“You can do anything, just not everything” – David Allen

It is easier said than done, but in life nothing is impossible, yet you have to sacrifice things to get others done. This relates to nearly everything you do…

There are different ways that people can view life. This is a different approach that might add value to your outlook.

To be successful you have to create opportunity and add value. I previously had looked at all my jobs as stepping stones to my next “job.” I would think about how I would approach my next job search and interviews. I would seek to refine my resume to tailer my experience to the jobs that were available.

Instead of thinking like this, it has served me better to seek opportunities in various markets. I would think of how I could add value to industries, not to positions offered. I am currently in India developing a business. I could look to find a job position once I return to the US where someone has defined a need for this. Or I could seek to create opportunities for other companies and define the value proposition for them.

People know what they want to do with their business, I can make those things happen. Or I could search for jobs that offer something similar to my current skill set. For me to be truly successful I have to make things happen. I have to define where I am going with things. More on this later…

Buy Vs Sell

I was in a conversation with a sales guy recently. He was telling me about a strategy that made sense to me. Basically he does not like to sell people. He likes to have people want to buy. Being that I am generally on the buying end, I understand. I like buying things, but hate being sold. People generally like to buy, it makes them happy. They don’t like to be sold on things though. What are your thoughts on that?

Provide Value

No matter what you do, provide value to your end user. It seems like the people that are striving now are those that provide value to others. In my line of work it is critical. We play with the big dogs and the only way we can compete is by providing value. People appreciate value and will pay for it over everything else in down markets. It even turns out that down markets can be good times for value providers. People trim the fat during down times, and look to value partners. You can gain market share against larger more expensive players when times are tough because you add value.
