Xouscast 5 – 20 “C”s for success

Las 20 C's del éxito
Las 20 C’s del éxito

I started this new podcast, with the short version of the podcast.

If you don’t want to watch the whole video, and actually you don’t even want to click on the play button, here you have:

My dad once told me: “if you want to suceed, pay attention to these 3 factors: ability, perseverance, and luck“.

I didn’t like that, considering that it means that 33% of your success, depends on luck. Although I’m not discarding any of these 3 factors, I’ve compiled them with another 17 items (all of them, in spanish, start with the “C” letter).

I hope you enjoy it, and specially I hope that you find this useful. Thanks for watching!

Video – Xouscast #5

PS: Sorry, but english translation is not ready yet.

PS2: considering that this is Xouscast #5 you may assume that there is a Xouscast #4. Actually, there isn’t (yet). But I hope I’ll fix that soon.

Conflict management

without reprehensible actions there will be less room for reprehension
without reprehensible actions
there will be less room for reprehension

If you don’t want to read too much, the meme I made for this article summarizes preety well what the article says.

I have a method quite effective to avoid conflicts with your employer, partner, friends, etc:

  • 90% by avoiding doing things that are reprensible, or a reprensible attitude.
  • 10% by accepting reprensible things, or reprensible attitudes.

This doesn’t avoid all conflicts, but it leaves less room for reprisements.
In the 1st. item attacking causes, and in the 2nd. one, managing the consequences.

Some clarifications:

  1. Of course, anyone can judge on his/her way. Also, there will be a unanimous(?) agreement that on some acts are more than reprisable. They are unacceptable.
  2. Each person will establish his/her percentages according to the type of relationship we’re talking about: are we talking about your mate? your job, your friends? etc…
  3. And I never said these percentages will remain still. They may probably go back and forward, depending how old, the time of your life, your experiences. Today it can be 90/10, tomorrow 70/30, even 50/50, etc…

My only warning would be: don’t wait to the point where we are 90% accepting (or expecting acceptation).
Don’t play with your patience. Don’t play with the patience of others.

Xouscast 3 – Receiving negative feedback

So here you have: Feedback!

For the way that I see it, it is the start of a path of improvement.

You may receive positive or negative feedback. And the obvious is that everyone prefers to receive or give positive feedback. I’d like to expose some concepts about receiving negative feedback.

Using the half-empty, half-full glass of water analogy, I will make you think about it. And of couse: your feedback is welcome! :)
