No really

How do we make this a reality?

Try to get someone at Disney to tell you it is impossible. Go ahead, i can wait. (lol)

Everyone deserves a great nurse and every great nurse deserves a great life.

Can everyone in your organization articulate the essence of why your organization exists?

What if they could?

What Are You Waiting For?

Being busy lets you do this one thing to literal perfection

interesting signs in Philadelphia
Random sign caught my eye.

 

Being busy lets you do this one thing to literal perfection.

Hide from your mission and purpose in life.

First, you refuse to be clear, concise, and compelling about your purpose.

Second, (insidiously) without clarity, you hide from your real work – the risky stuff that may not work – the stuff that makes others uncomfortable – but if it worked, it would triumphantly change everything.

Because you aren’t clear, you and everyone else, can’t tell what success looks like.

Hiding.

Safe.

Can’t be a failure, right?

Can’t see the bullseye, so missing it goes unnoticed.

Safe.

We like safe.

Safety adds insult to injury.

Without clarity, you lose all sense of urgency.

Without urgency, distraction trumps focus.

Without focus and urgency, being busy comforts you.

And exhausts you.

And everyone around you.

Why being a high achiever isn’t enough

Highline Trail
Highline Trail, mid-morning July 30, 2017. Visited three times in 2017. Five trips planned for 2018. High achiever? Definitely. On a mission.

 

High achiever?

It’s never enough to be good at your job.

To be a leader, you have to be on a mission.

Dear Son

The basics of your business identity

Business tagline
Met the owner two days ago. Raising the Standard is Jaque’s DNA.

 

Small business story
Jaque started with one push mower. Now he only does upscale contracts.

 

The basics.

Vision.

Mission.

Story.

Jaque told me, “Eighty percent of my revenue comes from 20% of my clients. Your neighbor is one of my top clients.”

Note: My neighbor is in real estate and uses Jaque’s company commercially, and now, also personally.

Yesterday was only an 11 hour day

WTC 911 memorial

911 Memorial preview

Yesterday was only an 11 hour day. The widower sitting next to me worked long and hard for ATT. He either didn’t understand the question, or couldn’t answer it transparently. Asked him what advice he’d give his grown children from the broken dream he is trying to let go of.

The day was much longer than 11 hours… a late dinner near ground zero…
