Achieving Your Objectives: Starting Slow In Order to Go Fast

In our fast paced world sometimes success requires less speed and more thought.

by Thuy Sindell, Ph.D. and Milo Sindell, M.S.

In today’s turbo-charged, nitro-powered, gotta-go world, we are pushed to perform faster and, in many environments, we are rewarded for speed. However, it’s very difficult, if not impossible, to achieve the right objectives on time if you are not clear on what success really looks like, on the resources required, and have a plan. Taking the time to prepare and identify a strategy to achieve success will prevent truly detrimental derailers and, in turn, help you beat your deadlines.

Ready, Set, Pause

Sometime the most valuable action you can take is waiting an extra day to gather what you need, ask questions, gather additional materials, fill in the critical spots where you need more data. Be sure to find out about procedures, policies, politics, or strategies before you create your plan. As the planner, you are taking all available working knowledge and funneling it into a series of steps and procedures to create a positive outcome. Know what you’re planning, obstacles to avoid, and the most effective route to achieving your goals. 

When planning and organizing, it is vital to gather all the available knowledge you can about your initiative. This knowledge comes in a variety forms: videos, literature, reports, and other published outside knowledge; discussions with colleagues or people we know who have taken on similar projects; evaluation of the organization’s prior experience in dealing with a similar initiative; input from stakeholders for this particular endeavor; unearthing and addressing any sensitivities the project has; and last but not least, our own accumulated experience and ability to plan.

Temper Your Emotions

Sometimes we come up with great ideas that look like winning solutions. Temptation, enthusiasm, and passion can get the better of us, and we rush into action with more eagerness than a gold miner who has struck gold. Being powered by our emotions and energy can be fantastic, as this energy can launch you to quickly achieve milestones and blow through any early obstacles. Invariably, though, emotion can only take you and your team so far and you may start slowing down, and then an obstacle or situation comes along that stops you dead in your tracks: Money runs out. We lose a key resource or a supplier misses a deadline. Stuck, we might not know how to take the next step, or know even what the next step is. Balance emotions with preparation, contingency planning, and keeping your eye on the goal in order to go the distance

Success Is a Marathon

Like marathoners who start too fast, people who run at breakneck speeds, rushing their ideas, risk running into a wall that is truly debilitating. The new-initiative sprint often looks like this: amazing idea, coupled with passion, enthusiastic leadership support, and an adrenalin shot of get-it-done-now launches a poorly planned initiative into the cinder block wall called reality.

To avoid hitting this wall, begin by mapping out an initiative for the department or organization, spend a couple of extra days—or weeks, if you have it—to organize the business knowledge that will inform and strengthen the planning process.

Consider these questions prior to launching your next initiative:

  • What research needs to be done?
  • Who can you call for input and feedback on your plan?
  • How did the organization achieve related initiatives in the past?
  • What are vital resources and are they available?
  • What are the most significant obstacles to success and how do you address them?
  • Beyond emotion, what are the data to support the initiative?

All of these are simple questions that bolster your plans and help eliminate the painful moment when your great idea hits the wall and you have to start over.

    Every NOLA Apostate should be Preaching the end of the 2019 Legislative Session!
    Dear ‘Simps:

    LBRC- Dear NOLA Community Destroying Thievies and ‘Simps: (Old School Adage? “These People Ain’t Playing ‘WIC You)- 

    1. You thought you had impunity (aka Who can stop our sham?) from “Pimping” innocent  kids for checks, while you sloth at home watching Jerry, Murrah or whatever garbage. You could care less about how your kids are exploited in the Coon administrated RSD Racist Red State Neo Confederacy called Louisiana. You never do academic reading for clues, well here’s what’s up now…, Need Proof?>>>

    https://www.nola.com/politics/2019/06/new-louisiana-laws-parents-and-students-should-know-about.html

    2. Your Negro Coon sell- outs you elected/Representatives (Voting/Non Voting), along with their “Blue Dog” Governor aka “A Neocon Southern Democrat” just signed the following into law. Filthy ‘Simp “Hip Hop and Vulgar Rap Degenerates” are on notice as of August 1, 2019/New Fiscal Year Begins. (Note: You can’t find your kids after 8PM, let’s see you find a way to self-help/legally, after August 1st!).Though you’re ignorant of law and will probably remain so, here’s the new Matrix-

