee the one that makes a difference.

I have goals and work my plan. I have a strategy that’s constantly refined. I prioritize my time and double triple check my lists. And... I do feel a wonderful old school sense of accomplishment when I get to draw a line through that task completed.

As my morning coffee kicks in and I dive into the day I remind myself on the way out the door to KISS it! “Keep it stupid simple.” You got the plan, your itinerary in hand, now just do the day and have some fun with it. Regardless if I’m meeting with clients or coworkers, teaching a class, or giving a presentation, bottom line is, no matter my personal agenda, it’s really about how I’m going to make a positive difference this day.

Red Coneflowers with Bee.

These are my best days, when it's less about me and more about them. It liberates me from overthinking things. (which I often have a tendency to do) I’m such an in the moment kinda guy and I work best with a simple structure that has wiggle room for improvisation. I know we’ll all have a lot more fun and I think that’s important. They may over time forget the details of what we talked about but they won’t forget how they felt when we talked about it.

For me it’s like music, like being in an ensemble. You can play the same piece of music time and time again from the same exact sheet music, yet it will never ever be performed exactly the same way twice. There are as many variables as there are players in the group and listeners in the audience.

So know the tune and practice your part then KISS it, and Bee the one that makes a difference.

Thanks Cody Carmen ... as one who has a knack for making things really complicated, I've adopted a philosophy to keep the structure simple. Doesn't always work, but I'm getting better at it. :O)

Rene, the KISS method is one I've adhered to for years! Altho, I always heard it as Keep it Simple Stupid. And no wonder you and I are in sync, rythmically we are very similar. Moment-to-moment. 

Loved this post.

Hi Debbie Reynolds ... I need to remind myself of KISS, pretty much every day because I have a real knack for making some things way more complicated than they are ;O) So a little reminder every morning keeps me on the path! You too! Have a great week!
