What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is the anarchy hack. Now I don’t know about you guys, but from my experience, it feels like the universe is going absolutely bonkers.
Everything from COVID still going on to Russia invading a peaceful non-aggressive neighbor to the economy, to the political divide racism, and bigotry. To make all of these matters worse, one of my favorite treats of all time HOSTESS HOHOS these bad boys are actually getting smaller. Sometimes when I get them, they’re actually not even completely filled up. Now I’m creating a little levity around Hostess HoHos because if I was not joking around a bit, I would probably be crying my eyes out.
I am really curious, what are you guys doing to deal with all of this craziness that’s going on? When I thought about it for myself, I think the thing that I’m really working on these days to deal with all this craziness is kindness.
Kindness to myself. Today, I woke up as early, I went to the grocery store and bought myself some crab cakes. I’m going to make some crab cakes for dinner, and I’m going to have some HoHos for dessert. Kindness to others. Over the last several years, I have made a commitment to myself that whenever I think about doing something nice for someone, I’m just going to do it, I’m not going to overthink it.
Now, I actually fumbled a bit today at the store and I thought about doing something. Then it got all complicated in my head and I ended up not doing it, but at least I recognize it. In the future, I’m going to work on not doing that, to overcome that fumbling in my head, doing something nice for others in this crazy screwed-up world right now can actually improve our mental health and well-being. So that’s my anarchy hack, kindness.
I just want you to think about what yours is and I want you to share it with the rest of the Kaizenovate tribe. So, I know it’s crazy, but hang in there and share your anarchy hack with the tribe.
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. I am in South Florida at Cardone Capital, Cardone Enterprises, which is Grant Cardone’s multi-billion-dollar business. Today’s topic of conversation is imposter syndrome.
What the f*** am I doing here?
I’m here today because Jared Yellin, a buddy of mine, is a partner with Grant Cardone, and we taped a couple of shows. One is called “What’s on Your Napkin”, which is a show where startup entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to us. That was super fun, kind of like Shark Tank. The other was just a straight-up interview talking about my journey and where I’ve gone, from not knowing what I was going to do in my life when I was in college all the way through to chiropractic and my experience in chiropractic through to now being a tech entrepreneur.
It was just super fun. But I can tell you when I got here this morning, and I’m looking at this incredible building with all these signs of success, I’m like, what the f*** am I doing here? I don’t deserve to be here.
It’s funny, this kind of came up in the conversation. There are things that I needed to tap into to feel better about myself essentially. One was tapping into my past successes, and I’ve been pretty successful, not as successful as I’m going to be hopefully one day, but I’ve been pretty successful. I wanted to tap into things that I’ve done in the past just to give me a bit more confidence about being here. Then two of the things came up as it is related to just kind of how do you feel in the morning when you wake up and you’re like, should I even be doing this? The two other things that I talked about related to imposter syndrome were learning as much as I can. So, I’m going to come up against an obstacle, you know, watching a video, reading a book, talking to folks in my network was important. Then the third thing was patience, you know, being more patient with myself around the progress that I’m making.
Last week’s TMD was about not comparing myself to others, I reflect back on that this week. I’m not Grant Cardone. He is his superhuman. That’s great, but you know what, I guess I’m my superhuman in my way, and you are your superhuman in your way as well.
If you feel like sometimes you don’t belong, just tap into the things you’ve done well in the past, your successes; always strive to learn more because there’s more that we can all learn, and just be patient with yourself. You’re going to get there.
I had a great time. Have a great week y’all and I’ll talk to y’all next week.
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill! Today I am coming to you from the beautiful mountains in Deer Valley, Utah where I had a moment where I was actually alone on the slope and I had to pee. Today’s topic of conversation is testing the water.
Testing the Water
So, I have to pee and I thought maybe I can just go where those trees are and I’ll be fine. Nobody will see me. I can just do my business. It’s nature, you know, no big deal. Well, I took a step into that snow and what do you think happened? I sunk! I sunk pretty deep and I took another step and I sunk deeper and I said, holy S***, I’m in quick snow (like quicksand you know but snow). I quickly figured out a way to get out and realize that maybe I should have tested the water first with my pole.
You know, we do this in business, right? Like, as we build the next version of our app, we’re constantly testing with users, getting feedback; with our chiropractic offices, doing surveys to see how we can serve our patients better; with our team, to see how we can serve them better. We’re constantly researching and testing the waters.
So, next time I decide that I’m going to avoid the bathrooms in the lodges and, you know, pee outside in the great outdoors, maybe where nobody’s going to see me in those trees, I’m going to test the waters. I’m going to use my poll. I’m going to see how deep the snow is. I’m going to make sure that I don’t sink into mountain oblivion.
So, I encourage you, whether it’s your personal life or your professional life, to do small little tiny bets that test the waters to make sure that you’re moving in the right direction. So, that’s it from this beautiful mountain here in Deer Valley, Utah. That’s this week’s two-minute drill hope you guys are having a great week.
We have our webinars coming up this upcoming week, so I’m super excited about it. It is all about, mission, vision, and defining your brand. Make sure you save your seat.
I’m going to try not to kill myself or sink in any deep snow, and I’ll see y’all later in the week.