    Lawmakers have sent several education-related bills to Edwards. The governor has signed a handful of them into law as of Friday (June 7). Below are the bills signed into law so far this year that will either impact students, parents or the overall school system:

    Act 2

    Current law: This isn’t an education-related law, but it details how several crimes can result in harsh penalties if “serious bodily injury” is involved, including in cases of improper supervision of a minor by parent or legal custodian, failure to report a missing child, second-degree cruelty to juveniles, human trafficking, child pornography, and abuse of children.

    What’s new: Effective August 1, “serious bodily injury” will be defined as bodily injury involving unconsciousness; extreme physical pain; protracted and obvious disfigurement; protracted loss or impairment of the function of a bodily member, organ, or mental faculty; or a substantial risk of death. In child abuse cases, “serious bodily injury” will include injury resulting from starvation or malnutrition.

    Act 33

    Current law: This isn’t an education-related law, but it prohibits children from being placed in a foster home for temporary care or for adoption until it’s determined none of the adults living in the home of the prospective foster or adoptive parent has been convicted of or pleaded no contest to various specific crimes.

    What’s new: The new law repeals the current one and provides more specific language along with some flexibility for the state to approve foster homes. Among other elements, the law says that effective August 1, no prospective foster or adoptive parent or relative guardian will be approved to receive a child or guardian assistance payments until it’s determined that person or any other adult residing in that house does not have a felony conviction for child abuse or neglect; for spousal abuse; for a crime against children; for homicide; or sexual assault. In addition, no adult living in the home can have a felony conviction for physical assault, battery, or a drug-related offense which occurred within the past five years. /end/

    3. ‘Simps thought pimping kids (From Satan or Pick The Idol you Worship or Revere) was a gift in perpetuity, The Most High’s Most Precious Gift!!! 

    You refused to get off your ‘Glute and vote! You are a mindless “Echo Chamber”, “Ghetto Fabolously” in skinny leg plus adorned with Weaves/Extensions/Poison Nails and Chemical Make- up, including males! You admired everything on head in classrooms and left at the end of the day nothing inside! You’ll blame and indict everybody except what’s in your mirror! No more “Free Checks” for Criminals, The Slothful/Lazy, Thievies, says the Coons you worship! Don’t get it yet? You will! 

    May The Creator Protect and provide for his “Innocent”! “Faith without work(s) is dead! If you don’t work you don’t eat”! Abba Father!

    Peace out…

    LBRC- Trump Wants War With Iran! 

    1. He has literally imposed Economic Sanctions. He has banished Iran from The Swift System, a money transfer system and Checking International Clearing House tracking European, American and others. “All” Oil and most legal trading goes thru Swift! Without it, It’s nearly impossible to do business Internationally! Trump hardly challenges Russia and Germany! What is “Swift”?

    a. Behind most international money and security transfers is the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT) system. SWIFT is a vast messaging network used by banks and other financial institutions to quickly, accurately, and securely send and receive …>>>

    https://www.investopedia.com/articles/personal-finance/050515/how-swift-system-works.asp

    b. The “BRICS” violate SWIFT with impunity, including Saudi Arabia who has De Facto ditched the “Petro Dollar”! The “Israel Theocracy” and Natanyahu, who is a “Russian” Askanazi “Jew- ish”, where his lineage is! (Look it up!).

    3. WHY ARE WE TELLING NEGROES? What are “False Flags” and the international “Okedode” you always fall for? Beware of “Coon Echo Chambers”! 

    a. Today, June 10, The American Ambassador asked The Iranian Ambassador, do you believe Israel has the right to exist” aka “Illegal Settlements, Occupation and All! The Iranian Ambassador answered Israel is a “Physical” State! 

    b. Next, The American Ambassador asked why Iran “Terrorizes” its Gay cirizens, others? 

    4. All the Afformentioned questions from The American Ambassador appeared an “Attempt to Provoke War” with Iran! (Disclaimer: We are “Absolutely Not” Pro Iranianian. These Persians probably hold as much contempt for Blacks as anybody!). 

