About Who Not How (from Amazon):
Have you ever had a new idea or a goal that excites you… but not enough time to execute it? What about a goal you really want to accomplish…but can’t because instead of taking action, you procrastinate? Do you feel like the only way things are going to get done is if you do them? But what if it wasn’t that way? What if you had a team of people around you that helped you accomplish your goals (while you helped them accomplish theirs)?
When we want something done, we’ve been trained to ask ourselves: “How can I do this?” Well, there is a better question to ask. One that unlocks a whole new world of ease and accomplishment. Expert coach Dan Sullivan knows the question we should ask instead: “Who can do this for me?”
This may seem simple. And it is. But don’t let the lack of complexity fool you. By mastering this question, you will quickly learn how billionaires and successful entrepreneurs like Dan build incredible businesses and personal freedom.
This book will teach you how to make this essential paradigm-shift so you can:
* Build a successful business effectively while not killing yourself
* Immediately free-up 1,000+ hours of work that you shouldn’t be doing anyway
* Bypass the typical scarcity and decline of aging and other societal norms
* Increase your vision in all areas of life and build teams of WHOs to support you in that vision
* Never be limited in your goals and ambitions again
* Expand your abundance of wealth, innovation, relationships, and joy
* Build a life where everything you do is your choice–how you spend your time, how much money you make, the quality of your relationships, and the type of work you do
Making this shift involves retraining your brain to stop limiting your potential based on what you solely can do and instead focus on the nearly infinite and endless connections between yourself and other people as well as the limitless transformation possible through those connections.
My Video Book Review:
I’m Kelly Schuknecht, and this is my video book review. Today we’re looking at Who Not How by Dan Sullivan with Dr. Benjamin Hardy.
Although this book is intended more for entrepreneurs and business owners, it’s probably relevant for most people. The other day, one of the members of my international reading group was talking about how crazy busy he is at work—how coworkers often reached out to him and he wants to help them, but it just takes up so much of his time. He’s not the owner of the business, but he’s deeply committed to the work that he does and probably struggles with boundaries. Also, he probably thinks he’s the only one who can do the work that he does, and he doesn’t feel empowered to delegate work to other people.
All of that said the conversation made me think about how often I hear this from people: I’m swamped at work. I have so much to do. I’m working 12 to 15 hours a day.
If you find yourself saying these things, you may need a who to help you with your how. Dr.. Benjamin Hardy, who’s Dan Sullivan “who” for the writing of this book, does an excellent job of telling stories throughout the book that illustrate the point that seeking who’s in our life is imperative if we want to grow. Even if you don’t own a business and you want to grow personally, you need to be able to spend your time on the things that really matter.
In chapter two, the authors provide a worksheet or an impact filter that is to be used for thinking through any goal or project you’re working on, honing in on the vision, and determining who, who can help you.
I recommend this book if you’re a business owner, entrepreneur, manager, or if you just want to work on freeing up time in your life by delegating more and building relationships.
A couple of quotes I want to share. One is: “you are rewarded in life by the results you produce, not the effort and time you put in.” And the other one, my favorite: “If you have enough money to solve a problem, you don’t have a problem.”
