It’s Not Me, It’s You

No one sets out to do a terrible job. A mediocre job? Sure, for some people that’s an option.
It’s Not Me, It’s You

To succeed it’s about being excellent, right?

Not always.

Nowadays, there’s loads of literature and self-help about being the best, the greatest, the most successful, the most effective…

Positive messages are great, but these books are only as valuable as the willpower of the individual engaging with them.

It’s the reason why there aren’t more millionaires next door, and monks selling Ferraris.

Perhaps it’s time to simplify.

I’m not going to recommend reading a full length book on how to be the most superhuman and exceptional person on the planet. Let’s just go back to basics and focus on this six minute video instead.

Today, it’s about throwing toxic positivity out of the window, and talking about HOW TO BE TERRIBLE.

This might even be refreshing!

First off, here are a few quick and easy ways to be terrible:

  1. Be a control freak.
  2. Be unable to accept help.
  3. Be stuck in your ways.

This is by no means an exhaustive list… However, knowing how to be terrible means we can recognise it, and counteract it.

We’ve all heard Apple’s slogan “Think Different”. While this slogan isn’t the sole reason that Apple is successful, the point is that recognising alternatives, and being agile is a huge part of success.

The construction industry can learn a lot from the tech industry. All too often, the construction industry is caught in the old ways of doing things.

We need to:

  1. Release control to the right people.
  2. Accept help.
  3. Embrace change.

No man, or woman, is an island and we can’t do everything.
