Fast Tip Friday: The Inch Principle

Apr 12, 2024 7:00:00 AM

Hey, I'm going to reference one of my best resources, one of my best business relationships, here this week on fast tip Friday. This is a book that two people I know very well, John Condry and Paul Carpenter, wrote a few years ago. It's about management. It's not just sales management, it's just management in general.

The title is a simple but highly impactful idea… it's The Inch Principle, $21 million inches of management and the real core concept of this book is great success does not require great steps or great leaps or great changes, and it typically won't happen in one great moment.

You've got to have 21, in this case, John believes there's 21 critical but small steps that you can make to improve your effectiveness as a business manager or a personal manager, and if you shrink your focus to those types of thoughts and and impact moments, it'll have a much greater chance of leading to the success you want when you started the investment in it.

There's really some great stuff in here. Of course it's available on Amazon and all that kind of stuff, but there's a really great question on the back, and I think it's something we all need to ask ourselves from time to time. On the back, it says “you'd walk a mile for $1 million, but would you move an inch?”

If somebody is going to give me $1 million just to walk around the track four times, I'm in all day, every day, twice on Tuesdays if you want. If you really want to get serious, think about this… Are you committed enough to make the small but very, very impactful changes that seem insignificant or something I can do later?

Condry's challenging everyone to commit to 21 small inches of significant decision making in your life and in your business operation. I'm inviting all of you to look up John Condry's book, take a read, Growth Dynamics does some Co-training courses with John on the inch principle thoughts and practices of management.

If you'd like information on how to get connected to us and John for that training, we'd love to talk to you. If you'd like to talk to us about how to use it in your personal life, I would love to talk to you about that as well. So my advice this Friday, do a little bit of self investment. Either look it up, buy it, call Growth Dynamics about it, but start taking 21 small one inch steps and lead yourself to a more prosperous business each and every day with discipline focused and newly created but highly, highly impactful habits.

The Inch Principle -  $21 million inches of management. Highly recommended. Anyone can benefit. Thanks for letting me promote a little bit of someone that deserves it. Good luck to everyone. Have a great Friday, great weekend and rock and roll next week. Take care.
