The other day I told you how Dan Sullivan opened my mind to the possibility of being able to accomplish a WHOLE lot more than I do right now.
Even going so far to say that I could double the results I was getting right now.
He proved it was possible by asking one question.
That question was…
“If there were two of you, what could you achieve over the next 12 months, that you couldn’t achieve with just one of you”?
After asking that question, and having us write down our thoughts, Dan then followed it up with some more questions, that got us REALLY excited about the idea of making this idea a reality.
As I went through the exercise, it was as if I could see myself being twice as productive in all areas of my life.
Because let me tell you, I wasn’t going to limit myself to having two of me solely for the purpose of making my business better.
Since I was going to have two of me, I thought about all the ways I could improve my personal life as well.
Spending more time with my family, playing with Brock, and being more active in our family foundation.
And the funny thing is, by most people’s standards, I already have an incredible amount of control over my time.
I already spend lots of time with my family.
It just goes to show that entrepreneurs like us, when presented with an opportunity to improve, always want to do so.
That drive to improve and become better at what we do, never goes away.
In fact, it’s that drive that motivates us.
During the course of this exercise, Dan was doing a great job of bringing out this drive in us.
Once he’d done that, he had to follow through the rest of the way.
Can you imagine if he’d left us hanging after presenting this concept to us, and then didn’t show us how to make it a reality?
Now that he’d got us excited about the possibilities, he had to show us how to make it happen.
Or did he?
To bring everything together, Dan asked us a final question.
“In the absence of actually having two of you, how can you achieve each of these results using your existing resources”?
Talk about a powerful question.
And more important than the question, was the answers it brought to light for me.
In the process, it taught me the importance of asking the right questions.
Because when we do, our mind will give us the answers we need.
I’m guessing that you have some new answers at the moment, that you didn’t have prior to now.
Maybe you’d even like to share a few of them.
If so, the floor is yours.
