Rule 28: Identify key times and events

Famous Nigerian Comedian, Gbenga Adeyinka 1st 

A
cobra
has a lot of power, a lot of venom, a lot of energy.  But how often do you see one strike?  Rarely. 
They only use all that power and energy when it is:
·                   
Appropriate
·                   
Meaningful
·                   
Advantageous
·                   
Beneficial
·                   
Necessary
·                   
Important.

They
strike when in danger or when they need to feed.  The rest of the time you wouldn’t know they
were there. The rest of the time they don’t even look like cobras.  They don’t display their hood except when
they have to.  You will become a cobra.  There is no point using all your energy and
power when it ain’t necessary.  What you
have to do is identify the key times and events – then you strike.
A
cobra’s key times and events are fairly simply to identify threat and hunger.
But what are yours?  Much more difficult.

“THERE IS
NO POINT USING ALL YOUR ENERGY AND POWER WHEN IT AIN’T NECESSARY”.

There’s
not a lot of point burning all that midnight oil to produce a report that only
a couple of your colleagues get to see and is then forgotten.  Wait until it’s the big report that’s going
straight to the desk of the MD, that’s the one that needs the cobra’s striking force.
Of
course a lot of people wait for the key time – the office party, the exhibition
at Olympia, the Royal visit – and
then they completely and utterly cock it up. 
They get drunk or fluff their lines, they are late or sick or appear
with their flies undone or their tights tucked into the back of their knickers.

“There’s not a lot of
point burning all that midnight oil to produce a report that only a couple of
your colleagues get to see and is then forgotten.  Wait until it’s the big report that’s going
straight to the desk of the MD, that’s the one that needs the cobra’s striking
force”

And
key events?  The presentation is a good
one.  Get it right and it’s
remembered.  Get it wrong and it’s you
that is forgotten.
You
don’t get it wrong.  Identify these times
and events and shine at them.  Be a cobra
and strike when it is appropriate.
