Conquering Self-Doubt – Becoming the Buffalo
Drawing on a powerful metaphor, Hoots presents the contrast between the buffalo and the cow when facing a storm. The buffalo charges directly into the storm, experiencing it head-on, while the cow instinctively runs away. By adopting the buffalo mentality and confronting self-doubt courageously, we can navigate through challenges more swiftly and emerge stronger on the other side. The episode urges listeners to seek help, highlighting the acceptance of therapy and counseling within the construction industry. With a call to action, the host emphasizes the need to build a community that supports one another and shares insights, paving the way for innovation and progress.
The episode concludes with an invitation to join the Old Dawg Lean community, which offers a wealth of resources and knowledge to transform the construction industry. Hoots encourages listeners to grab a copy of the book, The Old Dawg Lean Thesaurus: Making Lean Simple!, to gain a deeper understanding of Lean Builder principles and become active participants in the community.
As the episode wraps up, there is an optimistic outlook for future episodes, as well as a shared determination to drive change and innovation within the industry. Tune in to gain empowering insights and practical strategies in conquering self-doubt and unlocking your full potential.
