Communication and Innovation

Communication Is Important

By Zig Ziglar

The dictionary says that to communicate is “to impart, to give to another, as a partaker, to confer for joint possession, to bestow, as that which the receiver is to hold, retain, use or enjoy.  To impart as knowledge, to reveal, to give as information, either by words, signs or signals, as to communicate intelligence, news, opinions.”

Despite the fact that we have incredible technology which enables us to “communicate” instantly with people all over the world, we’re still woefully short on one-on-one communication skills.  Effective communication skills are critical to building good relationships and to increasing productivity and the effectiveness of the people with whom we associate.  Basically, leaders know how to communicate and they communicate in many ways.  Once, while jogging in Chattanooga, I passed a house that had a sign which said, “No Trespassers.”  Underneath it, the sign said, “Trespassers Will Be Shot – Survivors Will Be Shot Again.”  That’s communication.

Fiero LaGuardia was mayor of New York during World War II, before America entered the conflict.  During his tenure he was given the unenviable task of providing police protection for a group of Nazi dignitaries who were visiting the city.  He had no choice but to provide it, but he communicated very strongly by making certain that every member of the police force assigned to protect those men were Jews.  I’m confident Hitler got the message.  That’s communicating.

I love the little story told by Herm Albright who, after watching a middle-aged waitress going about her business efficiently and with a smile for everyone, decided to compliment her on her good humor.  She responded, as she continued to work, “It’s like this.  If you see the twinkles, you won’t notice the wrinkles.”  That’s communication.

Think about your communication skills.  Practice good communicating techniques in your personal, family and business life.  The better you do it, the more likely I am to SEE YOU AT THE TOP!

Innovation

By Dan Wilson

Ever wonder how in spite of this difficult economy there are those who continue to prosper, whose products and services remain in high demand, Stephen Jobs being a  great example?  Did you see in the news how many people are lined up to purchase the new i-phone?  What’s his secret?  Does he work harder than we do, is he smarter than we are, does he just happen to be in the right industry at the right time, or is he just plain lucky?  Maybe, but I’m willing to bet you work hard too, are plenty smart, offer products and services you believe in and that others would strongly benefit from, but as for luck it just doesn’t seem to come your way like it seems to for him.  So what is it that sets him apart?   We are currently in the midst of doing some major repair work, painting and sprucing up around our house, and in the course of doing so we have discovered two things.  One, embarrassingly, is how much dust and filth has accumulated above, beneath and around furniture, books, and various sundries that have remained in the same spot far too long.  But the other is how many new ideas have emerged as we began to move things around, discard, clean and freshen up.  We now have a whole new concept of how our home should be arranged.

So what does that have to do with the success of the new i-phone and what Steve Jobs is up to that seems to work in this seemingly endless recession we are in?  The answer is innovation.  It is the innovators who not only survive but thrive, and it is the innovators who will lead us out of the recession.  They always do.  And those who fail to innovate will, unfortunately, fall behind.

Innovation is neither a special talent possessed only by a gifted few, nor is it exclusive of hard work.  In fact, the two go hand in hand, as demonstrated by the new ideas that begin to emerge as we move, clean and paint around our house.  Those ideas are the result of hard work, not idle day-dreaming.  I, of all people, should know this, for as a business coach what I do professionally is challenge clients to become innovative, and to realize that innovation emerges when we begin to move a few things around that have remained in the same spot far too long.  And when we do something innovative there is a much better chance people will stand in line for it, even in a difficult economy.

Put your data-hungry gadget on a diet (Click on the link below to read this article from the USA TODAY)
http://www.usatoday.com/tech/columnist/kimkomando/story/2012-04-06/digital-data-costs/54058880/1

A friend and I were having lunch recently. She’s an Angry Birds – http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/Angry+Birds – fanatic, so I asked if she had downloaded the new Angry Birds Space.
“I will tonight,” she said, “when I get home.”
I wondered if my friend had been taken over by an alien life form. She’s the type who’s always reaching for her Android smartphone faster than Billy the Kid – http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/Billy+the+Kid – to get directions or look up a bit of trivia online.
I must have looked puzzled, because she added, “I’ve put my phone on a data diet.”
“Ah,” I said, getting the picture. She didn’t want to download the game while on her cellular network. She was waiting until she could connect to a Wi-Fi network.
To avoid hefty cellular overage charges and data throttling, millions of smartphone and tablet users are keeping close eyes on what their gadgets are eating.
Like weight-loss diets, the key to a successful data diet is replacing bad habits with good ones, while not getting too restrictive. After all, what’s the point of having a smartphone if all you do is use it like a dumb phone?
The first step involves getting a handle on how much data you actually consume. Most people don’t know or greatly underestimate what common activities cost them in terms of data use.
What’s a typical day like in the life of your 4G Android? Let’s say it’s sending 25 emails, visiting 25 web pages, streaming one hour of music and 10 minutes of video. That will add up to about 3.75GB of data in a month not good if you’re on Verizon’s 2GB tier or AT T’s 3GB tier. For every 1GB you go over, you’re charged an extra $10.
Each of the four major wireless carriers AT T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile has a data calculator on its site that will help you determine how much data you need. Once you know that, it’s time to get smarter about how you use your smartphone.
The simplest and most effective way to trim cellular data calories is to use Wi-Fi whenever possible. You can set any Android or iOS gadget to automatically connect to known Wi-Fi networks.
Try to confine all streaming and downloading to when you’re on a free Wi-Fi connection. You can watch downloaded video and music while you’re on the go.
Did you know that you can download portions of Google Maps – http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/Culture/Computers+and+Internet/Google+Inc – and refer to them offline? Navigate to the Labs section of Google Maps on your Android phone and enable the feature called Pre-cache map area. Now you can download 10-square-mile sections of maps. In addition to being a money-saver, that can be a real time-saver if you’re going somewhere unfamiliar and aren’t sure if you’ll even have cellular coverage.
These tips will curb the appetites of the major data hogs in your life, but you probably have a few data nibblers lurking on your phone that could deal you an unpleasant surprise.
Do you use a lot of free ad-supported apps? If so, you need to know that they’re constantly connecting to the Internet to download fresh ads. It might actually save you money in the long run to instead choose the paid version of these types of apps.
Your email and social networking apps are probably also connecting to the Internet in the background so you can stay in the loop. In Settings, you can choose to turn off automatic syncing and check for updates manually. Likewise, you can stop the camera and other apps from constantly using the phone’s GPS to track location.
Finally, sign up to get your carrier’s overage alerts and get in the habit of checking your data usage two or three times a week. If your carrier doesn’t offer a data-monitoring app or you’d like a more full-featured third-party app, look at My Data Manager and Onavo for Android. For iPhone, consider My Data Usage Pro or Onavo’s innovative data-compressing app.
With just a little proactive monitoring, it can become almost easy to keep the hungry beast under control.

Here are some details on all the phones and plans Lightyear Wireless offers! Don t let your current cell phone company put your Data on a diet, switch to Lightyear Wireless TODAY!
