Episode 120: Break the Rules If There is a Compelling Reason To Do So | Jay Blasi

*Jay Blasi was on the Robert Trent Jones II, RTJII design team at Chambers Bay Golf Course.

During this episode, Jay Blasi shares his experience working on the design team at Chambers Bay Golf Course, the home of the 2015 U.S. Open.  One piece of advice Jay shares about golf course design is to break the rules if there is a compelling reason to do so.

Jay Blasi Break the Rules

Jay Blasi

Jay Blasi spent his initial years at RTJ II assisting the design team on dozens of projects around the world. His first opportunity to serve as one of the lead architects on a project team came at Chambers Bay, a true links layout on the shores of Puget Sound, in University Place, Washington. Blasi fell in love with the property on his first site visit, and spent the majority of his time on the project from 2004 to 2007.

Chamber’s Bay

Following its debut in June of 2007, Chambers Bay was named by GOLF Magazine, Golfweek, Travel + Leisure Golf, and Golf Inc. as the number one golf course to open that year. In February of 2008, the USGA awarded Chambers Bay the 2010 U.S. Amateur Championship and the 2015 U.S Open Championship, making it the first course built since the 1960s to receive the latter honor. The announcement also made the RTJ II team the only living architects to have designed a U.S. Open course.

Jay says he deals with others in a variety of different ways, he draws plans, communicates and works with others on developing a game plan to create a golf course.

Success Quotes:

  • “The number 1 rule is break the rules if there’s a compelling reason.”
  • “As golf architects we’re artists tasked to create this landscape painting.”
  • “Two people can look at the same thing and see something different.”
  • “Know your audience.”
  • “If the golfer uses every club in their bag, that’s a success.”
  • “Ask the golfer to think, rather than just execute.”

Episode 119: King of Your Mental Domain | Chris Burns

Chris Burns is a golfer, golf coach, the host of the Golf More Swing Less Podcast, owner of the Golf More Swing Less website, and author of King of the Mental Swing.  In Episode 109 Chris Burns will teach you how you can use the mental golf swing to help you become the king of your mental domain.

Chris Burns The King of Your Mental Domain

Chris Burns

Golf is 90% mental and 10% physical.  When you’re the king of your mental domain, you’re the king of your mental domain.

An athletic position is really critical because your setup predetermines your golf swing.  The athletic position means Chin up, not chin down. Shoulders back, chest out. A little bit of bend in your waist.  A light knee bend.

One of the key components of the mental golf swing is having good posture and body language.

The keys to success of becoming the King of Your Mental Domain are:

  • Believe
  • Choose
  • Commitment
  • Practice the Art of Happiness and Inspiration
  • Understand
  • Execute
  • Share

Success Quotes:

  • There are very few people who are king of their mental domain.
  • Believe that you can get better.
  • Practice the art of happiness and inspiration.

Episode 116: The NEW Defining Success Podcast

After my 100th interview on the Defining Success Podcast, I’ve decided to change the format of the show.  Instead of focusing on the individual and how they’ve managed to become successful, I’ll be focusing on a particular skill, trait or ability that has helped that person to become successful.

I’m making the change to the podcast, because, to me, it feels like a logical next step to extend the podcast and make it more meaningful to our listeners.  It has been amazing getting to know so many amazing individuals and being able to talk with them about their success.

Now, I think it’s a great time to shift from learning about an individuals rise to success to learning something you can use to help make you successful.  The NEW Defining Success Podcast will teach you a new skill, trait and/or ability to help you become more successful in the things that you do.

My first interview for the NEW Defining Success Podcast is with Michael Kawula in Episode 117 who is going to teach you how to use Help a Reporter Out, also known as HARO, to be used as a source for articles in institutions like Fox, the Huffington Post, and CNN.

In my entrepreneurial journey, I’ve decided that moving in this direction is great for two reasons:

  1. I will be able to learn a new skill, trait, or ability which I can apply to make myself better
  2. You will learn how to implement something every time you listen to the episode of the Defining Success Podcast

Mostly, I want to create a podcast designed for YOU, because, I think YOU are like me.

If you love learning, if you like making yourself better, and if you like taking action on the things that you learn then the NEW Defining Success Podcast will be great for you . . . And if it’s not, I hope you’ll let me know so I can change it.

Thank you for sticking with me for the first 115 episodes and 100 interviews.  I hope you’ll be around for the next 100.

