Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 21FEB11

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: business execution

An executive coaching client continually gets caught up in FEAR: false evidence (that) appears real.

This individual sees problems that don’t yet exist, sees parallels in situations that aren’t parallel at all, imagines it’s been months since a last contact from a prospect when it’s only been a few days or a week or 2—all of which fosters a negative outlook about future, desired outcomes.

What should one do in a situation where FEAR has taken hold? I recommend you ask the question my mentor, Alan Weiss, asks: “Where is the evidence?”

Usually, when we look for the evidence, we pretty quickly determine that there really isn’t any evidence at all—it’s just FEAR rearing its ugly head.

Don’t let FEAR keep you or your company from thriving.

Thought for the week:

“If you don’t have a competitive advantage, don’t compete.” – Jack Welch
