Manufacture Your Day by UNDERSTANDING THAT SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE

 In Manufacture Your Day

Manufacturing Workforce Training Consistency

Slow and steady in the manufacturing industry? I gotta be kidding, right?

Yesterday someone said to me, “We simply don’t have the time to look at the root cause of the problem.”

My answer, “How do you find the time to do it over and over again?”

It’s mind-boggling but so many people have gotten into the fire-fighting habit. It’s the mindset and their thought process that holds them back from being at the top of their game.

Phrases such as….

  • We don’t have time.
  • I can’t.
  • That’s impossible.
  • Not now, later.
  • It’s too hard and too much work.
  • Let’s find a short-cut.
  • Why fix it if it ain’t broke.

This is what gets us out shape – in business and in life.

It’s the compound effect of daily consistency that affects the bottom line. If we become disciplined enough to get the small things right, it will affect the big things. Self-discipline is one of the basics when it comes to mental toughness, and there are no shortcuts to becoming disciplined.

In January the gyms will be filled again with the “New Year, New Me” crowd. If these people make consistency a habit, the results will come. We are now in November, and November is as good as any other month to focus on what’s important to you. It’s time to take action.

Let me end my message today with one of Aesops fables:

The Crow and the Pitcher

A Crow, half-dead with thirst, came upon a Pitcher which had once been full of water; but when the Crow put its beak into the mouth of the Pitcher he found that only very little water was left in it, and that he could not reach far enough down to get at it.

He tried, and he tried, but at last had to give up in despair.

Then a thought came to him, and he took a pebble and dropped it into the Pitcher.

Then he took another pebble and dropped it into the Pitcher.

Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher.

Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher.

Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher.

Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher.

At last, at last, he saw the water mount up near him, and after casting in a few more pebbles he was able to quench his thirst and save his life.

The moral of this fable: Little by little does the trick.

Food for Thought:

How consistent are you with your pebbles?
