Techniques for FIT

  • Exercise that internal perspective muscle. There really are a billion people in China that don't care. 
  • Preach perspective to your people. Is the city's snow removal really that important if you don't live the Upper Peninsula? 
  • This month, attack a single annoyance. An office picture that needs reframing, a wall that needs repainting, a broken boardroom chair. In time, they'll stop cluttering your brain. 
  • When you're around someone expressing an opinion, make a game of listening to the language they use. Is it open or closed? Does it allow room for an opposing view to be held at the same time? 

Being Human - Saying No

Living in Omaha means that you develop a heightened awareness to particular information. The word Omaha, the color red, and anything attributed to famed investor Warren Buffett. 

Like this quote: “The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.”

If that's true, that really successful people say no to almost everything, then how to they do it? That piece of advice is missing, but I have a thought on it. 

When presented with a choice, really successful people ask themselves if they are willing to make the effort required to make a significant difference in the outcome.  They focus on what they can control and let go of the rest. 

Random Stuff

Book proposal update

I've been sending my book proposal out for a few months now. Here's what I've learned. 

It took 8 submissions to agents before I got enough feedback to change my first proposal. What started as The Human Being's Guide to Business Growth, has been narrowed to Everybody Sells. Similar content, but aimed at the sales section of a bookstore instead of the psychology section. 

That focus brings rejections in faster, but has also intensified the positive feedback from being tepid to almost sounding excited. I even mocked up a cover to help agents visualize the book.

 What I need now is social proof that people are interested. Like this:

"We’ve known Greg Chambers for five years. His ideas are thought provoking, and he challenges our team to stretch their comfort zone. I look forward to using his book with my team.” 

Obviously, that's made up, but you get the point. 

Send me a quick sentence or two along with whether or not to use your name/company in my proposal. 

In exchange, I'll send you a copy when it's done.
