Today I want to talk about going from GOOD to GREAT, with lessons from the book by the same name, authored by Jim Collins. It’s timeless, and has sold millions of copies around the world.
I first read the book in one of my university business courses and it’s one I revisit often.
Good to Great, and Jim’s other book Built to Last, have probably had the biggest effect on how I built my businesses, and how I lead and manage.
Today I want to share nuggets of wisdom from Good to Great that have made me a way better entrepreneur, and hopefully they can help you too.
In this episode of She Takes on the World TV we’ll discuss:
- Which comes first: Putting people on your “bus” or figuring out where to go
- Doomloops vs. flywheels − what they are, and which one you want your business to be on
- A new kind of to-do list that’s going to turbocharge your productivity
My actionable for you this week is to ask yourself this: “What do I need to stop doing?”
Your answer might incorporate some of the other Good to Great lessons too. For example, you might need to STOP keeping the wrong people on the bus. Or maybe you’re on the doomloop and need to STOP doing things that will prevent you from ever being on the flywheel.
Leave me a comment below and let me know one thing on YOUR “Stop Doing” list this week or click here to share it in a tweet!
