328: Blame game ​

The Blame game is an ugly game played by people who are scared.

If you’re trying to do meaningful work and the game comes up, here are the rules:

  • Ricochet: If a finger is pointed at you, be sure to deflect onto somebody else. Bonus points if they aren’t paying attention, or aren’t part of the conversation.
  • Poker face: If you mess up during this game, be sure to not let anybody know. You lose points if you’re found out, instead of owning up to a mistake and using it as an opportunity to show your greatness.
  • The winner is the loser: The best player learns how to make good excuses, makes his/her colleagues doubt their integrity and, worst of all, gets better at playing the Blame game.

It’s a lousy game. You probably shouldn’t play it.

491: You Just Need One Thing

Expanding your work without focus or results is ‘diluting’, not ‘expanding’.
One acquisition channel, service system and retention model is all you need to grow to wild new heights.

488: “This might not work”

When we do work that matters, it’s important to remember, “this might not work”. Risk and responsibility come with the act of doing work that matters. If we can’t embrace it, why do it at all?

You are creating what matters.

So how can we help you
sell it better & make more impact?
