Are You Solving Problems Or Out-Creating?
I have a mentor who sees the world totally different to almost anyone on the planet. His unique views on business make a lot of sense and he creates his businesses from an energy that is all about out-creating rather than problem-solving. Why? Because it works!“Problem-solver” is a label much touted as a good thing in most businesses. The funny thing is, if you are a problem-solver, then you are always going to be creating problems to solve. Oops!! How is that working for your business? Are you a little tired of fixing the problems in your business that you are creating? (Truly, if they are there, you are creating them somehow!) Is it time to create a greater possibility? One that could be fun for you?
A business truly focused on growth will create from an energy of out-creating, rather than problem-solving. Look at how Apple began – they weren’t solving a problem, they were creating something totally different. Richard Branson doesn’t solve problems; he out-creates the really average stuff that is on offer by his ‘competition’.
Two weeks ago I asked my mentor a few questions about people copying me (there seemed to be a trend on that!) and he showed me an energy of out-creation that was far beyond what I have been playing with. Out-creation is ALWAYS a more generative strategy than copying or competing (just in case you were wondering!!)
This week I came up with a new business model for one of my businesses that has the potential to make it into everything I have been asking it to be! On a much larger scale… with a lot less of my time… that no-one else is doing… and in a way that would be way more fun for me! How does it get better than that?
Here’s how it gets even better… I come up with another 10 business models that are game changers. It really is that simple. I became aware that the only ‘problem’ I had been creating in this business was not allowing it to be big enough… or amazing enough... or creative enough… or DIFFERENT enough! Cute… not bright. Changes are afoot!
So, you could ask your business this question… and be willing for inspiration to come from anywhere…
“What could I be or do today that would allow me to outcreate myself right away?”
And if you would like to know more about how to create a whole lot of this in your business, here are some choices:
- A free 30 minute business coaching session.
- Join us for the Business Beyond Limits telecall each month.

If you have been thinking too small, now is the time to outcreate everything you have ever dreamed of. Go Play!
