Results Are Guaranteed. Conclusions and Perceptions Aren’t

Results Are Guaranteed. Conclusions and Perceptions Aren’t

This past month, let alone the beginning quarters of 2016 has resulted in many observations, realizations and A-Ha moments.
Moments that have resulted in me determining the importance of life and things we can and cannot control.

Which leads me to another A-ha moment.
Business has been defined successful when results are met and profitability is achieved. Furthermore, a business’ survival is based solely on people, who work hard to achieve results which benefits the organization in profitability, brand awareness and success.

Yet, the challenge I found is that RESULTS are typically an OUTCOME from our created CONCLUSIONS and PERCEPTIONS.

Think about it, we work hard everyday – life and in business. We are formed to follow process, policies, regulations, targets etc…but in practicing those elements, the results are nothing more than the idle position and location of those processes at any given time. But what we can dissect from these policies and procedures are this:
1. How efficient, effective and accurate we are with the process, policies and regulations are typically made from our own lenses. We always believe we do a damn good job, where others’ perception could be different.
2. That perception from our lenses vs others is based on; what works and what doesn’t work —> which leads to a successful or unsuccessful outcome.

My A-Ha Moment: Pure & true results will always indicate the end position rather than releasing a feeling about that position. So if we were to follow each policy and procedure – it would indicate a successful term at the end of everything. However, the actual feeling of success could be dependent upon the perceptions and conclusions made through our own lenses’ and the eyes of others. Therefore, enforcing the fact that the result is always guaranteed. But the released feeling is quite opposite.

Hopefully this makes sense. If not, we can discuss at some point. Nevertheless, I hope you will be sociable and share.

I believe in happy ever afters, whether they’re in books or life. I believe that the world is an occasional scary place, one where we need to carve out caves of safety. I believe in the power of the human spirit. I believe it’s a sin to be bored in a world filled with information, beauty, and fascinating things around us. I believe in making a positive difference – everyday – in the lives of everyone I meet. No judgements. No ego. No expectations. Making a difference in just ONE life means that ONE life made better. God Bless.

I first met Asif on Twitter. I had just walked away from one of the worst car shopping experiences I'd ever had (a Kia dealership) and *tweeted* it. Very soon after I received a tweet back from this "Asif Premji" guy. "Sorry to hear your car buying experience wasn't more positive - what are you looking for?" 

This was the first of many messages which has lead to not only the purchase (six months later) of a new Honda Civic Si for my wife but a professional and loyal relationship with Asif and his team. 

There is outstanding customer experience and then there is the unexpected and appreciated *Asif* level of customer experience. 

I would not hesitate to do or refer business with Asif and his team. By far one of the most enjoyable and confident car buying experiences in my lifetime. 

At Okotoks Honda I witnessed, "I actually give a $&@# about my customer", not just in words but in every day actions, long before I purchased a care and ever since. This is what I would call, Integrity in ACTION. It's not about the one off sale for them, Asif and his team truly understand the lifetime value of a single customer. 

If you're going to buy a Honda, it's well worth the trip to Okotoks and buy from anyone on Asif's team
