By: Howard Lewinter Monday February 27, 2017 comments Tags: Howard Lewinter, business tip, business success

Business is a mixture of so many things happening in your business day all at the same time. As a successful business person you have to wade through many, many things simultaneously. Some would refer to it as multi-tasking, but its much more than that. Theres What you want to have happen in your business day What will happen What can happen What you and your co-workers can do.

You go to the office or to work and consider yourself to be a business person. Whatever your current occupation is gives you an additional company title. What tends to be forgotten about is that you are a human being. You have a life outside of the office and work. Yet you choose to live a majority of your productive hours each week working. When working, your goal is to do a good job even more than just a good job. Always, to be successful at what you do. Yet because you are human, youre also to some degree or another a creature of habit. All of us are. For example, you get up in the morning at a certain time every work day and do the same things to prepare to go off to work. You arrive at work and behave in similar ways each business day. In the process of these daily... Read More

By: Howard Lewinter Wednesday April 20, 2016 comments Tags: Howard Lewinter, business tip, business success, business failure

There is something that all very successful business people have in common: They failed at something. They failed at a business, they may have failed at several businesses. They may have failed with a marketing plan or make a mistake in the production of a product. The business landscape is littered with failures. The difference is these business people may be failing but they are not failures. Theres a big difference. These are business people who are willing to try something. Theyre willing to take calculated risks. Theyre willing to absolutely understand exactly who they are as business people and what they need to do for more success. Theyre willing to step out and try something that will add to their business. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt work. When... Read More

Business Success Means Living In The Now, Not In The Past by Howard Lewinter

By: Howard Lewinter Monday June 29, 2015 comments Tags: Howard Lewinter, business tip, business success

No matter the business subject, there are always multiple ways to view it. As the saying goes: There are always two sides to the coin or two sides to the story. Theres the classic Joni Mitchell song, Both Sides Now, which explores looking at clouds and life from both sides. The key to success is to know and understand business. To be a success in business requires looking at business from both sides in fact, from all sides. No illusions. To do that you need to live each business day fully in the now, in the present, not in the past. But lets look at it from both sides. The Past Know what was in the past. Be aware of it. Understand what the mistakes were. If we dont understand our business mistakes then we are going to repeat the same mistakes over... Read More

Is A Positive Attitude Always Best For Business?

Its 2015!Now what? Ask yourself this question: What do you want out of this year? Yes, from a personal viewpoint. But more importantly, from a business perspective. No matter what you may list as your answers I am certain you want 1) your company to be profitable so you can make more money, 2) to be successful at what you do, 3) to stand out from everyone else in order to achieve the other two. Have you ever noticed how most people, including business people, often just follow the herd? They do what other people do. If its the latest mobile phone, they have to have it. If its the latest fashion, they have to have it. If a movie is receiving a lot of buzz, they have to see it. People want to follow what everyone else is doing. Yet to attain your business goals means standing out... Read More

Work Backwards For Business Success by Howard Lewinter Youve probably heard the phrase play it forward or pay it forward. In fact, there was a popular movie a number of years ago entitled, Pay It Forward, that perhaps youve seen. The concept is that when something good or nice happens to you, you then do similar and do something good or nice for someone else. Then that individual does something nice for another individual and the concept goes, hopefully, on and on with the goal of making this world a better place to live and work in. The concept is certainly a wonderful, timeless idea that we definitely need in our world today, both locally and globally. Its not just about doing one good thing for one person. Its about doing good and being nice to everyone you meet in your day,... Read More

Let Your Imagination Lead You To More Business Success by Howard Lewinter

Let Your Imagination Lead You To More Business Success by Howard Lewinter Do you remember when you were a child playing games? Since I was a child before the age of the internet and the computer (and maybe you are too), I remember in the summertime when school was out leaving the house at 8 oclock in the morning, come back home for lunch, then leave again but be back home for dinner, then leave one more time but be back home before dark (as the fireflies would begin to illuminate the night). Nobody ever asked where I was or was concerned for my safety back in those days as they knew I was in the neighborhood playing games with the other kids on the block and the parents all watched out for us kids. Maybe you have similar childhood memories. During those childhood days, when I... Read More
