THE GREAT COMPLAINT = CLEAR OUT THE NOISE MAKERS
STOP NOISE
We live in a culture of complaint.  Growling grumpy attitudes rumble and rage. It is the lazy man´s take on a call to action. They think that by pointing out a problem they are participating in the solution.  Yet, problem finding is lifeless without a passionate approach towards creating solutions.  In our books, we call that noise.

Peak performing teams must dial down the noise and amp up the pursuit of passion.

PASSIONATE + PERSISTENT PURSUITS
It is far better to build a small, tight knit and highly passionate team, then keep noise makers on board. The objective is to build into the endeavor one team member at a time an individual that gets the vision, brings to the table that passion level of energy and who thrives on persistence.

Pioneering in particular calls for that crucial mixture of passion plus persistence.  The persistence is the X factor that drives an individual or team well past its competitors.  When the noise makers drop out from frustration, the passionate and persistent team pushes past that point and seeks an alternative route to the peak.

They tackle it until they have exhausted all their possibilities.  And when they do find the solution, create the value and reach the peak, they savor it and then move onto the next big challenge.  They keep that passion at their core.
