- Sometimes fear of a consequence can be motivating
When it comes to setting your goals, one of the most powerful incentives you can set is a consequence for when you don’t do what you need to do. For Tony, that was donating $1,000 to KW Cares whenever he didn’t give his coach is 4-1-1 goals.
- Leverage often means firing yourself from a specific role so someone else can do it more efficiently
Tony ended up doing all the work in his organization, including taking photographs and doing the listing of the properties. Being a great photographer, he thought he could do it. His coach challenged him to “fire” himself from this role so he could hire someone else and leverage his business.
