Full Recap:

It is Thirsty Thursday and Dan needs a drink! As discussed on an almost daily basis, things aren’t always going to go as planned. There are going to be disappointments and roadblocks to navigate. When the world starts beating up Dan a little bit, he likes to turn to some motivational quotes and stories shared by leaders in other industries. These are people who have achieved great success and are willing to share their stories and ideas. What better way to help kick the roadblock blues?

In today’s world everything is moving at the speed of light. Everything is happening fast, and results are expected quickly. Too many times we can focus on getting things done quickly instead of getting things done right. It is important to remember that sometimes slowing down and spending a few extra minutes thinking about and executing your plan can save you time and headaches down the road. Sometimes doing the simplest thing is the right answer, but it must also be the right thing. Moving quickly from one task to the next by only focusing on what is the quickest and easiest solution is a recipe for disaster.

On the other hand, don’t go out of your way to over complicate things. Every single new task and project does not need to be the recreation of the wheel. There are apps and programs for almost everything nowadays, but sometimes just simple communication is all that is needed. Start by working in small groups with trusted people to get their insight. Grow the group as needed to get more opinions if necessary, but starting small helps eliminate too many voices overcomplicating what might be a simple answer. The main focus should always be on the best and most efficient way to solve the problem or complete the task, not the flashiest or “coolest” way to do it.
