It has been a busy few weeks for me. A lot of changes happening in my life and lot of busyness. Haven't studied like I should have been and haven't done a lot of things I should be doing. Time to get back on track.
I have re-enforced that people don't listen and don't follow up on what they say they will do. (Myself as well at times....) I'm working on that from my standpoint, but I wish others would work on it as well.
I have found that coaching others on process or direction doesn't always (seldom it seems) pay off the first time. They go off on their own, doing it their way, and then they often crash and have to start over, if they start over with the way they were coached by someone that has "been there, done that", they tend to get it right the second time. Why can't people learn from other peoples mistakes? Why do they want to learn of them their own? Yes, a person needs to make their own mistakes as well, but if it is a major project (such as getting your company funded), why not follow the "expert"?
