===> Effectiveness vs. efficiency
Do you know the important difference between efficiency and effectiveness?
BTW: most people do NOT! Do you??
Efficiency = doing things right
Effectiveness = doing the RIGHT things.
What does that mean?
Well, lets have a look.............
You clean your house /apartment by yourself and you do that thoroughly and
THAT is efficiency = you are doing things right.
You you are a hard working man / woman - perhaps a business owner -
AND you make success eg you have got some money.
You make the decision: the house-cleaning will be delegated.
THAT is effectiveness = you are doing the RIGHT things
eg you take care of your biz = you make money = you can delegate certain
tasks and concentrate of your MAIN-task: your business :-)
You see: to behave in an effective way - thats a strategical question, so go

response from YOUR email messages?
1. Target your message.
Response always goes up when you send your message to someone who is

prospects can act on IMPULSE and simply click your
Keep in mind that 60% of people don't type. Many
more don't type very well or don't like to type. You
can increase response by putting mailto: before your
address and writing it:

send the message. "Send Me Info" automatically
shows up as the subject in their email message.

you should start your online business
"If nobody knows what the future will hold, your vision of how to navigate
it is as good as anyone's. The future may well belong to you."
Rita Gunther McGrath and Ian MacMillan

Are You the Entrepreneurial Type?
Deciding If Entrepreneurship and Running A Small Business Is For You
People often want to know if they are suited to becoming an entrepreneur.
"Do I have what it takes to succeed in business?" they ask.
As the job outlook remains tenuous for those looking to earn more than
minimum wage, more people are eyeing the American Dream of entrepreneurship.
But the fact is, business ownership isn't for everyone. There are a number
of characteristics that have been identified as prerequisites for success as
a business owner. Here are some questions you should ask yourself before you
take the plunge into business, courtesy of the U.S. Small Business
Are you a good leader? Even at the outset, you won't be working in a vacuum.
Whether it's employees, suppliers, your banker or potential customers,
you'll need to get other people to do what you want them to do.
Can you make quick, effective decisions? Do you look to others for answers
or do you find the answers for yourself? Once you're a business owner,
you'll have to fend for yourself; there may be no one there to pick you up
and dust you off, much less tell you what to do.
Do you routinely set goals? You must know exactly where your business is
going as well as how and when you'll get there. And the only way that will
happen is if you develop-- and adhere to -- a specific plan.
Can you juggle many things at once? The business world is picking up the
pace every day, and if you're in charge, you'll have to keep a finger in
every pie and be on top of every situation at any given moment.
How's your health? Owning a business is like being the quarterback of a
football team, but with one bug exception; there's no second string. The
work will be relentless -- it's won't go away while you nurse a cold.
Do you really have time? Running a successful business is a full-time,
all-the-time, job. No matter how much time you think it will take, it will
always take more.
How's your risk tolerance? Particularly if you'll be moonlighting -- holding
down a day job you plan to quit when your new business gets up and
running -- you should know there never will be a "right" time to make that
Is your family supportive? Will your spouse be content to spend weekends
alone, and will he or she be willing to handle all the household chores? Can
your kids survive Little League without your voice in the cheering section?
More to the point, will your family members be willing to lend a hand when
Do you have enough money? One of the most common reasons for the failure of
new business start-ups is that the owner failed to realize how much money it
takes -- and how fast the money you do have will disappear in the early
months. Have you accounted for all the necessary expenses -- from big ones
like advertising to the little ones like postage stamps? If you suddenly
need a few hundred dollars, can you put your hands on it within 24 hours?
If the answer to any of these questions if no, it may be wise to do a
priority check -- and rethink your decision to jump into the business

Definition by von Glasersfeld:
"Radical Constructivism - 'What is radical constructivism? It is an
unconventional approach to the problem of knowledge and knowing.
It starts from the assumption that knowledge, no matter how it is defined, is in the
heads of persons, and that the thinking subject has no alternative but to
construct what he or she knows on the basis of his or her own experience.
What we make of experience constitutes the only world we consciously live
in. It can be sorted into many kinds, such as things, self, others, and so
on. But all kinds of experience are essentially subjective, and though I may
find reasons to believe that my experience may not be unlike yours, I have
no way of knowing that it is the same. The experience and interpretation of
language are no exception."

