You Cannot Run

A friend of mine from AdvoCare shared some insights that I thought you would find enlightening. I modified the analogy to reflect our group.

Every day, we hear or otherwise learn about people whose behavior causes them to try to avoid personal responsibility; they claim they “didn’t do it,” or that they “didn’t mean to” or they “didn’t know.” For every action – or inaction – we set into motion an eventual consequence; that consequence isn’t always immediate nor is it fully predictable, but the consequence will appear – sooner or later. If the farmer plants corn, but intended to plant watermelon, he won’t get watermelon, he’ll get precisely what he planted, regardless of his intentions or actions or excuses – or his wishes.

If someone plants a rosebush in their backyard, but the winds blow weed seeds into that same fertile soil, the rose will grow but so will the weeds; and the weeds will – over time – strangle the rose. The planter may explain that his or her intentions were good, but neglect and carelessness always sets into motion an untended consequence. “Wishing it weren’t so” doesn’t matter – we always reap what we’ve sown, whether intended or unintended; that’s a law of nature, and no amount of human excuses, explanation or rationalization makes any difference in the court of nature.

What we see is simply an issue of ‘cause and effect.’ We can try to avoid the effect, but it lingers until later, and when the effect arises, we will suffer the consequence, no matter how remorseful we may be and certainly not if we promise never to do it again; for every cause, a coming consequence.

This ‘cause and effect’ phenomenon works in all areas of our life; our actions set into motion a law of nature, and it works in our spiritual world, it works in our personal world and it works in our business world; if, for example a business owner knows the value of having a business that can run by itself, and does nothing about that but plans to in the future, the wheel of consequence begins to turn, and the seed of chaos has been sown. And now, here’s my real point; if a person ‘intends’ to catch up on and pay off all of his debt but doesn’t, there’s a coming consequence; if a person ‘meant to start’ investing part of his or her income so they can begin earning interest instead of paying it – but never gets around to it – all of the clever explanations in the world won’t make any difference. If a person builds a business but fails to document what they do and what they want others to do for them, then once again, the law is set into motion.

But ‘down the road,’ as he or she enters the autumn of their years, with a business that requires them more than they require it, the day of ‘wailing and gnashing of teeth’ will inevitably come. It’s best to learn – as quickly as possible – the discipline of self-responsibility!

As I read Ron’s words, I can’t help but hear all the ‘excuses’ that arise when people are challenged with rolling up their sleeves and doing the work that is required to free them of future chaos. It’s not just in processes and procedures, it’s in all areas of our life. So many of the troubles people experience are simply the consequences of the seeds they sowed back in the day when they had the energy and time to do it right, and did not. It’s not about being a good or bad person, not at all. It’s about taking the actions that are needed to ensure the seeds sown are the ones you can predict your future consequence, and that prediction is a good one.

Remember, the world doesn’t respond to Need, it responds to Seed! ~ Jim Rohn

What Are You Planting Docanddo

Mikkel Pitzner Thinking Feat

Why You Should Consider The Doc&Do Platform To Manage Your Business

At our outset last year when we established Pivot Point Enterprises, my business partner and our COO, Frank Curtin and I envisioned helping business owners and entrepreneurs running small to medium sized businesses.

We wanted to create an online platform for these business to manage all their business operations on. A platform on which they could document all their daily “How Tos” and procedures specifically relevant to their businesses, so that the information was safeguarded against personal accidents and loss of key employees.

A platform on which the business owners, directors and employees could collaborate on the best practices for their businesses, being able to review notes, comments and previous versions, and having the ability to invite others in to participate or simply view on a specific document level, department level or by other criteria.

Specifically aimed at making it a cloud based platform, with the strictest levels of security, but such that the information was available for those who needed it even when they were on the go, from any device and in such fashion that you could retrieve, comment on, send etc. documents on the fly as well as invite or indeed un-invite people to areas of your business.

Well, six months later and we have done just that.

We now have a fully operational tool that does all of the above, even if we still run it officially as in Beta stage. But that’s not the full story.

As we progressed with our development, our platform has evolved into something even more powerful and much more versatile than we had originally envisioned, and as we explore more and more usage, we are continuously amazed at just how well the platform can be applied to a number of different tasks and uses for all sorts of businesses, small, medium sized as well as large businesses.

Naturally we are very, very excited about this development and as we continue down the road working with more and more businesses and industries, we will learn of even more uses and learn of how the platform can bring incredible value to just about any business of any industry.

Already, we have begun exploring various uses and applications of the platform and are posting new stories of examples of use in our news feed on our website. To gain a complete view of these examples, please visit http://pivotpointenterprises.com/category/examples-of-use/

As of this writing we have posted two examples of use, being:

And

But many more are to follow with regular interval. We hope that you will join us on the platform and give it a go. You can get started for free so you can test it out.

We are here to help you and like I said, we wish for you to experience just how powerful the platform is and how exceptionally useful it will be in your business as well.

Soon to come, will be stories on:

–       How a Cafe’ is making great use of the platform for not only documenting it’s internal procedures, but also using it on tablets to help employees carry out all Front Of House operations as well as Back Of House operations in uniform and efficient manner.

–       How I, as a serial entrepreneur, board member of several companies, consultant to yet others and with activities in so many diverse companies and activities, spanning several countries even, can use the platform to stay up to date on everything relevant and always in possession of the most important pieces of information.

–       How a successful Real Estate investor runs and manages his business utilizing the platform and expands his use to include a training portal and communications avenue with student of his expertise.

–       How both Frank and I use the platform to store all our login information, passwords and other credentials, so that we always have these accessible from any device we choose, all while every bit of information is fully secured by bank level security measures.

And there will be more stories and examples as we go along and not least as we learn more from our users.

Pivot Point Enterprises Platform Doc&Do Safe For Heartbleed Bug

Pivot Point Enterprises Ensures Users Business Platform Doc&Do Safe From Heartbleed Bug

Pivot Point Enterprises have been able to confirm that any security issues in connection with the Heartbleed bug have been resolved and no evidence points to any breach.

Highlands Ranch, CO. – April 23, 2014 – Pivot Point Enterprises announced today that their business platform Doc&Do (iPhone app: docanddo and iPad app: docanddo tab) received security updates to remove any concerns about the security of the platform and of users’ sensitive information in connection with the Heartbleed bug.

The important security update was resolved last week on April 14, 2014. No user appears to have been affected by the Heartbleed bug.

We take security matters extremely seriously for our platform, so as soon as we learned about the Heartbleed bug and the OpenSSl issue, we immediately had our security team work on securing our platform”, commented Mikkel Pitzner, CEO of Pivot Point Enterprises and continued: We haven’t detected any signs of suspicious account activity, but we encourage people to update their unique password regardless.”

As part of Pivot Point Enterprises’ efforts to secure their site, they did the following:

  • applied the security patch to each server we have with Amazon Cloud
  • restarted 100% of services to remove likely edge cases
  • changed (rekeyed) our SSL certificates and revoked old ones
  • assessed impact on users and found no impact likely due to our internal encryption used and speed to resolve the issue

Again no evidence suggests any data was compromised, but as an added precaution, Pivot Point Enterprises strongly recommend all users protect themselves by changing their Doc&Do password. This is especially important if the user uses the same password across other websites.

The Doc&Do business platform brings to all businesses a platform, elements of which have previously only been reserved for the very large and affluent corporations.
