For the Love of the Grind (Why I Don’t Set Many Goals)

Good Wednesday Morning!

I had a funny conversation with my best friend last night.

He just got back from a 10 day vacation out in the wilderness at a family cabin up in north Washington (practically Canada), and he was telling me that he thinks that the way society is set up with work and bills etc is something that he disagrees with.

He just wants to go on adventures and not have to work.

There’s not a TON of advice to give here, but I at least tried…

I told him to start filming his “adventures” and putting it on the internet. Others do it and make a living!

He didn’t like that idea either though…lol.

My final advice for him was simple…it’s ALL work. Life I mean.

I have a MUCH different view of the world as he does, so in my opinion, work is where my enjoyment lives!

Not that I wouldn’t love backpacking through the Smokey mountains or 2 weeks in Europe attending as many soccer games as humanly possible, but…

It’s a BUILDING thing for me.

I want to create something that can change a person’s life.
A culture that they feel at home in.
A system that helps them succeed and fulfill dreams.
A company that impacts PEOPLE over and over and over.
A MACHINE that can exponentially raise my abilities to touch even more lives.

That’s why I love what I do.
That’s why I don’t set many “goals”.

I think goals are fine and dandy.
But I also feel passionately that no one grinds hard and makes tough decisions for years at a time so they can buy a new watch!

It’s the LOVE of that process and that grind that keeps me coming back day in day out.

Now for my buddy, what GRIND is he going to love? Who knows…

But look at what you do for a living, and find what you LOVE in there, but don’t just look at the activities (hiring, selling, training, analytics etc

Look at the VALUES.

My value is BUILDING. What’s yours?

Thank you!

31 Killer Employee Motivation Quotes (That are Actually Impactful)

Before you get going on these quotes, read this: Leaders Don’t Motivate. They Inspire.

I’ve got 31 Employee Motivation Quotes for you, but First…

I want to be sure to state my belief that I strongly feel employees need to be SELF motivated. It would be a bit hypocritical for me to post this and not state that.

Now Inspiration, that’s a different story!

The two words, motivation and inspiration, they get swapped in and out a lot, and they are NOT the same thing.

  • Motivation is an internal trait
  • Inspiration is an outward force that can be applied

That said, there is times that you do need to add some employee motivation with some quotes and speeches.

  • Maybe you just took over some new employees that were de-motivated by a prior manager.
  • Or you realized that you have de-motivated your employees and need to change the momentum.
  • What if you have lost YOUR motivation and need a spark?

Show the team that you care! Your words are powerful when delivered with passion and from the heart. Use these quotes to inspire and, of course, HAVE FUN!

Ok, so here we go…

Thinkers are brilliant people but we can sometimes get bogged down by over analyzing. Or like in my case, I think that because I asked a great question that it will do something. It won’t. That’s because THINKING IS NOT DOING. . . . The secret to success lies in ACTION. And that sounds obvious, but ponder the amount of great ideas that you’ve had that you didn’t do anything with…Invention, app, website, business, GOING TO THE GYM… . . . Every second matters. So waste none, take action, get started!! Employee Motivation Quotes

Leaders Don’t Motivate, They Inspire (and the difference between the 2)

A long time ago I had a conversation with a District Manager about motivating people. They had this big explanation as to why it was SO important.
At the end of the explanation, I aggressively disagreed…
I don’t motivate. I don’t teach others how to motivate. It’s not our job, and it’s not an effective form of leadership.
Let me explain…
I believe it is our job to FIND motivated people. Self-motivated. Driven. Ambitious.
See, motivation, to me, is an internal trait. You gotta bring it to me so I can help you do something with it.
When it’s missing, then we have to motivate people to do their job…in short, we have the wrong people.
I came up with an analogy to explain my argument:
I’d rather inspire my Varsity Team to win championships than motivate my JV Team to try harder.
Ahhhhhh, now inspiration…THAT’S the business we’re in!
We inspire Action. Change. Growth.
Our conversations should make people want to go do the things they struggle with.
      Maybe we add clarity…and then they see it.
      Maybe we add urgency…and they go do it.
      Maybe we show them we care, so they know we’re her to catch them if they fall.
      Maybe we teach them an easier way, so they can overcome it.
Let me explain the difference in these 2 real quick:
Motivating = Talking people into trying harder. They don’t WANT IT, and you try convince them they do. You want it for them more than they want it for themselves.
Inspiring = Challenging people to see more. They WANT IT, (bad!) and are on the right track, but on the wrong train. You help them find the right train.
If you want motivated people, you have to find them, not motivate them.

