Why The Strategy Circle Works: Part 1 with Joe Polish and Dan Sullivan


Episode Summary

The birthplace of all the thinking you do in Strategic Coach is The Strategy Circle. It’s the foundation for your future breakthroughs, and it’s a simple four step process. In this episode of 10x Talk, you’ll learn about this four-step process called “V.O.T.A.” and how to use it to transform both your past and your future.

Here’s a glance at what you’ll learn from Dan and Joe in this episode:

  • What the Strategy Circle is and the origin story of how Dan created it.
  • V.O.T.A.: The formula for creating your bigger entrepreneurial future.
  • The importance of obstacles for achieving your best results and biggest goals.
  • How to fill out a Strategy Circle.
  • Taking Responsibility: Why 90% of any problem is that it bothers you.

Show Notes

  • V.O.T.A. is the secret code within the Strategy Circle.
  • V.O.T.A. stands for Vision, Opposition, Transformation, and Action.
  • Dan believe that every success started with a conscious or unconscious use of the VOTA code.
  • We’re drawn to the past by pain and the future by the possibility of relieving pain – but our obstacles are in the present.
  • Fully identify and engage the obstacles that stand between you and the payoff.
  • Dan noticed a pattern after working with eighty clients of all levels; that pattern inspired the creation of the Strategy Circle.
  • Adrenaline keys you up for performance – it doesn’t always indicate fear.
  • Dan used a mirror to improve his filming performance – he faced the obstacle and found a solution.
  • The Strategy Circle involves your team so they can be involved in the follow-through activities.
