LAST WEEKS Action Challenges: a. Did you greet people with an excitement and joy, like you had just won the lottery? b. Did you catch your self going down a familiar negative thought process and quickly take the alternate positive route?
I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING* Ok well that’s not entirely true. I do have a lot of experience that has been validated by empirical evidence in-terms of what works and what does not work. BUT I have come to the realisation that there are significantly more things that I do not know than I know….and it is what you don’t know that you don’t know that will get you. Cause you don’t know it! (sounds a bit like what a group of school children would be chanting at each other followed by the mandatory na na, na, na na…)
Here is an example of this. A business Consultant/Coach of mine is friends with Richard Branson, upon visiting him at his island they go paddle boarding and while on the water Branson says to him ok “teach me something”, “I want to learn something new today”. You would think that a guy who has achieved that level of success could probably do the teaching but instead has the curiosity and wants to learn something.
It is probably that attitude that has contributed to his success, if Richard Branson can still learn things, so can I.
I am in the process of hiring a person/company for some services related to setting up a CRM/ERP…. I was a bit torn between hiring an expert or someone that I really liked and know that has great potential. Here is a video of Marc Cuban answering some business related questions that I found and just by chance he addresses the very question that I had in the first 60 seconds.
Moral of the story is that the information is actually readily available, just be open and look for it.
This weeks Action Challenge is a fun one! I want you to get 100% clarification on something that you are not sure about or look for something that you did not know that you did not know related to your business. Or last one, be able to clearly calculate your Net Profit.
