The Intersection of Love and Talent

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Do you have a talent for your business, and the part you play in it right now?  Do you love it?

If the answer is yes to both, you’ll do really well in it and it doesn’t seem like work to you.

If the answer is no to either, what do you love to do?  Can you change the role you play (your job) to one you are talented in?

Intellectual Capital

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Today, economic value is created through intellectual capital – what you know.  It’s not just book smarts, it’s experience and breadth of what you know and understanding how the fields of information fit together in creating value.

There are those who have a hunger and curiosity for learning from study and experience (specifically the right things to create value), and those that stopped learning when they were handed their high school or college diploma.

Which are you?

Big rocks

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

It’s ok to leave smaller, easier, less important, tasks undone for as long as necessary, while you work on the less urgent but more-important-to-your-future tasks.  Achieving your organizational goals requires it.

What big rock are you working on today?

You can when you are

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

“I couldn’t be a good leader because I wasn’t one.”

Be what you want, now.

People Dynamics

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

They don’t teach it in schools or colleges, but it’s the most important part of leadership.

If you want to get people to work for you, work well together, get experience, stay as they get better, and build something that will last, you need to be good with people.  Employees, customers, the public, and strangers.

Are you good at “People Dynamics”?

No Coasting

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

You can only coast in one direction – downhill.

No coasting.

Fail fast, fail small

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Try it quick and see if it works before you spend a lot of time and money on it.

Save money and opportunity costs by learning fast.

If your going to have a train wreck, best to have it with a miniature train.

Hire the best to be the best

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Hiring carefully is nearly the single most important task a leader must ensure.  Take the time.  Hire the right person for the right seat.  

Have you hired carefully?  If not, when will you be more serious about it?

Compass Heading

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

If you keep going how you are going now, how will your business be in five years?

Is that where you want it to be?

Do you need to make a course correction now?

Vision Casting

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

It’s simple – get your people together and tell them what kind of company you want.  Tell them how it will look and perform and what customers will think.  Tell them what you need from them, and encourage them to share their ideas on how to get there.

What time is your meeting today?
