Lessons for Success (LFS) Lesson 13


Lesson 4- SHARPEN THE SAW

HOOK- Play Video 9– Roadrunner Cartoon-The roadrunner cartoons illustrate the principal that working harder does not equal working more effectively.

After showing the cartoon talk about how Wile Coyote works so hard but does not accomplish much, whereas Road Runner just works smarter and accomplishes a lot. If you are not balanced in your Body, Mind, Heart, and Soul it is hard to work smarter. If you are balanced however, everything is easier.

This is a really huge career skill. If you learn to work smarter, you will be very successful on the job, and in life. Show this video which demonstrates the work smarter not harder philosophy.
