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.
In this week’s TMD I am coming to you from Pensacola Beach, Florida. Since I am taping on New Year’s Day, today’s topic of conversation is about setting 2022 goals.
Clarity Equals Success!
I have to admit that I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. I am a big fan of setting written goals.
The way we like to do it at Kaizo and Kaizenovate is to set the goal, the big audacious goal, and break it down into quarterly rocks. So, every 90 days we build towards that goal we want to achieve for the year.
Within those 90-day rocks ask three to five HOWs. For instance, if we want to increase our new patients at Kaizo by 20%, howare we going to do that? The answer may be, I am going to build a sales and marketing strategy. And howare you going to do that? I am going to set up a meeting with my team and ask everybody to bring their best three ideas to build the sales and marketing strategy to increase new patients by 20%.
I just asked HOW a few times but you can drill even deeper. When your team gets together and you set your goals for 2022, make sure that you ask them, they ask themselves, and you ask yourself the three to five HOWs. When you do that, you will get very clear on howyou are going to accomplish a goal. Clarity equals success!
It’s going to be a great year!

Two Minute Drill: I Let My Emotions Get The Best of Me
Today’s topic of conversation is fallibility, self-awareness, and vulnerability. So Friday I had kind of a rough day. Listen to this week’s Two Minute Drill to hear what happened, how I handled it, and what I learned.
Fallibility, self-awareness, and vulnerability
So Friday I had kind of a rough day. I had a fair number of things that were not going the way I would like them to go. Toward the end of the day, an email came across my desk and I reached out to one of my leaders and I was definitely not my best self. I let my emotions get the best of me and I was fallible.
I didn’t handle the conversation well at all.
The self-awareness came in the middle of the conversation where I realized I am not doing a very good job and because I’m not doing a very good job, I can’t really help my leader very well. And so, I became self-aware and at that point, I did end up apologizing. I think that was positive because this person understood that I recognized I wasn’t being my best self and at the same time I still felt bad even after the conversation.
So, what is the one thing I can do moving forward to make sure that I don’t go down that road again? The main thing is to make sure that I don’t act immediately. My tendency is to do that, and I’ve been fairly good over the years at preventing that from happening but on Friday when all the sh*t was hitting the fan I just didn’t do it very well.
So, I think when it comes to any help this can provide you, I would say make yourself aware of those times when you react in not the best way. Find ways to be more aware of them and then if you need to, say you’re sorry because people for the most part (even though sometimes they won’t forget) they will forgive.
So fallibility, self-awareness, and vulnerability, that’s the message for today’s TMD. I’m going to work on being a better person and a better leader this week. What are you going to work on this week? Head over to our Facebook page and let us know.
Don’t forget, we are hosting a webinar today, December the 14 at 1:30 PM Eastern time. Sign up and reserve your spot to check it out so you can position yourself for the greatest amount of success in 2022.
Today’s topic of conversation is all about organizational planning for success. In this week’s TMD I’m asking you three important questions to gain traction and move your practice forward in 2022.
The three W’s For Your 2022 Success
First, I’m going to ask you to ask yourself three important questions.
Question number one: What is the one most important thing I learned from 2021 as it relates to moving my practice forward? Question number two: What’s the one most important thing I must get done in 2022 to call it is a success? Question number three: What are the resources that I am going to need, or are required, in order for me to achieve this one most important thing in 2022?
That is step number one. Make sure to answer those questions.
Step number two is about reviewing the answers with your team in an annual planning session meeting.
Finally, step number three is ensuring that you’ve got regular meetings. Same time, same day, same agenda throughout the year 2022. I can’t tell you the number of chiropractors that I have spoken to over the years that don’t do regular meetings with their teams. I know sometimes meetings can be a waste of time, but when they’re done the right way, they can be incredibly impactful and give you traction to move your practice forward.
I will be talking about this in much greater detail on my webinar on December the 14th at 1:30 PM Eastern time. Sign up and reserve your spot to check it out so you can position yourself for the greatest amount of success in 2022.

Two Minute Drill: Lessons From the NCAA Championship
The NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game last night is the inspiration for this week’s Two Minute Drill with Dr. Jay. Watch this week’s TMD to hear what stood out as lessons for great leaders during the Championship game
A few things stood out while watching the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game.
The Baylor coach, Scott Drew, was first hired by Baylor in 2003. That means it took him 18 years to win a championship. What lesson can we as leaders take from this? Sometimes success is a marathon and not a sprint. Winning championships doesn’t happen overnight. Moving into Q2 of 2021 and working toward achieving your goals, think about: What do you need to stop doing, what do you need to start doing, and what do you need to change in order to ensure you achieve your goals?
2. The quote but an unknown coach, “It’s not about the X’s and O’s, it’s about the Jimmy’s and Joe’s”. It is so critical that in order to achieve your level of success you’ve got to have the right Jimmy’s, Joe’s, Jane’s and Janet’s. We’ve said this a lot in past, you have to have the right people in the right seats on the bus.
When you think about your goals for Q2 and achieving success, think about the people on your bus and what it will take to get to your ultimate destination and remember that success is a marathon, not a sprint.
It’s snowing today in the DC area! This has us thinking about adaptability. Watch the video below to see Dr. Jay Greenstein braving the cold and snow to bring you this week’s Two Minute Drill.
Greater Levels of Success
When it’s snowing, you’ve got to adapt to changing schedules, cancelations, and increased driving times. Being adaptable is important in business as we are having to continually adapt to our changing environment. Here are three things you can do to be more adaptable.
Mindset – change your mindset. You don’t have to keep doing things the same way you always have
Take little risks – experiment in small ways, trying new things
Learn from the data – learn from your little experiments and use the data to make better decisions moving forward
We know from the science that adaptability means greater levels of success. This week’s challenge is to change your mindset, take a little risk, and use the data to adapt. If you are in the Northeast, hope you are enjoying the snow and staying warm and safe!