An old TAOISM story from China for YOU
"Who knows what it is good for"
An old farmer lives with his son. On their small farm, they
have just one horse. One day, the horse escapes and disappears into the
mountains. All the neighbours say, "Oh, how terrible for you", and the old
farmer just shrugs and says,
"Who knows what it is good for"
The next day, the horse returns to the farm - with a dozen wild horses
following it. All the neighbours say, "Oh, how wonderful for you!", and the
old farmer just shrugs and says,
"Who knows what it is good for"
A day later again, the son is attempting to break-in one of the wild horses
and is thrown off. His leg is badly broken in the fall. All the neighbours
say, "Oh, how terrible for you", and the old farmer shrugs and says,
"Who knows what it is good for"
Then the next day some men from the Army come to town to take away all the
fit and healthy young men. They are being forced to fight in a gruesome war
in a far-off country. The farmer's son, his leg badly broken, cannot go
All the neighbours say "Oh, how wonderful for you!" , and the old farmer
shrugs and says,
"Who knows what it is good for"
....and the cycle just continues again and again
This is a great strory to remember when you suffer a setback or heartbreak
of any sort; things can turn on a telephone call, a kind word from somebody,
or even just a good night's sleep. You might think you've had some really
bad things happen to you lately; well, maybe, maybe not:
"Who knows what it is good for!"
It depends on how you look at it and what happens next.
Sometimes we can never even imagine in our wildest dreams what will happen
Thats what makes life such an exciting journey!
this story (BTW: my favorite story!) is a very good example to show the way of thinking of the so called radical constructivism, although this story is an ancient one:
while one person takes the view that THIS is bad, another person tells you that THIS is good! All depends on YOUR point of view, YOUR standpoint :-)
Well, which advantages + which benefits will the radical constructivism give you?
THREE great advantages and benefits:
1. freedom - in your brain, your heart, your thoughts and your ACTIONS - wow :-)
2. tolerance: IF there are many good reasons to take a certain view, and IF the several views are equivalent, equally good, equally significant - THEN there is no need for IN-tolerance, struggling, arguing and so on.........
3. responsibility: your are responsible for YOUR thoughts, YOUR emotions and YOUR actions as well as every other person is.
Milton Erickson (1901 - 1980), a US physician, is considered as one of the greatest
communicators of all times and HE is the creator of the MODERN art of hypnotherapy!
The pioneering efforts of Milton H. Erickson M.D. have provided
a foundation for the study of self-hypnosis and hypnosis.
An American psychologist and psychiatrist,
Erickson is considered to be the father of modern hypnosis.
He practiced hypnosis to optimize healing and change in his patients.
Erickson's view is that the psyche, mind and brain are directly integrated
in adjusting body processes in health and illness.
Erickson recognized the importance of a person's * inner resources *
for coping with physical and emotional problems.
He then UTILIZED these resources to facilitate the healing process and
the way of problem solving.
The Milton H. Erickson Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to promoting and
advancing the contributions made to the health sciences by the late Milton
H. Erickson, M.D. through training mental health professionals and health
professions world wide.

