Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 01/31/2022

Alan Weiss's Monday Morning Memo

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 01/31/2022


Generosity is the readiness and willingness to give more than is expected, and consistently showing kindness toward others. In A Line Out for A Walk, the writer Joseph Epstein observed, “The true measure of generosity is not how much one gives but how much, after giving, one has left over.” Generosity doesn’t require a sigil, only an attitude.

I formerly (and I stress “formerly”) coached someone who had been almost penniless, and through his efforts and acceptance of advice became very successful financially. But his lack of generosity never changed, and when I confronted him about this his reply was, “I’m very generous with my family!” His poverty mentality was indelibly etched in his soul.

Generosity, to me, isn’t solely about money. It’s about non-financial support, presence, advice and good counsel, forgiveness, and tolerance. Most generosity “costs” us nothing at all. But it requires strong self-worth and not the feeling that you “lose” something when you provide it for others. Stopping to allow someone to turn in front of you is a generous act. Forgiving someone who doesn’t is also a generous act.

But beyond “act” generosity is a mindset. Some of us trip over it and realize we should provide it. For others, it’s a default behavior. But you can’t do it because it brings the spotlight on you and you desire the accolades.

“He has right to meddle who has a heart to help.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)


Every minute of every hour of every day you are making the world, just as you are making yourself, and you might as well do it with generosity and kindness and style. —Rebecca Solnit

In a time of domestic crisis, men of goodwill and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics. —John F. Kennedy

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: alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/six-figures-to-seven/ We have two seats left!

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? milliondollarconsultingcourse.com

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)? 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 weekly Zoom calls, monthly livestream broadcasts, free participation in one of my workshops, and much more. Beginning mid-March, discount for joining this month: 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. alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/beyond-thought-leadership/

Ferocious Time Management: I’m tired of wasting my time hearing people tell me they have no time!!In a rare appearance in San Diego, I’m going to help you ruthlessly organize yourself so that you have time to close business, deliver a remote speech, create a book outline, and learn to tame wild beasts before lunch. Seriously, time is “elastic,” and you can stretch it to accommodate what you need to accomplish. Moreover, most people work too hard to achieve too little. Discretionary time is wealth, not money, but we’re prone to work so hard chasing money that we erode our wealth. Create greater output in a 20-hour week! alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/ferocious-time-management/
