Lauderdale, Florida, to increase the success of their businesses. Through humorous stories from his family and sport figures, Kington of Comedy Central and Blue Collar Radio fame relayed “The Truth about Success and How to Get It.”
The acronym for his keynote address outlined key tips for playing FAIR, meaning:
Initiate and [be]
The first step is staying focused. “Get rid of distractions,” Kington stated. “Use filters to focus.” Pick top three to five tasks for the day or week and steer work toward those areas. Other items that fall outside that list should be the lowest priority.
“Address the core issue and not the circumstances,” Kington warned. “The further I anticipate, the more successful I will be. Anticipating what’s ahead is the key to being successful.”
Those who take initiative get the most done, he said. “The smallest action is greater than the biggest intention.” However, he warned, authenticity is key and a lack thereof is always evident. “Being genuine changes everything,” he said.
Kington emplored participants to delegate tasks, and in doing so, take time to plan what’s to come. Trust your colleagues and direct reports and give them the opportunity to be responsible. Mistakes will be made, but encourage them to learn from those mistakes. Take responsibility for their actions and yours.
