The David Nilssen Approach To Business – Episode 2 – Part 2
The legendary founder of Apple Computers, Steve Jobs, once said, “People think focus means saying yes to the things you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no that there are. To the hundred other good ideas that there are.” If you are a person that find yourself saying yes to too many things in life which causes you to be so busy and overwhelmed, then this episode is definitely for you. Business coach Clay Clark continues his series with the co-founder of Guidant Financial David Nilssen as they discuss David Nilssen’s approach to business. In this episode specifically, David and Clay begin by discussing the people and opportunities that David has to say no to as the co-founder of Guidant Financial. While David admits that saying no to some things can make him feel bad at times, he highlights how important it is for your business to not say yes to every single request that another person might have. While the temptation to say yes to something is very much there, David reminds us that if we say yes to everything we failed to meet the expectations of that obligation. What this means is that by saying yes to too many things, it will cause us to be busy and preoccupied with so many responsibilities. By being preoccupied with so many responsibilities, we will not be able to keep commitments and it will disappoint people who we have those commitments with. While it may seem tempting at first to say yes to anything that someone asks of you, think to yourself whether or not saying yes would make a false expectation.
