I never set out to be a survivor. My life's aspirations were pretty basic: become successful professionally, marry my soul mate, have two beautiful children and perhaps even retire early. Getting cancer certainly wasn’t on the list. But there I was, lying on the operating table the day of my surgery, shivering - not knowing how much longer I actually had to live and hoping that, when I opened my eyes, I would awaken from the nightmare. It didn’t happen. Cancer was a cold, hard reality that has certainly changed me. I look different, feel different and act different. Besides indelibly altering my outlook on life, cancer taught me hard-learned lessons on how to conduct business and realize success in a more significant and gratifying way.

 

Here are seven business lessons I learned from cancer that can help others in their own endeavors:

As the world can sometimes appear obsessed with criticizing workplace millennials, I recently sat down with my very first real-world boss, Karen Richards, and my very first real-world secretary, Julia Ann Poore, to chat about my effectiveness as a 22-year-old college graduate and novice salesperson in 1985.

Perfection is impossible, so stop expecting it PDF Print E-mail

Expecting perfection from yourself and others can be a serious problem. Looking for the perfect mate, ever-searching for a more perfect career, obsessing about the possibility or repetition of the perfect day – each can leave you forever disappointed and cut you off from your own happiness. That’s why, years ago, I developed a simple philosophy that I call, the 80 percent solution.

 

When I start to feel unhappy with some factor in my life, whether it’s a job, a relationship or an employee, I mentally list all of their strengths and weaknesses. Then I compare my estimation to my vision of perfection.
