I read the book people tools recently. I know I need a lot of improvement on people skills, so I at leastI should read more books.
I know there are some people will always coming to theparty late, just a little bit late. The author of the booktold a story of a person who could not held any positionsmore than 18 months when he tried to hire an assistant.And not to his surprise, this person left the company a few months, and since she had some other "good"opportunities.
We always heard the stories about someone who went thefirst start-up, then the company IPOed; 2nd one, 3rd oneIPOed as well. This person should have good sense of which company have a good future, to be acquired or IPOed.Sometimes, I think if he can manage some VC funds, he could do well too.
I used to have one borrower show did not want to sign the loan docs even when the loan was ready to closing since he"found" some other good rates. And I let him go to anotherbroker. And then 6 months later, he came back to me and asked me to do another loan for him. And I discussed his"habits" with him, and he promissed to stay and will complete the loan. And after the rate locked, and loanapproved, he got some "good" rates. Yes, everyone can getsome better rates when the rate went down. And the interesting part is that he came back the third time.But this time, I told him, sorry, I could not do your loan any more.
And here is the last words from the author: Petterns Persist.Persistent patterns persist persistently.
Have a good weekend.
