The Year of Extraordinary
…or how my commitment to building a world-class team led to me hiring a millionaire as my personal assistant
Henry Ford once said:
“I am not the smartest, but I surround myself with competent people.”
My imagination was sparked when I read the words of Daniel Levitin, a neuroscientist, in The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload…
You see, he wrote that
“highly successful persons [from rock stars to Fortune 500 CEOs] tend to have remarkable organizational systems… They have many of the daily distractions of life handled for them [so they can] devote all of their attention to whatever is immediately before them. They seem to live completely in the moment.”
And that sounded simply incredible.
But I’m not a rock star or even a Fortune 500 CEO and although I’ve been practicing surrounding myself by extraordinary people for a while now, what I wanted to create next seemed truly outrageous.
You see, I want an Epic Personal Assistant. Someone who allows me to live like a ‘Rock Star’. And I speak as a husband and a dad in the thick of parenting a one year old and a three year old!
Intuitively I got that it won’t be by waiting until—hopefully, one far off day—when I eventually arrive at the highest levels of success that I’ll finally hire an epic PA. It is by hiring one now that I’ll take my life and my business to epic levels.
So I want to share with you some insights from my journey.
