Robert Stevenson’s Thoughts on the Pursuit of Excellence


You’ll Never Regret Being Fair

August 28, 2022

by Robert Stevenson

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?

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.



Never Let Other Opinions Determine Your Fate

When I was in my early twenties, I had the opportunity to hear Zig Ziglar speak in Atlanta, Georgia to over 20,000 people at the convention center. Many great speakers spoke that day, but the one who impressed me the most was Zig. He shared a story about his best friend, Bernie Lofchick, that I remember like it was yesterday. The story had a profound effect on my life, so I thought I would share it with you.



Consequences

Is it easier to make a decision when you are spending other people’s money? Absolutely! You have nothing at risk. Would you have made that decision if you were putting your own money at risk? Our decisions have a great deal to do with how they affect us personally.



Eliminating Bad Habits

August 29, 2021

by Robert Stevenson

We all have bad habits that could be ruining our careers. The key to success in business is eliminating bad habits and developing good ones. English novelist Charles Reade, I think said it best when he wrote: “Sow a thought and you reap an act; Sow an act and you reap a habit; Sow a habit and you reap a character; Sow a character and you reap a destiny.”



The Psychology in Leadership

August 22, 2021

by Robert Stevenson

What are your employees thinking? What is bothering, annoying and/or frustrating them? What barriers are in their way that, in their opinion, are hindering them from performing their job properly, quickly, and efficiently?
