Directors Chair “Motivation as an equation”

Well here we are again for another monthly dose of inspiration from the Director’s Chair.

Firstly, It is important to realise that you reap what you sow, therefore it is important to always offer your best side and give it everything you’ve got. “ In business” is a difficult place to be, especially right now, but is there anyone that doesn’t have it difficult right now? We all have problems it’s just the size and scale that differs. So don’t feel sorry for yourself, roll up your sleeves and demonstrate good leadership and positivity, you will get your just desserts.

Positivity breeds positivity and attitude is reflective. Leadership isn’t about outshining everyone else at everything, it’s about being there to experience it and guiding others forward. Those who leap ahead often walk alone and those who constantly “push” will only get as far as the door that you have to “pull”!

“The Boffins” here at Style-Arrival Ltd obviously haven’t been busy enough this week, as the target with blobs of chewed paper splattered on the wall tell me, so their contribution this month is about effort. They wouldn’t be Boffins if they didn’t think this could be put into an equation and this is what they came up with:

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants more than 100%. How about achieving 103% or even 138%? Here’s a little maths that might prove helpful.

If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z are represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
then:
H A R D W O R K
8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98%
K N O W L E D G E
11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96%

but:
A T T I T U D E
1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100%
B U L L S H * T
2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%

And:

WORKSMART = 138%

That is very interesting but what can we draw from this?

Hard work & Knowledge will only get you so far. Don’t work hard, work smart and never forget to include a bit of bully!!

 

Incidentally “Lazy Boffins” is 135% !!
