Positive/negative talk. Do you do this?
Do's and Don'ts
DON'T talk negatively.
DO go for clear, positive actionable ideas.
DO SCRIPT: Investment Manager: [Matter-of-fact] I live by these rules: don't leave things to the last minute; don't rest on your laurels; and don't underestimate the importance of planning.
DON'T SCRIPT: Investment Manager: [Humble] In our business, we try to prepare for the unexpected by looking at our exisiting plans and thinking 'how can we better what we already have'.
Being positive creates openess and broadens your sense of possibilities.
