Interview with Brian Phillips of Out of the Bucket
Brian consults with contractors who are building their businesses. They are trying to get “out of the bucket,” i.e., stop doing the painting themselves and do more to market, develop systems, and improve their customer relationships. He wanted to know how thinking tactics could help contractors get “out of the bucket.”
The 40-minute interview can be downloaded here (for free) as an MP3 file.
Some takeaways from the interview:
- When a system of thinking tactics can help you—and why your natural skill as a thinker is often perfectly adequate for a given task
- A technique you already know that you can use to help you diagnose why you’re floundering and what to do about it
- The mental resource more scarce than time, and the #1 tactic that helps manage it
- The great benefit of learning from others, and when you’ll still need to figure things out for yourself
- How Brian used a particular thinking tactic, and got answers in 5 minutes that had eluded him for two months
- Why the way “out of the bucket” and out of your comfort zone is through your brain
Get a taste of how you can supplement the skills you already have with others that are a natural complement to them, and thereby create a reliable system you can call on to get more answers, faster, with less hair pulling.
