Mike Uses Flirt Tipping to Get VIP Treatment in Nightclub
All The Experts agree that having a Plan is good.
But sometimes you have to WAIT a While before you DECIDE what
to do. What ideas you INCLUDE in your Plan.
Let me Explain.
I recently watched John Cleese - of *Monty Python* Fame - Give a Talk to
He Quoted a Scientific Study of Genius (Award Winning) Biz Owner Architects
VS Average Architects.
The Study author had interviewed Members of both groups and Found 2 BIG
The Genius Group Differed in Only 2 Areas...
#1 - They Spend a LOT of their time PLAYING.
Doing all kinds of Silly, Stupid Stuff that has NOTHING to do with their jobs.
#2 - They Delayed and Procrastinated and dragged their Heels - as long as possible - BEFORE MAKING A DECISION.
John Cleese (Does this himself) and says he believes All New Ideas are
discovered as a Result of Spending Quiet Time - to allow your Unconscious to
Push NEW THOUGHTS to the surface of your mind.
PLAY facilitates the Unconscious.
Because Most People QUICKLY come to a decision - Because NOT Deciding.
Staying in LIMBO - is STRESSFUL. Most folks make Decision Way BEFORE
Thus freezing out any Possibility of Finding a New or Different Idea
that might Be Innovative and Creative and GREAT.
But what do you think about PLAYING with the GOLDEN RULE OF RECIPROCITY
Law of Success that Napoleon Hill talks about?
Increasing Your Pay-it-Forward PLAY TIME
Mike At The NightClub -
Went to a nightclub with a friend I hadn't seen in a VERY long time. We managed
to get a seat (lucky - the place was packed). Took ages for the first drinks to
Waitress brings them over.
Tip her $1. The corners of her mouth turn up slightly.
When the glasses were empty we signaled for her again. Got a refill. $1 tip.
Didn't have to signal her again. As soon as the glasses were empty she was over
to us. Another? Yep. $1 tip. Big smile )
Next round... she was over before we had finished out drinks. Another $1.
Then, it was like which of the waitresses was going to be the one to serve us.
Never had such good service in that place. Ever. Never had to wait for a drink or
to be served. Other people had to wait.
As for cost? Who cares? Nightclub prices are inflated anyway. What's an extra 50
cents per drink to be treated like royalty? Was well worth it.
Also, You can use this in any of your marketing - Glenn.
