048 What Are Unique Core Values: Your New Filter For Decision Making

Over time we get into the habit of making haphazard decisions based on emotion and whims. We know that we love principle decision making, but who has the time and attention for that?

In this episode of the Business On Purpose podcast you will learn the power of Unique Core Values and there overwhelming practicality for day to day decision making and business freedom.

Standard core values are the base level ticket for entry in the game of life, and sometimes are easy to violate.

Remember Enron? Here were their core values…

Integrity
Communication
Respect
Excellence

Bland and generic core values are rarely valued.

Unique core values elevate your game as a small business owner and bring world class clarity and focus to you, your team, your customers, and your long term Vision story.

If you have not listened to episode 45 on Vision Story, and 46 on Mission Statement, make sure to download all three as they compliment each other.

047 Why We Can’t Remember Your Mission Statement

Mission statements have become to businesses what “Go, Fight, Win” has become at a sporting event…cliche.

Does it mean the Mission statement is outdated?

Irrelevant?

Unnecessary?

Absolutely NOT!

I break into the Business On Purpose podcast schedule in order to have a necessary and important discussion around the priority of not only crafting a Mission statement that works, but also the reason for taking the time to declare to the world…this is what gets us out of bed every morning!

046 Why Vision Statements DON’T WORK!

This week I take over the BOP podcast to help you discover the difference between the Vision Statement and the Vision Story…and which you need to focus on.

Organizations and business globally and locally are running at a speed never experienced historically. The question is, where is the ultimate destination of it all? It would be akin to showing up at the wrong place but declaring, “at least I got here fast!”

Arrival at a destination is empty unless the trek along the way means something. If you own a business, you need to listen to this.

045 Stephen Skinner: A Faith-Centered Serial Entrepreneur

Of course you need an ROI on your business, but what about your life. God “deposited” you here on this earth, what about a return on the investment that He has made?

Stephen Skinner comes on today to share with us about the concept of the 100x’s Life. Skinner is a serial entrepreneur, and a guy that you will want to hear from as it relates to managing multiple businesses, a family, and a platform that encourages us to 100x’s our life!

How To Delegate

I used to think that historical events just happened,

very little effort,

very little coordination.

The history of how the nation-state of Israel came to be is fascinating.

Likely over 1 million people migrate from Egypt with no planned provisions for food, water, shelter, sanitation, etc.

They leave all at the same time.

The task gets to overwhelming for the de facto leader/coordinator,

a man by the name of Moses.

As his role, and his life are overwhelmed, he is encouraged to delegate.

“I took heads of tribes (there were 12 tribes), wise and experienced men, and set them as heads over you, commanders of thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens…and officers throughout.” (Deut 1:14-15)

Understand the need of people to work in small teams,

divide the organization to divisional accountability,

then build a mechanism (e.g. predictable weekly meeting) for regular communication and accountability.

Preparing Yourself For Who Walks In The Door Today

Levi was sitting at his desk doing what he did; collecting taxes.

Levi was a Tax Collector.  No different than Tax Collectors today who collect taxes.

It was likely a rather mundane Monday or Thursday, and he was collecting taxes, just like he did the week prior, and the month prior to that, and the year prior to that.

He probably thought, “tomorrow, I’ll wake up and collect taxes.”

Then a man walks up to him and says, “Follow me”.

Levi stopped collecting taxes, and left.

For Levi, when Jesus walked up to his desk, it adjusted his routine.

Who is going to walk up to your desk today and adjust your routine?

Be ready.

Outcome Or Process: What Is More Important?

Sick people are typically interested in one thing…

Health.

Sick people ask this question: “when can I get better?”

Sick people are less interested in this question: “what is the science behind how I get better?”

I am having to learn that although I am keenly interested in the “how”, it is more likely the “when” that is of great interest to the people we serve.
