Techniques for FIT

  • Try something new on yourself next week. A haircut, facial hair (for men), makeup, anything. Be a teen. 
  • What are you bringing to the day? As Jim Rohn says, "the field says, don't bring me your need, bring me your seed." Be a positive influence next week.
  • Take a mini-road trip without the aid of a communication device. There's something 2 hours away that's worth visiting. Get there. 
  • Think about something you wish you had accomplished by now and make it happen. It may be too late to be a guitar virtuoso, but you can still learn to appreciate great guitarists. Set yourself up for success.

Being Human - China Part 2

China is a communist country. 

It's one thing to hear it but it was another to experience it. There were numerous examples of intrusive government engineering and our guide had some humorous examples of what day to day life is like in a government controlled state. However, the evidence of a billion enslaved people was hard to find. For the most part, people seemed to be getting on with the day-to-day experience of living. 

It made me think of Benefit Corporations, often touted as a wave of the future. These special for-profit organizational structures that will include a positive impact on society, workers, the community, and the environment in addition to profit as a goal. Cast by one side as a form of normalized socialism and the other as a more human approach to capitalism, it seems like today's China can serve as an anecdote for how a b-corp will alternately work, as well as come up short of its objectives. 

As our great country continues to raise its standard of living at a pace that when I describe to kids that my friends and I grew up with at least some pieces of clothing our mother made, it generates confused looks and eye rolls, it's fun to consider what's next. I predict that as the robots come marching through the door, we're going to see an emphasis on being more human. Not only will it be reflected in day-to-day living, but in what our best and brightest look for in the corporations they work for and support. 

It's going to be good stuff. 

Random Stuff

I have a new article in AccountingToday about the first steps in transitioning to a value based pricing model.

I send it to a few contacts in the professional services industry because that's where most per-hour pricing takes place. Accountants, engineers, ad agencies, consultants. 

"Thanks for thinking of me. Great article," comes a reply. 

It's now a few days later and I receive a second note from the same person. 

"Wait, you wrote this?" 

The Chambers Pivot Industries Institute for Lead Generation Advancement

I'm breaking a rule I set for myself. 

I mentioned a few weeks back that I was using this list to gauge interest in a lead generation seminar that I would lead over one or two days this fall. The interest level I set as my minimum acceptable standard was 6 companies expressing interest. 

I have one. 

After being China, I've decided that's enough. I'll just have to work harder to get 12-18 people in the room so we can have a productive workshop. 

It's going to take place November 17-18 and it's going to be great. People will be amazed. It will be amazing. Attendees will walk away knowing how to take immediate action on increasing leads while dramatically lowering costs. The event will pay for itself almost immediately. 

As a subscriber, you'll get a special offer. Stay tuned.
