Ask These 4 Questions to Clarify Your Purpose in the World

Ask These 4 Questions to Clarify Yur Purpose in the World Article by Barry StilesBy the time I welches diagnosed with stage 4 neck and throat cancer, I had thought I was done with life-changing experiences for a while. In fact, I had been running the company that my previous life-changing experience inspired me to found for only six months when I got the call.What happened was this Five years before my own diagnosis, my then 4-year-old son was battling a rare form of lymphoma. I was witness to ur beautiful boys extraordinary bravery as he endured spinal taps and an extremely aggressive chemo treatment.During this time, I occasionally escaped for a short run around Rice University to clear my head. During one run around the decomposed granite track that circles the campus, as I was looking for answers to questions that had none, I realized how I could combine my skills and passions to make a tangible difference in the world.I saw clearly that I could m eld my skill set as an engineer and entrepreneur with my passion for family to help create a cleaner, less toxic environment for our kids. I envisioned a company that would keep plastic out of the oceans and landfills by using 100 percent post-consumer plastic, reduce carbon dioxide emissions by offering an eco-friendly alternative to concrete and asphalt, and cleanse toxic automobile pollutants through natural filtration of storm water. I wanted to make a real contribution toward a safer environment, and my sons bravery was the deep well from which I could draw inspiration.Years later, my own cancer treatment and recovery, coupled with the unending support of my team and our clients, sharpened the clarity of purpose I had found. No one person and no one company can eradicate cancer, but making strides in that direction has imbued our companys mission to improve our environment and communities by eliminating toxins and carcinogens that are present in our everyday lives with urgenc y and intention.I encourage you entrepreneurs, business owners, and dreamers to find fuel in your life challenges. The most trying times can clarify what motivates, inspires, and challenges you. When you see what lights your fire, go for it.You dont need a traumatic experience to take steps to clarify your purpose.Successful entrepreneurs rise, grind, stretch, and strive every day. They listen to clients, customers, and the marketdistributionspolitik and to their guts. They ignore the voices that tell them business is just business, that its not personal. Successful entrepreneurs know that if you make your business personal in a positive way, you can be a powerful agent for change.To clarify your purpose in the world, start by asking yourself unterstellung four questions1. Am I Happy?Are you passionate about what youre doing? Does it fulfill you? If you answered no, take some timetoconsider what you really love to do. What excites you so much that you lose track of time while doin g it? What do you find yourself reading about or doing when youre off the clock? When I reflected on this question, my passion was easy to name my kids.When you figure out whatyour passion is, ask yourself Is this a hobby or a business? If its something just for you, it may be a hobby. If it solves a problem, makes something easier for other people, or improves a product or a service, then it may just be a business you can commit to in the long term. Equally important, make sure there is a market or an audience who will find value in your offering. If it fits these criteria and makes the world a better place, youll have a clear purpose going forward.2. What Do I Want?What do you want to achieve so much that you will be motivated to learn, work, and sacrifice more than anyone to reach that goal? Overnight successes are illusory.What the world sees as sudden is in fact backed by years of work and dedication. Ask yourself whether your passion is strong enough and your goal is clear eno ugh.One way to figure out whether this passion will stay with you for any length of time is to write it down, put it aside, and come back to it in a month. For me, the drive to work toward a safer, cleaner, less toxic environment for my own kids and children everywhere was persistent and unflagging.3. What Do I Know?Once youve defined what you want to do, take inventory. Do you have the necessary skills? The appropriate education? The funds to get started? If not, map out a path to attaining what you need.As you make a plan, incorporate the ways your existing skill set will help you achieve your larger goal. The business I developedbrought together my skills product design, invention, engineering and my passions for manufacturing in the US and cleaning the environment. My primary taskat the start wasto shore up the capital and the material resources to begin my journey.4. Can I Solve a Problem?What is the gap between what exists and what is needed? Is your solution new or differ ent? Search the internet and scour retail to find out. Do a patent search, either on your own or with a patent attorney. Talk (and listen) to your potential customers.Having done this research, build a prototype of your product or write a detailed plan for your service. Assess the market potential for what you offer and once again consider whether you have something that solves a problem, improves someones health, or makes a process easier or better. This due diligence will help you determine just how the purpose you have found contributes to the greater social good. It will also show you whether you can be the best at doing it and find a place for yourself in the market.Finally, ask yourself Will it be fun to do this work? My research showed me that the solutions I proposed werent already in the marketplace. This freed me to anticipate how much fun I would have making permeable paving surfaces that snap together, like playing with Legos in the real world.Having a child with cancer was a bracing wake-up call for me about what really matters in this life. The surreality of the whole experience forced me to stop and listen, pause my entrepreneurial ambitions, and find a deeper purpose. Because I did, I was given the gift of making a difference.Yes, there are many inspirational stories of people who find clarity because of traumas that wipe away the fog of the busyness of life, but its not necessary to experience trauma to find clarity for yourself. Just slow down, listen to your inner voice, and commit to change. When you clarify your purpose, it will be fun to go to work and your business will benefit exponentially.A version of this article originally appeared on Stiles is the founder and CEO of TRUEGRID Pavers, the 100 percent permeable paving alternative to concrete and asphalt that instantly absorbs stormwater and detains water below the surface. TRUEGRID is a green, permeable, Lego-like paver system for the real world, made in the US from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic and filled with gravel or grass for a natural aesthetic. As an engineer and as a dad, Barry is passionate about TRUEGRIDs mission to provide green paving solutions to build a safer and cleaner environment for our kids.

The #1 reason to set unrealistic goals (and its not achieving it)

The 1 reason to set unrealistic goals (and its leid achieving it)The 1 reason to set unrealistic goals (and its not achieving it)There are certain keystone accomplishments that open-up unforeseen and unanticipated doors.These accomplishments are things you do one time that continue to yield opportunities, relationships, collaborations, and ongoing growth. Dan Sullivan, the founder of Strategic Coach, calls these strategic byproducts or unanticipated side-effects.Most of these accomplishments require that you take a leadership role and actually create something.You cant be passive. You must be innovative, creative, and generous. Youve got to work a few years like few people will so you can spend the rest of your life like few people can.One of my mentors, Richie Norton, told me that having a bestselling book was one of those achievements. Im still making money and getting opportunities from the book I wrote over 5 years ago Riche told me. Something in his words sunk-in.I already wante d to be an author - but I underestimated all of the things that becoming a bestselling and traditionally published author would do for me.I also unanticipated everything Id need to do and become in order to write at the level I wanted to.If you want to do something at the absolute highest level, you need to become a polymath - which means youve mastered multiple things, not just one.Youve got toLearn how to set and quickly achieve goalsKnow what to focus on FIRST in order to get confidence and momentum (confidence is a byproduct of winning, even making small wins) so start winning first thing in the morning by doing stuff like making your bed, writing in your journal, going for a walk or a workout, listening/reading to powerful books/podcasts/music, and producing a meaningful result in the first 90120 minutes of your dayGet organizedMaster your time and manage your energy (youve got to know WHEN and WHAT to focus on) mornings are generally best for strategic and creative workDisc ern what really matters and what doesntDevelop mentorships and maximize those mentorships, which means you 1) grow THEIR business, 2) unravel your limited subconscious patterns through transformational learning experiences, 3) quickly learn from them to succeed at their level and beyond, 4) and continue to sing their praises for the rest of your life (as Michael Fishman has said, Self-made is an illusion. There are many people who played divine roles in you having the life that you have today. Be sure to let them know how grateful you are.)Brute-force learn a subject (and multiple other subjects), which means you 1) quickly gather the most important information, 2) test that information, 3) reframe your perspective because of that information, and 4) produce new results because of that informationA new definition of learningYou didnt learn something if you cant produce a new outcome. Thats all learning is - the ability to produce an outcome. - Dan SullivanCan you produce the result you want?What must you learn and become to produce the result you want?Learning requires making a permanent improvement to your perspective and behavior.Learning means you see, feel, and live different. It means you can consistently produce better outcomes than you previously could.You become a NEW and UPGRADED version of yourself. And you should do this over, and over, and over. Personality isnt intended to be a fixed and unalterable trait. Rather, your personality is a state that continuously changes, adapts, and evolves.Identity is fluid and highly flexible if youre willing to learn new things. The problem for most people is that they stop ACTIVELY learning new things. Sometime in their late 20s or early 30s, they stop pushing themselves into situations that force them to purge-out limiting and suppressed subconscious patterns.Emotions get stuck at the subconscious level. Suppressed emotions freeze your personality and keep you living in the past, unable to process and seek new experiences that TRANSFORM you.Just as emotions are what keep you stuck, emotions are also what pull the suppressed patterns up to the surface so you can create new patterns. In order to get to the next level, you need to have EMOTIONAL and transformational experiences. Breaking-down and crying is one thing. But more, Im talking about doing stuff that you consider outside of your comfort zone - outside of what youve defined yourself as. As Joe Polish has said, In order to have a breakthrough you have to break something. Get out of your comfort zoneYoure not an introvert or an extrovert. Those are labels and boxes youve put around your behaviors, patterns, and beliefs.You can learn (and unlearn) all of those things. You can produce new results. You can create a new identity, new worldview, and new ability to operate in the world with people.What happened when I tried (and failed) to write a New York Times bestsellerAs I said earlier, I decided I wanted to write a bestselling book. I n order to get a traditional book deal, I learned that I needed to build an online platform. That concept was entirely foreign to me just a few years ago.Cant I just write a book? I thought to myself.Of course not. If it was that easy, everyone would do hard stuff.Its not the activity itself. Its all of the stuff you need to do (and master) to even GET IN THE GAME that will test and prove you.You qualify yourself by putting yourself in the role, and acting into that role. Your behavior shapes your identity. You can become who you intend to be if you begin living that way, today. Not tomorrow.In order to become a successful author, heres just a small handful of things Ive had to learn in the past 3 yearsBuild a websiteWrite articles onlineGet those articles viewed by 1000000s of peopleTurn readers into email subscribersMaximize every online impression I gotReach out to my favorite writers and find-out how I could help them achieve their goalsMake money with my artSell and launch prod uctsInvest money into myself and my educationSpeak more powerfullyFail a lotForget about what other people think about meRedefine who I am and what I do (over and over)Use my time wellGet into flow regularlyLearn fasterInnovate and be creativeHire and train full-time employeesMake large sums of money and invest nearly all of it back into further education, mentoring, experiences, technology, consultants, flights, hotels, etc. etc. etc.Put simply, my path to becoming an author took me down a rabbit-hole of having to master a million other things. If you told me 3 years ago when I was first starting this journey that Id need to hire and train employees, I wouldnt have believed you.If youre seeking TRANSFORMATION, not just achievements, youll be willing to become whatever your path requires you to become.Do it.Once it came time to launch my book, I didnt end-up hitting my original goal of becoming a New York Times bestseller. Although I didnt hit that goal, what I learned trying to hit that goal was worth infinitely more.When you learn something - truly learn it - you OWN it. Its part of you. If you learn how to do a lay-up in basketball, you can do it again and again. You can replicate the result.If you learn how to make a million dollars, you can do it again. And again. And again.This is why you set unrealistic and ridiculous goals, because the path to those goals will change you. Hence, Jim Rohn said, Become a millionaire not for the million dollars, but for what it will make of you to achieve it.What you learn and become is far more important than your previous accomplishments. In fact, if you over-attach yourself to those accomplishments, youll get stuck in a role and identity.What you learn and become is far more important than the accomplishment itself.What you learn is how to produce certain results. You learn how to operate in the world differently.You learn how to learn, and deal with uncomfortable emotions. You also learn how to regulate those emotio ns, because every step you ascend into your personal development will bring-up all sorts of suppressed pain and trauma.Every step you take up, youll have to redefine yourself and the world in a better and more empowering way.What are you trying to accomplish?Are you learning?Are you transforming?Are you able to produce new and better results?What accomplishment would PUSH YOU TO GROW and would also open tons of doors?Your goal becomes the vehicle for learning a ton, developing