In listening to the dialogue of many in presenting ideas in real estate or in negotation I wonder often about their thinking processes.
Are You Well Grounded Or Are People Shocked By You?
In electrical transmission the ground conductor prevents dangerous current from flowing through YOU and allows it safely to go to the "ground" connection.
Well grounding among people means you use sound judgment, you are patient, you strive to understand and be understood, your ideas are based on good reasoning, you are collaborative and realistic, organized, well versed in your area, rational and precise. You have a foundation for what you say and how you think.
Plainly you are not scatterbrained, think before you act, and are on an even keel Now are there days when our cords are a bit frayed? Sure. But being well grounded we don't get others into trouble, "shocking" them, well at least not intentionally. Keep both feet on the ground and work with people in a polite, respectful and well informed manner. If you don't know an answer obtain it. Above all put that brain in gear before the mouth goes in motion. Otherwise you might burn your house or someone else's house down.