Episode 115: Hit the Ball as Hard as You Can | Larry Welborn

One of the first guests I had on my podcast was David Kramer, the oldest son of Jack Kramer, one of the world’s most famous tennis players of all time.

One of the questions I was most excited to ask David was what advice did his father give him and he didn’t have a very clear answer.  I remember talking with my Dad after the interview telling him that I was a little bit disappointed about not getting a little nugget or a pearl of wisdom from the late Jack Kramer.

My Dad told me it wasn’t as easy as I thought it should be and then he asked me what I would say if somebody asked me, and I wasn’t sure what I would say.

In anticipation of this interview I was eager to see what my dad would when I asked him what piece of advice he would give to his children and here’s what he said:

“Hit the ball as hard as you can.”

Larry Welborn recently retired after a 43-year career as the legal affairs reporter for the Orange County Register, in which he covered many high-profile cases but showed a high level of enthusiasm and dedication in every story he covered.

Hit the Ball as Hard as You Can Larry Welborn Zeb Welborn

Larry & Zeb Welborn

Since 1981, Welborn has also been the chairman and president of CSPA, which is preparing for its 64th-annual high school journalism workshop on the campus of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.

Larry Welborn knew hew wanted to become a journalist at an early age.  At the time, Larry liked two things, he liked baseball and he liked to read.  A book he read as a child, The Freshman Backstop, encouraged him to combine his two loves and become a journalist who wrote about baseball.

In High School he enrolled in journalism classes and he began to write.  A mentor of his, Ralph Alexander took him under his wing and encouraged Larry to pursue his career in journalism and helped him along the way.

Some of Larry’s most famous trial cases were:

  • the Manson Murder Trial
  • the Rodney James Alcala Serial Murder Trials
  • the Nick Adenhart DUI Trial
  • the 2 Fullerton Police Officer’s Beating of a Young Man
Larry, Annie, and Zeb Welborn Hit the Ball as Hard as You Can

Larry, Annie, and Zeb Welborn

Success Quotes:

  • The last line of the story is the one that readers remember.
  • Hit the ball as hard as you can.
  • Success is having a family who loves you, friends who care about you, colleagues who respect you, acquaintances who know you and the knowledge you lived your life caring about other people.  That you loved well, were loved, took care of your family, gave back to society and had fun.
  • Success on a daily basis is being prepared to do the best you can and doing it the right way with consideration to others.

Awards:

Larry Welborn has received numerous awards during his career, but two of the most memorable awards for him was the Sky Dunlap Award by the Orange County Press Club, and recently the California Attorney’s for Criminal Justice honored him with the Journalism Integrity Award.

Thank you for everything Dad.

Episode 114: Follow Through on Your Promises | Jaime De La Torre

Jaime De La Torre Owner of DLT Growers and Monte Vista Farms - Follow Through On Your Promises

Jaime De La Torre

In Episode 114, our 99th interview on the Defining Success Podcast, Jaime De La Torre shares his thoughts on business, success and how important it is to follow through on your promises.  Jaime owns two successful nurseries in Southern California and knows what it takes to build a successful business.

Jaime De La Torre is the owner of DLT Growers founded in 1987 and Monte Vista Farms. After having worked 8 years for different groundcover nurseries, he decided to try his luck and start his own groundcover nursery. It soon became a family business, as many of Jimmy’s family members joined the company. Even though they started off small, they slowly grew and became one of the largest groundcover businesses in southern California.

Jaime De La Torre grew up in Guadalajara at 9 years old.  He went to the local farmers market and help build his uncles business.  Before 9 years old he had an entrepreneurial spirit by selling gum on the street and by helping carry groceries from their local grocery store.

He moved to the United States around the 8th grade and dropped out of school.  He started working at a nursery at 16 years old and quickly moved his way up the ranks to a sales person at 17 years old.

He used to go and sell on Mondays and Tuesdays and he did so well that he generated $500,000 in sales for one of the nurseries he worked for.  He started saving money and eventually started his own business with his Father and his Uncle, DLT Growers.

When he started the business, it was hard to buy materials because many of his competitors didn’t want to sell to him, but he was excellent at selling and growing his products.

He now services clients all over Southern California including around 140 Home Depot stores.

His business grew and he and his brother started a new business venture, Monte Vista Farms.

