Today’s post is going to be short. Today has been an overdose of problems to be resolved.
Some problems were with vendors to get a better price point, some with the internal teams and some with customers.
I have observed that while I can handle customer and marketing related problems quite well, I am generally not very good at interacting with vendors and negotiating contracts. I have a feeling when dealing with vendors I tend to get a little soft and don’t keep all the commercials in control, so I have to put an amazing amount of effort to even go through a small transaction.
On the other hand when I am dealing with customers or dealing with marketing related challenges with the team I am more alert and tend to be more creative.
Dan Sullivan has this concept of Unique Ability that he talks about a lot. As per him when you operate in your unique ability not only are you more energised to do things, you are also more creative and get less tired.
On the other hand when you are doing things where you don’t have the necessary ability, you tend to have to spend more time and energy. His view is that you should have people around you who complement you on your unique ability so that the areas where they have a unique ability can cover the areas where you are weak. This way every one enjoys all the time because they only do the work which suits their Unique Ability.
What’s your view. Will love to hear your comments
Till next time
