At the age of 44, David Alexander was competing in a triathlon with a 28-year-old friend. Everyone said that his younger friend would beat his time. David knew he’d done the work to prepare for the race. He ran his heart out and beat his friend by a matter of seconds. The difference in times was a thin line, but it was enough to send him on to podium in his age group.
This ties into the Member Traffic Light system in BNI Connect. David found that green members gave an average 28.9 referrals over the past six months. The gray members gave an average of 5.6 referrals over six months. It occurred to him that the difference between yellow and green is that thin line. Think about the volume of referrals that would be generated if half of a chapter’s members go green.
If you’re determined to accomplish something, whether it’s going green on BNI Connect or winning a triathlon, avoid distractions.
If you’re an education coordinator, take this podcast back to your chapter to inspire them to go green.
