Your Drive

You can break down Drive into four categories:

  • Advancement. Wanting to reach the next goal (promotion, deadline, or task)
  • Individuality. Having the lifestyle you desire and the security to do so
  • Madness. Competing against others and proving you are the best at what you do
  • Purpose. Self-actualization and having a positive impact on others.

You can have more than one type driving you. However, a driver can stop to work in your favor.

Running Out Of Your Drive

People often feel lost after a big deadline because their driver is suddenly gone.

To solve this, you need to dive deeper into your Purpose.

Define your purpose by asking:

  • How do you want to be remembered?
  • How do you want to make an impact on other people’s lives?
  • What does the greatest version of yourself look like?

3. Find Your “Blue Ocean”

Rather than competing in games where you’re an underdog, find unexplored new markets in which you can win.

🚫Don’t complain that the game is rigged. Instead, find a game in which you have a differential advantage.

Creating an effective strategy

Effective strategy is about making a move and being prepared to launch another series of moves based on how the market or your competition reacts.

You must think beyond your first strike to execute an effective strategy.

30

Master knowing yourself.

Thinking ahead is impossible without self awareness. With self awareness you gain the power of choice and control over your actions.

Above all with the knowledge of who you want to be, you will know which direction to take as well as why it matters.

Data Defuses Emotions

Data Defuses Emotions

in situations of conflict or stress at work its easy to loose the focus by indulging on emotions like ego, anger and end up with blame game. This path don’t do anything to solve the problem. Data, on the other hand, points to solutions.

By relying on the data, you defuse the emotion from the situation. By focusing on the numbers, you help the other person acknowledge realities. This

not only provides the impetus for improvement but preserves your relationship.By striving for facts you start to look beyond emotions, bias and blame.
