Two Minute Drill: Building A Tower
This week Dr. Jay is bringing you the Two Minute Drill from the Willis Tower in Chicago. The Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower, is the third tallest building in the United States. What does it take to build one of the tallest buildings? Listen to this week’s TMD to hear how the elements of building a tower to withstand wind, rain, and snow translates to building a successful practice.
Three Important Elements
There are three important elements in constructing a tower. A vision, planning and engineering, and execution. These elements are also important in building a successful practice. Ask yourself,
- Do I have a clear vision? If not, what must be true to create one?
- Have I planned and executed that clear vision? If not, how do I reverse engineer from where I want to be and where I am right now
- What must be true to execute? Do I have the right people on the bus, in the right seats to help me get to my vision?
A vision is necessary to understand where you want to be and is the foundation of your building. You then need to create your blueprints and the plan of how exactly you are going to construct your building. Lastly, no one can do it on there own. It’s important that you surround yourself with the right people who will help you execute your plan.
If you have a clear vision, planned how you will execute that vision, and have the right people in the right seats you will end up building something remarkable.
