Problems 'R' Us

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Our problem is we think we aren’t supposed to have problems. It’s all problems.  One damn thing after another.

A mature leader doesn’t processes these issues as “problems” and take them emotionally.  They have their internal gyroscope to keep them steady day in and day out as challenges come up. To them, these “problems” are just “leadership work”; what the leader is here for. 

- And that is what you are here for.  Right?

The Business Aritst

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Your business is a canvas.  It’s blank at first, then you add color and dimension and character.  

If you stand back and see what you’ve created, you can decide to paint over any part at anytime with a different color or shade or shape.

It’s not done until you say it’s done.

Do you see that you hold the palette and the brush?

Training – Who is the "source"?

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Who is training your people each week?  Do they really know what they are doing?  Are their intentions good (to build the skills of all team members to their highest potential for the job they are in)?  Do you need a different or additional source of training?

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.
