Articles & Book Reviews About The Business Owner’s Inner Game

Welcome To Pillar 2 on The Business Owner’s Inner Game

As I worked with more business owners, I came to appreciate the importance of the “inner game” in determining how successful a business owner and business would be.

What is the Inner Game?

It’s how the business owner him-or-herself performs.

It covers a wide range of topics including:

  • Having a clear vision
  • Managing your work-life balance successfully
  • Setting goals and priorities in your business
  • Managing time effectively
  • Thinking clearly and logically when required, thinking creatively when needed.
  • Making good decisions
  • Having the ability to focus on the important over the trivial

As you can see, this isn’t about accounting or sales and marketing or managing staff. It’s all about the business owner getting the maximum performance out of the most important resource the small business has – himself or herself.

The biggest aha I got from reading Michael Gerber’s book The E-Myth Revisited was the idea that a business owner has the unique ability to live life intentionally by having such direct control over both work life and personal life.

The Profit Club Material

These posts also include material from my defunct membership site called Your Profit Club, now re-christened Paul Simister’s Profit Club. This was built around the Eight Pillars of Business Prosperity.

If you want to follow along, start with Pillar 2 The Inner Game.

I have recently enrolled in Simpleology 5.9 as an Elite member and I thought I’d share my experience and thoughts.

Background to my experience with Simpleology

Back in the days before my health problems overwhelmed me, I used to be a big fan of Mark Joyner (the founder), Simpleology (the self management system) and the training products, mainly various kinds of marketing and persuasion.

I was also quite a good affiliate, since I was happy to recommend the products I liked. sadly the affiliate system changed at around the time I was at my weakest and I lost touch with what Mark was doing. [continue reading…]

In my review of the book

The Logical Thinking Process: An Executive Summary by H William Dettmer

posted on Amazon.co.uk, I gave it 4 Stars. This means that it is Good and Well Worth Reading.

Notice “An Executive Summary” in the title. This is very much an introduction to a topic brilliantly covered by the author’s much more extensive book, also called The Logical Thinking Process.

At the bottom of the page is a video by the author, explaining the differences between his process and that originally developed by Eli Goldratt.

Here is my book review.

Very useful overview of Goldratt’s thinking processes

The author has written an excellent book explaining how to use the Theory of Constraints Thinking Processes. However, if you learn a little, you can easily get scared off by the strange terminology in the original thinking like Evaporating Clouds and Current Reality Trees. [continue reading…]