The Place You Belong

Good Tuesday Morning!
Finding the place you belong is a powerful thing. As we go though adolescence there are countless times when we feel lost or out of place. Like no one understands us.
Some people find the place they belong with education…college.
Most do not.
A majority of people find a place that they can JUST BE.
Few refuse to accept that fate
A small amount of lucky people actually find the place that means more to them than anywhere else they have ever spent time.
A group of individuals that “get them” and “speak the same language”
Where a person’s core values match that of the group.
I am categorized as one of the lucky ones…
But what I invite you to consider is that it was not WHERE I ended up that I “belong to”, it’s actually the WHO I ended up WITH that gives me a sense of connection and belonging.
The countless hours spent talking to bosses, leaders, mentors and peers that added perspective.
The numerous lessons that have been taught to me, from how to ring up a customer to how to touch another person’s life.
The amount of stubbornness that my supervisors were patient with me on.
All those people, they changed the world. MY world.
Yes, you are a part of this same group. Yes we love you for who you are. Yes you add to MY world…
But realize that you have the opportunity to change the world for every single person you interact with today.
You have the opportunity to show them the place that they belong!
Enjoy making that impact 🙂


Inspired by…
Echoes by August Burns Red
The pressure is endless
The tension is pounding
Life change after life change
It’s too much for me to take
While mourning the loss I am forced to celebrate
Celebrate new life, celebrate new life
When is it too much?
When is it enough?
Burrow deep down inside
Somewhere, anywhere, a place to hide
I’m collapsed, about to burn
This will end me, set me ablaze
I’m collapsed, about to burn
I am about to explode
I can’t take much more of this
Where is my way out?
Waiting for this page to turn
I can’t even bear the silence
Where is the ringing in my ears to sing me to sleep?
Where are those who feel what I feel?
Why can’t I see the lights shining down on me?
Home will always be where my heart lives
But this is, this is my way out
This is our home away from home
Pouring our hearts across the stage
With every word, we sing together
Screaming our anthem with one another
The open road is what I need to breathe freely
Free me
The open road is what I need to breathe freely
Free me
Who's Your Data? (How to Properly Use Business Metrics. With analytics growing, it's so easy to let the numbers get you thrown off of working on what counts...but what is it again that counts? OH YEAH...Investing in your people!

Who’s Your Data? (How to Properly Use Business Metrics)

So a few weekends ago I was hanging out with my dad, and he said to me…

“I have so much to do today, I don’t even know where to start.”

So you know what he did? He ignored it all and went to a garden show with my son and I instead!

So did he finish his to-do list that day?

Probably not. But you know what he DID do? Spent time with his son and grandson. That’s way more valuable and important than cutting the grass! PLUS we both bought some SWEET plants too 🙂

Now how does this apply to business?

Stick with me here…running a business involves a lot of NUMBERS; metrics, KPIs, and the like…and man can it be overwhelming.

You can get paralysis by analysis and start to feel like my dad on that Saturday when we ended up at the Garden Show.


Now the question you have to ask is this; with all that data at your fingertips, do you USE it to accomplish something REAL and VALUABLE, or do you get distracted by it, wasting time dwelling on a stupid number?

Or worse yet, do you find empty distractions to avoid the flood of metrics? (Enter Snapchat and Facebook)

In this post I’m going to clarify just WHAT to do with all these numbers, why they exist, and just exactly how you can use them to WIN. And it doesn’t matter what numbers your business keeps track of and holds you accountable for. It all applies here!

