A board of directors of our life is more important than a board for your business.

A board of directors of our life is more important than a board for your business.

I can hear you saying “Who me? Board of directors? Take your Meds Teddy!”

No! I’m not hallucinating; Many of us have a board of directors of our life without being aware! Often this board is composed of:

Mum and dad.

A trusted friend.

Work colleagues.

A brother or sister.


Trusted business associate.

Schooldays chum.

All the above are resources that we informally tap into as needed. A group meeting is seldom organized and valuable synergy is lost (Plus there’s an attendant risk if we don’t take their advice; We may put some-ones nose out of joint).

THE MAGIC MUSCLE IS IN THE SYNERGY When Ford decides it’s time to vanquish Toyota; Bill Ford doesn’t sit down in a coffee shop with a yellow pad and singularly, develop a plan to revolutionize his plants; Instead, he calls a meeting of the best brains he can find to not only accomplish his objective but also, identify other priorities and opportunities by tapping the minds of the participants. (And he serves lunch).

ISN’T YOUR LIFE WORTHY OF THE SAME AND MORE? When an issue arises that I can’t resolve alone; It’s a no brainer to pick up the phone and call the best I can and ask for ideas outright. A few times a year I’ll bring in some “killer deserts” and serve $60/Pound Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and we sit around and ‘bang heads’. This isn’t an excuse for a booze up but rather an excuse to go to Teddy’s and be pampered. The cake and coffee is nice but the interaction, contacts and ideas that bubble up are just as enjoyable and invaluable.

Angelo owns a gigantic road building company and he brings in a chef to serve his now famous ribs.

BUT WAIT THERE”S MORE … He also brings in the most personable and breathtakingly beautiful models on the planet, to make sure his guest’s needs are suitably addressed. When Angelo’s office calls … No one trots out the lame “I’ll try to be there” We always go.

Invite a few progressive friends over with the objective of addressing your needs. Tell ’em about the cake and coffee only and curiosity will make sure they attend. Tell ’em that they are on the Board of Directors of your life after they arrive. You’ll be amazed at what bubbles up.

In an era where change comes at lightening speed. We need all the resources we can get our hands on. The idea of a personal board of directors starts to make sense.