===> Franklin, Benjamin
What would Ben Franklin think of the "Ben Franklin Close"?
By Jeffrey Gitomer
The Benjamin Franklin Close (also known as "The Balance Sheet Close") is one
of the classic old time sales tactics used to close a sale. Never heard of
it? Shame on you -- not enough sales training.
The scenario is this: You've made your presentation, but the prospect is on
the fence, and won't make up his or her mind. You've tried everything, but
can't get them to budge.
Then you say, "You know Benjamin Franklin was one of our wisest citizens,
wouldn't you agree, Mr. Johnson?" (Get prospect's agreement) "Whenever he
was faced with a decision -- and he had some pretty big ones back then -- he
would take a plain piece of paper, draw a line down the middle and put a
plus (+) on one half, and a minus (-) on the other."
"In his genius he discovered that by listing all the positive elements on
the plus side of the paper, and the negative things on the minus side, the
decision would become obvious -- pretty sound concept, agreed?" (Get
"Let me show you how it works. Since you're having a tough time deciding,
lets list the benefits -- some of the reasons you may want to purchase. Then
we'll list the negatives. Fair enough?" (Get prospect's agreement)
Now you list every good thing about your product or service. Get the
prospect to say most of them. What the prospect says will be the main points
of interest to him. Take your time to develop a complete list. THEN YOU
SAY -- OK, let's list the negatives, and hand the pen to the prospect and
push the list towards him. Don't say a word. Usually the prospect can only
think of responses having to do with price or affordability.
In theory this sounds like a good way to close a sale.
The big problem with the Benjamin Franklin Close -- it's old world selling
that not only doesn't work, it annoys the buyer. Try that close on someone
who has ever taken a sales course, and it's an insult.
The reality of the sale is -- the prospect has already made up his mind --
he's just not telling you.
So should you just forget it and never use the Ben Franklin Close. Heck
no -- just use the Ben Franklin principle in a different way. Do what Ben
would have done -- figure out a new way and a better way, and use it.
Here's a powerful new way to re-use this classic close. Use it on
yourself -- before you make the sales call. Use it as a preparation tool.
Use it as a strategizing device. Use it to get ready to make a big sale. Get
a plain piece of paper (or your laptop), and draw a line down the middle of
on the plus side...
* List the prospect's main needs.
* List the questions you want to ask.
* List the benefits and main points you want to be sure to cover.
* List one or two personal things in common to discuss.
* List the decision makers.
* List why you believe they will buy.
on the minus side...
* List the reasons why the prospect may not buy -- and your responses.
* List the obstacles you may have to overcome.
Now you're ready to make the sale, and Ben helped you.
If you use the Ben Franklin Close on yourself, before you go in to make the
sale, then you can ask the buyer intelligent closing questions. For example,
questions that might lead with the phrases -- What are the major
obstacles...or, What would prevent you from..., or, Is there any reason not
to proceed with...?
That's a Ben Franklin close that Ben would be proud of -- the one you
prepare for yourself. You close yourself before you make the sale. Wow!
Try this new version of an old classic. Ben would be proud of you. So would
I think it was Franklin who said, "A close in time saves nine - objections,"
but history has distorted it for the people who knit. Pity.