Quotes:

  • “Ever since I was a little kid I always thought of doing something that I can do (well).”
  • “I would always be friends with everybody.”

Episode 112: The Entrepreneurial Work Mode | Pamela Slim

Pamela Slim, the Entrepreneurial Work Mode,

Pamela Slim

Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone according to Pamela Slim.  Entrepreneurs need to be competent in the entrepreneurial work mode.  In Episode 112, Pamela Slim and I will discuss the entrepreneurial work mode and how to become successful as an entrepreneur.

Pamela Slim is an award-winning author, speaker and leader in the new world of work. She spent the first 10 years of her solo practice as a consultant to large corporations such as Hewlett-Packard, Charles Schwab and Cisco Systems, where she worked with thousands of employees, managers and executives. In 2005, she started the Escape from Cubicle Nation blog, which is now one of the top career and business sites on the web. She has coached thousands of budding entrepreneurs, in businesses ranging from martial art studios to software start ups.

According to Pamela, not everyone can be an entrepreneur.  There are so many components that have to work together to create a great business.

A lot of people paint the picture that entrepreneurship is wonderful and fantastic, but really it’s hard work.  In reality, it’s just a work mode.

Set up business licenses, a bank account, talk to an accountant and make sure you’re setting up a viable business.

Who is your market?  What is the different ways you can connect with them?

Tom Dowd Time Management Tips and Tactics

Tom Dowd

Time management is a disciplined mindset to be able to live in the moment while working toward the future. It is all mental—it’s an attitude.  Having control in your life is about commitment, routines, flexibility, adjustments, and planning.  We create our own self-limitations.  We say we’ll do tomorrow what we really want to do today.  Eliminate what’s holding you back.  “Time Management Manifesto” offers specific actions that will teach subscribers the following themes:

  • Manage your time, don’t let it manage you
  • Time management is required of all levels, in all positions
  •  The benefits of managing professional time effectively spill into your personal space

Throughout the interview, Tom gives some great advice on ways to manage your time.

One idea is to block off a period of time at the end of each work day to plan out your next day.  The same thing is to plan out your month a week or two before the beginning of the next month.

Turn off the notifications on your computer to avoid distractions.

Time Management Manifesto Tips and Tactics

  • “When you can, avoid multi-tasking.”

Episode 106: Capitalizing on Great Ideas | David Frood from The Thinking Corporation

In Episode 106 of the Defining Success Podcast, David Frood discusses capitalizing on great ideas.  David is behind The Thinking Corporation which advocates creating a system whereby employees and others can bring ideas to corporations for the benefit of all involved.  Learn how you can start capitalizing on great ideas in your organization.

David Frood developed The Thinking Corporation corporate innovation program. He worked for sixteen years as a consultant to medium and large businesses, initially with an international sales consulting firm, then as a freelancer.

David Frood from The Thinking Corporation Capitalizing on Great Ideas

David Frood

His clients include organizations like Hewlett Packard, Qantas, Diageo, Reckitt Benckiser, Cerebos Foods, CommSec and Daikin Air-conditioning. He became a specialist in implementing new sales and marketing processes, changing management, and worker development.

His experience formed the basis for The Thinking Corporation book after observing many highly skilled and knowledgeable people who were frustrated by the boundaries and structure of their employer organizations. Employees would rarely tell their employers about ideas for new products, services or markets to improve existing processes.

It became clear to David, that there is a much better way to manage people and organizations through designing a company that is capable of harnessing the talent from within the ranks.

David Frood started out in accounting and eventually became a sales consultant.  In David’s experience, the biggest problem many corporation has is not talking and listening to employees enough.

Corporations will benefit from becoming a Thinking Corporation because they will increase their profits from the ideas of those connected with the corporation.  The individuals can benefit in a variety of different ways that they work out with their corporations when they sort out the program during the process. They will be capitalizing on great ideas.

Shout Outs:

  • Hewlett-Packard
  • Quantas
  • Diageo
  • Reckit Benckiser
  • Cerebos Foods
  • CommSec
  • Daikin Air-Conditioning

Success Quotes:

  • “Corporations need to recognize that they have genius within the ranks.”
  • “Become aware of the right environment.”
  • “Get to know the genius within the ranks.”
  • “Get the ideas from the genius within and the genius without.”
  • “Success is waking up every day and being happy with what you’re doing.”
