The Power of Collective Genius

The Power of Collective Genius

Hi there! October is ending, and it was a crazy month for me. My mom visited, I broke my no-sugar rule several times, and both my daughter and I fell ill. Dealing with all these challenges made it hard to stick to my routine and stay disciplined. Today, I want to talk about how being accountable and working together with others can help us face tough situations like the ones I encountered this month but first…..

As you know, we are in the last days of October. Take a moment to think about what you wanted to achieve this month, what you’ve accomplished, and why things didn’t go as planned. Also evaluate if you tried to do too much by keeping yourself too busy. Goals are important and are kept in place to ensure that you aren’t either under delivering or overdelivering. It’s crucial not to overwhelm yourself or neglect to enjoy the present while working towards them.

The Power of Collective Genius

Understanding the value of group thinking and accountability has been a significant realization for me recently. Normally, my wife has been my primary support and accountability partner, but due to our new parental responsibilities, she’s understandably overwhelmed. She handles most of our daughter’s needs, that leaves her with little time to support my personal and professional aspirations.

This lack of support had noticeable effects on my routine and productivity. Various tasks, including our regular podcast recording, got delayed, if you noticed. For instance, this month when my mom visited and both my daughter and I fell sick, our daily schedule was disrupted. Despite these challenges, I don’t regret prioritizing my family. However, these situations made me realize the need for a solid support system beyond my immediate family.

I’ve come to appreciate the power of group support. Joining a data creators group on LinkedIn has been immensely helpful. This group comprises of talented individuals who work with data. We collaborate, share ideas, provide feedback, and learn from each other. Having this network has given me a platform to discuss my goals, get valuable input, and gain inspiration from the achievements of others in my field.

MrBeast, a well-known YouTuber, highlighted the significance of group thinking in his success story. He and his team consolidated their efforts and discussed ideas daily, analyzing what worked and what didn’t. This continuous feedback loop and mutual accountability played a pivotal role in his rapid rise to fame. His experience serves as a compelling example of how group thinking can fuel creativity and innovation.

In my view, the strength of a group lies in the diversity of perspectives within it. While shared interests are crucial, having individuals from different backgrounds or fields can offer unique viewpoints. These outsiders can challenge our ideas, encouraging us to think beyond our usual boundaries. This diversity can lead to innovative solutions and a broader understanding of our goals.

Round Table Conference

I am excited to introduce the Roundtable Conference at Vasl.

In this conference, you have the opportunity to join a group for the upcoming quarter. Together, we will determine your quarterly goals and form a cohesive group centered around shared themes. While I aim for a certain level of similarity to facilitate cohesive discussions, I also appreciate the value of diverse experiences. The goal is to create a supportive environment where learning from varied perspectives is encouraged.

We are opening eight seats for this group, and I will act as the facilitator. Throughout the journey, you will receive support from your peers, access to shared resources, and reach your chosen goals with the power of group think. If this opportunity resonates with you, you can sign up now by following the link. Please note that this commitment is non-binding initially. You will first fill out a form, and we will assess if we are a match. Once we think you are a match, you will be officially sent an invitation.

However, I must stress that there are limited seats available—only six to eight seats. So act quick to secure a spot in this cohort, as we wouldn’t want you to miss out on this opportunity. The upcoming cohort will commence at the beginning of the year, with the following cohort scheduled for March 2024.

I look forward to welcoming you to our Roundtable Conference and witnessing the positive impact it will have on your personal and professional growth.

Just a quick update – we didn’t manage to put out a new podcast episode, all thanks to the crazy month of October. We couldn’t get around to posting anything but, if you haven’t listened to our last episode, give it a listen! I’m already looking forward to our next one.

We also are on Spotify, Apple, Google, and wherever you listen!
