Show Notes

  • Some entrepreneurs have tremendous opportunity and capabilities but can’t get their act together because they approach work incorrectly.
  • All work projects in the world go from leadership to management.
  • To get anything done in a entrepreneurial company there are three things that are essential: someone has to make up the project or the idea, the project manager makes it real, and then team members make it something that can recur.
  • All multiplier growth in the world requires three things: make it up, make it real, make it recur.
  • The first 80% of work is just making it up. The vast majority of people are waiting for someone else to make something new.
  • Take the remaining 20% and do an 80/20 divide again, that’s where the project manager resides. Then you do one more 80/20 divide for the recurring third step.
  • There is no money in making one microchip, but there is a lot of money in taking one great microchip and making a million of them.
  • As the entrepreneur, your role is confined to making it up and providing superbly clear directions so the project manager can take control and the team can make it recur.
  • No matter how good you think the first try at something is, it’s only 80% as good as it could be. If you can get it to that point, you can give it to someone else to take it further.
  • How many great projects never get off the ground because of people’s prison of procrastination and perfectionism?
  • Make a list of all the things that you are not moving forward because you are procrastinating on them.
  • There are two places where the explosive connection nature of the universe doesn’t apply: government and academia.
  • Linking up with other individuals with great abilities is a massive potential multiplier in your life.
