Robert Stevenson’s Thoughts on the Pursuit of Excellence

Fix What Needs Fixing

August 26, 2023

by Robert Stevenson

I see a lot of valuable time being wasted in companies with people trying to improve something that is already working great. It is important to always be looking for ways to improve, but it is more important to be working on things that need improving. I live, work, and operate by what I like to refer to as The Stapler Principle. This principle has helped me immeasurably in being more efficient, which can also equate into being more successful.

Nothing Happens Without a Sale

by Robert Stevenson

One of the biggest mistakes any company makes is not educating everyone in their organization that they are “ALL” involved in SALES. Nothing happens without sales being made … nothing! Great customer service helps bring customers back … but so many people in companies feel that because they may not have any direct contact with a customer, client, patron, consumer, (whatever it is you want to call them) then they have nothing to do with sales.

One Step at a Time

Your life is postponed from progressing if you can’t make up your mind where you want to go. The older I get the more I find that every day is an important day. I see so many people wasting time, floundering through life, wondering why their life isn’t going the way they want it to go. There is good news and bad news about the statement I just made.

You’ll Never Regret Being Fair

Being fair seems, in many cases, difficult for people. Many people are selfish and only want what is best for them. So, how can you reach an agreement of fairness between two parties? One excellent example is in the simple cutting of a pie. The easy way to make sure both parties are happy with the results is to have one person cut the pie and the other person gets to pick which piece they want. Simply Stated: “You cut the pie and I’ll pick the piece.”

Why is Common Sense So Uncommon?

August 21, 2022

by Robert Stevenson

If you want to advance your career, be successful in sales, become an effective leader or have more friends and associates willing to help you out when needed, then I suggest you become a student on how to develop strong human relationships. The “Common Sense” I am talking about today will be focused on that one point.
