This idea of creating a dynamic team comes from Joe Namath or “Broadway Joe.” I had a chance to ask him about his playing days as the Super bowl III winning Quarterback for the New York Jets. And one comment he made about his playing days with the Jets was not his fame or winning, but that a “team will make you or break you!”
How important is it to have the right people on your side either as supporters or drivers as coaches or teammates. Andrew Carnegie knew the importance of the right people around you and it was engraved on his tomb stone, “Here lies a man who knew how to enlist the service of better men than himself.”
Creating a dynamic team is an investment of daily and weekly deposits. You must invest in the right relationships because people will follow you anywhere, if they know you, like you and trust you. The right people also will have an understanding of the vision and in essence take partial ownership of that vision as well.
Motivating the right people to action is not necessary because they have caught on to the vision themselves.
Organizations spend millions of dollars each year in motivation their employees, simply because the team isn’t dynamic or the vision hasn’t been casted in a way that draws them and compels them to move forward with you or without you.
Next, designing a plan that assures success could be the most difficult and rewarding for Big Thinkers and World Changers. I currently sit on the board of 3 NPO’s or non-profit organizations and the one thing that is almost vital after the first two points is a well crafted plan to succeed. “If you fail to plan, then you are planning to fail.”
Planning is a nightmare to the creative person’s mind because it deals with details and to those that are creative, death is in details. I speak from the perspective of a creative mind and know without detailing a plan I most assuredly set myself up for failure. There are those of you, who do not only love details but live for details, I applaud you! You who are hungry for details are my best friends, because it’s you who give a free spirited minded person, hope!
There are many tips and types of ways to plan. I won’t elaborate, but I will give you a suggestion. Do what feels comfortable to you. If it is to write out a five year plan, scratch some notes on a napkin, use your cell phone or tablet to keep records, write on a white board your notes or goals. Use whatever method you like. The important thing to understand is that you need to plan — plan some ideas, some goals, some time with a significant other, a vacation, a budget, a direction for a career or plan your life. I just want to tell you to have a plan whether big or small.
My personal favorite is to plan the next day the night before and then before I sleep envision my day and how it will go. Something amazing happens as I do that; no longer am I guessing what to do that day. I can move forward with confidence. And also be flexible. Yes, be flexible with your plans and with your life.
I pray this blesses you today-
