Donald Trump’s Comeback Starts Now!

Published

on

The comeback for Donald Trump starts now!  Donald Trump’s comeback starts now as he speaks to his supporters at CPAC on Sunday.  Donald Trump wrote the Art of the Comeback in 1997. Now in 2021, he is poised to make his most remarkable comeback yet. This Sunday, the 45th President of the United States will return to the place his political movement began – CPAC.  CPAC is the largest gathering of conservatives in the nation each year and this year they have the focus of America Uncanceled. On Sunday, Donald Trump will address his base and the country.

Indeed the comebacks starts now.  Trumpist and conservatives are anxious to hear from Trump.  His followers continue to look to the leader who led the Nation to a robust economy and through the pandemic that plagued the world.

How will Trump choose to start his comeback?

Maybe he could focus on the economy that he worked so hard to build. One message that the world needs to hear now is how to recover from the pandemic and get businesses back to work. Biden’s slogan of “Build Back Better” was catchy but lacked details on how to open the economy and build back. Trump, the business owner who has built back better from losses, can teach the American people and the business world how to recover from setbacks and failures.

Part of the amazing story of Trump is how he always recovers from setbacks. Policies like restricting Federal overreach, better trade deals, and helping small businesses through grants and loans are the right message to send to begin a comeback. Trump gets things done.   He can contrast that reality with a Democratic house that has set on its hands during the pandemic. The Democratic leaders are good at pointing fingers, while Trump is good at pointing the way forward.

Finish the wall!

Or he could focus on Americanism. Trump won his election against Hillary Clinton because of his focus on “Making America Great Again.”  He defined making America great by protecting its borders, elevating law and order, and overcoming radical terrorism around the world.  He would do well to remind people of these consistent real threats that would still impact the American people’s day-to-day lives.

People are drawn to Trump because of his strength and his convictions.  He will motivate the crowd and inspire his based when he speaks of past and new convictions that will make America great.  Statements such as “Finish the Wall” and “Make elections honest” will create a new buzz that will propel him forward as the man who will shape the Republican party and continue to shape the Nation.

Vote them Out!

He could go on the attack of those that have attacked him. Trump understands the anger that is brewing in America over career politicians that continue to make money instead of help the people.  Trump should remind his listeners that the attacks on him are really attacks against the American people.  The smugness of the Democratic leaders and the disdain of the ultra-liberal media against the common person or common decency will engender a movement of conservatives to use their voice and their vote to remove those that have forgotten that they represent the people of America.

Trump should start a movement to “vote them out!”  Trump likes to punch back at those that punch at him.  However, instead of name calling, he could call out the wicked and scheming actions of those that attacked him.   If he could punch back for the American people, he would set himself in contrast to those currently in power.  He would again become the voice of the people.

Get me help!

Trump should announce that he will lead the Trump Make America Great Again political action committee.  This committee will be a platform to help elect leaders and politicians that align with his vision.  These politicians will care more about the American people than they do their pocketbooks. He should follow the example of Newgt Gringrich and create a new contract with America. He should identify his top priorities that every politician should sign on to receive his and his follower’s support. His clarity on this message will inspire a new group of politicians to run with him when he seeks reelection.

Finally, Trump should show vulnerability about the election loss and the riot at the Capital. Acknowledging his humility will only make him stronger.  Talking about his sadness over the loss of life at the capital will make him relatable.  Speaking about the disobedience to law and order will only make his pathway to action brighter.  Trump understands that change happens not from yelling change from the podium, but rather when the American people rise up and act in their local communities and precincts.  When the American people speak and call their local representatives, they move the representative to action.  Only the people can ensure fair and free elections.

In his book, The Art of the Comeback, Trump put in his forward an apology.  He apologized to two men that he felt he was too hard on in his previous book.  It was a fantastic way to start a book about comebacks.  It will also be an amazing way for him to begin his own comeback.  By apologizing for what happened at the Capital and for losing the election (even amid voter irregularities), Trump will stand above the political fray.   He will become a leader that every American can trust and admire.

The secret for the comeback of Donald Trump can be found in his book, The Art of Comeback. Trump writes,

“I’m a firm believer in learning from Adversity. Often the worst of times can turn to your advantage – my life is a study of that.”

