MMMM Food For Thought – What You Put In

What You Put In

Food For Thought

It’s Marketing Mercenary’s Monday Morning, and here’s what I’m chewing on.

Many, many times, you’ve heard people say, “You get out of it what you put into it.” It seems to be universally true. I think it’s most often used in terms of a civic organization or a self-improvement strategy – some effort to better one’s community or personal situation. I most recently heard it in terms of Rainmakers, one of the business networking groups to which I belong.

It seems that, in various situations, some frustrated folks might think, “I’m putting A LOT into it (whatever IT is), and not getting a lot out of it!”

In that case, it’s time to evaluate the quality of what you’re putting into “it.” You might be putting forth enough effort, but not putting the right kind of effort into “it.”

What do you think? Are there times when you made an adjustment in your efforts or attitude, and it made all the difference?