So the logical place to start then would be…

So What’s with all the Numbers Anyway?

We all WANT to win. We mean the best with the actions that we take, but so many of those actions actually lack serious focus because they are about a damn number, and not about WHAT IS REAL.

The overall POINT to business is to win. No one goes into business to break even, and certainly no one goes in to lose (money).

Save your money laundering comments plz!

So with making money as the goal, things quickly move to tracking numbers to measure success. Metrics. Stats.

These numbers mean a lot because they can show you of an area of weakness, or strength, or opportunity. Analytics are important because they tell you the story that your eyes can’t see.

BUT…Data, organized into what generally becomes a spreadsheet or PowerPoint, really only does one thing…

What Exactly is Your Job Anyway, Data?

To INFORM. That’s it.

Analytics tell the story that your eyes can’t see.

Data will tell you more of the story, and shed light in areas that you previously didn’t know existed, but the impact stops there. Numbers don’t do anything…

As in: Don’t DO anything.

They are merely the results.

Measure any number you want.
Make beautifully designed spreadsheets.
Use some new system or app.
Compose yet another PowerPoint…

And nothing happens except people know more numbers. And you can probably vouch for us all in saying that the last thing we need to do is memorize more numbers!


There’s REALLY Only 2 Goals in Business Anyway (read more about that HERE)

Goal #1 Sell to more customers (Conversion)
Goal #2 Sell more product to the existing customers (Dollars per Transaction)

Those two things can be said many different ways, but the principles stay the same: Increase number of customers that make a purchase, and/or increase the amount of items/money that the customer purchases/spends.

OK, so what can you ACTUALLY do to cause more of each of these two things?

Hint: Numbers ain’t it.

The True Secret to Winning

So there is ONE thing, that if you get more in tune with, will cause winning. Lots of winning. That is, if you really devote attention to it.

This thing isn’t actually a thing.

It can’t be looked up, can’t be researched, and it’s NOT any sort of data. And, its different with YOU than it is with me….

What is it??? What’s the thing that transcends all the supposed precious data?

It’s easy…THEM.


This group is far more powerful than you’ll ever know, and the impact that your words has on others cannot be understated.

And the words that you choose with your team will be different than the words I choose with my team.


When those words are YOURS, and you are having fun, and loving the things that you do, WATCH what happens! Oooo it’s like magic. All these numbers…all this “DATA”… it starts to turn THE COLOR OF MONEY 🙂

Ok so let’s get to it…

So how do you tap into this TRUE secret to winning? For starters…

Data should RARELY be the topic of conversation.

Any kind of data. Leave it out of the next conversation that you have with a teammate and instead talk about the things that matter (we’ll get to the specifics of that in a sec).

What to do with the Mountain of Data

The numbers, metrics and stats truly are EXTREMELY important…

I know, I know… I have been bashing them this whole time right? But it’s only so I can make THIS POINT:

We just use numbers as a tool that they weren’t intended to be.

Numbers don’t lead people.
Numbers don’t inspire people.
Numbers don’t motivate people.

Leaders do all those things…Its the Leader’s job to find self-motivated people.

“If you want motivated people, you have to find them, not motivate them.”

Leadership is sparking change in results by changing attitude, adding inspiration, holding accountable…in short, it’s changing how a situation occurs to them.

You can’t do that by “reporting the news” and just telling them numbers. The more numbers you report, the more they will; fall asleep…roll their eyes…nod their head to get you to stop talking.

In short…

The more numbers you report, the more they stop following you.

Ok so leave the metrics and KPIs out of the conversation, got that…so what should I do with them all then?

Simple. Use data for what it was intended to do in the first place, to inform you.

Study the data to the point where you know the key metrics off the top of your head. Again, these numbers ARE very important!

You need to know them because they tell you the things that you can’t see. The things that go on in your absence. The things that you do but don’t realize that you do. The things that you need to start doing, or the actions that you need to adjust.

