Want to feel rich instantly? Think of the peaks of the past!

Think about all the situations where someone or something created massive value for you – and even better where you created massive value for each other.

Those moments are the very peak of life. And those are moments are you want to remember.

Those are the momenters which will make you feel rich instantly!

Those are the moments that will make you feel greatful.

These peaks of the past are also what you can replicate for future value creation, for  peaks of the future.

Let us make it more concrete.

Say, you are to meet with an old friend that you haven’t see for a while.

How would you go about making sure that you have a good time, that you will satisfy each others needs, that you will have a peak experience?

Thinking about a past peak will be helpful in two ways. It will most likely remind you of how, and by that I mean by which manner, viehcle and stategy, you have previously been able to satisfy each others needs. And at the same time it will put you in a great state where you are more likely to satisfy each others needs, and create a new peak of life.

Hope this will help you. Enjoy!

Did the winning performance in the Eurovision create value? Of course! But how?

Surely, the pink colours, the look of Netta and the dancers provided variety and fun. Yet, this alone would not have secured the victory in a show generally known for this triat exactly.

More basically, but at least as important, the power and energy of Netta made us feel confident and comfortable around the performance. She can sing.

What about significance? Did you feel more significant looking at Netta? In terms of personal connection, Netta and the performance did not offer much – for example, Netta’s eyes were constantly rolling in a new direction effectively prohibiting any feeling of personal connection with her.

So what drove it home? The text, the message, the sense of joining this willful performance in a rebellion aginst the stupid boy!!! If you woted for Netta, I bet you felt the text did tell a story, you learned or were reminded of something you agreed with, and you may even have felt that you contributed to a positive Me Too like message or movement.

Do you agree?

Personal: Does it create value to eat a chocolate?

pexels-photo-209331.jpegEating a chocolate satisfies a personal need for some people. It creates value for those people. Don’t believe me? Then answer, why do the these people want to pay for it if having and eating the chocolate had no value?

But how much value is created? What is the quality of the need being satisfied? Are there better ways, more valuable ways to satisfy the same need? Are there less valuable ways to satisfy the same need?

Follow this blog where we will by great examples one step at a time dig into what personal and business value is, what needs are, and how to create value and how to create maximum value. I encourage you to share any examples of great value creation and destruction so that we may all learn from these.

Life and business models – the supreme being, the peak of life: How to create value?

gold-ingots-golden-treasure-47047.jpegThe answer is by satisfying needs – personal needs and business needs. The needs you satisfy determine the value you create.

Who’s needs do you satisfy? Your own? Others? What type of needs do you satisfy? How do you satisfy these needs?

Value = satisfaction of personal needs + satisfaction of business needs

Following Tony Robbins’ six human needs theory, the fundamental personal needs are certainty, variety, significance, connection, growth and contribution.

The fundamental business needs relate to income, costs, risk and, if you, like my beautiful wife who is committed to changing the world into a more sustainable model, are into that, corporate (social) responsibility.

The perfect value creation may therefore be defined as the simultaneous creation of:

  1. More certainty
  2. More variety
  3. More significance
  4. More connection
  5. More growth
  6. More (personal) contribution
  7. Higher income
  8. Less cost
  9. Reduced risk
  10. More (corporate) responsibility

How many of these needs do your Iphone satisfy? Have you ever changed job position and experienced the satisfaction of all these 10 needs; a perfect value creation?

perfect or complete value destruction may conversely be defined as the simultaneous result in:

  1. Less certainty
  2. Less variety
  3. Less significance
  4. Less connection
  5. Less growth
  6. Less (personal) contribution
  7. Lower income
  8. Higher cost
  9. Increased risk
  10. Less (corporate) responsibility

Would being put in jail result in a complete value destruction for you? For many it would which is why it is generally a severe punishment.

A business model is the model a business applies to drive income and thereby cost, risk and corporate responsibility. Accordingly, the business model determines the creation of business value.

A life style or model is likewise the model a person applies to drive certainty, variety, significance, connection, growth and (personal) contribution. Accordingly, the life model determines the creation of personal value.

Business models need to be adjusted at an increasing phase but only few realise that life models need to change too. We must ensure continuous and never-ending improvement (kaizen) to both our business and life models.

The supreme being, the peak of life, is when you master perfect value creation for yourself AND others at the same time by the same action.
