A lesson in race relations

By Jim Whitt There was one summertime activity that dominated all others growing up in my little hometown of Shidler, Oklahoma — baseball. And no one loved baseball more than my father. It would be hard to count the boys who grew up playing on teams he coached. The first league he coached in that I can remember consisted of two teams — the Mules and the Frogs. As I recall, my brother Marc played for the Mules. A few years later Dad coached the town team Marc played for and I was the batboy. The team won their league… Read More

The one fear all successful people learn to overcome

By Jim Whitt An up-and-coming band was playing bars throughout the south in the 1970s when a Macon, Georgia record producer decided they were good enough for the big time. He recorded a dozen of their songs and headed to L.A. to pitch the band to the big boys of the music business only to find no takers. They said one song was particularly hurtful to their chances. It was too long and would never get airtime on the radio. But somebody did give it playtime and it ended up selling a gazillion copies. The song was Free Bird. The… Read More

Want to be more successful? Go fishing…

By Jim Whitt Fishing brings to mind Rockwellian visions of barefoot boys lounging lazily on a creek bank with cane poles, a can of worms and not a care in the world. Fishing in the 21st century wouldn’t fit in a Norman Rockwell frame, however. Fishing has become big business. Billions of dollars are spent on high powered boats and high tech equipment. But all that technology will not make you a great fisherman. If you learn the secret to successful fishing you will also learn how to be more successful in life. In an issue of Dakota Country magazine,… Read More

Your answer to this question will help determine your success in life and business

By Jim Whitt I walked into an optometry shop looking for a new pair of glasses. I spotted someone who I thought was an employee sitting at a desk. She looked up at me but didn’t say anything so I thought she must be a customer waiting to be helped. I looked at the displays and tried on frames for about 15 minutes when the woman at the desk finally asked, “May I help you?” I thought the fact that I had tried on frames for a quarter of an hour might have been a clue but I held my… Read More

Six magic words: What can I do to help?

By Jim Whitt I was on a packed flight on small jet flying from Garden City, Kansas to Dallas. The flight attendant was frantically trying to cover all the bases required to get the plane off the ground. In the bulkhead seat two rows in front of me was an elderly woman who insisted on keeping her bag on the floor which of course was against regulations. There is only one flight attendant on these small jets and this attendant was losing her cool. The elderly woman spoke no English and the frustrated attendant kept raising her voice telling the… Read More

Who’s to say what’s possible?

By Jim Whitt On May 6, 1954 Roger Bannister ran a mile in 3:59.4 minutes. That’s no big deal if you consider the fact that his time has been broken hundreds of times in the 60 years since then. But it was a big deal then because he accomplished what most considered to be impossible. He ran a mile in less than four minutes. No human being had accomplished that feat until then. In my work as a consultant I am constantly provoking people and businesses to consider new and different ways to do what they do every day. It’s… Read More

The future belongs to contrarians

By Jim Whitt If you were going to build the largest hotel in North America, where would you build it? The logical thing to do would be to build it in one of the continent’s largest metropolitan areas. Maybe New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles or Florida. That would make sense, wouldn’t it? Find out where the most people need overnight accommodations and build a hotel big enough to hold them. But William Cornelius Van Horne didn’t choose New York, Los Angeles or Florida for the largest hotel in North America — he chose Banff. Banff? Yes, Banff — Banff,… Read More

What if we all gave thanks for everything we have?

I was on the phone this week with Noel Ledermann, a longtime reader who told me that he has shared the following article with many people over the years. It’s one that reminds us of why we should be thankful this Thanksgiving. By Sondra Whitt In a workshop I facilitated recently, one participant was struggling to keep a positive attitude at work while she was surrounded by overwhelming negativity. While there were several helpful suggestions offered by different participants, she finally came to the conclusion that her best solution was to deliberately practice positive self-talk. She realized that she had… Read More

Leadership lessons from a cowboy named Rooster and a horse named Clyde

By Jim Whitt When I hired on as a pen rider at Wheatheart Feeders in 1972 there were roughly 20 cowboys and 60 company horses. The longest tenured hands got the pick of the best horses leaving the newest cowboys — forgive the pun — saddled with the worst. Wheatheart had a good-looking buckskin that had a reputation for bucking. Since the seasoned cowboys preferred function over form the buckskin ended up being ridden by one of the newer hands who were more enamored with the horse’s color and conformation. The buckskin ended up as a mount for a new… Read More

Ode to Zig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar passed away at age 86 yesterday. Zig may have influenced more people in the sales profession than any other person. When I started my sales career with Ralston Purina in the 1970s I listened to his audiocassettes while humming down the road in the High Plains. Zig was the ultimate sales professional who became the world’s ultimate sales trainer. Zig eventually became best known as a motivational speaker. I’ll never forget an evaluation I received from an audience member at a speaker showcase years ago who called me a “Zig Ziglar retread.” That was the nicest backhanded compliment… Read More
