The usual cycle is this:

first, be naturally kind and good-natured,  then when things get from bad to worse, apply thick-face-black-heart (which in some instances could also mean apply thick-heart-black-face), and finally when filled with remorse, return to be naturally kind and good-natured again.

Since one already knows this cycle will usually happen, why not jump from step 1 to step 3 and bypass step 2?

In other words, no thick-face-black-heart.  Not even thick-heart-black-face.

What am I doing for a living?

Hmmm, I am a chef specializing in French cuisine and wine tasting, just kidding

I am helping those big companies to run their businesses, to keep them healthy and in good shape and not over weight. But, have no idea how to run a ma&pa shop, what a pity huh!

in my opinion, keep the thick face but replace the black heart with a business concept called

"Win/Win"

where both party or all of the participants enjoy positive and profitable outcomes

youre going to have to work on the indecisive part because thats what business owners do all time

Making decisions!

the key to business success lies in the competency of the owner in becoming a "compass"

employees or managers will at times propose to you 2 ideas or strategies that can be totally apart from each other

which way will you lead them?
"It ain't no thang but a chicken wing."

Thank you, i_smg...

Win-Win should be deserved on the top of my wish list, but how?

Decision, decision and decision, Hmmm, I knew how.

You see, we have been using the decision aid software tools to help those multinational giants to make the final call, at least to show them the output of what these intelligent tools thinkbefore they put pen on paper.

Of course, you don't need those sophisticated tools for a ma&pa shop.
