I finished a book this week called ,”Good to Great“. Although there are some great ideas and concepts in this book, the one that made the most impact on me was chapter 8 when the author discussed the FlyWheel. Here is a short video describing the flywheel and how it impacted me. Get a copy of the book to learn more or you can listen to it online at Youtube.

Greetings! Today I would like to share a famous quote by Michael Jordan and take just a few minutes to talk about it.
“To win you don’t have to be the best, but you do have to be willing to play. I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” –Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan was one of the all-time best basketball players and holds many records. However, he did not get there overnight. He spent many hours practicing every aspect of the game. He failed over and over and over again. It was those failures that caused him to be a winner. You can’t succeed if you don’t try. You can’t win if you are not willing to play.
Greetings! Today I would like to talk about taking action. I attended one of our regional training events last year and they talked about this subject. At that event the speaker said something that I have never forgotten and think about quite often.
How much do you think a cell phone weighs? I did a quick Google search and it weighs about five ounces. That means it does not take much strength to pick up your cell phone and use it. When you call your friends or family, does it hurt your muscles to make that call? Absolutely not! However, when it comes to your business, now how much does your cell phone weight? It feels like 100 pounds right? It seems like someone has taped a 100 pound weight to your phone so that it is impossible for you to pick it up and make a business call.
