Of course it’s a lot of money

The price to hire a world-class speaker?

Of course it’s a lot of money.

Simple law of attraction.

Quality and price are inexplicably linked, with rare exceptions.

Common sense isn’t common, again, with rare exceptions.

If it was common, there would be more thriving organizations in the world.

Knowing the theories isn’t enough to be world class.

Common sense is easily and abundantly accessible.

Why so much struggle?

Why so few solutions?

i fix this.

You get what you pay for, no?

Eliminating theory is to gain wisdom

Eliminating theory is to gain wisdom.

Analogous to being an arm-chair quarterback versus an actual quarterback.

Knowing life’s best quotes and timeless sayings is irrelevant if all we have is knowledge.

Execution is key.

Period.

Action demonstrates personal leadership more than any book full of theories

Dear Son, when you look back on these years, may you find the constant lessons you received from me remarkably helpful. And may you smile from the keen understanding that the lessons were from action, not theory.

Completing the packing yesterday for a trip that begins tomorrow means that today the traveler doesn’t need to worry about packing.

A brief, simple call yesterday, even though i have a Four Seasons Denver confirmation number, provides a peace of mind that was easy to guarantee.

Small actions demonstrate personal leadership more than any book full of theories.

Having the information we need to be an effective leader is rarely the issue. This issue almost exclusively is in our application.

Consider this potential mind binder…

Who’s the best leader you’ve had in your career?

Second best?

We often make excuses about our lack of peak performance because our leader does or doesn’t do extraordinarily beneficial things.

Epiphany: We should be the best leader we’ve ever had.

And we are in charge of doing extraordinarily beneficial things for our career.

The headwaters of great leadership begins with self motivation and self mastery.
