Dr Zimmerman’s Tuesday Tip — How To Make Sure Your Change Does Not Flop

Cash

A man walked into a psychiatrist’s office. He said, “Doc, every time I see nickels, dimes, and quarters, I have a panic attack! What’s my problem?”

“Oh, that’s easy,” the doctor answered. “You’re just afraid of change.”

Well, maybe you, or your team, or your company is afraid of change — especially in these turbulent times.  So you shy away from it.  Or you try to stop it.  Or you say, “Things aren’t that bad … It’s still working … So why bother to change anything?”

Others of you, on both sides of the political spectrum, are saying that just about everything in this country is rotten and everything needs to change.  You’re an advocate for change. 

The problem is … no matter what your response to change might be … most people are not very effective in dealing with change.  So let me give you a few principles of effective change management that come from my Journey-to-the-Extraordinary program. 

(B.T.W.  My last public offering of the Journey will be in the Spring of 2020.  Look for registration information in future Tuesday Tips.)

Dr Zimmerman’s Tuesday Tip — Everything else being equal, commitment wins every time

Most people don’t understand that success is not a matter of luck.  Nor does it have a great deal to do with having the right connections. 

Success is a thoroughly studied science, filled with laws and principles that really work IF you understand them and apply them. 

Unfortunately most people don’t even know those laws exist. 

That’s why I’ve spent more than 20 years developing and delivering my two-day program, The Journey to the Extraordinary.  Because I’ve learned what those success laws are and want to share them with everyone who will listen. 

In last week’s Tuesday Tip, I hinted at a couple of those laws:  to toil awhile and to endure awhile.… read the full article