They matter because they measure the things that you do. But that’s just the thing, they MEASURE. They don’t DO. They don’t inspire. They don’t lead.

So Let’s Get to What it is That You Actually Do

RECAP: So the true secret to wining is your team, and the numbers ARE actually important, but you shouldn’t talk about them because they are designed inform.

Got it.

OK so what do you talk about?

Can’t talk about numbers, so instead, talk about what YOU want to talk about?


Maybe you should talk about what THEY want to talk about.


In order for you to improve their performance, you first need to know how they perceive their performance.

This is going to sound CRAZY, but it’s true…

The more you listen to your team, the more they tell you.

So, as you allow them to talk, they will TELL you the area that they need your guidance in. The area that your expertise is needed, the thing that they got lazy with, or the behavior that they weren’t taught.

They don’t come straight out and TELL YOU, but they tell you clear enough to catch every time, as long as you allow them to.

Story Time

So let me tell you a story to illustrate this point.

I was in a phone conversation with a member of my team, and he had just talked for about 2 minutes straight. Drawing off the things that he had said, I had five or six areas that I could use to teach.

I actually started my side of the conversation with a long pause, and something to the tune of, “Ok dude, hang on here, I’ve got a ton of things I can teach you, but I need to find my place to play…”

Then another long pause while I thought.  He started talking to fill up the silence, and about five seconds into that, it hit me like a ton of bricks!

I interrupted him and I said…

“Hang on, man. Hang on…I actually have a question for you. I have a question that I actually have never asked you for as long as you’ve worked for me. And it’s a question that actually starts with an apology…”

He says, “Apology? For what?”

I replied, “An apology because it was probably the first question that I should’ve asked you when I shook your hand after you got realigned to work on our team. But I never asked it.”

Confused, he just says, “…OK?”

Then I asked the question, and it may come as a shock to you…

I asked, “Did anyone ever train you for the job that you have?”

Mind you, I had just FINALLY figured out that he hadn’t been trained properly after about 2.5 months of working together. But I wasn’t exactly sure the full extent.

He was hesitant to answer the question. Naturally.

So what did I do? Tell him that he can trust me? Or worse, rattle off a ton of numbers that “prove” why I asked the question?


I apologized.

I apologized for the fact that it took nearly three months for me to ASK him, and for me to REALIZE it. I owned the fact that he was untrained and thrown to the wolves over a year before he started to even report to me!

Was it ALL my fault? WHO CARES! He’s a member of my team and he was NOT TRAINED.

Then what happens next is where the magic is. This is what it’s all about!

He paused, and then he did the most important thing that a person in a business relationship can do. He opened up to me.

He said simply, “No.”

From there you know what happened? We began to build a connection. We had a REAL conversation as business partners that started like this…

Alright, I’m Going In!

Real quick, we traced back his lineage in the company, and I found the area that I had gotten confused about with his training (or lack-there-of), and I apologized again.

I had some things on my mind from his rant earlier (the one where there was 5-6 things I wanted to teach him), but first I asked him if he had anything left on his mind.

He said “No not really…” in a way that was vulnerable, and unsure of where this was going.

I replied, standing up from my office chair, “Alright dude, then I’m going in!”

From that point I did the talking, and I was passionate. Heated. Not AT him, but in general. I was fucking pissed!

At what we’d done to him.
At the fact that I missed it for almost 3 months.
For not having asked him about his training on day onw.
And…at some of the things that he had said earlier (his excuses).

When I say I went in, I mean I WENT IN.

It was amazing. It was inspiring. It was LEADERSHIP.

The reason I describe my side of the conversation like that is not because of ego. I don’t think I’m great, trust me. I say that because of the result of the conversation.

What is that result?

That we now have the chance to…

Build Something Beautiful (Major Event Creation)

The relationship between two human beings is such an interesting thing to be apart of. Some people you CLICK with as soon as you meet them. With most others (for me anyway), it’s awkward conversation about the weather at first.

The thing that I want to talk about is how a major event can happen, and then people are different around each other. It’s often expressed as “It actually brought us closer together.

