Robert Stevenson’s Thoughts on the Pursuit of Excellence


Loyalty

October 17, 2021

by Robert Stevenson

We become loyal when we believe in something or someone; it is something that is developed—or lost—as a direct result of our own actions, behaviors, and motives. To earn the loyalty of others, your behaviors and actions have to reflect that YOU WERE LOYAL FIRST.



True Friends

by Robert Stevenson

Most people have a pretty good idea who their enemies are, and if they are smart, they follow Niccollo Machiavelli’s advice of: “Keep your friends close, your enemies closer.” Today I want to address something we sometimes give very little thought to … our friends. We have a tendency to closely monitor our enemies, watching every move they make, but overlook or take for granted the people who can have the most impact on our lives.



Losing Over One Day Out of Every Work Week

Interruptions are one of the biggest sufferings in the workplace. They cause disruptions and unnecessary delays during working hours. A recent study shows an average of 28% of productivity is lost due to interruptions. That adds up extra 2.25 hours of work out of an eight-hour workday is lost!



Eliminating Bad Habits

August 29, 2021

by Robert Stevenson

We all have bad habits that could be ruining our careers. The key to success in business is eliminating bad habits and developing good ones. English novelist Charles Reade, I think said it best when he wrote: “Sow a thought and you reap an act; Sow an act and you reap a habit; Sow a habit and you reap a character; Sow a character and you reap a destiny.”



The Psychology in Leadership

August 22, 2021

by Robert Stevenson

What are your employees thinking? What is bothering, annoying and/or frustrating them? What barriers are in their way that, in their opinion, are hindering them from performing their job properly, quickly, and efficiently?



Enthusiasm - The Electricity of Life

August 15, 2021

by Robert Stevenson

Emerson said, “Nothing great is ever achieved without enthusiasm.” I see enthusiasm as the critical trait, component, and ingredient in the personality of successful people. Enthusiasm is the gas that drives your engine on your journey towards SEEKING EXCELLENCE. With enthusiasm you will forever have the chance to succeed; without it, you have failed before you ever started. Some people show it differently than others, but that doesn’t mean it is any less powerful or they are any less committed.
