Happy New Year everyone. Don’t know about you but it already feels like half the year has gone already.
Every year we all set off thinking ‘This year I’ll make some changes’ and then we get busy and by March/April we are back to doing what we’ve always done. AGAIN. Except that doing what we’ve always done is a recipe for business disaster, cos while you are busy doing what you’ve always done, someone, somewhere is working on a way to do what you do faster and cheaper!
I’m now semi, semi retired from working with high performing teams, but over the years I created and/or amassed hundreds of games, icebreakers, questionnaires and checklists. They all sit on my computer doing nothing and going nowhere.
So I did my own 2020 kick butt check and decided that every month I would load something of value onto my website so others can use them.
My February free products is this ‘Kick Butt Checklist’, something I’ve used with dozens of owners and managers over the years.
Otherwise you will end up like these people:
Ken Olsen, Chair of Digital Equipment said ‘There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home.’ (1977)
H M Warners, Warner Brothers said ‘Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?’ (1927)
Charles Duell, Commissioner US Patents Office said ‘Everything that can be invented has been invented.’ (1899)
Happy Creative New Year.