    5. Why is The U.S. Ambassador questioning Iran about “Terrorism”, when Black Males are being “Terrorized” all over the U.S. and The KKK, Klu Klux Klan, is growing in numbers? Why aren’t they on “No Fly List”? The FBI knows who and where they are! They exterminated “Black Panthers”! Fred Hampton, any questions?

    a. Nearly every so- called mainstream media was present at exchanges between Ambassadors! Why do they refuse to call The KKK a “Terrorist” Organization, Negro Reporters included, yet Trump wants war because entities in Iran “Terrorizes” citizens? 

    b. The U.S. Prison Industrial Complexes is nearly all Negro, yet they make- up less than 14% of the entire population! What about all the “Innocent” Blacks, include kids sentenced as adults to “Death”, mostly by majority “Caucasion” Juries? What is ‘Dat?

    6. In the U.S. Military, during Viet Nam, a majority of Blacks were “Infantry, Mechanics and Cooks” on “Front Lines”! Negiligable numbers served in a “Technical” MOS! If war is provoked with Iran, what’ll be different about who will be sacrificed?

    7. Beware “The Black Swan” and more “False Flag Rhetoric” war provoking incidents! Trump et al, are attempting a “Diversion” to the Comming Catastrophic “Economic Crisis” (A Great Tribulation!). When it’s over, if you’re still here, you’ll call Hurricane Katrina “a rain drizzle”! Mainstream Media types have completely capitulated when it comes “Citizen Terrorism” by the KKK, Chemtrails, TRI Pollution carrying poison “Loads” infecting “Land and Water” and yada…! Citizens are so Dumbed Down, Last Place Louisiana is a Live Movie, “The Matrix”, Big Time! Peace Out…

    Want to know what Harry may or may not comprehend about Megan? Negro “males” carry “Dominant” Melamin! Adam gave it to Eve not Eve to Adam! More?…

    LBRC- What your ‘Ignant and “Unstudied” Negro Apostate Preacher ain’t telling you? You have absolutely “NO EXCUSE” in The Eyes of The Most High!!! Why? Ans. You can do 1 min., “Simple Google Searches”/other to get answers! Questions? *The Most High told you “Knowledge Shall Increase” but men “Will Be Wiser and Weaker”! To Wit:  

    1. Who was The 1st Albino a Black Man and Woman Produced? Caucasions aka Whites can’t produce a Negro, so- called “Black” (Only in a Laboratory where DNA is “Artifically” manipulated, cloned and in “Most” cases if not all- “These Clones Cannot Reproduce Themselves”! Remember “Dolly The Sheep”, she was cloned but sterile!). To find the answer about “The 1st Albino” and why it was-

    a. Google/other “The Banned Book of Enoch” and look up “Noah and Methusla”!

    b. Satan and Fallen Angels were jealous of “The 1st Man and wanted his woman, Black! Guess what? Satan and his ilk still envy and “Murder” Blacks, especially males! If you reject Spiritual an “Academic” Study, embrace what you “believe”! Moving along…

    c. In 2019, who do most Negroes want to “Look Like”? Hints- They bleach their skin then flaunt it, poison nails then prepare food, they boast an “Un- Melaninated” look, they revere the look of ‘Massa and pass this ignorance on to kids and generations! ‘Ignants on their way to Hell and yada…, *They create orders to marry into, NOLA ‘ole 7th Ward so- called Creoles, any questions, just like The Dominican Republic! 

    2. The “Great Deception”? 

    a. In 2019, Bottom is Up and Up Down! lies are truth and truth lies!

    b. in 2019, Men want to look like women, and do, women want to be like men! Women dominate beta ‘Simp Men! “Arrogant and Rebellious” women are humbled at least in 2 ways- During Child Birth, and Natural once a month cycles! They attempt escape with operations and man’s “Harmone Therapy”! “He”, The Most High, will not be mocked”! You deceive “Self”!

