Quick Hit: A Marriage With Purpose…

Quick Hit: A Marriage With Purpose…

Long before COVID became a household world, we penned an extension to our Success On Purpose series entitled, Marriage With Purpose.

Now, experts tell us all this social distancing, forced quarantine, and too much togetherness is causing a strain on marriages. Not a big surprise!

I know it might sound odd to take marriage advice from performance experts, but you should.

Please open your eyes, think with your brain, and consider a different approach to Happily Ever After.

Conviction-Driven Leadership: Knowledge Refines ~ Action Defines…

Conviction-Driven Leadership: Knowledge Refines ~ Action Defines…

In times when people are confused, frightened, and need direction your leadership matters. Not lip-service to the word, but the true essence of what it means to lead in times of uncertainty, fear, and forced change.

Charles Darwin said it best, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” Put another way, in this rapidly changing global economy, you either adapt or die.

We are in a time of unprecedented upheaval, a sudden and abrupt change to our way of life due to the hysteria surrounding the COVID19 virus. We must now quickly adapt or find our businesses decimated.

As CEO of The TQsmart family of sites I thought I would end this year with some advice for next year.

Business Success: The Empowerment Habit

Business Success: The Empowerment Habit

According to Chronos, “Empowerment entails creating an environment that fosters growth. For small businesses, empowerment can take many forms, each with the potential to enhance your organization’s efficiency and profitability, as well as your ability to work with others toward common goals. Sharing power might be hard at first, but focus on the long-term benefits of improving the function of all the various aspects of your business.”

A couple of times I skipped rule 1 and 2… resulting in total disaster.

The Small Biz Paradox

The Small Biz Paradox

The Small Biz Paradox…

The dilemma — you want to grow your small business to become a titan of industry.

The paradox is that your business cannot grow any bigger than its leaders.

It will never grow beyond your abilities because you simply will not let it.

In the end, the more you try to grow, the faster you will fail…

The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

Smarter Business Starts With a Smarter Strategy.

Today is a great time to think about the year ahead, what you must do to increase market share, attract new business, and build greater value.

That, of course is the desire.

But the reality is, most businesses will simply ignore the idea of creating an actual strategy, instead, attempting to throw a bunch of random tactics at the day to day issues every business faces.

Which is why the business failure rate continues to ravage the hopes and dreams of entrepreneurs everywhere.

Will Artificial Intelligence be Your Friend or Foe?

Billions Are Being Spent To Make Machines Smarter… But Who’s Going to Make You Smarter Than a Machine?

We have become a “survival of the smartest” global economy where human capital needs to be retooled, reimagined, and reinvented. And we need to do it quickly.

Put simply, we need to make people — not just machines — smarter about what they think and do each day — at work and at home.

To achieve this, The World Excellence Project has developed and deployed a smart new App designed to make you smarter in the moment.

Just 4 Words Will Put Resolve in Your Resolutions…

Just 4 Words Will Put Resolve in Your Resolutions…

This is something of a BAD news, GOOD news story…

The bad news is that 80% of all resolutions fail by the second week of February. Around 50% bite the dust by January 12th!

The good news is that you can turn THIS year into your best year ever by simply putting more RESOLVE in your resolutions.

There is no reason for you to work your tail off and still come up short this year. But to do this, you will need to take a slightly different approach, and employ a more consistent course of action.

We are all creatures of habit…

The truth is, habits you created 1-5-10 years ago are controlling your life today. This is as obvious as it is well documented.

Passion Turns The Ordinary Into Extraordinary…

Passion Turns The Ordinary Into Extraordinary…

I always love to read this quote by Maya Angelou around the new year, as it sums up a hundred pages of thoughts in a single sentence, “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

Isn’t this what we all want?

A life filled with passion and purpose?

A life of compassion and hope?

To thrive with style?!

Of course it is!

Think & Grow Rich: The Power of a Single Thought

Think & Grow Rich: The Power of a Single Thought

The App Napoleon Hill Would Have Loved and Wanted You To Have!

In 1937, Dr. Napoleon Hill penned a book that would sell millions of copies and become the touchstone for self-improvement readers everywhere.

He titled it, Think and Grow Rich… a book designed to connect the dots between our imagination… our ideas… the thoughts we think… and our ultimate success in life.

Around the same time, a young scientist named Albert Einstein opined that, “Education is not merely the learning of facts. But rather, education is training the mind to think.”

WOW — what a great idea — a system to get us to think and grow rich.

Kindness Is Essential to Your Success…

We you think of a truly powerful and successful person, what do you see?

Drive, for sure.

Working smarts?

Mastery of success-essential skills?

Always operates out of a higher sense of passion and purpose?

Is generous, appreciative and thankful for what they have now, not just in the pursuit of more?

Emotionally committed to helping others thrive?

Financial savvy?

A person who inspires hope in others… a powerful compassionate leader?

Someday my family will enjoy the fruits of all my hopes and dreams.

Of course, the list is endless… because our imaginations are boundless.

Hence our continued struggle to field our dreams against the backdrop of an inherently unjust and unfair world.

Authenticity: Know Yourself First…

Authenticity: Know Yourself First…

Authenticity…

When we created Success on Purpose the idea of Natural Mission and Authentic Direction in life was a big question mark.

We see the finding authenticity to be a connection issue.

Connection with your VALUES…

Connection with your VISION…

Connection with your ROLES…

If you live your values while pursuing your visions in all the various areas of your life, you have Authentic Direction.

If you live someone else’s vision… or someone else’s values… you will certainly have problems in finding Authentic Roles.

Leadership…

Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people.

In the transformational leadership model, leaders set direction and help themselves and others to do the right thing to move forward.

To do this they create an inspiring vision, and then motivate and inspire others to reach that vision.

Commitment: The Power of Greatness Within

Commitment: The Power of Greatness Within

Greatness…

We all know that to achieve extraordinary results we must be absolutely committed to both, the big WHY behind our actions as well as the expected RESULTS.

Commitment is one of those giant words we see as instrumental to the pursuit of both success and happiness.

It is very much a “believing is seeing” issue.

In TQ-speak, commitment is the 5th C in the 6 C’s of success as found in Success On Purpose:
Clarity of VALUES leads to clarity of VISION…

Clarity of VISION leads to clarity of ROLES…

Clarity of ROLES leads to the absolute CONVICTION that what you are about to do is the RIGHT thing to be doing…

Which leads to the unconditional COMMITMENT to doing whatever is required to achieve the vision…

In Search of Honor…

What does the word HONOR mean to you?

Most people think of honor in the same light as respect.

But for most of us, the word has a much deeper meaning, especially if you served in the military.

THINK about the word in context to the ever-changing story of your life.
