Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady Brainstorm, TEAM
Wow!! Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady are at it again. It is amazing when these 2 TOP 15 Leadership Gurus get together and brainstorm. Great things usually result and it looks like this time was no difference. What an amazing way to gage where you are at right now, set goals, and keep track of your progress as you improve your skills in each area of life, using the LIFE products and great mentors available on TEAM. Thank you, Bill, for letting us know about this. -Holger
Orrin of the-team.biz has come up with another great illustration to describe the 8F growth process. I have seen a simliar diagram used to visually show improvement in a persons golf game. These kind of diagram are great because they give an immediate feedback on how you are doing. bill lewis
Chris Brady and I flew up to Atlanta for a 6 hour mastermind session on Tuesday. Here is one of many concepts that were generated from brainstorming together. Generating ideas with Chris Brady is like drinking water from a firehose – fast and furious! I love our 17 year business partnership! LIFE is something special and I have never felt as good about community building as I do today. Laurie and I started a new leg 10 days ago and it is now over 10 levels in depth! The LIFE Business is good because it helps people become good in their Circle of LIFE. Here is Brady’s article explaining what our products do in a person’s life. Sincerely, Orrin Woodward
I had a very engaging conversation with my friend and co-author Orrin Woodward today. As usual, we kicked around a ton of stimulating ideas and pieced together something that, in our estimation, will immediately convey greater understanding as to the purpose of the LIFE business. (See the inset diagram).
In each of the 8 F categories of Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Following, Freedom, Friendship, and Fun, one can imagine a certain grade based upon how one is doing in that category. In the diagram the center represents horrible, as in, you are totally “stinking up the joint” (as my kids say) in a certain category. Working your way out from the center to the outer ring in any of the categories represents a stronger grade. So someone with a dot near the outer ring is doing well in that category. By connecting the dots on your subjective personal estimation of your life at this moment in each of the categories you can come up with a shape that roughly represents your life right now in each of the 8Fs.
Quite simply, the LIFE business supplies life-changing information to help you increase your score in each of the 8Fs. The goal is to take someone from the not-so-good black shape represented toward the center of the diagram to the much improved (and happier, we would think) life represented by the red outline toward the outer ring of the circle.
Who doesn’t have at least a category or two, or three, or eight, in which he or she would like to have a better score? Who wouldn’t want to transform his or her life from the tiny blob (and who among us hasn’t felt like a tiny blob from time to time?) in the center to the big wheel (and who hasn’t wanted to be a big wheel at least once in his or her life?) toward the outer ring?
That’s it. From little blob to big wheel.
But all kidding aside. This CIRCLE of LIFE is the snap-shot diagram to which people can easily relate when it comes to understand the goal of LIFE and the life-changing information we offer. We will help people learn and apply truth in each category and thereby improve their shape.
LIFE: Because leadership is for everyone!
This is so good, I think it was Wooden who said if we strive for perfection we will never make it but we will reach excellence. Its so great the Chris and Orrin have provided a way to stive for perfection and reach excellence with the LIFE business!
Great post Holger! I wad sharing this idea with someone today and I used this diagram above as a way to describe how and why we are creating a culture around the 8F’s It made me look like I wad incredibly intelligent, but little did this gentleman know I stole it from a couple geniuses (literally) like Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady.
Thanks for all your wisdom and insure Holger! You are truly making a difference!
Thanks for posting this Holger!! I actually used this model the other day when explaining to another professional what it is that Team LIFE is all about. It was by for the most effective way to help people understand the genius behind Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady for sure!
Gosh, what great hope we have for a better tomorrow thanks to the founders of LIFE! Onward to 1 Million People!
Today’s The Day!!!
Excellent post Holger! I loved how you can use this wheel to check where you are in your life through the 8 f’s. I love the term Circle of Life! Not only does it represent our wonderful business LIFE, but when I hear circle of life outside our business, I think ‘the way things work to make one whole’ as in everything is all connected together. In order to make a master painting, you need to have all the individual colors in the right spot to the right dynamic of color. Well in our Circle of LIFE, if you have all your 8 f’s at the right dynamic, they will all work together to have the LIFE you’ve always wanted! Thanks again Holger for your leadership! TTD!!!
Great stuff Holger! What a great visual to help us all identify where to focus on our development journey. Thanks for your leadership!
