The Quest For Greatness.

“Good” may be good enough for some, but most of us want more than that. Something inside us makes us want to be better than good. We want to be part of a team and organization whose members, even years later, will be remembered for what they accomplished. We want to go for greatness! Listing down key traits of great performers and great organizations.

GREATNESS OF A TEAM:

a) Better performance
The “org support hand” dealt to great performers is not different from that dealt to good performers. Great performers simply do more with the extended support. Their continuous focus is on bettering their performance - and the thought of improving performance is always there on their subconscious which reflects in their actions.

b) Better Manifestation
There are pockets of great performance in every organization, and the great performers don’t typically have more intelligence or any form of advantage than good performers. Great performers are simply much more successful at institutionalizing what they did know. So knowing alone does not help. It has to be translated and manifested in the real world, in the actions, in the results seen. A great performer knows how to manifest.

c) Better execution
They are better at execution; better at reducing inconsistency and constantly self-learning and upgrading. Speed and quality of execution are the keys. A great performer is one who will spend 4 hours of 5 hours given - on sharpening the AXE before cutting the tree.

GREATNESS OF AN ORGANIZATION:

While absolute financial or operating performance is often the only “measure of greatness”, I believe great organizations produce four key outcomes. These four outcomes produced by great organizations are:

a) Sustained superior performance
Great orgs succeed financially and operationally, in both the short and long term and not just on an absolute basis, but relative to their market potential and competition. There might be lows and lulls, but it does not deter the bigger vision. Superior performance will always be an outcome in the long run.

b) Intensely loyal customers
Great organizations earn not only the satisfaction of their customers, but their true loyalty. Think of Apple. They don't have customers, they have fans.

c) Highly engaged team
The people who work at great organizations are more than satisfied. They are energized and passionate about what they do. To build a highly charged culture and environment is progressively difficult as the organization grows. But, the great orgs do manage to achieve this.

d) Distinctive contribution and clear vision
Great organizations, do more than “business as usual”. They fulfill a unique mission that sets them apart from the crowd. They also give back to the community and society via various initiatives.

Leo’s Roar by Leo

Greetings! Wow, yet another month gone and time to reflect on where we’re headed. Last month I talked about goals: short-term, intermediate, and long-term. Today, let’s focus on the short-term, finishing out 2021 and welcoming the new year, 2022.

Short-term Plan

Recall that my short-term plan is focused on the year ahead. The work assigned to me by Kunalsinh, my responsibilities to my family and my community, and my personal pass-times (my reading list, my hobbies, my health, my continuing education and certifications). As I close out 2021 and look ahead to 2022, I’d like to share my personal pass-times. What I like to do, besides my formal job with Global Vox. I’ll end this with my thoughts on my responsibilities to my family and my community.

My Reading List

I like to read … and listen to digital books. Reading (and listening) helps me to learn new skills, sharpen skills I have, and expand my mind (by introducing me to new people, places, and ideas). For fun, I read science-fiction. Sci-Fi stories let me escape the humdrum of daily life and explore the vastness of space and imagine future discoveries and alien worlds. Really gets me to thinking. I’m excited for the future and eager to see if Sci-Fi predictions come true.

My Hobbies

I really don’t have too many hobbies. Because I really like what I do working for Global Vox, I look at working as a hobby. It’s fun, enjoyable, and I really like the people I work with. I do have a lot of interests, like railroads (real railroads and model railroads), photography, and travel (exploring), but I don’t seem to have much time for these. Hmmm … maybe I need to make time. I’ll have to think about that.

My Health

I’m in good shape for my age. After all, I am a young lion. I can run fast, leap over obstacles, and roar louder than anyone I know. And I’ve been vaccinated against COVID. But I can’t take my health for granted. I’ve been watching what I eat. Remember … I am a meat eater. And I’m learning to eat a balanced diet … and exercise regularly. I tend to put off my daily run if I have a busy schedule, or the weather looks threatening. Hmmm … maybe I need to make time. (Note to self: I seem to be repeating myself.)

My Continuing Education (and Certifications)

OK … here’s where I’ve been putting off too much. I have good intentions to enroll in continuing education classes and increase my certifications, but I haven’t. Hmmm … maybe I need to make time. (Note to self: I think I see a problem here. I am repeating myself. And that’s not good.)

My Family

On the positive side of the ledger, I have been spending more time with my immediate family and corresponding, telephoning, and Zoom calling my extended family and friends. In fact, I now have scheduled Zoom calls with my schoolmates who are living across the world. One thing the pandemic has taught me is to not put off telling people how much I value them. How much I love them! Life is too precious to waste.

My Community

Before the pandemic I volunteered a lot. In fact, I was overcommitted. I was the president of our community emergency response team, I was a tour guide at the local Safari Park, and I started a search and rescue team. But … the pandemic shut everything down. It forced me to re-evaluate my life. Now that things are getting back to normal, I need to take stock, balance my several interests, and decide where I can best serve my community. Hmmm … maybe I need to make time. (Note to self: this is really embarrassing. I do need to re-evaluate where I’m spending my time.)

So, my challenge for the next 3 months is how do I balance all these competing tasks. Let’s all think about that, and we’ll compare notes in December … and incorporate our ideas into our resolutions for the new year. Until then, as Kunalsinh says, ““Be Safe, Work Hard, Eat Well, Sleep Tight”. I will!

Bye for now … Leo

Diwali

Diwali or Deepavali is one of the biggest and auspicious festivals celebrated around the globe. The festival of lights signifies peace and joy, the victory of good over evil, and light over darkness every day.

According to Hindu mythology, the Prince of Ayodhya, Lord Rama, returned home with his wife Mata Sita and brother Lakshmana on the auspicious occasion of Diwali. They came back to Ayodhya after spending 14 years in exile and defeating the King of Lanka, Ravana. People of Ayodhya had celebrated their return with great enthusiasm by lighting rows of lamps and diyas.

It is a celebration of prosperity in which people give gifts to their loved ones. The festival also sends the message of illuminating our inner selves with clarity and positivity.