As a leader, creating these major events is how the relationship (partnership) grows. It’s how to improve things!

All those NUMBERS we were talking about earlier, they inform you as to where there is a possibility to create this major event.

I had now created that major event with this person, and he went from “employee” to “partner”.

I went from “boss” to “leader”.

We started the journey to building something together…

Something beautiful. A badass business relationship that will lead to a ton of winning.

Mind you that even though this feels HUGE, it’s really not. This is THE START. This is where the work begins.

Also needs to be pointed out that we didn’t talk about a single number this whole conversation, except at the very beginning of the conversation. I asked him about a number that he didn’t know. I DID know them though, and when I asked him about them, I was able to use the #1 Leadership Tool: Slower is Faster with People, to see that he wasn’t trained!

The Moral (People Fix it All)

This will be short…

The numbers don’t move the numbers, so don’t WORRY about the numbers.

Actions move the numbers, so pay attention to the actions.


People take the actions, so spend the most time here…with your team.

Invest in the people, the numbers will start to take care of themselves. As things improve, you can lead the team from good numbers to great numbers.

Wrap It Up (and put a bow on it)

This post covered a wide range of topics and concepts. Let me stack them up and put a bow right on top!

  1. There’s probably too much data – We have it because we want to win!
  2. We then get distracted by the data – We think it’s the point
  3. We then try to work on the data…unsuccessfully (because it’s not the point)
  4. Data is really just there to inform…it tells you things your eyes can’t see
  5. Know the data! – It IS actually important
  6. Don’t talk about the data – Reporting the news bores people
  7. Build a connection with your team
  8. Listen more than you talk – 2 ears, 1 mouth
  9. When you do talk, don’t talk about data – It’s in there twice I know
  10. Find an area to make an impact by creating a “major event”
  11. Go slow, because SLOWER IS FASTER WITH PEOPLE
  12. People fix it all – Add value to them, and they change numbers and metrics

Keep working on being you. Not a better you, not a different you…the perfect you that you already are. Have fun, work hard, and TEACH!


How Language Effects Company Culture

 The language used to describe your surroundings will become your culture.

Language is not just a form of communication. It truly shapes the way things occur to us. The term “language” refers to anything that is communicated, verbally and non-verbally. From the things that you say aloud to others, to the body language that you use to communicate. An obvious eye-roll, or a much more subtle “demeanor” given off when you harbor resentment.

The answer to “What it Reality”

The question, “What is reality”, has a vast many opinions attached to it. What is real, and what is the world/universe that we live in?
My personal favorite opinion on reality is called the “Simulation Argument”. It basically states that we are actually living in a computer simulation. Said differently, we’re an extremely complex version of The Simms. Not to dis-similar to the Matrix actually.
Now, to me, reality is something completely different, and, could theoretically be taking place in a computer simulation. If it is, it wouldn’t matter anyway, because whatever your reality is, is your reality.
My opinion on reality is that it’s in our language. What we say, is what is true. If we speak it, we make it so. When I say that “language truly shapes the way things occur to us”, what that means is that language builds your reality. Language IS reality.

Without Language, Reality Doesn’t Exist

Language is unique to humans. If we don’t have the ability to use language, we don’t have reality. Simple. Think about it, to your dog, the wood fence in the yard is just there because it’s always been there. It’s not called a fence either. It’s not called anything, because it isn’t anything. It’s just there. There’s nothing on the other side of it, or behind it, because there is no “other side” or “behind” to a dog. That’s because dogs don’t have language. Think of it a bit more complex. Dogs don’t hold grudges because grudges aren’t real. It’s just a word that humans use to describe events in the past. Dogs don’t make promises either, because there’s no such thing as a promise without the word “promise”.


So then, What Reality is Your Language Creating for Your Organization?