Indeed, Trump is not done; in fact, his legacy is just beginning. Much like the Kennedys before him, he can shape the nation for the next 50 years.  Twitter and social media worked to silence him, but he will not be silenced.  His comeback starts this Sunday, and indeed it will be fun to watch.

Work-Life Balance in Your Life

It the ability to experience a sense of control and to stay productive and competitive at work while maintaining a happy, healthy home-life

Published

on

Work-life balance (WLB) is the ability to experience a sense of control and to stay productive and competitive at work while maintaining a happy, healthy home-life with sufficient leisure. WLB, also referred to by some as work-life harmony, work-life shift, work-life blend, work-life effectiveness, or work-life integration, requires focus and awareness despite seemingly endless tasks and activities competing for our time and attention.

Work-life balance entails having what I call “breathing space” for yourself each day, feeling a sense of accomplishment while not being consumed by work, and having an enjoyable domestic life without short-changing career obligations. WLB is rooted in whatever fulfillment means to you within the course of a day and a week, and however many years you have left in your life.

Supporting Disciplines

Several disciplines support work-life balance though, individually, none are synonymous with work-life balance:

1) Self Management

Sufficiently managing one’s self can be challenging, particularly in getting proper sleep, exercise, and nutrition. Self-management is the recognition that effectively using the spaces in our lives is vital, and that life, time, and available resources are finite. It means becoming captain of our own ship; no one is coming to steer for us.

2) Time Management

Effective time management involves making optimal use of your day and the supporting resources that can be summoned – you can only keep pace when your resources match your challenges. Time management is enhanced through appropriate goals and discerning what is both important and urgent, versus important OR urgent. It entails understanding what you do best and when, and assembling the appropriate tools to accomplish specific tasks.

3) Stress Management

By nature, societies tend to become more complex over time. In the face of increasing complexity, stress on the individual is inevitable. More people, noise, and distractions, independent of one’s individual circumstances, require each of us to become more adept at maintaining tranquility and being able to work ourselves out of pressure-filled situations. Most forms of multi-tasking ultimately increase our stress, while focusing on one thing at a time helps decrease stress.

4) Change Management

In our fast-paced world, change is virtually the only constant. Continually adopting new methods, adapting old, and re-adapting all methods is vital to a successful career and a happy home life. Effective change management involves offering periodic and concerted efforts so that the volume and rate of change at work and at home does not overwhelm or defeat you.

5) Technology Management

Effectively managing technology requires ensuring that technology serves you, rather than abuses you. Technology has always been with us, since the first walking stick, spear, flint, and wheel. Today, the rate of technological change is accelerating, brought on by vendors seeking expanding market share. Often you have no choice but to keep up with the technological Joneses, but rule technology, don’t let it rule you.

6) Leisure Management

The most overlooked of the work-life balance supporting disciplines, leisure management acknowledges 1) the importance of rest and relaxation, 2) that “time off” is a vital component of the human experience, and 3) that one can’t indefinitely short-change leisure without repercussions. Curiously, too much of the same leisure activity, however enjoyable, can lead to monotony. Thus, effective leisure management requires varying one’s activities.

Entirely Achievable

Achieving work-life balance does not require radical changes in what you do. It is about developing fresh perspectives and sensible, actionable solutions that are appropriate for you. It is fully engaging in life with what you have, right where you are, smack dab in the ever-changing dynamics of your existence.

Work-life Balance: The Enduring Quest

Organizations today recognize the importance of supporting employees’ well-being while maintaining productivity

Published

on

Thank goodness that organizations today increasingly recognize the importance of supporting employees’ well-being while maintaining productivity. As such, the corporate quest for work-life balance, harmony, and integration has gained great prominence.

Key Aspects

Here are 12 key aspects of this pursuit gleaned from a variety of programs:

1. Offer Flexible Work Arrangements: Offering flexible work schedules, remote work options, and part-time opportunities allows employees to better balance their professional and personal lives.

2. Have Clear Policies: Establishing clear policies and guidelines regarding work hours, overtime, and expectations helps employees manage their time effectively.

