The video below offers brilliant words of wisdom attributed to Warren Buffet as career advice to his personal airline pilot, Mike Flint. I have read this story before. This gentlemen – self describe creativity expert,- James Taylor, offers it as advice for creatives.
I offer it as advice for business owner and leaders. It syncs really well with the precepts of EOS which all support the idea that Less Is More. Focus on the most important goals for your business, your department, your personal life – this quarter, this year, always. We challenge business owners to write down their Core Focus – answering two questions. Why do they do what they do? What do they want to be better at than anyone else? Use that answer to avoid getting distracted by Shiny Stuff. You will get the best ROI for you whatever time, money and people you focus on those goals.
If you can’t see the video below, you can view it here on YouTube.
