Are you ready to be entre vied? Let's break free of the life we're told to live, create freedom and well by adding value to others live, challenge traditions, challenge authority and get onto ified. Hey, guys, this is Jeff on entre fied, the Siri's of five minutes of random thoughts. So, guys, I hope you're getting a lot of value from this. That's the goal, so I would get right to it cause I got a lot of stuff to go through today. One of the things I want to talk about today is changing your way of thinking on certain things. You know, it's not always easy to examine your way of thinking on things. Sometimes when you're talking to people, they may have better ideas, and sometimes it's awful tempting to get emotional and think, Oh, I've got a good idea on this or this is what they don't understand. But I have talked with certain people like that. It's so hard to talk with those type of people because they seem like they're always right Guys, I hope that's not me. I hope I could be pliable in teachable and and looking at it from the point of view of Do they have validity and what they're saying? And that's what I'm asking you right now. This is my point. First point. Do you have validity and how you're thinking? Just pride. Not just there you go. But ask yourself that question. When something like that comes up on my thinking about this right, is there a different way to see this? Do they have some validity and what they're saying? We're talking about just generally in life, being open and pliable, being usable, being teachable in those moments. Ask yourself, Is there something I just need to chill out a bit and accept the fact that they know something I don't know. They look at it a different way. Do they have a better point than I didn't? I'd like to add something else here. That's point number one. So that's kind of a long point, guys. But ask yourself, Am I being really being teachable in my being pliable? And I learned about being able to be teachable. I hope I feel like I'm not getting my point across here. Maybe it's just because I'm going on and on. Let me move on to the second point here. We've got to get to the point when we consider other people you know something, that they may be doing better. You know, we could learn from people like that, and that's a really good thing. Just to be able to say, you know, I don't know everything and what Somebody does something good. This is what I want to bring out God's. This is point number two. Tell him they've done something good. You know what? You might have a better idea. Tell him that when it's true, because that's about growing. It's about learning. And people appreciate that. You really want to get somebody's attention, do it in front of somebody that they respect. Everybody thinks they gotta be super competitive. You gotta be competitive with this person. This person's gotta be competitive with you. But sometimes we get into ego. You know, I've heard it said that ego is edging got out, so make sure that you're not doing that. So point number one, can you see things differently? Can you learn something from somebody else? Point number two. Can you get to the point where you praise of the people for the good things they do and just point out that, Hey, I think you got a great idea, possibly on this particular project. It's not just one area. You apply this to guys, but I think those are two good points. I hope that's added value to you. I'm trying to get under five minutes here, so I think I might be able to do it today. I hope that I can and I feel like I'm all the time over, so just look over me. I am trying to get it under five minutes, guys, so it's two good points. The next thing I'd like to tell you is sometimes we just need to keep things business. You know, a lot of lot of times where to deal with people. Did that have different personalities in a different way because people are different. But if you're struggling with a situation where you don't know how to deal with certain things, you know, keep it professional, keep it business short and concise. Straight to the point did with what you need to deal with, and you can develop the relationship later. Sometimes people respect results, and if you take that kind of attitude toward people. This is what I deliver results. You know you can develop. You can build on that. You don't always have to have a deep relationship. Sometimes you and it doesn't mean you don't like the person. It just means that if you keep things on the level that you're comfortable, the other stuff generally works out. Guys, I hope you've got something from this today. I feel like on some of them I get all over the place. But I try to keep things short, concise to straight to the point. Those are the three main things that I wanted to tell you about in this podcast. I'm still over. Looks like I'm over five minutes. But anyway, I hope you guys will forgive me. We'll see you next time.
