Play time!

Another great quote from Mindset: The New Psychology of Success (see the first one here):

Penelope assumed that somewhere out there was someone who was already perfect. Relationship expert Daniel Wile says that choosing a partner is choosing a set of problems. There are no problem-free candidates. The trick is to acknowledge each other’s limitations, and build from there.

Are there any perfect teammates? Perfect workers? Perfect bosses?

Probably not.

The question is: what are you going to do about it? Wish they were perfect or put an effort and start actually working on using the strengths of the individuals to overcome their “limitations”.

We have a choice every day.

As I mention in my e-book, In Randy Pausch ‘s last lecture he said: “We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand“.

When are you going to stop complaining and start playing?

    Good observation Elad. Reminded me of the reading “Decisions and Implementation” from the Jeffrey Pfeffer book “Managing with Power”, where he says that “we almost invariably spent more time living with the consequences of our decision than we do in making them.” Hence “Rather than spending inordinate amounts of time and effort in the decision making process, it would seem at least as useful to spent time implementing decisions and dealing with their ramifications.”

    Thanks Arun. I love that Pfeffer quote. I was in one our readings for the MBA as well. It really does relate to what I wrote. Now with you comment this post is even better!
    Thanks!

    When some one searches for his necessary thing, therefore he/she needs
    to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over
    here.
