I wrote my first master plan when I was 15. It was a 25 year roadmap. The main reason was to explain how our actions fit into a larger picture, so that they would seem less random. It wasn't all that complicated and basically consisted of:

1.       Work with 10,000+ companies

2.       Generate billions for others

3.       Build a $250m+ company

And…

4.       Become the best business strategist in the world

The reason I had to start off with step 1 was two-fold. First, I didn’t know anything. Second, the kind of mastery I was in pursuit of far transcended the 52 weeks x 40 hours x 5 years idea (i.e. 10,000 hours to mastery). After helping more than 17,000 CEOs and companies, I felt like I had just qualified to start. Step 2 was to prove that I wasn’t trafficking in theories and concepts, like so many do. Step 3 was before I knew that Sir Richard Branson is the only one to build 8 billion dollar companies from scratch (Hint: this will show up in Master Plan, Part III). The first three steps were idiotic and Step 4 was idiocy squared.

I accomplished the first three, and the fourth one is highly debatable, although billionaires, world leaders, and CEOs the world over have endorsed us.

 

Time Travel

I wrote the second master plan 5 years ago with my new bride, Monique. It was a 10 year roadmap this time, and will be from here on out. At this point, it’s no secret that Monique and I are pinning our future prospects on our unique version of time travel — technology that overlays 10x strategic sets onto the real world, and saves leaders 20 years at a time.

In short, Master Plan, Part II is:

1.       Recast our expertise, which would necessarily be time consuming

2.       Use that money to perfect the product

3.       Use that money to find our essential partners

And…

4.       Bring time travel to the masses

For Step 1, Monique and I have busied ourselves accelerating more than 600 companies, primarily in Seattle, Washington, as we recast our expertise. We don’t sell consulting, we sell time. Every leader we’ve met ultimately yearns for more in less time. For clarity, we have chosen to spend the rest of our lives learning how best to save leaders 20 years at a time, at every level across all industries and organizational types. For Step 2, we have spent just about every waking moment perfecting the world’s most advanced management system, what we call The 12 Practices™, and delivering it in the real world. Our exponential results speak for themselves. Our research company, HyperspaceX, has created what we call The Hyperaccelerator™, a proprietary experience that takes leaders from one 10x growth inflection point to the next along what we call The Human Potential Continuum™ using 10x strategic sets based on The 12 Practices™. For Step 3, we launched a certification effort to adequately prepare essential partners for future expansion. We are on the verge of launching Step 4, the first phase of our global roll out plan. This will consume the next 5 years as we continue to do the first three steps.

We look forward to revealing Master Plan, Part III in five years. For now, we are simply focused on realizing the four steps in Master Plan, Part II. Our purpose is to save leaders 20 years at a time. Our vision is to bring time travel to the planet and beyond. Our mission—our high-level strategies as seen above—is to create and accelerate the world’s most advanced consultants, CEOs, companies, cities, and countries. It’s very real in our mind. Sustainable economies and the potential of humanity is at stake.
