Let's get right into it. One of the things that happens in my business, because we offer so much individual coaching with all of our programs, is people will constantly call me and say,
Hey, everybody. Charlie Hauck back again for another Fast Tip Friday. When you do 50 of these a year, whatever the number is, sometimes it's a stretch to find the content, but we'll give it a shot. This week, it's not going to be long, but I hope it makes sense to you. It makes sense to me and I'm the king of everything, so let's go with it!
This week, I've got another crazy idea for you... and it just applies to so many things and I think it's a lesson or a saying that we've all heard many times in our lives that tries to get us to really focus on the right thing to do or the right thing to believe in.

If you are near my age 60+ that line might remind you of the classic television show “Dragnet.” Sgt. Joe Friday, the lead detective, was constantly reminding the people (suspects, witnesses, victims) that he interviewed to just give him the facts, nothing but the facts while he interviewed them. Friday didn’t want any of the emotional debris these people would try to add to their account of what happened. “Just the facts” was all Friday could work with, and none of the emotions could change those facts.
I can’t claim the original thought on this powerful acronym, but I admit I use it quite often in Growth Dynamics’ sales training programs.