Your language creates either momentum or stagnation. So, on the team that  you lead, the language that you use is creating a perception of the events that happen, and thus you also create a culture. If the language and verbiage you use is that of someone who thinks “Things here suck”, then your followers will soon begin to agree. That becomes their reality. When you communicate in those terms, you’re focusing on, and actively creating a culture that will become toxic, full of complaints, and eventually performs poorly.
When the language you use is that of someone who thinks “We’re great!”, then your followers will begin to agree! That becomes your reality. When you communicate in those terms, you’re focusing on, and actively creating a culture that will become special. Full of teamwork, ideas and partnerships. This is where momentum is built!

Examine the Correlation between Language, and Performance

If foot traffic is down 10% can you win? The way that situation occurs to you will determine your performance. So, your answer  will create a reality that can come true. If the outlook is hopeless, then the customer service will be equally hopeless. When customer service is bad, there’s no chance to win, even if the foot traffic was up 10%, let alone down 10%. You see the correlation between the language and the performance? You see that the reality that is created in the language is one that almost ensures lack of success, so then lack of success becomes the future?

Move the language to a positive place, or your Superstars will move to a positive place.

Only hopeless individuals want to be in a workplace that has a culture that is hopeless. Talented individuals have options; job offers come easy, recruiters contact them often, and they are generally “magnetic”.
Keep this in mind: The way a situation occurs will ALWAYS determine performance
That can be tweaked to say; the way a team occurs will determine talent level. Or, the way a company occurs to its employees will determine turnover rate. You see how powerful language is? You see that there is no reality of “hopeless”? It’s just language creating the perception of that reality?

So How do you Change the Way The Situation Occurs?

Here’s How You Apply Language to Shape a Reality that You Want

-Before you make an effort to change performance, first consider how the situation occurs to the individuals on your team
-Listen to the teams language of how being a member of this team occurs to them
-Pay close attention to body language that also communicates how the job occurs
-Stop using descriptive language in talking about performance issues
-Instead use mental bandwidth to solve problems, not “find reasons”
-Don’t go with “what worked last time”. Use that experience to create new ideas.
-Use “we” instead of “I”, “us” instead of “you”
-Stop saying, “I can’t”. Instead say “We have a challenge.”
-Involve the team in helping to create with reality that you desire to obtain

Language is reality, and you can create any reality that you want! When you change the language, you change the way a situation occurs for the team, and then you can begin to add actionable items to improve performance.


New Years Resolutions for Business: Company Values

Your Organizations Values

As we open up the books on 2018, notice that your future isn’t written. There’s no default that you’re living into, but rather an empty canvas that’s ready to be painted. Something that’s truly new, and fresh. It will only occur to you this way however, if you can put the decisions that shaped last year behind you, and open yourself up to the clean slate that CAN be ready for you at the opening of today.
Examine the history of the organization or team that you run, and you will be able to pick out a pattern, or a blueprint that exists below the conversations. That blueprint is often nicknamed “culture”. In order to be successful, all you need to do is define the values that make you, you, and live true to those values. As you do, you then hire people that align to those values, thus strengthening the team, and the culture simultaneously. The result is that you will have a “compass” that guides you, and while the resulting culture and clarity are very difficult to define, it will just “make sense”.
Now, if complacency starts to creep in, your “compass” will no longer be able to find North. Since you can’t find your way, you begin to stray from those values, and while it can be just as difficult to define, you begin to feel that things “aren’t right”.
It all starts with Integrity. Without that, nothing else matters. It’s about never backing down from a tough decision, not being a pushover, and always focusing on the team.“It’s never the wrong time to do the right thing.” When that value is in action, it creates the space for you to work. It’s clarity and focus. That clarity translates into a motivation that’s about the enjoyment of career. The small stuff; When you have a love for what you do, learning takes a front seat as others around us see the joy that your role gives you and they want to be a part of it. You make an impact on their lives…an impact creates a bond like a professional sports team. The success of an individual brings about success of the team, and regardless who scores the points, the mission is to win! With a unified team, you can all work together to push the vision of what professional community can be by thinking forward and sharing ideas to make history.
Add value to those around you, and you will be investing into the future of the organization, and building the future.
