Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 01/10/2022

Alan Weiss's Monday Morning Memo

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 01/10/2022

 

The unemployment rate is around four percent, which is almost at pre-pandemic levels, and most economists consider this full employment because those still unemployed are the chronically unemployed.

The stock market, in a bumpy but steady trajectory, is progressing upwards, having hit new records. Covid has moved from epidemic to pandemic to endemic, meaning that it’s now a part of society and needs to be lived with through preventive and contingent actions. It’s not going to be eradicated. In some cases, enlightened views are reducing isolation periods and “lockdowns” are ending in favor of sensible restrictions. But in others, there is stubbornness, such as teachers unions demanding remote learning, which we know doesn’t work and which leaves a generation of kids poorer for it. But the kids aren’t the teachers’ customers in the union’s view of the world. Education requires more innovation, not simply “safe” retreating.

Tesla (and I acknowledge Elon Musk is not one of my favorites) has proved highly innovative in terms of taking what chips it could find and rewriting its software to use them, instead of being captive to foreign interests and control, which other American auto makers are. As always, innovation is a mark of the best companies.

Mutatis mutandus, we are resilient and successful. Not everyone, of course, and not always. But what matters is to control our fate the best we can, not to give up, and to rely on solid information and knowledge, not on conspiracy theories, paranoia, or guilt. I think in the next two months we’ll see a continuing, steady decline in Covid hospitalizations and serious illness among the vaccinated. What we will continue to see will be analogous to the flu (endemic). The unvaccinated will take their chances and will continue to burden the health care systems.

There is every reason to believe that 2022 will be a terrific year if we act responsibly and innovatively. That will mean rewriting our own software for the human-computer. There is no “new normal,” there are only new realities.

 

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. —Stephen Hawking
All we have is the knowledge passed on to us by our elders, experiences we inculcate and hardly negate. But to bridge the generation gap, one needs to adapt to the new while retaining the goodness of the old. —Sonali Bendre
Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature’s inexorable imperative. —H. G. Wells

Six Figures to Seven (627): I haven’t run this in several years, and then only twice in the US and once in London, once in Sydney. It’s occurred to me that I now know additional and faster ways to reach seven figures, having helped hundreds of people to get there. And the pandemic experience has major implications. Million Dollar Consulting and “seven figures” are metaphors for achieving the lifestyle and true wealth (discretionary time) that you desire. This experience, which I may never repeat at this stage, will get you there. February 10-11, 2022 (two full days) Las Vegas, Nevada. Fee: $4,500. Register here: https://alanweiss.com/store/quick-pay/

Million Dollar Consulting® for the World: I’ve provided 14 modules with videos from me, from your colleagues globally, slides, and text. They include everything from launch to self-esteem, proposals to fees, closing business to creating a brand. No upsells! It’s only $115. What do you think about a 10,000:1 ROI? https://milliondollarconsultingcourse.com

Hosting Revenue-Generating Meetings: Too many seemingly good meetings with no business resulting? You can’t pay the mortgage with meetings held. Learn how to transition business meetings, speeches, Zoom calls, and even networking into eventual business. You need to “run through the tape,” right? https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/hosting-revenue/ This is LIVE in Boston! Join me!

Sentient Strategy: My next certification program is via Zoom at 2 pm US Eastern time on January 17-18. Over 60 people certified in six countries and a dozen sales have already ensued. EVERY business needs a new post-pandemic strategy, and this process can be applied virtually or in person in as little as a day. I recommend a minimum $35,000 fee.

The Role Play Workshop: Join me in Dallas on April 29 in an intimate setting for a day of role play where we exchange roles and practice from “both sides.” We’ll deal with sales meetings, referral requests, networking discussions, expansion business, advisory offers, overdue payments, rejecting scope creep, and whatever else is on your mind. We’ll also be adjusting language to reflect today’s new realities in terms of technology, remote meetings, social mores, economics, strategy, and much more. For example, do you realize there’s a vast difference between “budget” (always strained) and “money” (always available)? https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/role-play-workshop/

The Power Community Experience: I’m launching a new variation of coaching and growth for people who seek an intense, shorter-term opportunity to grow dramatically. It will combine group and personal advisory help, and will mix several opportunities for self-development. Join me for 60 days on specific growth topics and personal coaching in a small group, including Zoom calls, livestream broadcasts, free participation in one of my workshops, and much more. Beginning mid-March, discount for joining this month: https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/power-community-experience/

Beyond Thought Leadership: Six “stars” from my community from five countries will be interviewed by me in this live, 2.5 day experience. I’ll be introducing new IP, case studies, and role-plays. And the final interview will be with me. This is one-time only, it was difficult to organize. Limited participation, in Miami in November, register now, no one else can offer this experience for your growth. https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/beyond-thought-leadership/
