Advanced management skills: Knowing when to stop

Simple, but not easy

There are some simple skills that are NOT easy to master.

Walking is one. It took you over a year to learn to walk. But you finally succeeded.

Tying your laces is another. Do you remember that? Presumably, you finally succeeded in that too.

But how about the skill of "Knowing when to stop"?

Now that is a tricky one!

Knowing when to stop is an advanced skill.

Most people have NOT learned how to stop at the right moment.

For example:

1. Most people do not know when to stop talking!

And it is the cause of many of their disasters. Have you ever been in an argument, lost your cool, and then said too much? You should have stopped talking five minutes ago. But you didn't stop, and you went on to say things that should not say.

Lesson one: You have gotta learn when to stop talking.

2. Most people do not know when to stop worrying

And it is the cause of many of their disasters. You need to go over your problems mentally, in order to solve them. But if you don't know when to stop thinking, then thinking becomes worrying.

Worry, stress and anxiousness create a loss of confidence in the future.

Lesson two: You have gotta learn when to stop thinking about it.

3. Many people do not know when to stop working

And it is the cause of many of their disasters It is important to work. Productivity is the purpose of life. (All living things must produce.) But it is important to know when to stop working, and rest. Rest is important because you must recuperate your powers. Replenish and restore. So that you might, once again, tomorrow morning, produce. Lesson three: You have gotta learn when to stop working.

4. Many people do not know when to stop resting

And it is the cause of many of their disasters. Recuperation and rest is important (see above). But you gotta know when to STOP resting and get back to work! Many people still think that resting is the purpose of life! (Poor souls). So, they count down the days to their retirement. Meanwhile, they strive to do as little productive work as they can get away with. At a certain point, resting becomes bone idle- laziness.

Nobody will respect you for your laziness; only for your production.

Lesson four: You have gotta learn when to stop resting.

5. Many people do not know when to stop eating and drinking

And it is the cause of many of their disasters. Eating good food and drinking fine wine is nice. But you gotta know when to stop! 'cause too much fine wine, will make you sick. Too much good food will make you fat. Already, there are too many sick people who are fat.

They did not learn the advanced principle of: "when to stop".

Lesson five: You have gotta learn when to stop consuming.

Conclusion

There are many things that are simple but not easy.

"Knowing when to stop" is one of them.

So, right now, make a mental note, and realise when it is time to stop!
