Wise words on using social tools in the enterprise

The Obvious?

The best way to control people is to encourage them to be mischievous. Then
they will be in control in its wider sense. To give your sheep or cow a large, spacious meadow is the way to control him. So it
is with people: first let them do what they want, and watch them. This is the best policy. To ignore them is not good; that is
the worst policy. The second worst is trying to control them. The best one is to watch them, just to watch them, without
trying to control them.

That control reduces stress, while the people who are avoiding accountability are having the stress of always doing what others are telling them to do.

YOU DETERMINE, YOU DECIDE

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

People are feeling that they have less control over their time these days…feeling overwhelmed with everything they have to do.

FEELING OF BEING IN CONTROL

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful
