Get Stuff Out the Bottom of the Funnel


I was writing a note to Pat Ryan, my good friend, former boxing captain and now the youngest member of the For Impact Team.

Pat is heading up ForImpact/YES (Your Entrepreneurial Spirit), our Entrepreneur and Social Entrepreneur Initiative.

He packed up all of his stuff at the beginning of March and drove west. Currently working out of Jackson Hole and will be based out of Boulder at least for a few months while we’re working with the Unreasonable Institute.

I love working with young superstars. I have my whole career. Nick Fellers, Kerry Suddes, Pat Ryan, Mike Gemm are just the latest. Decided to share my thoughts to Pat with all of you.

I’m not sure this is ‘blog’ material, but I’ve had this ‘GET STUFF OUT THE BOTTOM OF THE FUNNEL‘ conversation with just about everyone with whom I’ve worked. (It’s probably because I’m worried that they will pick up one of my greatest faults/failures: not getting ‘stuff’ done and out.)

One of the greatest lessons of my life is what happens when you ACT! (Pat, Nick and Kerry will get this shorthand. Some of you as well.)

ACT NOW. SHIP IT. MESSAGE TO GARCIA. ENGAGE, THEN PLAN. JUST DO IT. And on and on and on and on.

The metaphor of ‘getting stuff out the bottom of the funnel’ is fairly simple.

We all have a lot of stuff at the ‘top of the funnel’… Ideas. Drafts. Action Lists. Etc.

The most successful people in life have figured out a way to get things out the bottom of the funnel!

The most valued associate, team member or partner in this day and age is someone who ACTS… someone who GETS STUFF DONE.

To all who read this: ‘Get Stuff Out the Bottom of the Funnel‘!!! You can help Change the World!!!