skills, and creating life-changing relationships.Two types of goalsCrave the result so intensely that the work is irrelevant. - Tim GroverIn psychology, there are two types of goals - achievement and mastery.Achievement goals are all about getting a certain outcome. They are extrinsically motivated.Mastery goals are all about what you learn and become. They are intrinsically motivated.Both are incredibly important. Seeking certain outcomes WHILE seeking mastery is totally possible.Actually, being fully fixate d on either the extrinsic OR the intrinsic can get you stuck.If youre purely Achievement-oriented, then youll never be happy, no matter what you accomplish. Youll fail to realize that the journey truly is the destination.If youre purely Mastery-oriented, you likely wont push yourself as hard as you could. A better approach is pushing yourself to the limits trying to hit a certain milestone. If you dont hit it this time, re-evaluate and try again. Just cause you didnt hit it this time doesnt mean you wont. However, dont forget about all that youre learning and becoming along the way.If you leverage BOTH intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, its like double-dipping. You get the best of both worlds.You can master both byBeing clear on WHY youre pursuing what youre pursuingExpect everything and attach to nothing - expect the best things to happen, have faith and hope, and yet dont over-attach to any specific outcome whether good or schwimmbadRe-adjust your goals when you get new informat ionAchieve your goals regularly and quicklyNever stop learningNever stop honing your motivation and WHY - it really is about other people - as Viktor Frankl said, For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of ones personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of ones surrender to a person other than oneself. Similarly, Christ said, He that findeth his life shall lose it and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.Take plenty of time, regularly, to connect with yourself and your WHYOnly develop TRANSFORMATION-based, not TRANSACTION-based relationshipsWhat unrealistic goal are you pursuing?The greatest dreams are always unrealistic. - Will SmithAre you pursuing something completely unrealistic?If not, youre missing-out huge. Youre missing-out on BECOMING something totally different and better.Youre missing out on several emotional breakthroughs. Youre missing out on LEARNING and transforming both yourself and others.Set huge goals. Pursue them with insane persistence. Learn everything you MUST in order to achieve them.The learning and BECOMING is the most important part. Learning means youve expanded how you see and operate in the world. It means you can consistently produce better outcomes.Learn.Ready to upgrade?Ive created a cheat sheet for putting yourself into a PEAK-STATE, immediately.

Take Control of Your Career Through a SWAG Analysis

Take Control of Your Career Through a SWAG AnalysisTake Control of Your Career Through a SWAG AnalysisDo you feel like your career is stuck in neutral and your professional destiny is in the hands of others? Rookies and seasoned professionals alike experience this sentiment once if not several times throughout their careers. The solution? Take control through a SWAG analysis.I created the concept of a SWAG analysis after moving from investment banking to venture capital. As an investment banker at Goldman Sachs I found the biannual 360-degree reviews, which are tied to bonuses and other forms of recognition, to be quite effective. But there was no such system in distribution policy at the first venture capital firm I joined. My managers were reactive about personal career growth. If I had simply accepted the situation, I would have made very slow progress in my career advancement.I joined my first venture firm with modest expectations- I would under-promise and over-deliver. My salar y was below that of all the assistants in the office, and I borrowed money to invest in our fund. Before long, I brought in several new investments that led to great fund successes, and I recruited several high-impact vice presidents for the firms portfolio companies. The venture capital partners were appreciative of my achievements, yet that appreciation didnt translate into a promotion. Thats when I took action through this SWAG analysis, which I presented to my managersThis SWAG analysis served four purposesIt conveyed to my managers that I was motivated to grow professionally.It demonstrated I had the self-awareness to identify both my weaknesses and strengths.It served as documentation of my accomplishments.It conveyed that I was focused on delivering on my goals.My managers reacted positively. Over time they used the SWAG analysis to benchmark my successes every six months. Eventually they promoted me.The key takeaway here is that you can take control of your career advancemen t, and the SWAG analysis is a great vehicle for self-evaluation and communication to your managers.If youre in a lokalitt of leadership at your company, use the SWAG analysis to empower your employees and foster an environment of self-assessment and goal-setting.Give the SWAG analysis a whirl, and send me a tweet on your thoughts.

