HTM 074 – Go Figure, It’s Another Nail – How To Matter

June 18th, 2016 by Gary Crow

In episode 74 of How To Matter, I focus on managing people and on our expectations about what they do, how they do it and the outcomes they achieve. To what extent do we impose our views and perspectives on the three key elements: what they do, how they do it and the outcomes they achieve. The article below is the handout for the episode and offers one perspective on the topic.

“Increasingly in recent times we have come first to identify the remedy that is most agreeable, most convenient, most in accord with major pecuniary or political interest, the one that reflects our available faculty for action; then we move from the remedy so available or desired back to a cause to which that remedy is relevant.” — John Kenneth Galbraith

There is always more than one way to do things or to think about things. Although this is usually obvious, occasionally it isn’t. At times, it appears that there is only one explanation, one possible interpretation, one right action, one correct understanding. That is when you need to be most alert. Obvious and right aren’t necessarily the same. When there seems to be only one right way to think about or to understand anything, stop, reconsider, and give yourself a chance. The rule is to ponder the situation until at least one alternative “right” scenario comes to mind. Most always, there will be one if you are patient and persistent, and usually more than one.
