Hey Entrepreneur – You Need More Heads, Not More Hats

Posted in Blog, Unstoppable Business | 2 comments

Most entrepreneurs I work with fall toward the “Fluid and Responsive” end of the continuum, so the hats that they continually fight to make fit are scheduling, follow up, organization, replication, and delegation (which is both a mindset challenge and a natural traits challenge.)

What Do You Stand For – and Do You Have the Right to Defend It?

Posted in Blog, Unstoppable Business | 2 comments

When you, as an individual or an organization, put yourself in a position where you cannot afford to socially, contractually, legally, or ethically, control who you buy from and sell to, who you hire as a contractor or employee, who you partner with or otherwise associate with, you have abdicated your right and ability to control your reputation, your culture, and your brand.

How to See Someone’s True Colors – Shine a Little Light

Posted in Blog | 1 comment

It was Mother’s Day morning. A cool, lazy day shaping up to be sunny later on, when a lesson landed on my lawn. Our year-old puppy found it first. I let him out to do what he does, smiling to watch him. He’s a gangly teenager now, looking more like a half-grown wolf than the baby bear we named him for. He ambled out on long legs and huge paws, his shepherd ears moving forward and back like satellite dishes, taking in the morning sounds. Mishka’s never in a hurry to do his business and come back in, so when he nosed curiously at a spot in the grass I thought it was just a delay tactic.

Leading With My Left

What happens when you ignore a “pattern interrupt?” When that pattern interrupt is your body trying to tell you that something is amiss (I wrote about the pattern interrupt we call pain in the last post) you end up learning a few more lessons. As I mentioned in that post, the last 18 months have offered many personal and professional challenges. I got sick, I published one book and completed another. I lost some friends, I gained some amazing but challenging clients. I had pain… I kept working. None of those things are unconnected, of course. While many of my friends and clients either have published books or have a goal of doing so, I had never considered myself a Writer (a writer, sure, but that was just a job requirement – to be a Writer with a Capital W meant...

What is Your Pain Inviting You to Do?

You’ve probably heard of ‘pattern interrupts.” If not, no worries. It’s not a complicated concept. You use pattern interrupts every day, and probably never notice. Let’s say you have a pattern of chewing your thumbnail when you’re working on a difficult problem. So you put a bandage on that thumb so you’ll notice when you’re about to chew the nail. Boom! That interrupts your pattern, makes you aware of what you’re doing, and (theoretically at least) trains you out of that pattern. Or you notice you’re in a downward spiral of overwhelm and frustration. So you take a deep breath, go for a walk, call a buddy, whatever stops that pattern. That’s a pattern interrupt. But here’s the trick with pattern interrupts – you have to realize you’re in a pattern that needs interrupting! We all have patterns. And,...
