The ten commandments of better management skills

Tradition holds that Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the revealed truth from God. Moses was able then to tell us, exactly, how we should act, if we wish to gain grace and favour with GOD (Exodus 20)

But now, we live in more uncertain times and it is rare that we are in receipt of such definite advice from THE BIG GUY UPSTAIRS!

Luckily, we were endowed with a rational faculty which allows us to figure things out for ourselves.

Consequently, I would like to offer you, NOT the Ten Commandments, but rather, ten suggestions to get the best from your team and gain the grace and favour of your paymasters (the customers).

Here they are: The ten suggestions as revealed to us by means of deep thought and close observation.

  1. Thou shalt have a clear worthwhile and inspiring goal.
    Failure to have a goal will cause the deadly sin of drifting.
  2. Thou shalt sit down and create meticulous written plans for the achievement of the goals set at point 1.
    Failure to write plans causes the deadly sin of winging it.
  3. Thou shalt put forth immediate, persistent and determined effort in translating the plan into physical action.
    Failure to do so will cause you to commit the deadly sin of procrastination.
  4. Thou shalt be watchful of the results that your current actions are creating to see to where your plan and actions are not working.
    Failure to do so will cause you to commit the deadly sin of complacency.
  5. Thou shalt analyse the areas that are not working and devise effective means of correcting your errors.
    Failure to do so will cause you to commit the deadly sin of stubbornness.
  6. Thou shalt modify your plans continually in the light of new information, as your situation changes.
    Failure to do so will cause you to commit the sin of becoming obsolete (like the dodo).
  7. Thou shalt maintain a positive mental attitude based upon the most optimistic but justifiable assessment of your future.
    Failure to do so will cause you to commit the deadly sin of pessimism.
  8. Thou shalt treat each other person as if each one, were vitally important to your future success.
    Failure to do so will cause you to commit the sin of creating unnecessary conflicts.
  9. Thou shalt balance work and rest, work six rest one.
    Failure to Work six and ONLY rest ONE, will cause you to commit the sin of laziness.
  10. Thou shalt be happy, no matter what happens, and work with whatever nature hands you.

Failure to do so will cause you to commit the sin of ingratitude for all the bounties of living that come to you for free.

  • Sunny days, walks in the rain,
  • Sun bathing, Snowmen,
  • Sleeping, exercising,

Memorise and practice this list and you will find grace and favour with those around you.
