Stop Reacting To Problems

Are too many of your business decisions just reactions to a problem? Do you think the best decisions come from working that way? I don’t either. The question then is really this: Why are we working that way? And can we get beyond it?

Listen in as I talk about overcoming common barriers to a fulfilling business mindset. Get to a place where what you do profoundly excites you—to the very core of who you are.

In this episode, you will . . .

  • Hear if you’re “chasing energy”—and why that’s a problem
  • Confront the possibility that you’re looking for permission the same way you did as a child
  • Learn what “left of bang” and “leap-frogging” mean and how they’re useful
  • Discover how to become an authority more quickly
  • Hear why getting access to key players can be so powerful—and get tips for doing it
