What is your sorting criteria?

As humans we sort subconsciously… Can I trust this person? Are they healthy? Are they in “my tribe?”

In our profession we sort people into groups. What’s your most important sorting philosophy: the person who is easiest to approach OR is most likely to succeed? And how do you determine that?

Check out Seth Godin’s recent post for some thought provoking insights, especially in the third paragraph.

Trapped in a tin can

What characteristics are important in a teammate?

International Space Station former Commander Chris Hadfield shares some wisdom:

In the Shuttle era, NASA wanted people who could operate the most complicated vehicle in the world for short stints. Today, NASA looks for people who can be locked in a tin can for six months and excel, so temperament alone could disqualify you for space flight.

(quote from “An Astronaut’s Guide To Life On Earth,” pp 39-40)

I realize Network Marketing Is Not Rocket Science.

But both situations emphasize long-term missions.

When I’m presenting my company’s business plan, I ask myself, “Is this an upbeat person with a sense of adventure and willingness to learn? Would I look forward to receiving calls from this person? Or would I grimace to see their text or Caller ID pop onto my smartphone screen?”

Let me clarify, I’m not trying to pick my new best friend. However, I would like to enjoy the time I spend with them… at least, not abhor the idea.

Remember… in our profession we get to pick our teammates. So choose wisely.
