Just Look at Michael Jordan

September 8th, 2008


What does Michael Jordan have to do with working less and making more? Lots. Michael Jordan is a good example of what happens when you focus on and maximize your talents and strengths. He’s also a good example of what happens when you don’t maximize your strengths and talents.


We all have things we’re really good at doing. And most of us aren’t just limited to one thing. Chances are, you’re probably brilliant at many different things. But there’s a difference between being brilliant at something, and loving something. When you focus on something you’re brilliant at, you’re using your strengths and talents in the best possible way. When you focus on something you love doing, you have a lot of fun but aren’t really using your strengths and talents in the best way possible.

The Power of Three

August 26th, 2008


One of the keys to Working Less, Making More is focus. Today, I want you to focus on your three highest value activities. For now, forget the other stuff.

Take out a piece of paper, and write down your three highest value activities. These are things that you are good at (your Brilliance), that only you can do in your business, and that are important to the success of your business or career. Imagine what would happen if you all your time focused on those three activities, and delegated everything else to others in your organization.

Discover Your Brilliance

August 14th, 2008


The Work Less, Make More program is all about working with your strengths. It has absolutely nothing to do with working on your weaknesses, or trying to balance out your skills. The secret to working less and making more is discovering your brilliance—your natural gifts. Once you discover them, you focus on them. It’s as easy as that.


Okay, maybe I’m simplifying things a bit. Designing your life around what you’re good at is the easy part. But discovering what you’re good at, on the other hand, can be quite challenging.
