“We did it Before, We Can Do It Again”

You can protect and promote more through applied knowledgediscernmentand wisdom

We did it Before, We Can Do It Again” was a World War II song, aimed to remind Americans that they had beaten Germany in WWI before, and that the U.S. could do it again. The “greatest generation” – including Rosie the Riveter, that strong gal in that WWII poster – did just that.

That’s one way to look at history. But you can look at personal – or employment – history too.

On an individual basis, employers look at a person’s job or educational history before hiring. Why? 

If an employment candidate “did it before, they can do it again.” 

On that level, discerning owners and managers know that people can change, learn, and adapt. But certainly, past performance is one way to measure potential future performance.

Hold that thought, and apply it not to employees, but to organizations. Or groups. Think Manufactured Housing when you think, “they did it before, they can do it again.”

This week, the Daily Business News has our usual twenty plus new reports, because we also do one on Saturday and this thought-provoking recap for Sunday morning.

Look carefully at what has been done by certain groups or organizations before. Their history matters. Because if they did it before. they can do it again. 

Superficiality is the curse of the modern world.” – is a Matthew Kelly quote.  Kelly is active in both business and his church. Whatever your background, it is hard to listen to a talk of his for an hour, and not walk away impressed. He weaves tremendous energy, and business knowledge in with or driven by his faith.

But that quote – “Superficiality is the curse of the modern world.” – is powerfully insight for every forward looking professional. Agree with or disagree with Warren Buffett on his business practices or politics, but what you can learn from him is that the man reads a ton. Obviously, he thinks deep reading helps make him money, and/or reading helps him to protect his money.

If you read these MHProNews reports, that’s great, join the club of thousands who logon daily here. MHProNews –within a few months after it’s start in 2009 – became and remains the runway number 1 read in MHVille.
