BTL buddies build each other. The building follows a specific pattern on purpose. Real buddies work on Core, OPUS, and PoP(playbook of Productive action) it like a banchee. BTL buddies are good Cops (Core centered, Opus focused, and committed to PA). Good.
Their job as BTL buddies is to get stronger within, clearer about their aim, and more disciplined in how they get there. Like good Cops, they get stuff done, make the world a bit better, and do it because it’s how they’ve decided to make a contribution in community. We could use a few more good Cops in your community. The enemy, however, of good community in the world of work is the abundance of pigs ( people invested in gossip). You see pigs are weak within, like to wallow in the mud just to wallow, and waste too much time speaking and listening, and spreading fertilizer that smells but does no good. Pigs spread stuff that steals energy from community.
We could use a few more BTL buddies in your corporate world. I’m certain we could benefits from a few Cops kicking their own and inspiring others with their clarity and charity. Don’t be a pig, friend. Become a virtuous, BTL buddy and focus on becoming a good Cop who gets stuff done. We don’t need another pig just spreading stuff that does no good.
What are you investing in today? Invest in becoming a good Cop, and make your BTL buddy become one too. You see, BTL buddies build self and build another. BTL buddies spread growth. Pigs spread stuff. It’s easy. Anybody can spread stuff that steals energy from community. Anybody can spread worthless stuff. Only the strong, the few, spread strength, and make contributions that build community. Be one of the few, friend. Be like a good Cop. Spread growth, friend. Good..
