Many people function in terms of things they need to start doing.

  • I need to start exercising.
  • I need to start listening more closely.
  • I need to start saving money.

For each action above, there is an underlying goal. Improving health, relationships, and financial security are noble goals indeed! But what is the reason for the desire to embrace these “starts?” Perhaps the reason is simple, one’s health, relationships, and financial well-being may all be suffering.

So I must ask the question: How did you get there?

In Chapter 7 of Good to Great, Jime Collins asks the question: Do you have a stop doing list? At first it seemed like a trivial question. But the more I considered it, the more it gained meaning.

We so often look to “starts” to improve, but we often overlook the actions that landed us in our current state. If your health or your relationships or your financial state is suffering, what actions got you there? Perhaps creating a stop doing list should be your first step.

And yes, this goes for your organization also. Great organizations not only follow through on important initiatives and processes, they also identify unimportant ones and simply stop.

Usually, I write a different seed for leaders and VLC, but I think this is crucial to our success. We are in the midst of evaluating many of our processes here at VLC. We have added zoom meetings to our consulting calls. We have added and will continue to add personnel. We are adding responsibilities to each consultant.

But we also must keep a close eye on things we can cut loose.

In becoming a better team member, what is one thing you should stop doing immediately?

In our organization, which weaknesses can be addressed by not doing something?

Which extraneous actions by either you or VLC do not move us toward being the best in our field?

Be well,
