You are listening to Trinity employment’s, a player matchmaker podcast starring your host and the cofounder of Trinity employment specialists, Cory Minter. Hello and welcome back to the A-player matchmakers.
Always trying to find different ways to add value to job seekers and employers. And this particular topic is going to be for both. One thing that I have noticed, okay throughout all of the employers, employees, business owners, is that oftentimes it is so easy for us to get take on activities, put things on our calendar, take on tasks that are completely and totally outside of our design. What’s our design? Well, I’m glad you asked. There are 360 degrees in a circle and because we live in America, we can go do things in any direction that we want with our OKC Medical Staffing. It’s awesome. The freedom to be able to do that is amazing. But the oppression that comes to those that take on tasks that are not okay in their wheelhouse of gifting and when they get done with those particular tasks, it’s a drain on them. People that operate doing too many things that are outside of their particular design, it drains them. So this is the idea. If you can begin to understand your God-given abilities, things that when you do them, it is easy. It doesn’t stress you out. It energizes you. And when you do this particular thing, everything just seems to fall together because it’s so natural for you. I want to, I want to present an idea to you. Um, uh, starting with a quote by Albert Einstein, he said everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its entire life believing that it’s stupid.
So interrelation. If you begin taking on tasks that are not things that you’re naturally good at or energize you, it’s very easy for you to never be successful, work harder than anyone else and never understands why you can’t ever grab any traction. But one of the interesting things is that I have studied successful people ever since I can remember. I’ve just always had a natural interest in it. And one of the things that I’ve noticed in every successful person that I’ve studied or you wouldn’t believe the people that I get to be around with our OKC Medical Staffing, I get to be around some of the most successful people and not, not a ton, but I’m invited into the circle now. I once, I wasn’t for a long, long period, but now I’m getting invited to the circle and I’m learning more and more and more. And one of the things that I’ve learned that is in common with, with every super successful person that I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know and become very good friends with is that they are very, they have a clear vision on what their particular design is and that that is a good solid definition of what they should say yes to and what they should say no to. They say yes to only those things that energize them that they are naturally good at and when they, they just enjoy the roles that they play when they’re doing these things. They are very intuitive about what they liked and what they didn’t like in their past and they make decisions based on it every day.
So I’ve got a, I’ve got a, uh, uh, an analogy for you. Um, let’s, let’s just call this the Elan Musk verse Tom Brady a story. What if Tom Brady with all of his Superbowl ring spent his entire time trying to be the next tech giant or inventor or founder? Tom Brady has 14 probes he’s a three-time all-pro six super bowl championship rings. He’s six, four 225 pounds, net worth 580 million. And he spent all of his money hiring consultants to become the next tech giant. What do you think would probably happen to him? I think he would probably spend a ridiculous amount of time with our OKC Medical Staffing and energy the same amount he spent on being a quarterback and he’s got all the effort going into something that he will be marginally successful at and he will be frustrated the whole time scratching his head going, how in the world? Why in the world am I not successful? I’m trying harder than anyone else. Well, he’s not in his particular design. This dude is supposed to be a quarterback, not a tech giant. All right, but what if we did this? I said the same thing about Elon Musk. What if Elon Musk spent all of his time trying to be the next NFL star?
Elon Musk, a pretty successful guy. He’d probably put a lot of effort into it. He’s a founding member of PayPal, a founding member of solar city. I just went to NASA and saw his entire space program, which it looks like NASA is going to allow him to take astronauts into space. He’s the CEO of Tesla, six foot two 186 pounds net worth 20.2 Bubba billion. What if he spent all of like some time and a ton of effort hiring the best to be the next quarterback? Same thing. I think he’s only going to be marginally successful. And that’s with putting all of the efforts into it. And in his journey, he would be frustrated and he, we had no idea of why in the world is, are things not working out for me. See, we’ve got very successful people to successful people, but completely different designs and they operate. They were smart enough to find that design and spend all of their effort and energy in that area. See the top successful people, they spend 80% of their time at least operating in their particular design for a top OKC Medical Staffing.
Yeah. So you’ve got to have a clear vision of who you are and what you want to become. And if you don’t, you’re going to start saying yes to a lot of things. You should say no to a quote by pastor Craig Rochelle a long time ago. Uh, eh, he said, you must say no to grow. I remember a Warren buffet saying, listen, I say no to almost everything, almost everything. But he has a clear definition of what he says yes to the best OKC Medical Staffing.
So how, how did this happen for me? I, I, I began to learn this process and um, I got to a place where I was saying yes to everything. None of the things. Well, very few of the things I said yes to were in my particular design and my mentor David, even Eatons, he’s always told me, listen, you make decisions based on one or two things, pain or pleasure. Well, I got to a pain point that was so severe that I knew I had to change. And that is where I began to learn how important it was to understand what, what my design was. The way that people break it down is, um, and my good friend, uh, um, who wrote the one degree, um, he, he breaks things down in between greens and yellows and reds. Dave Jewitt is his name. I had a brain fart there.
Greens are abilities that you love to use. They naturally energize you. They give you a deep sense of satisfaction. You enjoy the results that they produce. You feel great when you get done doing your greens, yellows or abilities that you are very capable of doing, but they do not energize you at all. They’re neutral. They don’t, they don’t increase you. They do not decrease you. It’s just a neutral thing. Reds are abilities that you can use, but they drain you. You tend to procrastinate these abilities. You don’t want to do them. It’s the last thing on your agenda that you have that you want to do and you feel horrible. You feel just a pleaded when you get done with, it’d be like me sitting in front of an Excel spreadsheet all day. I would feel depleted. Ugh. But you’ve got to become, to be, to learn how to be very intentional, to begin to learn about who you are. And it’s very difficult to try to teach you how to learn this, but you can begin assessing every activity that you do in and labeling it red, green, or yellow. And if you take a look at your calendar over the next two months, write down all of the events and rate it red, green, or yellow, and ask yourself, should, can, can I delegate this item? If I can’t delegate it, um, well then, or if you can delegate it, who should you delegate it to? And when with our OKC Medical Staffing?
Assessing your calendar should give you a general idea of your design. And if you begin to intentionally think about how you feel, feel after each activity, you can begin to develop a definition of what you say yes to and what you say no to. How to choose the right job, how to develop helpful information to share with your manager about what energizes you and what drains you. Because we don’t want someone to wake up one day completely drained in a good job, but not realizing, yeah, that you just don’t like life because you spend most of your time doing things that do not energize you at all. So in this next podcast, I’m going to begin to show you how you can begin to change and think about how you do this. I’m a reference point for you is your one degree.com Dave Jewitt is the author of this curriculum. I know him personally. He is sent this to people all over the country and all of the world, and, he’s just a mentor to some of the most successful people that I’ve ever heard of before, and I think that he’s great.
