Hey Team...

Hope you are having a great week and making the magic happen!

Yesterday, I posted something on LinkedIn that seemed to really resonate with people....

Hour after hour the post kept getting more and more likes...

Which shows that it hit a cord....

You can do anything... but not everything.... pick one thing and be great at it...

Wow.

How many of us try to BE too much?

DO too much?

EXPECT too much?

Most of us...

For some reason... we get bored very quickly..

We do not have the patience to stay narrow and deep... but we face the daily urges to go wide yet shallow on all that we do....

As I have been on my journey.. I will tell you this:

Narrow and deep far outperforms wide and shallow...

Why?

FOCUS.

When you stay narrow and deep.. you get really good at what you do..

You really start to understand not only your market.. but yourself... and what the "both" of you need (you and your market)....

This applies to everything though...

Since many are just not content with what they are doing.. and where they are...

This past fall I was speaking to several college baseball coaches....

The Division 3 Coaches wanted to be Division 1 Coaches... 

The Division 2 Coaches wanted to be Division 2 Coaches...

And... the Division 1 Coaches wanted to be PRO Coaches...

Not content...

Looking for greener grass...

Except for one Coach...

He told me Division 3 is the greatest job in College Sports because the focus is not 100% on winning...

But 100% on developing young boys into young men...

WOW..

That is powerful....

That is what happens when you realize your position and the impact you can have.. rather than thinking you have to constantly be on the elevator to find success....

Today, I encourage you to take a few minutes and realize the "great" things about where you ARE.

Realize that although it may not be perfect.. are you looking to make a change for the sake of elevation or for "impact"?

That is the question....

And also realize... sometimes you just have to go a little deeper....

Let's GO!