3. Support Mental Health: Providing access to mental health resources, counseling, and stress management programs can address employees’ emotional well-being.

4. Give Leave: Offering generous paid time off, including vacation, sick leave, and parental leave, allows employees to address personal and family needs without fear of repercussions.

5. Prevent Burnout: Encouraging employees to disconnect from work-related technology after hours helps prevent burnout and supports work-life separation.

6. Support Workload Management: Ensuring that employees have manageable workloads and realistic deadlines prevents excessive stress and long working hours.

7. Provide Wellness Programs: Implementing wellness initiatives, such as fitness facilities, nutrition programs, and health screenings, promotes a healthier work-life balance.

8. Enable Employee Assistance Programs: Such programs provide confidential counseling and support services for employees facing personal challenges.

9. Promote a Culture of Balance: Company culture plays a significant role in work-life balance. Leaders should model a balanced lifestyle, and the organization should celebrate accomplishments beyond work.

10. Maintain Continuous Communication: Engaging in open dialogues with employees about their needs and concerns regarding work-life balance fosters a supportive and responsive corporate culture.

11. Empower Workers with Training and Education: Providing training on time management, stress reduction, and resilience equips employees with the skills to better balance their lives.

12. Leverage Remote Work Policies: Crafting clear remote work policies and expectations ensures that remote employees have a structured work-life balance.

Bringing in the Hired Gun

As the world’s only holder of the title, “The Work-Life Balance Expert®,” as issued by the USPTO,  I am often summoned by organizations to enhance work-life balance for their troops. In all, I’ve delivered programs and spoken to 960 groups. Below depicts an encounter with a company who shall remain nameless for reasons of confidentiality. See if this squares up with your experience in your organization.

The following responses were derived as a result of my sending a questionnaire to the conference meeting planner where I was to be their keynote speaker. I requested the names of 10 people who would be in the audience. I called each of them to discuss their current challenges. Here are their actual replies to three of my questions:

1) If you could magically resolve a work-life balance issue, what would it be?

* Have more breathing room between high-level projects.
* Accomplish more during the workday and leave mentally free.
* Hire more staff!
* Take vacations and time off with no big pile ups when returning.

* Be allowed to take some Fridays off and catch up on much needed appointments.
* Reduce the number of pop-up requests and questions flying at me all day long so that I could ACTUALLY do what I need to do each day.
* Be approved to work from home or adjust my hours. My personal time isn’t respected.

2) What do you seek to derive from attending a session such as mine?

* Manage my time more effectively.
* Gain tools to embrace life while living it
* Develop stronger skills.
* Make work-life balance a reality in our company’s work-first culture.

* Acquire strategies, tips, or ideas to re-think my approach.
* Learn to change my focus, to be more productive, balanced, and focused.
* Be able to balance the few things that I do control during my day.
* Discover tips for keeping my staff in balance.

* Gain a realistic expectation of what we can achieve or experience.
* Develop a more positive outlook for the group.

3) Are there any observations you could offer?

* Work-life balance is a huge topic organization-wide. We are high performers who want to do a good job. We compromise our personal lives to meet work demands. We have to keep pace with the leaders and teams we support. If we don’t, we’ll be deemed unresponsive.

* A frenetic pace seems to be inherent in this company. Our team does a good job of emphasizing work-life balance; the problem lies with the surrounding divisions that thrive on working all the time, for no good reason. Yes, we are in a global space, working in different time zones, but some of these people are beyond the pale.

* What I love about this organization are the people. They are dedicated to the cause and truly want to deliver reliable, affordable, dynamic, and versatile solutions to our customers. However, our frenetic pace isn’t necessary. Not every project is the most vital. Not every problem is an emergency. Not every request has to be filled now.

* If in charge, I’d implement a more efficient, logical pace organization-wide. If we all took a breath and reevaluated how we work, in a more focused environment, we might find that we could produce better results with less stress.

Resonates Strongly

As you can see, the topic of work-life balance resonates strongly among today’s career professionals. Going forward, may more organization recognize and acknowledge the critical role that employee wellness and work-life balance has on the organization’s overall effectiveness.
