If Disney Ran Your Life

How well does your architecture serve you?

Just happened to notice a rocket launch a few minutes after it actually launched. Yesterday. Sitting at my desk.

Context: customer equals anyone that you serve, everyone in an organization serves others.

  1. Does your architecture help you deliver on what your customers want most?
  2. Does your architecture support your business strategy?
  3. Are workloads balanced among your leaders?
  4. Are employees getting the right amount of direction, not too much, not too little?
  5. Is there partnering and synergy across geographical and organizational boundaries?

i could go on, but these five define the point that there is much room for improvement.

John Maxwell Quote

Time Waits For No One
Time Waits For No One

Quote from John Maxwell, courtesy of Bob Stewart.

“Law of the Niche: People are most valuable where they add the most value.”

Duh, right?  No brainer.  Obvious. Get a clue. You can’t be serious.

In the hectic pace with which we travel through our days (weeks, months), we often miss the most basic of life’s truths.

This happens to me with our son.  I’ll get caught up in my work, and the next thing you know, the week has flown by and our son has done amazing things, but guess who hasn’t noticed?  Guess who wasn’t there to add a little coaching, a little fun, a little encouragement?

Guess what else?

Life is like this.  Always was, is now, and always will be. Whatever your level in your organization, you must find your own ways to stay engaged, to stay passionate.

I see so many people who are stuck.  Many of them leaders, responsible for inspiring and developing others, the way a parent does with children.

They get stuck managing their to-do list instead of inspiring and developing their people.  Just like a Parent.  Just like me.

But the days (weeks, months) fly by.

Our son can not wait for me to find the time.  His life marches on at an incredible pace. He will not slow down for me. I must find the way(s) to keep up with him.

Same is true as a leader, and as an employee who follows orders. Same as you. You must figure this out yourself and not wait.

Because if you don’t, what are you stuck with?
