Success Thought of the Day – 11/3/20

If you are a praying person, do your knee-drills. If you meditate, then perhaps use that space. Whatever your method, make it a practice to look out towards your vision and the underlying principles you live by to guide you.

Seasons, scenes, screens, methods, people, structures, and many other things may change often and rapidly, but principles do not. Principles stand the test of time.

Success Thought of the Day – 11/2/20

Grand visions, strategies, and plans fail without excellent execution. Execution is stronger when engagement is stronger. Engagement is stronger when inclusion is stronger.

Share the vision, strategy, and plan with your teams, offering opportunities to contribute, and then seek to execute. In the absence of that, often static execution orders and tasks are distributed, denying people the chance to own the vision with you and contribute at the highest level.

This story provides such a valuable lesson … One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that was going on inside himself. He said, “My son, it is between 2 wolves. One is evil: Anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego… The other… Read More »Success Thought of the Day – 10/27/20

Popular opinion, or what is often presented as such :), can be misleading. Our inner-voice is powerful but can be overtaken by the amount of information that flows our way if we let it.

Raise your awareness, tune-in, and make conscious choices!

The good news is that unlike many other roles, this one does not require an application, election, appointment, or promotion.  This role was given to you at birth.  Accept, own it, and act on it.

Success Thought of the Day – 10/19/20

We are raised with the concept of providing the “right” answer.  It is how we made our way through early education.  It is rare to get lessons that point you to the journey’s value and connecting with your innermost self.  However, that is where the juice is. Take time to discover what gives you energy,… Read More »Success Thought of the Day – 10/19/20

Like the “intel inside” stickers on PCs, we each carry an invisible one that says “greatness inside.”

The only questions that remain are our willingness to tap into, cultivate, and use that greatness on purpose (with intent and alignment).

Take a moment today to pass this virtual sticker on to someone you care about!

Success Thought of the Day – 10/12/20

The adoption of new things is often not easy.  Thus, as a problem solver, it can take work to go from being viewed as “different” and “weird” to ”thought-leader” and “innovator.”  

It stands to reason why Innovators are typically depicted as 2.5% of the population on the diffusion curve, followed by early adopters, another 13.5%.

Stay committed to the problem you are called to fix, find your early adopters, and the rest (early majority – 34%, late majority – 34%, and laggards -16%) will soon line up.

Success Thought of the Day – 10/9/20

I struggled with the idea of failure for a long time.  In my childhood years, in my mind, success led to validation, and failure meant that you were not going to get it.  That translation can cause you to misinterpret and forsake opportunities.

A former manager once shared this story.  He recalls skiing one weekend, and as he was going down the mountain, people were flying past him, some successfully, but many also falling here and there.  However, he wasn’t falling at all. He was going nice, slow, and steady, controlling every movement carefully.  His instructor finally said to him, “hey, you need to pick up the pace.  Sure, you will fall now and then, but you’ll never learn additional techniques and grow muscle memory if you don’t challenge yourself.”

Fail fast, fail often, fail forward. 

Take chances to explore growth and learn.

When you observe the best teams operate, the team members complement each other in good times and, more importantly, support each other through the tough times. Tough times are inevitable, and how we show up for our teammates can make the difference.

It always seems impossible until it’s done. – Nelson Mandela

Success Thought of the Day – 9/29/20

The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom. – Osho
