Two Minute Drill: The Three Pillars of a Successful Event
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is “success”. This past weekend we had our live event and it was in one word “Awesome”, surprisingly, because success doesn’t come easy for me but it was just an incredible event.
The Power of Planning, Tenacity, and Creativity
We got amazing feedback from the very beginning about the event, the content that we had created, the experience that we had created, and ultimately how we were changing lives through this event. It was just amazing. I started to think about what were the factors that drove this result and there are three critical elements.
The first is planning. We did such a good job planning, in fact, one thing that we’re going to do next year is plan for every contingency that we can think of. We didn’t do that this year, but we’ll do it next year. My team did a great job in planning the event and we had lots of outside help, David Muntner, Joey Coleman, the other success partners, and speakers, we all worked together to plan.
The second thing that allowed this event to be successful was that we were incredibly tenacious. We had very low attendance until just a few weeks before the event. However, just continuing to work on the process and just not giving up, we ended up having a really great room of people.
The last piece is creativity. You know, when the success partners and the speakers and my team were on these meetings getting ready, there were some incredibly creative ideas that came out of those meetings, and that’s what drove greater attendance and we had a full room.
I’m very blessed, and very grateful for the speakers, the success partners, and the attendees, they were amazing and engaged. We all had fun, we learned a lot, and we had lots of laughs and love along the way.
So, plan, be tenacious, be creative, and good things will happen.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. I’ll see you guys all next week.
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is failure and success. We are launching our second technology platform literally tomorrow and I was talking to our advisor, Rob, who has been shepherding us, literally shepherding us along the way. I was talking to him yesterday and he said, with a sinister and funny laugh “Don’t forget you asked for this”!
February 1st is the day
It is so true! I asked for this! I did, and it got me thinking about failure, what happens if we fail if it doesn’t work if we don’t see the behaviors that we’re expecting with the use of this new technology?
Then it got me thinking a bit deeper, saying to myself, you know what? Failure is not finite. Success is not finite. The question I need to be asking myself along the is what am I learning? There’s only one thing that’s worse than random success, and that is a random failure. It’s not knowing why you’re being successful or not knowing why you’re not being successful.
As long as I continue to keep my mental toughness, keep my grittiness, don’t get overwhelmed by emotions, and just continue to ask myself the question, what am I learning from this? I think we’re going to be okay.
My encouragement to you is when you’re doing something tough when you’re doing something hard when you’re going through the peaks and the valleys, ask yourself, what am I learning from this?
Because when you do that and you’re increasing your knowledge and your wisdom base, you will ultimately get to the place that you want to get to.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. You guys have a great week.
Please, please, please send lots of love and luck and mojo for us. February one is the day!
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.
