This week, our recommended reading is Who Not How, a great read about changing your mindset when confronting a challenge. Here the concept is to think about who can help you to achieve your goal, rather than how you can do so. Leveraging skill in your team and delegating to reach the desired outcome.
For a lot of entrepreneurs who find they are so busy with work, constantly moving from one task to the next, the hurdle most difficult to leap over is sharing that load. For many business owners, their great work ethic has got them where they are and it is hard to slow down and let others do the job for them. This is one of the areas Who Not How can help in.
The value of teamwork is key here and allowing yourself to step back and take the time to innovate on current processes will help you to achieve more for less or more effectively. By sourcing expertise for the how, you will be able to access greater results and you only need to worry about what you want to achieve and why.
On the website the following description of the book is given:
“This question at the heart of the Who Not How philosophy may seem simple, but don’t let the lack of complexity fool you. By mastering Who Not How, you will quickly learn how billionaires and successful entrepreneurs build incredible businesses and personal freedom, along with massive success.
Making this shift involves retraining your brain to stop limiting your potential based on what you can do on your own and instead focus on the infinite and endless connections between yourself and other people as well as the limitless transformation possible through those connections”.
