A naked lady hailed a taxi. She got into the taxi. The taxi driver looked her up and down.
Lady: Have you never seen a naked woman before?
Taxi driver: I have seen before.
Lady: Then, why are you looking me up and down for so long? Can we get moving, please.
Taxi driver: But, I have yet to see any evidence that you have money on you.
- Focus on your business.
- Know distractions when you see them.

How do you concentrate more on business … Integrity and values are critical here!
It’s rare for people to just say yes or no. We seem to need to qualify our responses to the point that we dilute and weaken our meanings. Try just saying yes or no without qualifying or explaining. It’s not easy, but it’s so powerful.
When you’re about to start a meeting or begin a conversation with someone, ask yourself;
“What do I want to say? What specific outcome do I want? How can I make myself easily understood?”
As Zig Ziglar says, “The person who will not stand for something will fall for anything.”
So … what has this to do with a naked lady hailing a taxi … a lot!
If the taxi driver’s primary reason for driving this cab was to be of REAL service … how he got paid should have not mattered. Our clue comes from the lady when she asks, “Can we get moving, please?”
I want you to think about this for a few minutes, okay! 😉
