Welcome to chapter two of CFF university. The graphic you’re seeing on the screen as a question.
Is this you? Are you super woman. Every decision has to go through you. You’re the best in the company. You make all the right decisions. And or are you the guy on the right hand side where you’re just on the treadmill, man. You’re just everyday is like, can I keep up? Can I keep up? Can I keep up? Can I keep up? Can I keep up? Are you caught in the nightmare that so many business owners are in America? It’s this constant chasing of their tail?
There’s A Better Way To Run Your Business
Well, in either a picture, we encourage you to be neither of them. We don’t want, I want you to be Superman or superwoman, and we don’t want you to be on the treadmill, chasing your tail every day. We’re here to tell you there is a better way to run your business. But just like in the last chapter, we talked about personality testing to really understand what is the individual’s DNA and why they do well. They do this chapter. We get a little bit deeper and you, as the leader, the owner, the head, you have to take a test and we call it the rhythm or chaos test.
Rhythm & Chaos Test
And it’s on the screen right now. And you, if you want to win the game of business, you need to take a few minutes and take this test. So I want you to pause the video right now and answer the questions.
The 10 questions that are on this test. 10, if you ant, if you label your answer a number 10, it means you do this all the time. And if you answer it a one, it means you never do this. And at the end, you’re going to total up your score and you’re going to hit play. And I’m going to come back to you and tell you what it means.
Results Are In
Welcome back. I hope you took your test, your rhythm or chaos test. And now let me give you the results that we have seen from the hundreds of people that we’ve given this test to most people score a 39 most leaders in companies managing businesses score a 39. If you graded that on an a, B, C, D, or F, it would be an F.
Move Your Score Higher
I first took the test, I scored a 37 and I thought I was doing a good job leading the company, but the tests showed me that I can do better in these areas. And so your goal after taking the rhythm or chaos test is to do everything in your power to move your score from a low score to a higher score. Now, I can tell you, as I’ve mentioned to you before, as my business partner, Judge Graham and I, and burn the ships have done, uh, seven bootcamps and hundreds of people come through the bootcamps.
No one has ever scored a hundred. We have had some people score 90 after they’ve come to the bootcamp a few times, but the average score is below 40. And so don’t beat yourself up over it. Just take the realistic approach of where you are and the decision that you want to get better and be a better leader for your company and for your employees and for your clients and for your vendors.
Use The Questions To Change Your Behavior – Recap
Begin to work on changing your behavior in the 10 questions to increase your score. You might want to take this score, this test every couple months to see if your score improves. The goal is to get your score into the eighties. When we see someone, a leader of an organization score in the eighties, they’re making money, the company’s growing, the culture’s intact. People are happy. They know what’s going on. It’s a great business and they’re no longer Superman or superwoman or that guy on the treadmill just chasing his tail every day.
Remember CFF university exists to help you run a better business and give you some of the strategies that most of us never had. We didn’t go to school to run a trucking company or a finance company, or a towing company or construction company or a delivery company. We just Did it and we willed It to grow. And now we have to look at ourselves as owners and leaders and managers of people and of organizations. And we have the responsibility to be the best at that, that we can.
That’s chapter Two of CFF university, take the rhythm or chaos test score yourself, honestly, and let’s do everything we can over the next couple months to increase our score, to become a better leader.
Let’s move on to chapter three.
