Sowing for Success

Some people look for points of disagreement so they can sow seeds of discord, discontent and doubt. Be the exception and do the opposite. Look for points, points not personalities or people, but points of agreement.
 
The biggest hindrance in getting things done is giving in to the temptation to make arguments against the person, rather than the point. Arguing with a person rather than arguing the point.
 
Arguing the point without personal attack is a lost art and leaders who learn to master and remaster this art will be the leaders who make things happen for those they represent.
 
Such leaders will develop a reputation of making the corn pop! And, if a director or manager, one known for how to work well with people and can get things done - which will bode well for your career.
 
Citizens are looking for leaders who know how to sow seeds of agreement rather than those of perpetual disagreement to move initiatives forward.
 
Right now too many are at a standoff, are standoffish or argumentative. None of these will make an impact or bring about substantial change.
 
Sow seeds of agreement when possible and when not, disagree without ripping apart the other person. You will get more done and in the long run, you will be glad you took such a mature approach.
 
We indeed reap what we sow. For good and for bad. Sow for success!
