Albert Einstein, Zig Ziglar, Martha C. Nussbaum, and Manufactured Housing
There are those who mistakenly think they don’t understand the value of an honest critique.
But the truth is that we all know the value of objective analysis, because we all rate things – be they spoken, written, expressed by 1 to 5 stars, social media likes, and the critiques one keeps to oneself.
The manufactured housing industry stands at the edge of great potential. That’s the logic from various third-party factoids found on Saturday’s Daily Business News report, linked below.
How does a manufactured housing industry professional, advocate or investor best tap into the potential of manufactured homes during this raging affordable housing crisis?
In part, by understanding reality.
The ideal balance for achieving that reality check is SWOT.
Part of SWOT is identifying threats and weaknesses. Those who only do cheer leading are arguably hobbling progress.
SWOT is a critical analysis, using a different phrasing.

The truth or evidence can be disturbing, but usually it’s uncomfortable because it’s misunderstood, or due to someone being in denial.
No good parent or coach let’s a child or team mate keep making the same mistakes without guidance. No good doctor would fail to warn a patient about risks to life or limb. All of those are examples of critiques.
The quotes from Martha C. Nussbaum, Albert Einstein, and Zig Ziglar are useful reality checks from respected minds, that come from a variety of disciplines.
For baseball or sports fans, Tony reminds me periodically of the Mickey Mantle quote shown.
When an industry that has as much potential as manufactured housing has today – and yet is still underperforming – there must to be objective reasons for it.
The quotes shown remind readers that critique is useful, necessary, and – surprisingly! – positive, but only when it is properly viewed and understood.
On MHProNews, we hunt for, curate, and share information that’s designed to inspire superior performance for those who tune in, objectively think matters through, and thus ‘get it.’
