A Note from Paul to the FastCap Team

Hi FastCap Team,

I know many of you think I’m crazy and that it is impossible for each one of you to do twice as much, or double your productivity, but I promise you it’s not only possible, it’s easy. The best part is it does not mean that you’re going to have to work harder, but you will actually work with more ease, enjoyment, and satisfaction in the way you do your job.

– First step is you must fully understand the amount of waste that surrounds each one of us.

– Second step is you must apply lean principles to everything you do & every breath you take.

– Third step is each one of you must set a big hairy audacious goal … a seemingly impossible goal like doubling your productivity by March 1, 2017….

Thanks
Paul

Paul Akers YouTube Channel

Paul Akers decided to separate out Paul Akers Channel from FastCap’s Channel. So if you want Paul Akers (e.g., 2 Second Lean, Lean Health, Lean Travel, Lean Hub, The American Innovator, Paul’s Crazy Adventures, etc.) go to the Paul Akers Channel. If you want information of FastCap and all our innovative products, go to the FastCap Channel.
