Happy September 1st, Builders’ Summit gang!

Welcome to the start of your first Mad Sprint. I hope you’ve taken the time to reflect on the goals you’re looking to achieve, and more importantly, the “why” that is driving you to your next success. I know we’re approaching a long holiday weekend, which may make this first week a short one for you. So, I would like to provide you with some thoughts to meditate on this weekend as you start your sprint. (Most of these tips can be explored further in The 12 Week Year by Brian Moran & Michael Lennington.) While The 12 Week Year is about achieving more in 90-day sprints, our first sprint will close out 2023.

  • Whether you are building a team or driving yourself to a new level of success, at your core must be a willingness to CHANGE.

  • CHANGE is the only path to achieving GREATER things.

  • Doing things DIFFERENTLY and doing DIFFERENT things = RESULTS.

  • To CREATE something you don’t have, you need to do something you aren’t currently doing!

  • GET COMFORTABLE WITH BEING UNCOMFORTABLE! If it was easy, you’d have already achieved your next success.


As you are mapping your next 90 to 120 days, remember 3 things:

1. The compound effect of small, but consistent, incremental changes is the needle mover. Strive to be even 1% better than yesterday.

2. You cannot pour into any relationship or endeavor unless you are first taking care of yourself.

3. If your greatest enemy is yourself, don’t be afraid to go to war. The mind is a powerful thing that will do what you tell it to do. What are you believing that is in your way?
