Techniques for FIT

  • Don't be afraid to define the edges of the box for your people. Just be ready to let them explore every centimeter of it under bright light without your input. 
  • You know how video games let you hit RESET and try again? It's called Leveling Up. You can do that in your workday too. 
  • Small changes add up. Take a piece of paper and fold it 50 times. How high will it go? Imagine this: to the moon. (I know. Boom! Right?)
  • Are you doing too much on your own? Sir Edmund Hillary brought 400 people to help him summit Everest. What's your excuse?

Being Human - Most of the time

This week Kobe played his final NBA game. 

This is the guy that Bill Simmons had ranked as his #8 player of all time in 2009. (before championship #5, olympic gold medal #2 and before dropping 60 in a game where he took the most shots of any player in NBA history)

I was looking at the stats and it reminded me of the FIT principle that on the path to progress, you're going to regress. How do I know this?

Kobe. 26,200 career field goal attempts. Field goals made? 11,719. 

Lifetime 44.7% shooter. That's not even, "most of the time." 

Great reminder. Focus on the outcome. 

Random Stuff

Go ask your mother

I mentioned my new photos in a previous newsletter. They have been an endless source of entertainment for my family. 

When it came time for me to pick the pictures that I was going forward with, I asked my lovely bride if she wanted to join me. 

"Why do you need me? Isn't Charles going to be there? He's the pro," she said. 

"Well, yes, but don't you want to see giant pictures of me?" I asked.

"For what?" she replied. 

I mocked a stomach pain and said, "Don't you want to see my pretty face?"

Without missing a beat, she said, "If you need someone to do that, why don't you ask your mother?" 

Message delivered. Message received.
