Could This Change Your Life?

Be your own personal consultant

Disney Operations leaders
Jungle Jeff at the world-famous Jungle Cruise last night. This time of year it’s creatively renamed The Jingle Cruise.

Be your own personal consultant:

  • Identify performance gaps
  • Establish business case for bridging the gaps
  • Identify incremental outcomes from DIY or hiring outside
  • Establish business case for hiring help

The goal is to outsource your weaknesses and inefficiencies to experts and or purchase software to eliminate redundant and lower cost tasks.

Are you optimized for management or innovation?

Innovation obstacles
Are you heavily structured for management or innovation?

 

Do you see the time you use for becoming a category of one at work as an expense to be managed or as a non-negotiable investment?

Time management is about energy, not time

Time Management shouldn’t be driven by a to-do list. Time management needs to be driven by priorities.

Giving attention to your responsibilities is hard to do because it takes time, focus, and self-discipline.

Who’s got time for that?

Focus, discipline, and expending energy (not time) is what elevates my life from survival to thriving.

Time and energy rarely walk together as equals.

Mastering email

Email organization
Example of digital email folders.

 

Email organization
Example of digital email sub-folders within folders.

 

Challenged him late last night to spend today and tomorrow getting some personal organizational structure in place, particularly with email.

Without digital email folders, email becomes much more difficult to master.

My goal with email has evolved over 20 years and last year took a dramatic leap forward.

i do not go to bed until all three folders are empty:

  1. Inbox
  2. Deleted
  3. Sent

Am i serious? Yes.

Is it easy? No.

Am i able to do it? Yes, everyday for 13 months straight.

(Note, add three more months since this was written)

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Could This Change Your Life?

Well of course you are

Gapingvoid art
Metaphorically speaking, you need to want change as much as you want your next breath. From Gapingvoid Art.

 

You and your organization have major challenges.

You do not want an expensive solution.

Nothing you’ve tried so far has stuck.

You may have become numb to the drag of your survival and reaction mode.

Your organizational culture is you greatest ally or your biggest roadblock.

Right now and for the foreseeable future (and maybe forever), it’s a roadblock.

You think you need to fix your leadership.

You think you need to fix your customer service delivery.

There’s only one person who will insist you rethink those two obvious categories, plus the three other categories everyone ignores.

  1. Your pain will get worse before it will get better.
  2. Or, your pain will get worse and it will never get better (and never stay better).

These are your only two options.

Could you thrive living on the fringe?

Could you become the best in your category, or, could you become so amazing you create a new category – a category of one?

There’s no one else in the marketplace that will approach common cultural dysfunction issues with the same business karma.

i do not fail.

i can not do the work for you.

You will not succeed without me.

You have to be willing to be Cortes.

No guts, no glory.
