Living and working advice

We recently asked a few of our clients and consultants what single piece of advice they were given which stuck with them and they try to follow / or which has made them successful. Here are a few replies :

I have always been a firm believer that belief is what makes a difference to success and achievements :

If you think you can you will, and if you think you can not you will not,
although my family are true believers that there is no such thing as can not, it is just a question of thinking creatively or learning how to do something.

Many people said they lived by advice given about how people relate to others and also keeping an optimistic outlook in life:

Treat people how you wanted to be treated yourself

Its nice to be important, but its important to be nice!!

Be positive in outlook always, tomorrow will always be better than today.

And everything will be OK, no matter how bad it seems at the time…

Be yourself and do not try to be something you are not!

To dream of the person you wish to be is to waste the person you are

On a more work related front:

Given by manager: Always wait 24 hours before making a final decision.

Given to team: Time management – make a to do list, and then put everything that comes in during the day onto the list. That way you keep prioritising activities and do not just react.

Given by Manager : always treat clients like idiots (not in a patronising way) but to ensure you are being so clear in what you are writing/ telling them and
never to assume as it makes as ass out of u and me

Honesty is always best, although it may be difficult sometimes, it is not what you say but how you say it and being honest will always be appreciated.
