Go for the gold...


Winning, or being the best at anything, is hard: it takes work and discipline. Like opening hotels: the teams of employees I worked with on those launches loved it and talk about it all the time. Like the workshops my partner and I conduct: our clients spend time in them discovering how to be more effective managers. Like completing a strategic plan: business leaders that do that come away with greater clarity about where they’re going. Like being the best in your business: a friend of mine works tirelessly to be both a great business person and human being and he outpaces his competition. Like building a dream home: one of my neighbors here at the Lake is doing that by himself and designing in all the things he wants. These and so many other endeavors occur every day and the people doing them well are always strong and methodical: strong in their beliefs and intent, and methodical in following a strict plan. That’s what it takes to be a champion, or great, today.
