The right people at the right price

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

We all want to get the right people in the right seats.  That would be easy if we overpaid them.  But competitive forces prevent us from overpaying people, and raising our prices to afford it.

We need to get the right people at the right prices in the right seats.  Right?

Pain enough?

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

As much as we say we want our goals to come true, it’s not going to happen by wish or hope, and some of us are just too comfortable with how it is now.

For some of us, we have to get mad enough, disgusted enough, tired enough, and down enough to make the change happen. Pain can be useful – when we have enough of it.

If you do, make it work for you.  Change.

Watch the money!

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

You are the steward of $__________ that comes through your business each year.

What did you spend it all on?  It’s your job to spend less than you take in and make a profit.

If you don’t make a profit, and spend more than you take in – it’s over!

Dont mess around!  Look at what you are spending money on and make sure you are not wasting money or spending on things you don’t need!

Look.

Look!

Blueprint

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Like a blueprint is used to build a building, goals are used to build a business.

What is the medium term (2-3 year) outcome you are going for?

What is the plan for this month to get there?  

What are the steps you need to take now?

What is the very next step?

What do you need to do RIGHT NOW then?

Strive

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

We weren’t made to give up.  Bad and sad things happen to people when they give up.

How far should you go?  As far as you can.

How much should you do?  As much as you can.

What are you becoming?

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

It’s not what you get by leading this enterprise or group that makes you valuable.  It’s what you become in the process that makes you valuable.

What are you becoming?

Removing Constraints

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Even if some employees/departments/processes in your business are going well, if you have one area that is choking/constraining/poisoning the company, what is it?

Spending time removing constraints can be a bigger benefit than building on strengths.

What/who is your number one contraint?

It's hard to influence without a great reputation

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Leadership is the action and ability to influence.  To be the influence you want to be, you have to build a great reputation.

Have you done that?