Not at all, grin.....
Well, its important to understand the LAWS, that make the world - and the
business world (!) go round.
Of course, this is NOT written for you!
Of course (!) YOU are (!) applying (!) the Golden Rule (!) always (!),
But perhaps you do know lets say two, three or maybe four people who are NOT.
In THIS case you can send these people to this passage...... grin, grin, grin....
OK, in ALL earnest now that is possible
The Golden Rule
The Golden Rule or the ethic of reciprocity is found in the scriptures of
nearly EVERY religion. It is often regarded as the most concise and general
principle of ethics. It is a condensation in one principle of all longer
lists of ordinances such as the Decalogue.
There are several wordings:
"Treat others as YOU want to be treated."
Golden Rule in the New Testament
In short: Matthew 7:12
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this
sums up the Law and the Prophets."
In the whole CONTEXT:
1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge
others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be
measured to you.
3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no
attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother,
'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank
in your own eye?
5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will
see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
12So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for
this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
"Try your best to treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself, and
you will find that this is the shortest way to benevolence."
Confucianism. Mencius VII.A.4
Tzu-kung asked, 'Is there a single word which can be a guide to conduct
throughout one's life?' The Master said, 'It is perhaps the word shu. Do not
impose on others what you yourself do not desire.'
What is the Golden Rule all about?
The golden rule is endorsed by all the great world religions; Jesus, Hillel,
and Confucius used it to summarize their ethical teachings. And for many
centuries the idea has been influential among people of very diverse
cultures. These facts suggest that the golden rule may be an important moral
Let's consider an example of how the rule is used.
President Kennedy in 1963 appealed to the golden rule in an anti-segregation
speech at the time of the first black enrollment at the University of Alabama.
Kennedy asked whites to
consider what it would be like to be treated as second class citizens
because of skin color. Whites were to imagine themselves being black - and
being told that they couldn't vote, or go to the best public schools, or eat
at most public restaurants, or sit in the front of the bus.
Would whites be content to be treated that way? He was sure that they
wouldn't - and yet this is how they treated others.
He said the "heart of the question is ...whether we are going to treat our
fellow Americans as we want to be treated."
The golden rule is best interpreted as saying:
"Treat others only in ways that you're willing to be treated in the same
To apply it,
you'd imagine yourself in the exact place of the other person on the
receiving end of the action. If you act in a given way toward another, and
yet are unwilling to be treated that way in the same circumstances, then you
violate the rule.
To apply the golden rule adequately,
we need knowledge and imagination. We need to know what effect our
actions have on the lives of others. And we need to be able to imagine
ourselves, vividly and accurately, in the other person's place on the
receiving end of the action. With knowledge, imagination, and
the golden rule, we can progress far in our moral thinking.
The golden rule is best seen as a consistency principle. It doesn't replace
regular moral norms. It isn't an infallible guide on which actions are right
or wrong; it doesn't give all the answers. It only prescribes consistency -
that we not have our actions (toward another) be out of harmony with our
desires (toward a reversed situation action). It tests our moral coherence.
If we violate the golden rule, then we're violating the spirit of fairness
and concern that lie at the heart of morality.
The golden rule, with roots in a wide range of world cultures, is well
suited to be a STANDARD to which different cultures could appeal in
resolving conflicts. As the world becomes more and more a single interacting
global community, the need for such a common standard is becoming more

that it was as big as a lake. The bowl was filled with a nutritious stew.
All the way around the sides of this bowl were people. Emaciated, starving,
miserable people. These people had spoons to eat the stew with, and the
spoons were long enough to reach the stew (about 12 feet).
The trouble was,
while they could scoop up the stew into the spoon, they could not get it
into their mouths because the spoons were too long. So here were all these
pathetic people, suffering and moaning in agony, constantly trying to eat
the food that was abundantly in front of them - all in vain.
Next, the angels took the man to heaven.
To his surprise, he saw the same scene! There it was, a giant lake-like bowl of the same stew, surrounded by people with 12 foot long spoons. Yet something was different here - all these people were smiling, happy, and healthy looking!
"Why? What is the difference here that these people are happy and well
fed?", the man said to the angels.
They replied, "Have you not eyes to see?". The man looked more carefully,
and observed that one person would scoop up the stew, and bring it to the
mouth of another. Then someone else would scoop up stew and feed it to the
The angels smiled and said, "Here the people feed each other. Here are the
people that learned the way of Love."
The above story uses a striking allegorical fantasy to clearly illustrate a
fundamental difference between a world of people who are looking out for
themselves first, and a world of people who make caring for others their
first priority. That's what the Golden Rule is all about. The story
exemplifies living by the Golden Rule, or not living by it, in a nutshell.

Ah, you want even MORE about that topic? There is a book out there with
exactly THIS title: Golden Rule Management: Give Respect, Get Results
by Stephen J. Holoviak
With a simple, one-sit reading, managers learn how to boost productivity
without the frustration of "selling" upper management on any expensive
programs, training, seminars, or equipment. Success stories from the
author's work fill this book, bringing to life the many ways that Golden
Rule management can be successfully used.
Here is a review: Dana from Little Rock Arkansas
This book is well written with many of the concepts being adapted from the
management theories found in management texts. The difference is that they
are outlined and written in an easy to understand format. Specific
suggestions and steps are included in each chapter. Examples of real life
implementation of these principles by managers and organizations are also
included and make the theories seem achievable. The results are increased
employee satisfaction, employee empowerment, greater productivity and a
realization that all employees are an important asset to any organization.
