Ford vs Ferrari
I saw the movie, Ford vs Ferrari, this past weekend. And the business side of my brain kept seeing how the movie was about so much more than race cars. Of course the goal to win races fueled their passion to keep improving their cars. But there were plenty of other lesser visible side effects.
Some Ford vs Ferrari business lessons…
First, the guys who own the car company. They want to build and deliver the top performance car possible. And they have a strong desire to be the best at doing that. After all, there are jobs and lives at stake. Well, that’s like you and your business. Of course, you certainly want (and need) to be the best at your craft for the sake of your business. But it’s also about being the best you can be at running a business. And there’s no need to sacrifice one for the other. Because the lives of you and your family are at stake.
Next, the car needs designers, builders, and pit crew who can (and who WANT to) deliver a super dependable, quality vehicle. That means a lot of preparation goes on behind the scenes. Long before the car ever hits the pavement. They all share a vision of what that is and how it looks. On paper. Then in the shop. And finally in production.
And your business is like that, too. Lots of behind-the-scenes prep work. The thankless things that have to get done in order to build a super dependable, quality business. But you’re worth it. Right? And your family’s worth it. So, never lose sight of your vision your mission, and your values. They should drive you to set up a system you can use to make it happen. A system that helps you automate and delegate so you can be the force you need to be.
Every great car (and business) needs a great driver.
In the movie, Ford vs Ferrari, it was easy to see how every driver was in it to win it. They knew they couldn’t hold back. Or coast. Like the old saying goes, the race goes to the swiftest. The driver who could confidently keep his pedal to the metal the longest had the best chance of winning.
