Make an 'early inclussion'

It makes sense to include people rather than exclude them. But when we fail, when things don’t go right for us, the last thing we feel like doing is letting people into our lives. But that’s the time when we absolutely have to let people in. Rather than exclude people from our lives, it’s the time when we have to include others.

Let me give you an example: I was speaking in the country recently and there was a farmer, I’ll call him ‘Alan’, in his early 40s, the prime of his life, but he felt like a failure. His wife came up to me and said, ‘Pete, I really want you to talk to him, I’m really worried about him. He’s very upset, but he’s shutting everyone out.’

Like most people, I have I have been through considerable change in my life. In my first career, I owned retail pharmacies in Australia for 20 years. I graduated from university with a shiny degree in Pharmacy and honestly expected that I would dispense medicine until the day I retired.

Reflect, Rest and Reset


When you reach your big goal, your black belt, it’s obviously a time to celebrate and acknowledge how far you’ve come. You are awesome! You’ve done some amazing things! This is a critically important time to reflect on your journey and understand how the success came about. What combinations of people, processes, feedback and progress made this all work?
I firmly believe that we always need a big goal or project to work on. But you also have to give yourself the opportunity to simply enjoy your success. Rest and think before you set your next black belt goal and design your next journey.

What road will you choose?

This year I’ve been busy nearly every week travelling to speak and facilitate around the world and Australia. It’s been an exciting time and I have seen some amazing places and met some extraordinary people. But I’ve also met some people who I feel it’s necessary to question. To ask some serious questions, actually.

 

When I talk to business people in my travels, nine times out of ten they tell me that their partners and families are the most important people to them. But do they show that? Do they live that?
