Why You're Not Beyond Square One

Let’s pretend that you have to start again.
You are building from nothing — whether that’s a company, your career, or even if you’re an athlete sitting in your seat — which means today, you are at zero.
→ So where are you starting?
→ How are you setting it up?
→ What are you putting in place?
→ What is your operating mindset?
If you’re starting fresh right now and reading this newsletter, there is wisdom in being incredibly intentional in how you lay your square one foundations - if you are well established and reading this, you already know this is solidly the case.
If you are seasoned, I am certain that there are definitely things you would get into place from the start, ways you would develop a bit differently at various points than you had in the past. If you are an executive, there are likely things you might have focused on in a different way, and if you’re an athlete, maybe you
would adjust how you approached training or business relationships.
These are the things that lay the foundation for how your ambitions move forward, but they also embody a mindset. Pushing. Experimental. Curious.
Amazon, for example, is legendary for its “Day One” Mentality. One of the largest, most dominant enterprises of our time recognizes that bringing it back to basics, and doing them well, is the foundation of massive success…and this is something I also see, time and again behind the scenes of the companies and people doing great things.
Realistically, the way in which we move in our careers and business shifts as we gain experience. Some of these shifts are incredibly beneficial — and some, well, that same evolution leads people to hit ceilings and come into challenges they otherwise wouldn’t.
This edition is why, no matter how successful you are, you’re not beyond square one, and how to use this positioning to your advantage over and over again.
