VIDEO! Well, on a bad day… You can still do these 3 things

“Have mercy baby, I am descending again…”
When I feel myself sinking, 
I look in the mirror and ask myself:
 
“Who can I DO SOMETHING FOR today?”

What can I do that is Quadrant 1…

High Gain and Low Pain

There are ALWAYS 3 LITTLE THINGS that are BIG THINGS that I can do for my friends…
“Daddy, the little things are the big things when the big thing is LOVE” – so said Devon (Birdie) at 5 years old.
 
Make a Recommendation, Make an Introduction, Pay a Compliment

I honestly didn’t know what to do…

I thought about cancelling.  I mean, that’s always an option– just giving up. Send out a note, that says:
“This week gutted me, I’m overwhelmed.”


What possible difference can one Speaker cancelling one Webcast make, right? I mean really, in the midst of ALL THIS…
 
I honestly didn’t know what to do.
So I did what most guys of a certain age do– especially most Italian guys of exactly my age– I lit up a cigar and I went for walk… and I prayed.  And when I was done praying, I just listened. 
 
And I heard the voices of the great friends I have interviewed over the last ten weeks… all experts that I love, who can make a difference in times of change and disruption.

VIDEO: Your Strategic Plan in 8 Questions…and Invite for Friday with C-Mack

Here is the video of last week’s conversation with one of the most effective people I’ve ever met– he offers you a free PDF of his book… which applies to you personally as well as to your business.. Fast Track Strategic Planning by John Dame, Vistage Chair
 
Push a Button and CONNECT WITH YOUR PURPOSE: Starting Different™ Dean Minuto interviews John Dame
Watch: CONNECT WITH YOUR PURPOSE
Starting Different™ Dean Minuto interviews John Dame
This coming Friday’s webcast asks you to consider this question: 
WHAT IF THERE WAS A BUTTON you could push to CONNECT with YOUR DREAM Clients and Career using LinkedIn?
 …you’d HIT THAT BUTTON, right?
 
The clients of your dreams, the career of your dreams, the connections of your dreams– I am thinking there is a 100% likelihood they are hidden somewhere in that icon on your screen called LinkedIn.

A Strategic Plan in 8 Questions?

WHAT IF YOU COULD CONNECT YOUR PURPOSE to a FAST TRACK STRATEGIC PLAN on a single page by asking JUST 8 QUESTIONS?
 
You could get 90% of the benefits of normal Strategic Planning in less than 10% of the time… AND begin executing on your Plan with your Team immediately.
John Dame coached one firm to do this on their path to change the lives of 50,000 people a day… another who grew from $40 million to $100 million in 5 years… and a third company that went from an installed service base of 300 corporate accounts to over 1,000 in a very short period of time.
 
REGISTER NOW SO YOU CAN JOIN US for a live Starting Different™

YES! See Dino’s friend Colt on ELLEN tomorrow!

Check your Local Listings…
Because my friend Colt  Clark (who I told you about in my email back on April  12 and copied below) and his kids will be on the ELLEN show tomorrow!

Just a few highlights of the Colt and the Kids last 50 days…
  • The Virtual Tip Jar I set up for Colt has $27,110 in it already (and thank you to those of you found Joy in Colt and the Quarantine Kids videos and gave something personally);
  • Colt has taught his kids a new song each day— recorded it that day, and put them up on FaceBook and YouTube;
  • Many of those videos have gone viral– one reaching 10 million views;
  • Personal notes have been sent to Colt and the Kids from Mickey Dolenz (of the Monkees) and Pete Townshend (of the Who);
  • And he has received notes from all over the World– from Bolivia to Vancouver, from Texas to the UK– from folks who wanted to thank Colt and his kids for bringing THEM and THEIR KIDS some joy during a time when they needed it;
  • One gentlemen referred to them as “an American National Treasure”.
 
 
Check out one of the songs that went viral here:

TODAY OF ALL DAYS: RISE.
“The little things are the big things, 
when the big thing is love.“–Dean Minuto 
 
FIND ONE PERSON YOU CAN HELP THIS WEEK.
That is the mustard seed. If you know the parable?
— Or as my Devon called it “the ketchup nut”– 
(but that’s a story for another day)
 
Someone needs to hear from you.
It is how we manifest LOVE in this world.
And it is how we are all going to get through this.

Maybe you can share this video with them?

I am fairly certain that this video will give you Joy– 
(… wait for little Bellamy and her harmonica solo at 02:53) Continue reading
