Don't Complicate the Simple

 Maria Sapio "They are the 'get it done' personality style. They want to keep the transaction flowing and free from unnecessary clogs. They are usually easy to work with and return calls/emails/texts in a timely manner. Keep interactions to a minimum. Emails and phone conversations are short and sweet and include bullet points for easy reference."

Right on target - and - Re-Blog!

Original content by Maria Sapio RS334568

When it comes to walking through a business transaction, I have found that there are two types of people...


                                                Those that seem to
                            'Over-Complicate Everything'
                                        and those that
                                       'Keep It Simple'
 


Those that seem to over-complicate everything are a challenge from the initial email/phone call/text or hand shake.  I find myself having to read and re-read emails and having to ask numerous times for extra clarification.  I tend to walk away from a conversation with my head spinning and feeling like there's a dark cloud of confusion hovering overhead.  



Those that keep it simple are a pleasure from the start.  They are the 'get it done' personality style.  They want to keep the transaction flowing and free from unnecessary clogs.  They are usually easy to work with and return calls/emails/texts in a timely manner.  I tend to walk away from a conversation feeling like it has been productive and helpful.

There is no way to transform an 'over-complicate everything' type of person into a 'keep it simple' type of person, but I have found that implementing the following, helps me maintain my sanity:

1.) Keep interactions to a minimum.  Emails and phone conversations are short and sweet and include bullet points for easy reference.
2.) Acknowledge when it's best to revisit a particular point at another time if emotions are running wild.
3.) Recognize that I have no control of their frenzy nor do I need to enter into the unnecessary drama.

4.) Map out the needful route to accomplish the goal and stick with it.

                                             

5.) Understand that 'this too shall pass' and this transaction will not last for eternity but if stamina in running on low, perhaps having a conversation with my broker is a good idea.

Thankfully I have found that the 'over-complicate everything' type of person is rare and most transactions tend to be 'keep it simple' style.

Read the original and agree.  I believe myself a KISS type person and probably too the extreme sometimes.  Mark