When Taglines Get Lost In Translation

When Taglines Get Lost In TranslationWhen Taglines Get Lost In TranslationAlmost every brand has a tagline. And some brands have multiple taglines for multiple products, including Proctor Gamble, Pepsi, and Chrysler Jeep. You may not have given this much thought, but what happens when some of Americas greatest taglines are put through the translation filter? Its not actually as cut and dry as simply hitting the translate button, due to different cultural references. For instance, in some countries, it is common practice to put a picture of the product inside the can on the label. Imagine how they would react to baby food or dog food So, we went through the advertising archives to find some of the best examples of tagline crash-and-burn. Although its funny, its also very expensive to these companies (and embarrassing to the copywriters). If they dont do their homework, they could end up paying millions of dollars in reprint costs, reshoots and apology ads. Heres the list, in no par ticular order. We start with the most famous of the last few decades. COORS Tagline Turn It LooseAH, who doesnt love an ice-cold beer on a hot summer day? The tagline from Coors, Turn It Loose, was based around setting the flavor of Coors free. Alas, the Spanish translation made people think they were setting something else freeSpanish Translation Suffer From Diarrhea Pepsi Tagline Come Alive With the Pepsi GenerationSounds great, doesnt it? In fact, its not a million miles from some of the taglines being used by todays energy drinks. However, it didnt go down to well in China. After it was put through the translation machine, it came out asChinese Translation PepsiBrings Your Ancestors Back from the Dead KFC Tagline handglied Lickin GoodMmm, mmm, mmm. Which meat-eating connoisseur doesnt like to tuck into a plate of hot, crispy fried chicken? Well, once again this tagline fell foul of Chinese translation, becoming something quite the opposite of tastyChinese Translation Eat Your Fingers Off Parker Pens Tagline It Wont Leak In Your Pocket and Embarrass YouNot the catchiest tagline but its a straight-up brand promise. After all, who wants nasty ink stains on their crisp shirts and blouses? But the folks at Parker made one small snaffoo. They thought the Spanish word embarazar meant embarrass. Nope. And this is how the ads ran in MexicoSpanish Translation It wont leak in your pocket and make you pregnant Milk Tagline GOT MILK?Its one of the most famous, and most copied, taglines ever. We all know it. However, Latin consumers also got to know it for all the wrong reasons. They must have thought the American Dairy Association were smoking something very strong when this came outSpanish Translation ARE YOU LACTATING? Coca-Cola Product Coca-ColaAnother example of things going haywire in China. In the 1920s, Coca-Cola decided to export its product to China, but wanted a name for it that sounds similar to the English pronunciation. After some bac k and forth, they went with a phonetic translation, and the result was quite confusingChinese Translation Bite the Wax Tadpole Electrolux Tagline Ingenting Suger Som en Electrolux.You are forgiven if you dont know what the tagline means. Its Swedish and comes from the home of Swedens famous vacuum cleaner manufacturer Electrolux. However, when they used the tagline in the USA, it translated well with one unfortunate drawback - in the USA, sucks has more than one meaningEnglish Translation Nothing Sucks Like an Electrolux General Motors Tagline Body by FisherBody By Fisher is not actually a tagline but a sub-brand of GM. It was basically responsible for a lot of the bodywork done on GM cars (and was bought out by GM in 1925). Of course, there was a glitch with the name. This time, it was Belgium that had the problem, and its not something that makes any car alluringBelgian Translation Corpse by Fisher Ford Product PintoAgain, not quite a tagline, this was the model of a car you know all too well. But in Brazil, its not a bean. Well, not unless youre talking about the frank or the beans. Yes, PINTO was probably the most insulting name you could give a car. They changed it to the CORCEL, which means HORSE. Good thing tooPortuguese Translat?ionTiny Male Genitals Perdues Chicken Tagline It Takes a Tough Man to Make a Tender ChickenPerdues chicken has been producing its products since 1920, and put himself on TV saying the infamous tagline it takes a tough man to make a tender chicken. Lovely play on wordsin English. Of course, when it got translated into Spanish, something went awry, and Frank was saying something best put in the WTF CategorySpanish Translation It Takes an Aroused Man to Make a Chicken Affectionate Otis Engineering Tagline Completion