    Hello everyone,


    In her speech, Christine Porath talks of the cost of rudeness to business and how respecting coworkers can be good for the business.


    A rude coworker doesn't only affect those they are rude towards, but also everyone seeing the behavior. Rudeness will bring down motivation, cuts back work efforts, causes lost work time, and can even lead to people quitting.


    Respect spreads in a similar manner, people get more focused, more engaged, and more likely to stay in the Company. Respect can be used to boost the performance of the whole organization, says Porath.


    Would you care to share an experience or two? Have you seen how rudeness, or respect, has affected your workplace at some point? Past or present? You can also share a story of someone you know.


    Yours with respect,

    Adam Peters


    Pushing your limits.... but how about crossing your limits? Have you ever crossed your own limits?

    I try to avoid it, but sometimes it just happens.


    What do you think about pushing limits?

    Hello everyone!


    What makes a good project to pick?


    2 out of 3 thinking has made it easier for me to pick the best business projects while advancing on my career.

    • Is it fun?
    • Do I gain valuable experience?
    • Does it pay well?

    A good project can be very fun and highly educational, while it doesn't pay well (or at all).

    A good project can pay very well and be fun, but it doesn't push you out of your comfort zone or teach you anything new.

    A good project can be very lucrative and educational, without giving much to enjoy while working.


    Do you agree with this 2 out of 3 thinking? Or do you need all of these (fun, pay, experience) to be present - is it even possible to have a perfect balance between these three?


    Good luck with all your business projects 2020!


    Yours,

    Every small step in the right direction gets you closer to your successful moment.

    What is your biggest success, private or business related, and how long did it take you to achieve it?

    If you stay in your comfort zone, you can't expect to achieve anything greater than what you've been doing? But what do you think, is it really that bad to settle for the ordinairy?


    Please share your thoughts with me!

    Hello everyone!


    Holiday season is here, and Christmas is a great time to do business and run highly successful sales & campaigns!


    Do you have any good traditions when purchasing gifts that helps you save both money and time? Or do you enjoy the holiday shopping each year to the fullest?


    My personal favorite gift each year is the gift of time I can share with others, and with myself.


    Happy Holidays,

    Adam Peters

    If your enemies attack, don’t resort to their level, that’s exactly what they’re hoping for. Forgive them! This confuses them, because it is something completely unexpected that they are not prepared for.


    Have you ever done this? Did it work out for you? Let us know.

    Hello everyone,


    I would like to discuss universal traits for hiring people. What are in your opinion or based on your experience the best reasons to hire someone? Without going to any occupational traits and know-hows, what would make you hire someone?


    Would you make a decision based on team skills, attitude, courage, personal chemistry or something else?


    Yours,

    Adam Peters


    Hello everyone,


    Fail Time is more than just a funny pun. Fail Time is what I call a scheduled time, an hour or two, or even a full day for example, when I decide to put all my effort into one single thing. During this Fail Time, I will throw away all my insecurities and just do whatever I decided to do, without any fear of failure.


    If you were to schedule yourself a Fail Time, what tasks would you pick? Singing outside the shower? Running around the city, door to door, to get a good job interview? New hobby? Selling something self-made? Gathering donations for a charity? Perhaps prepare for a marathon even?


    Yours,

    Adam Peters

    Some people think I am just lucky I got this job, but they do not realize that behind this success many years of work, trial and error, and failures are hidden. The harder I work, the more good ideas I get and chances I create for myself.


    Any comments from your side?

    Hello everyone,


    Have you heard the famous legend that if you keep learning and working with a topic for 10.000 hours, you would become a master?


    Do you have a topic you have studied and worked for the 10.000 hours? If not, what topic would you be interested in in order to become a true professional?


    Yours,

    Adam Peters

    In the beginning of my career I really was afraid of making mistakes. I wanted to show my boss I was a perfect employee. By now I know that mistakes are needed to be succesful; you learn from every mistake and it may take many failures before you reach success.


    What was your biggest mistake and what did you learn from it?

    Hello all,


    On the internet you find a lot of different descriptions and thought of what qualitites a good businessman should have?

    Some examples:

    • A good businessman treats his customers, employees, partners and vendors with respect, care and compassion.
    • A good businessman values the opinion of his employees, customers, partners and vendors.
    • A good businessman demonstrates integrity in all his business transactions.

    Do you have special qualities in mind a succesful businessman should have?


    Greetings,

    Hello everyone,


    You know how every successful business has a mission. Something that tells where they are heading and why. A true mission is born when it feels just right, and sometimes you have to work with it until all the pieces match.


    Do you have a Life’s Mission? What if you gave your life a mission? What values and goals would add spice to your journey?


    Yours,

    Hello everyone,


    True or false: Customer is always right? Do you know where this legendary claim comes from and is there any truth to it in your opinion?


    Can you remember any experiences or situations that prove the customer is always right, or debunks the claim?


    Yours,

    Hello everyone,


    If you were to start your very own business, would you enjoy working as part of a small 5-person team, as a solopreneur, or would you like to become a successful business tycoon like myself with employees, possibly in the hundreds?


    And what would be the main product, expertise or service you offer?


    Yours,

    Adam Peters
