I learned this in an ActionCoach video and thought it worth sharing with you.
Brad Sugars of ActionCoach equates building a business or your life to building a tetrahedron – a triangle base with triangles on top. The basic concept is that you need to make the tetrahedron larger, with a stronger base. That will give us more space to add more to our tetrahedron – more to our business or our life.
For business, you would want to work on Sales and Marketing, Finance and Admin, and Operations. Build a strong foundation in each area, and you will make more room for customers at the top.
The same is true for improving you life – you will build a great life for yourself by working on your body, your spirit, and your mind.
You only get one body in this life – you need to work on your body the same way as you would as if you were given only one car for your whole life: take good care of it and it will last a lifetime.
Expanding your mind is critical for success and should never stop – read, listen, and learn.
Work on your spirit to increase your passion, your sense of self, your sense of being human.
Strengthening your body, mind and spirit will help you be more in tune with what Brad calls the Great Spirit (God, Buhhda – substitute what you are comfortable with here).
Our ultimate goal is to create a great life for ourselves. Working to make all of these areas stronger and better will create a better life.
