"Experts"

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

- someone who can tell you exactly how it can not be done.

You have to know when to listen, and when not to.

Provide Adventure!

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Boring goals don’t motivate people – they bore them.

“OK everyone.  Our goals for this year are to grow by 7%….”

Yawn.  “zzzzzzzzzz”

“OK everyone!  We are going to do something that some who don’t know us will think is impossible!  We are going to _________________!!!”

“This is how…This is your part….What are your ideas?….This is how I am going to help you as the leader…..I’m ALL IN!”

Provide adventure to your team!

Blow up bureaucracy

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

bu reauc ra cy – any organization where action is obstructed by insistence on unnecessary procedures and red tape.

Have you created bureaucracy in your business as a knee jerk reaction to try to avoid mistakes?

Any dummy can ADD a step, a form, a checklist, or an approval process.  Keep doing that and your organization has transcended the problem by becoming the problem.

Stop the madness.  Blow it up.

Digitization

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Once a product or service or method is digitized it can be shared/delivered/distributed at lightning speed for free.

What does this mean for your business?

The Self Aware Entrepreneur

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Being an entrepreneur is a great way to learn about yourself, because it requires you to look at who you are and how you think often.  Those that don’t understand why they think how they do and that have done nothing to influence their thoughts or emotions, find themselves in a perpetual rut – with the same problems showing up over and over again.

Your business grows when you do.  To grow yourself, you have to know yourself.  A rational part of your mind must look at who you are mentally and emotionally and make assessments about where you are wrong, need improvement, help, and education.

Are you a self aware entrepreneur?

Persistence is half crap

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Did I get your attention?

We have been conditioned to think that when we struggle, if we just stay at it longer and harder that things will get better.  But what if we are doing it wrong?  What if we are going in the wrong direction?Will staying at it longer and harder help us then?  No.

We must notice the feedback the world is giving us – the results our approach deserves, and make changes.

What you must persist in is not doing it; but doing it/noticing/changing/doing it different/repeat. Persist in that cycle.

THEN persistence is something you can’t succceed without.

What are you persisting in?

The bottleneck is at the top of the bottle

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

The business will never outgrow the leader.  That’s why you need to keep learning, growing and developing yourself.

Your business grows when you do.

Building People

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

You can’t build a business without building people.  That’s how you build the business – build the people and the people build the business.

Are you building your people?

How will you know when you have won?

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

That’s what some people ask – When will you be done?  How much is enough?

It’s a good question if you think accumulation of trophies or material things is the game that is being played.  But success is a journey, not a destination.  A personal challenge to see how big of an impact or contribution you can make.  In this, it will never be over until we are satisfied, relent, or decide to do something else.

We win when we say we win.
