Today is the Tomorrow You Worried About Yesterday

Today is the Tomorrow You Worried about Yesterday.

Most of us have heard this expression before, but do you understand what it means. Think about it for a moment.

So you worried about yesterday and you made it through. You are worrying about today and you have made it this far today. You are also worrying about tomorrow, but you can’t do anything about tomorrow today. Or can you?  What do you need to do to prepare for tomorrow?

Your future is in your hands, so what do you see for yourself?

Need to empower yourself to live the life you want?

Take a step of faith, step out of your comfort zone and see what happens. I Did and I Am So Glad I Did!

YPI Consultants, LLC started as with a vision. Visit my web site, http://www.ypiconsultants.com, and see what happened when I stepped out of my comfort zone.

Basic Etiquette

Image

Today on “Image Talk Tuesday”, my blog talk radio show (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ypiconsultants/2013/03/26/image-talk), we discussed Basic Etiquette.

Dictionary.com defines etiquette as:

1.conventional requirements as to social behavior; proprieties of conduct as established in any class or community or for any occasion.
2.a prescribed or accepted code of usage in matters of ceremony,as at a court or in official or other formal observances.
3.the code of ethical behavior regarding professional practice or action among the members of a profession in their dealings with each other: medical etiquette.

Too often we take basic etiquette for granted or think it is not required. How wrong is that way of thinking? . Very wrong. Basic etiquette shows that you respect yourself and have respect for others. That is a big statement to make without speaking a word and can separate you from your competition when looking for a job, a promotion or closing a sale. Basic etiquette is simply having respect and using the words “Please”, “Thank you:, “Your welcome”, “May I be excused:, “Excuse me” and alike, you get my point. Seems so simple yet not considered essential. Etiquette is essential in today’s business environment and can make or break a deal. Understanding Professionalism and using your etiquette skills properly makes a big difference. Your language, tone, body language, attire and etiquette shows others Your level of Professionalism.

Do not let your lack of etiquette or professionalism keep you from reaching your goals.

Uncomfortable or unsure of your etiquette skills or your level of professionalism, contact Joann, Founder and President of YPI Consultants at joann@ypiconsultants or call 631-320-0217.

Professionalism….Is It Required?

As the Founder and President of YPI Consultants, LLC business owners and professionals have a level of expectation regarding my level of professionalism. Recently during several conversations with business owners and professionals it has been brought to my attention that our nation has been considered rude and unethical at (many) times. When I heard this I was immediately saddened, but I stopped to reflect where this impression may be derived. A flash of the many reality shows came to mind, the subtle  manners of the housewives of…, Survivor and the backstabbing methods of surviving the games and challenges, Jersey Shores and their cut throat hospitality along with their rude fun and antics and let’s not forget those looking for love and their mission to stir the pot of love with venomous cocktails on the beach.

If this is the impression we are sending across the globe, I think it is time to revisit the term Professionalism.

Professionalism…What is it?

This is the definition according to Merriam-Webster online dictionary(as a noun)

:1.  the conduct, aims, or qualities that characterize or mark a profession or a professional person(see 1professional).2. the following of a profession (as athletics) for gain or livelihood.

This is the definition from bing:Vlado Photo 34167yz22srweyd

pro·fes·sion·al·ism

 [ prō féshən’l ìzzəm ] 1.professional standards: the skill, competence, or character expected of a member of a highly trained profession 2. use of professionals: the use of professionals instead of amateurs.

Definition of PROFESSIONAL (as an adjective)

a : of, relating to, or characteristic of a profession

b : engaged in one of the learned professions

c (1) : characterized by or conforming to the technical or ethical standards of a profession (2) : exhibiting a courteous, conscientious, and generally businesslike manner in the workplace

We all, including myself, at some time have been less professional than expected, but we know the difference and therefore make better decision because of that knowledge and experience. Not to mention we are no longer the amateurs behaving in an unprofessional manner. I ask the next time you are about to loss your respect for another or act in an unprofessional manner, that you take a deep breath and ask yourself if you are the amateur or the professional.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
