Sometimes we have then cashed it in for something special which would not have been done otherwise. A little here and there, without using up much time, can add value to your bottom line.
One of the interesting things about consistently reading and hearing content from quality sources is that you start to notice trends. It is amazing how often the same topics arise at the same time in different places. We use this blog as a way to help you stay on top of the major themes in procurement and supply chain management.
Years ago, my husband and I decide to wallpaper the dining room. The first and last time we made that decision!! Thankfully the trends are now to paint and not wallpaper. Whew! The roles we took were for me to measure and cut and for my husband to paste and hang. Neither one of us had the right role. I cut backwards from what we needed and he would cause more wrinkles than you can imagine. So we switched and it was like magic! It was a life’s lesson that we refer to now many years later. Know what you are good at and get others to join the team that can cover your weaknesses.

We certainly set that expectation on others so if you turn that around to yourself, how do YOU do with the follow through?
