Dan Sullivan & Ben Hardy
“WhoNotHow” is Dan Sullivan’s single formula for achieving bigger goals through accelerated teamwork. In this podcast series, Dan and Ben Hardy, author of Willpower Doesn’t Work, discuss the fundamentals.
One of the obstacles that comes up when you have big goals is that getting from here to there requires capabilities you don’t currently have. This can be such a negative experience that some entrepreneurs choose to stop having big goals to avoid that obstacle altogether. But how you view your future self has a major effect on how you live your life, and there’s a better way to go about achieving that vision than taking it all on yourself. Find people who have the unique capabilities needed to achieve your goals, and share with them your emotional and intellectual engagement. Not only will you and your collaborators make easier progress than you would alone, there will be unexpected benefits along the way. Dan Sullivan and Ben Hardy are taking this “WhoNotHow” approach to create a major market book. In this episode, they’ll explain how the idea was born.
Collaborating with other entrepreneurs is vital to getting the biggest payoffs, but not everyone is a suitable collaborator. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Ben Hardy explain what’s needed for true collaboration and share their own examples.
Most entrepreneurs feel that they have to either do all of the work themselves, including the stuff they hate doing, or else go through the work of delegating unwanted activities to others who’ll resent them for it. But there’s another, better way to go about freeing yourself up to focus on doing only the activities you love and are good at. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Ben Hardy talk about bringing people into your world to do things they love and are skilled at and how that will both benefit your vision and make you a hero to others.
It can be scary to let others work toward your vision, but in this episode, Dan Sullivan and Ben Hardy explain how it will save you more than money.
The academic world teaches us to do everything ourselves, but in the marketplace, collaboration can be key to getting big things done. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Ben Hardy share the question you should be asking yourself every time you have a big new ambition.
