LESSONS FROM THE TANK:
- What problem am I solving?
- What am I making better?
- How am I helping?
- Your product - because everyone wants a better mousetrap.
- Your job performance - because the person who solves the boss's problem (especially before they know they have one) wins.
- Your leadership - because people naturally follow the person who genuinely makes a difference.
On the flip side, we've all experienced that co-worker, employee, family member, or friend who focuses on the problems but settles for merely complaining. It's exhausting, demotivating, and creates a negative culture that leaves everyone who wants to do better feeling like they're swimming upstream.
Everyone can find a problem. There's no skill required for that. If you want to be influential, more fulfilled, and win in leadership and life, stand out by seeking solutions.