    3. Speaking “Arrogance”, here’s “Langnippe”- *The Most High hates rebellion! *Enoch and other text tucked away and banned by The Vatican and others, complete stories touched on in “Edited” Bible Text. ‘Ignant Negro Apostates are clueless and “Only Believe what ‘Massa “Says”!! Just like with 2019, nothing new “Under The Sun”! “Negro Women” are more rebellious than ever! Everything is indicted a “Put Down”, yet they demonstrate everyday, they want to “Look Like”, a self put down, who? In 2019, Why are “they” so emphatuated with being “Blonde”, straight hair? Why are many Negro Men mating with “Real Blondes”? What made so- called White Women so attracted to Negro Male “Slaves” and submit? Why do White Women “Submit” and Negro Women refuse too? *Didn’t call no names, yet! Massa held  “The Worldly Resources”, and still do? Books Enoch, Jubilee, Giants are “Clear”, even “Dead Sea Scrolls/Cumran! The Book of Isiah gives Clues”! 

    a. “Clearly”, there are 2 versions of Genesis, King James too! “You read”! The 1st Adam hated rebellion as well! The Most High gave him a 2nd Woman “Disobedient” as well, because “Lilith” ran away and refused to return still influenced by Eve was not “Arrogant”, but she too was beguiled by Satan! With The 2nd Woman, Children became “Rainbows” with respect to “High and Low Melanin” but never “No Melanin”! Adam tried to committ suicide and take Eve with him, 2 women “Fool me once…”? Enter “Burnt Offerings” after a long story and forgiveness, you read The “Whole Account”! Caucasion Males forbade and hung Negro Males suspected of looking at or actually mating with women outside “Negro”, another “Social Construct”! “Negro Males” carry “Dominant Melanin”! “Adam gave Eve Melanin, Lilith? You read it and decide! 

    b. ***WE ARE ADVOCATING YOUR OWN ACADEMIC STUDY, MOST STUDY EVERYTHING ELSE, EVEN EVIL, RIGHT?*** The Most High Guides Truth! He would not have you ignorant! “Rote is not knowledge”!!! Peace Out…
    ***WHEN ALL IS FINALLY REVEALED! IT IS FINISHED***!!!

    Need Proof Africans were in The Americas long before 1619?

    LBRC- Proof Positive Africans Were in America/The Americas, Long Before 1619! Where did “Creole” come from (Negroes are Crazy Stupid and are Echo Chamber void Academic and Scientific Proof. Hear from “Real Scholars”!). ? As usual, Negroes have been Echo Chambers and Repeat what they hear, then run with it! 

    1. The following is what a “Scholar” presented to TED. She is so- called Caucasion and is “Multi- Lingual” plus have read “Diaries and Official Records” of Africans in The Americas long before Columbus. Before TED, she has presented and “Published” for “Peer Review”, what “Real” Scholars do, including “Numerous” Black Scholars! Negroes are trained to believe only what ‘Massa says (Willie Lynch). There are “Numerous Black Scholars”, yet, who do Negroes typically believe? In NOLA, we submitted “Scientific” easily varifiable info To a Negro Councilperson, regarding a “Sham” Project impacting primarily Blacks. What happened? This Negro sought out a counter view from “Suspected Racist”! You extrapolate this mentality! To get the TED Talk, Go here>>>

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EmLI6tuq22Y

    2. Our kids need The Truth! Increasingly, Conscious Black Parents and others are Home Schooling! 2019 is not the time to be ignorant! There are various Learning Styles. What is presented above can catapult you into other areas of “Proof”! Negroes live too many lies in a “Matrix” of Deceit and Ignorance! Only a few will enter 12 Gates! Practicly none who you know will and have deceived you! Ignorance now is “No Excuse”! The Most High has provided you “The Way to Escape”, like he promised! Doesn’t this Remind you about how Harriet Tubman had to nearly threaten Negroes on their journey to so- called freedom? 2019 Negroes have been devasted via ignorance. The Most High is not pleased and we’re sorry to say, will extract a Vengence “Across A Great Gulf Fixed”! ‘Dat is so Profound, it should cause you to drop where you stand, but you ain’t afraid, right? 

    Peace Out…

    btw- if you don’t know what TED is, don’t be alarmed. When you viewed a map for the 1st time, you didn’t comprehend Lattitude or Longitude!
