When We’re Dead, It Will Be For A Long Time!

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”  Steve Jobs

Try Disruptive Innovation To Really Break Through in 2016

Trying to create a breakthrough in your by doing the same old stuff, perhaps with a new “paint show”, new shiny exterior. It’s time to create a whole new you, a whole new business model.

Build on what’s working!

ball-sweetspot

We’ve all heard these phrases in business and biz talk:

Throw a lot of sh*t against the wall and see what sticks
Build on what’s working
Double Down
Go All In

You haven’t heard mine from my ball playing/coaching background:

The best operational leaders know what opportunities that you can “drive out of the park” because you know you can hit them on the sweet spot (the perfect location on your bat for max. distance) and they are right in your zone (your capabilities) They jump on those pitches (opportunities) and rarely miss. Winners beget winners.

“When you’re growing your store, you don’t have to kill yourself trying 100 new things.
Just build on what’s already working and go from there.”

It’s something I always find myself thinking about. Should I go explore some new marketing frontier or should I just double down on something that already has traction?

What do you think? Comments are open.

Watch for another post soon on “Getting back to the basics of business and life”, a variation on the theme of you can’t improve in sports until you execute the fundamentals well every time. When sports are going so well, first thing always advised is “Get back to the basics”. Does that business and life too?
