The Dark Side of Having Grit

CD1YaY2WgAAs2f4
Sort of weird to think there’s a dark side of having Grit but it’s true.

Here’s a real life story:
Years ago we owned vending machines. They were truly a pain in the ass. I had to negotiate prices with stores, then had to do the leg work of lugging the food to the machines and loading them. Not to mention beg my way into offices to actually place the machine. On top of all it the business didn’t make any money. One day on a bike ride I was talking to my friend Mark, who was worth $500,000,000 at the time (half a BILLION) about what I was going to do now that I had gotten laid off from my job as a Network Engineer. I told him about my vending machine business and how it was going and his response was simply, “Z, I know you. You’re in the wrong business. Get out of it as fast as you can.” The

Living Legacy

Me, Weiner Sensei, Demko Sensei, Main Sensei and Brent Goodroe.

Due to an injury I wasn’t able to attend our annual seminar but I got a chance to visit on Friday afternoon.  This photograph shows something deeply significant.  Demko Sensei is the teacher of Main Sensei, who is the teacher of Weiner Sensei, who is Brent and my teacher.  Between the 3 Sensei’s there’s over 100 years of experience.  Living, breathing collections of experience and perspective that are willing to teach, train and mentor the willing – people like Brent, myself and many other students.  This photograph shows a living legacy.

Made me think about people who undertake ventures without the guidance of someone more experienced.

Do you have mentors in your life?  If so, what areas.

4 Steps that define “…think about it…”

You hear people (usually leaders) say “…think about it…”  What EXACTLY does that mean?  Over time I’ve come to learn there are a few things that phrase means to me.

  • Give myself a minute (literally 60 seconds or less) in a place without distraction (often times driving or drinking my morning Spark).  The key is to not be doing something but be just ending something.
  • Asking myself these 4 questions about the thing that I read, heard or saw:
  • How does this apply to me?
  • Am I guilty of not doing this thought?
  • Do I do this thought?
  • How am I going to make a change (if necessary).

You can see it’s a very selfish process but then again that’s why it’s called SELF growth!
