What Women Want
Don’t swim against the tide
We live in a society, and that is why many times we need to stop being proud of ourselves and acting so we are not going against the market trends. If we are living collectively, it is no good thinking individually.
Seasoning is useless after you’ve eaten
Some people procrastinate so much that, after spending so much time thinking about excuses and being lazy, loses the timing of life and of business.
Attention to your agreements
Doing things in a hurry, without the necessary attention has never been the right way to close a deal. A well-written agreement, without any chances for loopholes or information between the lines, may be the best way to avoid problems in the future.
Experience is mandatory
There’s no use if you own the world’s most advanced technologies, if there isn’t anyone capable of operating it. The same happens with a company with the best infrastructure, therefore no experienced staff to make responsible use of it.
Embrace all opportunities
We need to leave all doors and windows wide open, as well as our eyes, in order to embrace all the chances life gives us. On the contrary, regret is a certain guest - and it is never pretty.
Power over money?
Smart are those who create the rules, not necessarily who owns the money. What do you think about that? Read in this week’s Mantips what is Aleksandar Mandic’s opinion regarding the business world.
A discount is not always good
Many people think that, for having a friend who owns a business, they have the right to request for ‘small favors’. Some are even offended when the friend charges for the service. Ain’t that how it is in real life?
Get up before the competition
The saying ‘the early bird catches the warm’ goes way back, and in the business world it is certainly taken very seriously. Aleksandar Mandic’s tip to all of those who want to overcome the competitors has a lot to do with that.
Do you think or are you sure?
Everybody thinks they know something about someone. The problem of thinking is that it doesn’t mean we are certain. In this week’s tip, Aleksandar Mandic borrows a sentence in German to distinguish thinking from knowing.
Be careful with your money
In this week’s text, Aleksandar Mandic suggests that we take extra care before we spend our money. According to him, there is no money that is easily earned. That’s why it’s important to handle it with care.
Our mind is a funny thing, and if you let it, it may create impressions that are not actually real. For some people, a little bit of insecurity is more than enough for transforming certainty into doubt.
Don't stand still, move!
This week, Aleksandar Mandic says that, better than standing still, is to keep moving no matter what. In order to be successful in the business world, the best to do is to become a weapon instead of remaining a target.
Know how to manage
There’s no point in being the boss if you don’t know the best way to delegate tasks to your staff. Aleksandar Mandic’s tip this month is about the art of administrating people.
Study, study, study
You have probably heard the sentence that say knowledge is power at least a dozen times in your life. The more information we have, the bigger the chances to come up with good arguments and smart decisions.
Let the imagination flow
Sometimes the key to success if right in front of us, and we can't see it because we're conditioned to thinking the same way at all times, leaving no space for making it differently.
Humility above all else
If there is a virtue that should be with us at all times, that virtue is humility. In this week's Mantips, Aleksandar Mandic comments a quote from Roberto Marinho about one of the main qualities in the business world.
