William Edwards Deming, a statistician and professor, developed a theory of management based on fourteen points that he considered critical for management to become transformational and thus lead their business to greater success. Let’s start this journey together, now, as we discuss Deming’s points and see how they may relate to you and your leadership style and business goals. Point One: Create constancy of purpose toward improvement of product and service, with the aim to become competitive and to stay in business, and to provide jobs.
Deming also advocates that you focus your business on being competitive and providing jobs.
As we continue this journey through Deming’s fourteen points, we’ll see how each point can easily stand on its own, while at the same time often reinforcing one another—much like management and staff have their own jobs to do but must work together to keep driving improvement forward to increase productivity.
Now, this is what I hope is the real reason: that some of what I share on Twitter – re-tweets of great thoughts by interesting friends I’ve made, links to fascinating stuff I find online, and at least occasionally my own insights – resonate with a whole bunch of people. There’s a much more prosaic answer to the question, however; something that has nothing at all to do with the content I share.
Do you want to know how I’ve applied this quote to gather notoriety in social media – especially in my favorite medium, Twitter? Every day for the past four years, weekends and holidays included, I wake up at 5am and I tend my social garden for two hours while I drink coffee, eat breakfast and gradually wipe the cobwebs from my eyes and my voice. This is probably the most important point I can share about success in any endeavor, from social media to careers, from sports to canasta. The early morning is a great time to check into Tweepi, to fill my Buffer with good posts, to say “hi” to friends on Twitter and to manage my Triberr feeds. Over the past four years, I’ve put in many of the 10,000 hours Malcolm Gladwell wrote about in “Outliers”.

So that is my really simple, but completely frank answer to the question I opened with: “How did you get so many Twitter followers?” I chose my purpose and I remain constant at pursuing it. The good news is that even knowing how to succeed, few people will discipline themselves enough to achieve it.
Great post Ted, you articulated what I hope I try to do, being a fellow lark I find the early mornings fantastic for connecting learning.
Ted, excellent thoughts – with all of the 140 character content hitting us, it is easy to get side-tracked. Sign up HERE and receiveThe Switch and Shift Change Playbook, by Shawn Murphy, as our thanks to you! He published his ideas in a book titled “Out of the Crisis” and I recommend you get a copy for reference. To truly improve our competitiveness, I feel we must recognize the value our staff bring to our business, and concentrate on allowing them to self-improve. I have an awful lot of my twitter followers for one incredibly simple but absolutely essential reason. My writing brain wakes up before my speaking brain, so it’s a good time to craft a blog post. I also take this time to do my LinkedIn linking, my Google Plus plussing, and once in a great while… my Facebook booking.
This is a must-read book about how some people become very successful at their area of endeavor. So even now that the cat is out of the bag, you’re still likely to have very little competition. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.

His thoughts and published works have led to the development of systems like Total Quality Management, Six Sigma, and Lean. People—not the thing we produce or the service we provide—are at the core of our operation. Staff should be empowered to make positive changes to improve their working environment and better their product or service.  And there should never be any doubt that the company fully supports continuous improvement efforts.
And this is probably the most important point I can share about success in any endeavor, from social media to careers, from sports to canasta. If I’m traveling, I write it on a 3×5 card and stick it up over my borrowed workspace, or on my hotel room mirror. Basically, 5 to 7am is my time to put in the efforts a person should if he’s serious about building social media connections for the long haul. Most people don’t like doing a fairly rote behavior even on weekends, and family holidays, and while on vacation, for 1,443 days in a row, (in my case), and counting. Deming’s work is not a blueprint for success, ready to be copied, but his fourteen points are a starting point for discussion, consideration and contemplation when it comes time for you to begin your journey of management transformation and improvement.
Without our employees, nothing is made, nothing is sold, and no amount of marketing nor motivational speeches will change that – our staff make our business. Even if you don’t care for history, or don’t respect his legacy at all, perhaps let his quote sink in and live it, every single day of your life. She gets up at 5 every single morning and spends the first two hours of her day searching for new submission opportunities and then writing, writing, writing.
