John over at Duct Tape Marketing writes about Scott Ginsberg - the man who has worn a name tag for about 7 years now. Scott is THEE foremost expert on approachability. I have not had a moment yet to listen to John's podcast(next on my growing list of to do's today), but I was fortunate to speak with Scott personally on a conference call this past week.
He posed a few questions that are great for everyone to ask themselves and I hope he does not mind me sharing them with you. Scott asked me the following:
1. What are your primary goals for 2007?
2. Do you have a plan on how to make the goals come about?
and this one is the WINNER, the one that makes you think long and hard...
3. If everyone you talked to took your advice to heart and followed it exactly as you advised them, what would the world be like?
I encourage everyone to read through those questions and think about your answers. Share them in your blog and TrackBack here or comment on them below. I thought I had a clear answer to these but as I vocalized and shared them with a respected "expert" it really helped me organize my thoughts quite a bit more.
PS - for those who have not read any of Scott's ebooks or books, order them immediately. The ebooks are fun and quick reads and you will immediately understand how his view on relationships and approachability can change your success rates in both life and business.
