John Lee Dumas on Accomplishing Your #1 Goal

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Success stories — how an individual moves from Point A to Point B — are always a joy for me to hear, and an even bigger joy to share.

John Lee Dumas’ story is particularly inspiring because he’s also a friend, and he just…does things right!

If you regularly listen to podcasts or are involved with them yourself, you know the name, John Lee Dumas. He’s the creator and host of EOFire (Entrepreneurs On Fire) which generates over 1.2 million unique listens per month (yes, that’s per “month!”) inspiring entrepreneurs to take control of their lives and take their entrepreneurial leap.

John-Lee-DumasHe’s truly right at the top of his field. And, his keynote address at last year’s huge Podcast Movement 2015 touched lives in a magnificent way.

Along his journey, John has interviewed over 1200 successful entrepreneurs. He says he found one commonality in each and every one of them: “their ability to set and accomplish goals.” On the other hand, he says, “struggling entrepreneurs fail to do this very thing.”

John is a big believer in SMART Goals: (S)pecific, (M)easurable, (A)ttainable, (R)elevant, (T)ime-bound. Yes, those have been around for a long time. And, for good reason: when applied correctly, they work!

And, of course, while goals themselves are so very important, there is more involved in order for success to take place. Want to know how to accomplish your big goal?

Compliance, Commitment, Values, And…Dondi

“Compliance will never take you,
where commitment can go.”
~ Dondi Scumaci

As posted previously, I love that saying (what I call, a “Dondi-ism”) :-) by my great friend and mentor, Dondi Scumaci.

It reminds me that, as leaders and influencers, we always need to ask ourselves where our focus is and who it is on.

As Dale Carnegie taught us in his classic, How to Win Friends And Influence People, “Ultimately, people do things for THEIR reasons; not our reasons.”

So, in terms of the goal we are leading people to, is our focus on ourselves, or on them?…In other words, how does our goal align with THEIR goals; THEIR wants, THEIR needs, THEIR desires? And, with THEIR values?

When we question ourselves like this – intelligently, and with a genuine, authentic desire to build them – we’ve come a long way toward earning the commitment that Dondi wrote about.

Just my thoughts. What about yours?
