Resource or Resourcefulness? October 11, 2012

Anthony Robins at DreamforceWe have the expression in Swedish: The art of cooking a soup of a nail. Basically, to create something with very little or no resources. It comes from an old Scandinavian tale, telling the story of a man who made soup from a rusty nail.

Listening to Anthony Robins at Dreamforce in San Francisco recently, one of the key points that he had was: Resources are never the problem. Its the resourcefulness. Emotions are the ultimate resource. Creativity, commitment, determination, certainty, flexibility, connectivity, compassion, vision…

Which resource are you drawing upon today?

I am like an IKEA chair April 27, 2012

I think I got the best complement ever last week when I asked Rakesh about his perception of me, or why he asked the question the day before “if I am an excited person”.”Do you think I am?”, I asked him. The response was: “NO, I don’t get you. You are like an IKEA chair: you have a really good idea, and you are about to produce it not knowing that the market really wants it, and you will sell for a billion dollars”.

The truth of the matter is: I do believe that the market want this.
And funny enough: I already had IKEA in my vision statement.

This is my 2010 Dream – Vision – Purpose – Mission – statement, per the Michael E. Gerber E-Myth/Dreaming Room model:

Dream (WHAT):

To enable and capture transformational journeys worldwide.

Vision (HOW):           
To create the IKEA of transformational journeys documented.

Purpose (WHY & for WHOME):
Enable every individual who wants to make a change in their life and impact in this world to reach their dream, and at the same time inspire others.

Mission (HOW):
Create a state of the art journal software that will help the user ENVISION the future, EMBRACE the presence and ACHIEVE more than imagined, with the output of a well designed e-book or printed book.

Not only has Facebook and Timeline become, sort of, one of the competitors. Now, seeing the below video from CNN, I am  fearing that IKEA itself is tapping into my field… Although, the Herringbone solution is much more straight forward. 😉 I bet you would be willing to give it a try.
