Thanks for the Voice Note Jonathan. I may have commented in a similar way to one of your previous podcasts, but just wanted to let you know it is always inspiring to listen to your podcasts and voice notes. Especially as a solo-entrepreneur. To get things done, I schedule thing in my agenda like doing a webinar or running an online session as promotion for my training and facilitation services. Those deadlines work for me since then I DO get things done!

Jonathan, thanks for the voicenote. I feel your pain. :-)

If you aren’t familiar already with this, check out workinggenius.com. My teams and I have taken the assessment and then mapped out our geniuses, competencies, and frustrations. No better way to ensure you’ve got the right people in the right seats on the bus.

Hi man! "Madd-Ice" here (my name phonetically something like this)

Still digesting your hypothesis. For 12 years I had to give up my own digital signage agency. I ran it for 3 years. Created a great product. Enthusiastic clients. 5 people working. Lots of ideas. But I had no finisher by my side. And I just didnt understand why I kept running in different directions....

The way Im handling it now is I move the needle away from the most important issues just to keep me going in the right directions with actions that are new and shiny :)

(And usually have a lot of social pressure)

But I guess I'll have to find a good, loyal, structured person to work with.

Anyway, I like the format. As long as you deliver value ;)

Keep it going Irishman!

Dude, so good. I’m like 2000% starter. Good points on embracing who you are.

Hey Jonathan, man does that resonate. Beyond blatant supporting evidence, did you take any of the various trait evaluations out there to drive home the point that you’re not a “finisher/completer”?

Love it! I Never can finish things too :) It resonated with me to not fight "inability to finish things" but accept and delegate to my team to finish

Like the format! Shorter length is inviting.
