A simple, yet profound thought from funny
man turned musical play write, Steve Martin.
Often there is little more you can do when
working toward a goal. Especially those
that require input or recognition from someone else.
When at those times, you best and only
option is to be “so good” that they have no option but to say yes or give you
the recognition you deserve.
In a world that is fraught with those who
seek to blame everyone for their shortcomings, you can stand out as original,
confident, and worthy of attention.
So how do you go about doing that?
It has been said that mastery requires
10,000 hours of effort to master a craft.
I certainly know that before I hire an advisor or businesses/life
consultant, that I do my homework and find out what have they done and who do
they work with now.
So, my advice to you is to do the work,
document the efforts and the results, and then craft the way you talk about
what you do using words that you hear from your tribe.
You may be the best at what you do in the
world, but if you cannot say it in a way that others will hear, then you are
just noise in the market place.
We all know that a better marketer will
beat a better talent every time.
You must be the best AND be the best at
