If You Fail to Plan, You Plan to Fail!

planning-to-succeed-natural-laws-of-management-arte-marenPlanning is a very important and easily learned technology. It has often been said that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. So true. But a real plan (and I define a good plan as one that gets done,) is not a list of to-do items. It is the creation of your future.

“THE SUCCESS OF ANY EVENT IS DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO THE TIMELY PREPARATION.”1

Excerpt from my book The Natural Laws of Management: The Admin Scale, Chapter 11, PREPARATION, Page 51.

Goals Are a Luxury Earned Through Production

Excerpt from The Natural Laws of Management: The Admin Scale, Chapter 4, VALUABLE FINAL PRODUCTS, Page 17

“While goals are vital, it is so much harder (and less efficient) to judge effectiveness by a person’s verbalized or even written goals than by what that person actually produces. One doesn’t often hear, “Boy, he sure can turn out a good goal.” In fact, too often goals are used as a substitute or excuse for production. Something has to come out the end of the conveyor belt of production and it shouldn’t be good intentions alone.

“Successful people do have very pro-survival goals and purposes. You can see the products of such people around you. But if good intentions actually exist, then they should manifest as valuable final products.”

How Does Selling Relate to Exchange?

Although my book, The Natural Laws of Management, is all about management alignment technology, I have provided quite a bit of information on the subject of sales (since I am celebrating my 50th year since my first sales experience and have been selling ever since).

This excerpt is the start of the viewpoint that selling has gotten a bad reputation due to the fact that it is not observed or perceived, even by the salesperson, as a win-win affair. And it is. And the sale is made, to the degree that it is. (Those who go “out-exchange” with their customer, soon no longer are in the sales industry as it becomes less and less “fun” (Yes, providing a needed item or service is FUN,) and more laborious (can I hear “Death of a Salesman” anyone?)

“Selling has a bad reputation. It’s come to mean, in some cases, “forcing something on someone that they don’t want and can’t afford.” That’s not selling. Selling has been a major force in the creation of American society. It’s been a vital link between the producer and the consumer. And the derivation of the word “sell” comes from an old English word sellen, which means “to get, deliver.” It’s the ability to place your product into the hands of the consumer on a rapid basis.

Chapter 2, Natural Law: About Standard Administration

adminstrative-skill-standard-administration-arte-maren-natural-laws-of-management

Standard administration is a collection of truths.  An excellent working definition for truth is “that which works.  And that which works most broadly to that which it is applied.”7

If what you are using is not working, it is relatively untrue.  Policies and procedures are the basic truths or guiding principles.  Company and personal stability depends upon having such written “laws” available and known to all concerned.

The continuance of an organization and its leaders can be said to be entirely dependent upon the skill, training and integrity of those who handle the administrative lines, details and contacts of the group.

“THE BEST GUARANTEE OF STABILITY IS ADMINISTRATIVE SKILL.”8
