Welcome

Welcome to ProcessImprovement.Me.  Each week we will post between one and three blog posts on change, how to improve at something in life or business, or learning something new.  Please join us and participate in the comments.  We would really like to hear your thoughts.  You cannot post a comment on the home page (just the way they set up the site.) All the other pages do afford the ability to post comments. We recommend you use the Blog Page for this.

Please join us, have fun, and interact with others in the same kindness that you would like others to interact with you.

Just an Idea

Just an Idea

Remember, Mr. Newman, who never thought he had to worry?  Is that the same for you?  This year seems to be stretching our boundaries a little for all of us. 

If you find yourself a little off balance with all that has gone on lately, I need to assure everyone that you are not alone.  Sometimes it is excellent to safely get together and talk about what worries us and how we can deal with all the different things coming our way.

If you would be interested in a meeting on Zoom with others who are thinking the same way, please click the like button.  It helps me to know that the need is there.  If there is a need, we can work on the answers together.

Thanks,

Tired

Are you tired of those around you telling you you are wrong?  Especially when most of them do not have a clue about what they are saying? 

I have been there and suffered through that.  In a few weeks, I will have some help and some thoughts for you.  Right now, I am trying to see if I am in the right areas.  If I am, please click the like button.  I am not looking for any names or addresses right now, only how people feel.

Thank you for your time looking at this and liking.

Friday Thoughts

I know movies are only make-believe, especially the ones with spacecraft and other worlds, or dragons and magic. And I know that through this form of imagination, new products such as cell phones, emerge and new technologies are born into the world.

There is a wonderful idea from the Harry Potter movies that I wish someone would invent. A place to store memories when you need to clear your head and pay attention to what happens in front of you. Imagine how much better our concentration could be. Think about the ability to work much faster and better without the clutter of memories getting in the way.

Is there a theory out there? I am sure someone must be working on that. Think of how much more time and capacity we would have to make good things happen. How much time would be saved not having to get off and back on the right track?

If we could only concentrate on what is in front of us, does this mean that we could work faster? If we now spend 50% of our time thinking non-productive thoughts, does that mean I could do twice as much? We fine-tune computer processors to speed them up and place new tools within. Can we find ways to do so with our processors in our heads?

I guess these are just thoughts for Friday. I wonder if the telephone was first thought of as a Friday thought. I wonder how many Friday thoughts make it to the light of day.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.

Being a Professional

You are a professional at whatever you do to earn a living. It is the thing you get paid to accomplish. You are proud of your work and strive to be the best you can be. Another thing you need to do; be kind.

It is easy to get an idea that everything revolves around you. Hint: it does not. At any given time, a billion things are going on around the world, and no matter how important we think we are, in the larger scheme of things, we are each a tiny part of a significant puzzle.

Throughout your busy day, take time. Take time to know the name of who takes out your garbage and how their family is. Take the time to let people who help you see that they are appreciated and essential to you. Do you want to be vacuuming your room floor at work? Or take out your garbage?

When you care for all those who help you, imagine the customer service that you are then providing to your customers. One person always works to support another. And it will show in you for everyone you meet.

To be the best that you can be is more than just nuts and bolts and understanding cause and effect. In getting to the point where you are the best you can be, you bring an entire team with you. You bring all those who support you.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
