The Corporate Wet Spot

The Corporate Wet Spot

There are things in our lives that seem to have to be avoided at all costs.  

Wet Spots seems to be one of them.  What is a Wet Spot to you?  Just two simple words that have an air connected to them.  

There are words that garner a giggle when mentioned and in some cases, a hand is placed in front of one's mouth as you are giggling, blush with embarrassment and trying to pretend it is not you that is laughing.

Balls is another example.  No matter how you say, it always remits back to testicles.  Football, golf ball, deflate-gate, you get the picture.  Children, when they learn a word and it's many meanings, all revert to the most obscene or obnoxious street meaning. Remember when you found out about the F-word!

I, as a very young child, maybe five or six years old, came home from kindergarten and proceeded to use the F-word to my Grandmother, who told me my Grandfather would not be happy in me using that expression.  I had no earthly idea of what it meant.  It was just that day it was the word that everyone was using and giggling about.  Innocent banter, which in turn was offending adults, only as they giggled on what a group of children using the word for. After all, it is a verb is it not?

Back to the Wet Spot!  If whilst eating you drop some food or liquid on your shirt, tie or blouse and then wipe it away with a damp napkin, it leaves what?  

A Wet Spot.

While working out at the gym, jogging or is just a hot day, you sweat and leave a Wet Spot

The majority of you still haven't got out of your head what the first thought of a Wet Spot is to you and are now smiling on how I am going to turn that thought into a Corporate Wet Spot!

Firstly how did I consider using the title and where the heck did it come from? 

It was with a Mail Carrier who was talking about the perks of the job of delivering the US Mail that stated it had some great perks and then not so good perks.  I asked what were the down sided to the job and this is what I learned. 

She was delivering mail and needed a signature for a piece of mail and the recipient was mowing his yard on a riding mower. As he stopped and dismounted, she could hardly not notice he was wearing a very brief speedo. Being a woman, she peeked and the first thing she noticed of his "package", was a wet spot. 

She has not been the same since!

That got me thinking, what was it that the man had? Was it an incontinence issue? Was it some sort of pre-flow? Did he innocently spill something in that spot? Really doesn't matter, it is always the first thing that comes into our head and you know exactly what the Mail Carrier was thinking!

Wet Spots are mentally connected to a sexual activity and it is always after the fact that no one wants to roll or lay on the proverbial Wet Spot

Think for a moment, why is it there and what is it the result of?  Pleasure, satisfaction, a conclusion if you wish.  We should be smiling, embracing, although I do think we need to go that far of this climatic residue!

Let us look at the Wet Spot as a satisfactory result in corporate terms.  We are looking for success, praise, and satisfaction.  Results do not need to be giggled at or about, they a culmination of efforts.  Fulfillment if you wish.

Sure, if left unattended to, they can stain and be left as evidence, ask Bill Clinton about the "Blue Dress", or even Hillary!

Marks are not notches on a gun belt of how many "kills" you have accomplished. Corporate marks should be an achievement and worn proudly, like a badge of honor. There you go again, giggling and finishing the thought before I do...

The question is simple, How are your Corporate Wet Spots or examples of satisfaction?

Just a thought...

Inhabit Yourself!

Inhabit Yourself!

To be a successful and professional in your business, social and personal life you have to inhabit all you do.  It is the ability to live within and to score from that passion for the level of involvement, solvability, and satisfaction.


To live or reside in.

To be present in.

Synonyms: dwell, live, populate.

When you inhabit a place, you live there. When actors inhabit their roles, they seem to become the characters, no longer actors reciting their lines. It is like they live the life of the character.

The verb inhabit comes from the Old French enhabiter, meaning “dwell in.” You can inhabit an actual place, like a home, a cave, or a neighborhood.

When you create your business, products, and services you have to be one with them, inhabit them.  Just like a songwriter/performer working in the studio until that perfect track is created, that is inhabiting the creation from within and taking it on the road for continuing performance is then the challenge that can only happen when you inhabit final creation.

Life has become disjointed, no broken and superglue does not work for long on this type of demanded fix.  It is the belief from within that will warm the cockles of your heart and those that surround you, those you reach out to, brushing shoulders as you walk down the street or through the office.  It does not stop there, make sure it goes everywhere with you, importantly take it home and share this phenomenon.

The change will surprise you and grow to those that surround you.  Stand firm in your beliefs in all that you do, take that passion to a height that makes heads turn and say it as it is!

Some will find you an arrogant SOB in some respects, ignore them and follow that spirit that is missing in most of us.  It is really there, it may be a flickering ember that just needs a little extra wind to start that fire within, find it!

When you know you are right and someone challenges your veracity on the matter, stand your ground.  if they are argumentative, take it toe to toe, restate your known facts and walk away.  They do not deserve your expertise and you certainly do not need the likes of them near you!

There are too many charlatans in the world from Presidents to slimy salespeople and those potential business partners that tell you what they think you want to hear. The appeasement factor is used far too often, especially by the government to the people.  Appeasement in most cases is a pack of lies that stop people from moving forward or that is what those that are espousing are hoping.

We have all either lived our lives, still growing and changing as we go, learning along the way or we are just starting within the baby steps of life. 

Listen, watch and absorb and do not accept what you are told as gospel truth, take second opinions, challenge the statements having them explained in full. Do not believe all you read on the Internet as this is a tool of deception used by these people.  Yes, there is the Good, the Bad and the Ugly lurking around every corner and within Google search.
Listen, we all make major mistakes and break our own rules, it is the end results that are the most important.  In your business and social deals listen very careful and remember there is no tomorrow, it is always today!

So go out and Inhabit Yourself

We are in the NOW and 
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…