EquipmentOtis Engineering has significant ties to Halliburton, and so its a different kind of scandal that usually rocks the boat here. However, when Otis was asked to take part in a Moscow exhibition , it did so and got a little help from the translation department. It probably had the most interest it has ever had in its productsRussian Translation Equipment for Orgasims Clairol Product Mist StickWhat is it? Not a deodorant but a curling iron. Clairol launched the product in Germany under the same name, not realizing that mist is manure in that country. Sales of the product were appallingGerman Translation Manure Stick Hunt-Wesson Product Gros Jos(Baked Beans)At last, a flub that didnt actually hurt sales And youll soon see why. When Hunt-Wesson launched its brand of baked beans in Canada, it was surprised at the sales figures. They didnt realize that the term means, well, see for yourselfFrench-Canadian Translation Big Breasts McDonalds Product Big MacIf youve ever watched Pulp Fiction (and if not, why not?) youll know the whole McDonalds issue with the Royale With Cheese. It turns out, of course, that theres another issue on the table. Big Mac, translated into Fre nch, became Gros Mec. And this means something very differentFrench Translation Big Pimp Braniff Airlines Tagline Fly in LeatherOh, what a promise. In 1987, Braniff Airlines introduced some very new and stylish leather seats to their planes. The tagline seems perfectly fine until its translated into Spanish. Then, its a proposition that most of us would not want to happen, at allSpanish Translation Fly Naked

What genetics say about whether youll keep your New Years resolutions

What genetics say about whether youll keep yur New Years resolutionsWhat genetics say about whether youll keep yur New Years resolutionsSo many of us start out with good intentions at the beginning of a new year. And then those intentions land in the garbage when we realize we really havent changed all that much just because we have a new calendar.Its an easy cop-out to blame something else for our failure to keep our New Years resolutions. We can blame our work schedules, or gym prices, or family matters that got in the way. But can we blame our very predispositions? Can we blame our genes?Personal genomics and biotechnology company 23andMe set out to answer that very query. Each March for the last three years, the DNA testing group asked consenting customers two questions Did you make a New Years resolution this year? and if so, How well have you been able to follow your New Years resolution until now?Then, researchers used customer answers in a genome-wide association study to see if genetics predisposed any particular set of people to keep their resolutions while others foundered.At this point, some readers may grow weary. After all, anything that tries to study natural genetic inclinations sounds like it may lean toward eugenics and Social Darwinism - two fields of thought that have grown antiquated with the passage of time, as people have realized that both have racist underpinnings.But the 23andMe research does not seem to wander into problematic territory in fact, researchers found that the adherencegenome-wide association study did not yield any genome-wide significant hits (though they noted the analysis was underpowered and might need more responses for interesting results). Instead, factors for whether people kept their resolutions were much more practical and environment-dependent.Who sticks to resolutions?Women are really good at pointing out their own flaws. 23andMe found that theyre much more likely to make New Years resolutions than men, which probably isnt all that surprising. Without risking stereotyping, its safe to say at least some women focus a lot on self-improvement and self-realization, and magazines and other cultural touchstones are constantly telling women how to be better.But though men may make fewer resolutions, theyre more likely to keep them once they do. The same goes for older people - though theyre less inclined to come up with that original goal, they stick with the one they make.Why do some people succeed?Though wed all like to blame our genetics for our failings, researchers at 23andMe said that genetic effects we identified here are mild. They cited influencers such as picking reasonable goals and having a supportive environment as other forces that affect whether we see our resolutions through.So instead of resolving to run that marathon after avoiding the treadmill for years, maybe its a good idea to go on a 20-minute walk every day. Or instead of giving up our favorite dessert forever, perhaps its enough to limit consumption to once a month. Little steps can turn into big strides, no matter our genetic code.
