Stop, Look and Listen

I don’t know about you but when I was young I was taught the phrase stop, look and listen.

This phrase has stayed with me and to this day — serves as a reminder to be present in all situations.

In this world of instant gratification and attitude of — I need it now.
It’s easy to see how some companies end up with bad tech.

When making tech decisions in your business it’s important that you participate. Stop what you’re working on. Put it aside for a few minutes and provide your insight, requirements and opinions to help make the best possible tech decision.

We all seem to run 100 miles an hour. When making a tech decision it’s important for you to stop for a minute and provide your vision and your requirements. Your opinion matters.

Be open to all the options.
Go into situations with your eyes wide open.

Hear what others have to say.
Consider the information carefully.

These three words stop look and listen really capture the concept of being present.

This practice can help you make better tech decisions.

Too often I hear the words just get it done or I don’t care.

When I hear the words just get it done or I don’t care

I know that things are headed in the wrong direction.

Please be present in your interactions.
Stop. Look. Listen.
