Weird couple of days that’s had me reflecting on my connections, work and getting things done. Some basic observations on what seems to help get things done with people:

  • being helpful
  • being sensitive
  • being patient
  • being available
  • being clear
  • being proactive
  • being provocative
  • being firm
  • being a hardass

And some basic observations on what gets in the way with some people:

  • being clear
  • being firm
  • being a hardass

Clarity seems to scare some people all the time – and scares others mostly when it conflicts with their vision, goals and beliefs (duh).

That’s when patience works well.

I’ve noticed that timing is everything and what’s right always/usually/mostly becomes obvious over time.
