What I learned from this Chapter is to do whatever it takes to be a master at everything that we teach here at Mentoring For Free over time, because people are looking for the Specialist and want nothing to do with a generalist. That is acquiring specialized knowledge and using it! Because knowledge on ice is worse than courage under fire. Bob Shoaf always emphasizes that we should test things out an find our questions, rather than waiting for assistance from a mentor. That is the philosophy here at Mentoring For Free. Learning how to think NOT what to think.
And teaching it to others. Because we all will be hitting brick walls. Bob Shoaf explained on his training call to ask ourselves the question "what if?" That is asking yourself what would you do in this situation and in that situation.
Tuula Rands explains that you must change your activity if you aren't getting results. Thats where most people fail when they fail to create new plans to take the place the plans that fail. Samuel Insuill lost a fortune over 100 million dollars due to that reason. That example should be a wake up call! And Murphys Law says nothing is so bad that it can't get worse. Lets stop the insanity because the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.
