Some Monday quick thinking on adaptability, trust, and several other frequently touched upon topics on the Brainzooming blog:

Adaptability – If your life situation won’t let you swing for the fences, make sure your lineup is filled with high-percentage hitters who can run like crazy.

Trust – You’re not always going to be able to do business with only people you trust. When you can’t avoid it, make sure not to lose the handle on your own honesty and ethics.

Motivation – Ask, “What’s this person’s motivation for the sensationalized world view they’re sharing with me?” It’s often to create fear to get you to do what they want.

Priorities – When you have someone who keeps asking and asking for help with nothing ever in return, remember it can feel really good to say, “Sorry, you’ve got me confused with somebody who still cares.”

Longevity – There’s a lot to be said for newness. There’s more to be said for performing incredibly well day-in-day-out for more than a few months. – Mike Brown

    Good stuff, Mike. When I think of the “longevity”, I link it with perseverance. Certainly there are folks who made it big in a flash, then there are other “regular Joe’s” who had to dig our heels in and wait out the storms. During your younger days in the business are you consistent, delivering, showing up and doing what you said you’d do. Good brain-storm blog on “character building blocks”.

      Appreciate you putting the “character building” label on this post. I hadn’t really thought about how that described all of them. It always wonderful to have you provide that fresh perspective to the content.
