Why Do Folks Want Cam Newton To Be A Good Loser?

I hated losing. In sport, in business. Strong competitive nature. It took an hour or more after the end of “battle”, so to speak, to come back down to normal and be easy to be with. So why are we holding Cam Newton to some standard, most of us don’t follow ourselves if we’ve been in competition.

Cam Newton stands tall when asked about walking out of his post-Super Bowl 50 press conference.

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.

Build on what’s working!

ball-sweetspot

We’ve all heard these phrases in business and biz talk:

Throw a lot of sh*t against the wall and see what sticks
Build on what’s working
Double Down
Go All In

You haven’t heard mine from my ball playing/coaching background:

The best operational leaders know what opportunities that you can “drive out of the park” because you know you can hit them on the sweet spot (the perfect location on your bat for max. distance) and they are right in your zone (your capabilities) They jump on those pitches (opportunities) and rarely miss. Winners beget winners.

“When you’re growing your store, you don’t have to kill yourself trying 100 new things.
Just build on what’s already working and go from there.”

It’s something I always find myself thinking about. Should I go explore some new marketing frontier or should I just double down on something that already has traction?

What do you think? Comments are open.

Watch for another post soon on “Getting back to the basics of business and life”, a variation on the theme of you can’t improve in sports until you execute the fundamentals well every time. When sports are going so well, first thing always advised is “Get back to the basics”. Does that business and life too?

We Believe The Future of Business Is Social Enterprises

RedAdair

RedAdairOne of my business heroes is a firefighter.  A very specialized fire fighter.   Red Adair was his name.  He capped and halted oil well fires around.   Oil well fires are very costly.  It’s a finite resource.  Oil is valuable and has a price per barrel.   Adair often still had a lot of questions and concern about his fees. His famous quote sticks in my mind:

“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do this job, wait until you hire an amateur”

Einstein is often quoted (I suspect perhaps only literally and not reflecting his nuanced meaning and understanding of what it is) as “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.  

One of the most difficult types of business to build is a social enterprises because it has a dual purpose and leaders and manager have to have at least two minds active at all times.  The team is rarely strong enough, even exhausted and the ideas are often weak and resources minimal.

This is our call to action to Social Enterprises everywhere to build a stronger team, reinforce and strengthen your mission and purpose, and your commitment.  This is our call to action to friends and supporters of social enterprises to encourage them to take the steps they need to succeed.

It is always about keeping in sight the mission and purpose of the enterprise, even when revenues must be paramount to allow the organization to continue.  Without achievement on the mission front, any success on the business side is just hollow.  We truly want social enterprises to succeed.

Mindset Important:

My experience leading a social enterprise and my observation of many others tells me starts with believing in yourself as an organization, believing in your mission, believing in your people. In many cases, mindset is the most appropriate starting point for business renewal and revitalization.

Social Enterprises Viable Future Business Model:

Personally, and as a consulting organization, we’re very bullish about the future of social enterprises as a viable business model in our market economies.  Even as a glass half full model, we need more enlightened entrepreneurs, more entrepreneurs with a vision for the world we all live in together, and more governments and regulatory authority that reward and encourage businesses with both a social mission and purpose that work and play in the competitive environment.

RempelGroup.com Offers Social Enterprises Pro Bono Growth Program

Are You Satisfied With Just Reaching The Goal Line-Your Target?

road-sky-clouds-cloudy-large

Today’s Business Leader Tip: From our Daily Email To Our Business Coaching Inner Circle.

Never Plan To Just Reach A Target or Goal And Be Satisfied. Motivate yourself, your team and your key advisors with targets that exceed the internal goals you’ve set. Aim Higher! Reach Further!

What are your key metrics? For each write down two numbers: your own and the ones you want to show publicly to others.

Look out into the distance and visualize the end zone goal line as your own numbers, and then see the end of the football field as the numbers you have publicly committed to.

people-field-crowd-sport

I coached baseball and softball at all levels from youth to elite international players.

We taught the players to run through first base at full speed and then make a turn later if it was a hit. We had them imagine a base five yards ahead as they ran towards the real base. Track and field sprinters would know this method too in order to maintain their highest speed at the finish line tape.
