Do you have a consistent performance standard you never waiver from in your business? Do you have “fanatic discipline”? From the book: Great by Choice, Jim Collins talks about the best companies that make 10X more than their competitors. What sets these companies apart? Having “fanatic discipline”. What does this mean? This means they have incredible consistency with values, goals, performance standards, and methods. They are utterly relentless, monomaniacal, unbending in their focus on their quests, and incredibly consistent no matter what the conditions. Fanatic discipline means having a consistent recipe for success that you stick to no matter what. Collins talks about the “SMaC” Recipe: SMaC is a set of Specific, Methodical and Consistent rules you follow and make decisions by. Are you are fanatically disciplined with in your company? If so, you are one of the few, congratulations! If not, what performance standards do you need to improve, or what core values do you need to define and stick to in order to get the consistency and discipline you need?
