Jason is one of the most disciplined and focused leaders I have met in quite a while. I was delivering a keynote on leading innovation when we initially met last year. When Jason called this week, he said he had the PDF of my speech on his desktop. Each quarter he reads it to refocus himself on the fundamentals of leading innovation. He said, “I just run the routines.” He knows what works; he runs it, day in day out, month on month. It’s not about the next inspirational video, workshop, keynote speech, or new trend - that goes away. We know what works, but instead many of us seek the next magic bullet. You know what to eat to be right, you know what exercise to do to be on top of your game, you know to disconnect, you know to look people in the eye when speaking with them and to give them your full attention (especially your kids). We know these routines, it's a matter of running them daily. Yes, it’s boring, but that is what builds discipline. © GB
