Week #09, Time keeps on slippin, slippin, into the future..

Week #09, Time keeps on slippin, slippin, into the future..

Week nine has arrived. If this year was your whole 100 year life, you would be 17 years old!  You are in the prime of this year's life!

It's time to walk over to your 4K Weeks Poster, and fill in one more square... Done?

3 things up top this week:

1) I have made one purposeful mistake with this week's email. I will give a free Year Goal Countdown poster to the first 5 people who reply to this email with the correct answer... one hint: words.  Boosh!

2) The answer to last weeks puzzle is HERE. Most people assume that the white space around the puzzle isn't available.  Which mirrors what we all think about what is "possible" in our real lives... There was a time when a sub 4 minute mile was "impossible" 

3) We have new POSTERS!!! Take a look here. multi-colored squares, a horizontal version, a "fade to black" version, and... for those of you with super old grandparents... a 125 year version for every poster... come on with that longevity!!! Want 15% off the new posters? Email me.

Keep changing the world!

This Week's Quote

" You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life." - Winston Churchill
Maybe I'll make some enemies here...
Churchill was a racist.  Responsible for the deaths of millions of Indians in the Bengal Famine. Those two things are true. No impartial look at history can argue otherwise.
But... his brain worked pretty well in other areas, and this is one great quote among many.
Taylor Swift... one of the modern era's great songwriters... (am I making more enemies?????) says this well in her song "Cardigan".
"A friend to all is a friend to none."
Stand up! Have strong opinions! DAMN THE TORPEDOES!

What I am Thinking About This Week

"Thank you for holding, your call is very important to us, our next available client services professional with be with you momentarily"
No. It is not. If it was, you would have hired enough people so that I am not on hold for 40 minutes. (This is the message on my bank's phone system. Small local bank, gobbled up by a huge one.)
We know most companies don't actually care about you more than they care about their profits. It's usually only insulting when they try to tell us OVER AND OVER again that they do. (this message was repeated every 20 seconds for 40 minutes, they really DO care about making me think they care!)
Profit is important, no doubt.  Actually valuing your customers usually protects and improves your profit.
Show up for the people in your life with ACTIONS. Your customers, your friends, your neighbors... Words are wind.
If you do that, the profits will take care of themselves.  
Thanks for being a part of the journey with us! Please tell me if you liked/disliked the email this week.  Ask my wife... those are the only emails I like to get!
