Just Four Words To Generate Your Power

Napoleon Hill created a definition of power as:
“Organized Knowledge Intelligently Applied”.

Just four words.

  • Organized means available when you need it, in the form you need.
  • Knowledge is not just data, it is what to do.
  • Intelligently or “strategically” means for a clearly defined purpose.
  • Applied means action is taken in the real world.

Deming spoke about the massive waste in the world due to our continued struggling under “wrong theory”.  You know, like when your business is stuck – and your answer is to “work harder and longer”.

Just like talking louder and louder to people who do not understand your words.

My strength is in helping people move between levels.  Check purpose and strategy at 30,000 feet, then deliver precise action at ground level, then review from 30.000 feet. Use power effectively.

A system cannot adjust itself, it must have external intervention.  And the “power” of every system is determined by the process with which it is created.

Your coach can help you step outside, analyse, determine what to change, then step back in and move ahead.

About the Author Business Coach James Hooper

Townsville based James Hooper: The term "rainmaker" is becoming regularly used in business context as someone whose role is to 'make rain' or 'create growth' in your business. In some senses the term 'business coach' is limiting as it is primarily about optimizing the effectiveness of the owner/operator. Sometimes the leverage is in the business systems rather than in the operator - and focus on that produces the preferred outcomes. Business is a game, a puzzle, a tool to get you what you want in life. Call me for a second opinion (other than yours) on how to make your business give you what you want it to.
