Episode Notes:

  • Finding the destination is the most important step by far.
  • Different methods are like different tests for the same medical issues. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Let the answers marinate, then come back and make sure they still resonate with you.
  • Never Split the Difference, book on negotiating
  • Look at what it is, and then why it works.
  • Start from scratch on these methods to begin with, then later methods will ask you to look back at things you’ve done before.
  • First Method: Blank Canvas
    • What will you sacrifice and struggle for?
    • Foster care non-profit example
    • What hill are you willing to die on?
    • Tightrope analogy
    • How does “level of success” play into this?
    • It’s easy for small businesses to get focused on survival instead of focusing on the things that are motivating and get you out of bed in the morning.
    • Example: Google’s mission: organize all the world’s information.
    • Customers want a relationship with a business, buying into who they are and why they do what they do.
    • Layering of strategies with organizations and the people who start them and work at them.
    • What about younger people doing these methods?
      • Method 1 isn’t the best for you. Other methods will work better.
      • This method assumes that it’s all inside of you already, but it may not be.
