Burning Ships Not Bridges
"I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.” ~Douglas Adams By: Martin Grunburg It's great to be back in the saddle and while this is NOT the official kick-off of Season 4, it is my effort to get you caught up and share at least one of the great lessons I recently experienced. Admittedly, you're gonna have to be a little patient (it takes a while to set the table here) but coincidentally patience is a component part of this lessons anyway! ; ) Today, I share a bit about my long-standing partnership (23+ yrs) and it's official separation —all good, mostly. The fact is we've been partners (3 of us) longer than most marriages exist and with our company's recent win of a prime contract award AND, given that they are in the neighborhood of 70 years old— an exist strategy presented itself. How and why this may relate to you? Entrepreneurs (and people in general) love to cling to motto's, slogans, trite and not so trite sayings, that guide and drive them and their decision making. For instance, "Hire slow and fire fast." Almost every entrepreneur will tell you that is a MUST. Another is "Never settle!" or, another, "revenue is vanity and profit is sanity." All good stuff right? MOST of the time. Sometimes though, from my experience I’ve seen a lot of challenge created from, not avoided by clinging to hard-set ideas. We’ve talked about it here many of times, dichotomous thinking can be dangerous and ultimately can create a lot of friction, struggle and make one feel as though they are running in circles. Let’s use the above as examples; hard to argue with “profit is sanity and revenue is vanity”. That’s one of my favorites! EXCEPT -take Jeff Bezos and Amazon. I believe (at least for a day anyway, he just became the richest man in the world and for the most part his philosophy for Amazon was contrarian to that. Or, how about, ”Never settle!" Sounds pretty amazing right? Imagine a life of never settling. Well, the last time I heard that was from a guy who's now divorced and you can bet he "settled" in court. What about hire slow and fire fast. Nobody’s ever complained that they fired someone too quickly, right? Again - often spot on. However, I can tell you I made one of my best hires in about 30 minutes over a beer. What’s the point?
