Professional Format and Style”
How you do anything is how you do everything. T. Harv Eker (from Secrets of the Millionaire Mind)This Course is a mixture of learning a new format (business style) and adapting your English language skills to a different audience. Business communication relies equally on format (how you communicate) and content (what you say).

“How you do anything is how you do everything…” T. Harv Eker As it pertains to a professional atmosphere, this quote should be found at the core of a professional’s life. Eker really sparks a genuine statement through these words because they relay so much meaning for those in a professional work field. Okay, so excuse my AHA! Moment just now, but this is a quote that I wish I had learned years ago, it would have taken me farther with less useless travel along the way. I think that Eker’s quote is citing that lazy is as lazy does in so many words. There is nothing worse than a “professional” who carries themselves with the genius of a half-wit. Someone with all the potential for greatness in the world, could be considered a half-wit if he/she only aspires to temporary greatness. So, what I got out of the quote for this week and the material is that putting out front your best effort every single time will yield the highest results. Because if you will give only simple solutions to complex problems, it’s the same in which you will conduct your business and professional life. As for formatting, I offer the following: this found from a blogged article on the importance of formatting. I chose it (I wouldn’t often choose blog as a source of good literature, but in this case, it deemed itself worthy) because it’s written by a professor who cites logical, fact based thoughts on why formatting is a must. As I leave week’s two discussion here, I offer up my last thoughts on formatting in these words. Formatting is important because it gives us all a staunch and rigid way to conform. In this case, conformity is good. Conforming to format gives life to greater elements of research and readability. Finally, I say that this is important because if a requirement of formatting calls for a table of contents, index or standard margins, all documents look the same so that one may know where to find what they are looking for in the documents. Formatting gives us a way to be standard. However, in relation to Eker’s quote, “how you do anything is how you do everything” it gives us a way to exude supreme excellence throughout everything we produce.
