Out work ’em

Disney leadership speaker
Are you on fire with what you get to do?

 

Out work ’em.

That’s what Tiger Woods told me.

Had the opportunity at my gym to ask Tiger a few questions. The first question, “What advice would you give to someone who wanted to be the best in the world at something?”

“Out work ’em.”

There you have it.

Context: Tiger Woods at one time was the best golfer the world had ever seen. He absolutely dominated the sport in a way that made the previous greats a distant second. And then there was the fiasco in his personal life and everything fell apart.

The thesis statement for how to transform your work

All you need is faith, trust and Pixie Dust.

 

The thesis statement for how to transform your work.

Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

 

If you work for someone else, you will never be compensated for what you are worth.

Wait, sorry, correction – you are paid what you’re worth – a corporation has an obligation to control costs.

Labor costs are managed by having yearly caps for salary increases.

So your 2-3% increase is all you’re worth in the corporate machine.

Suggestion: start your own enterprise and you will find out quickly (give it at least three years) how much you are worth.

PS. The only way to be successful in a sea of people trying to do exactly what you are trying to do – starting a business – is to be different than everyone else.

You can try to be the best in the world (unlikely) or you can try to be different.

There are a million ways to stand out – you simply have to invent yours.

Over-focusing is the only way this is possible.

Disney Brand Loyalty Book

Ever work for an organization that’s never satisfied?

Thomas Edison quote
Waiting for the hotel elevator at 6:15am yesterday.

 

Ever work for an organization that’s never satisfied?

Disney is like that.

Never.

Satisfied.

Spend a lifetime working at a place like that and it changes you.

Big time.

Why? How?

Because progress is never made by coasting.

You learn that something is only impossible until the first person does it.

Walt said a couple things that allow a relentlessly focused culture of excellence to thrive…

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

And…

While we should always take our work seriously, we should never take ourselves too seriously.
