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

Matt Dillon on leadership: If you behave badly there will be consequences

By Jim Whitt In the opening scene of an episode of Gunsmoke, Matt Dillon rides up on a peddler who is camped alongside a creek. When the peddler learns that Matt is a U.S. Marshall the following conversation ensues: Peddler: “Say, you aren’t after a bad man are you?” Matt Dillon: “I was.” Peddler: “Where is he?” Matt Dillon: “I buried him this morning.” I’ve found many lessons on life and leadership watching Gunsmoke. This particular scene offers a message that every leader needs to send to every employee in the organization: “If you choose to behave badly, there will… Read More

The brilliance of today’s success can blind us to the opportunities of tomorrow

By Jim Whitt When you walk into a fast-food restaurant, how long do you expect to wait from the time you order until you get your food? Five minutes? No, five minutes seems like an eternity in a fast-food place. Think about that — fast-food. It’s part of our culture. Where did the concept for fast food begin? Fast-food started when the McDonald brothers opened a drive-in restaurant in San Bernardino, California back in the 1930s. It had car hops and curb service. It looked like a scene from the movie American Graffiti. It took about twenty minutes from the… Read More

What’s Your Reality?

By Jim Whitt This is an excerpt from Chapter 6  of The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding & Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life: In the movie, The Truman Show, Truman Burbank has been the unwitting star of a 24 hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week TV show even before his birth.

The Prevailing Point of View

By Jim Whitt A friend sent me an article entitled In a Downturn, Provoke Your Customers* in which the authors write about provocation-based selling. Being a professional provoker, I found the principles described in provocation-based selling to be congruent with my approach as a consultant and speaker. One of the things I really like about the provocation-based selling approach is that it challenges the prevailing point of view as opposed to aligning with the prevailing point of view. You can sell a lot of stuff to people using the prevailing point of view because it’s familiar to them. But you’re… Read More

Leader of the Pack

By Jim Whitt If you’ve ever watched Cesar Millan’s TV show, The Dog Whisperer, you’ve seen some amazing transformations take place with dogs and their owners.  I’ve been reading his book, Be the Pack Leader: Use Cesar’s Way to Transform Your Dog and Your Life, and find many of Cesar’s canine principles apply to human behavior. For example, here’s a sad but true observation: “Humans are the only species that will follow a totally unbalanced, unstable leader.” Our species can learn a lot about leadership from a dog’s point of view. Cesar says the “alpha” dog is no more important… Read More

Are You Ready for Your Big Break?

By Jim Whitt A local company received a letter from a prospective customer: “Sirs…Could you please send me a catalogue and price list of your products, namely concrete tools and saws. Thank you for your time…Signed: Joe Bob Smith.” The letter found its way into my hands via a friend who showed me the envelope it arrived in after I had read the letter. It was stamped: “THIS LETTER HAS BEEN MAILED FROM THE WISCONSIN PRISON SYSTEM.” Do you remember how the old Dragnet series always ended? “The story you have just seen is true. The names were changed to… Read More

Road Signs For Success

By Paula Lau “I don’t know!” I snapped at one of my sons. For what seemed like the one hundredth time, he was asking me a question about his Lenten fast. Last year for Lent our entire family had given up the same thing. This made Lent fairly straight-forward and we all helped one another along in our endeavor. For those of you who may not know, Lent is a season of time within the Christian Church before Easter in which Christians may choose to give up something to keep in mind our Lord’s sacrifice. Last year we had all… Read More

Road Signs for Success – June 11, 2008

By Kay Caldwell Do you ever feel like you limit yourself? Do you have your life in a nice, neat little box that you dust off every now and then? Have you ever felt like you are in someone else’s territory? I read once “it’s not trespassing if the boundaries you cross are your own.” If you stop and think about you, and we rarely do, you have probably set boundaries in your life without realizing it. We all tend to set these boundaries based on life experiences. Let’s think about a new way of handling things.
