“By most measures, 2018 was a bad year for me. I was struggling on many fronts and was headed nowhere. Thankfully, a good friend introduced me to Kishore and we decided to meet. At first, I couldn’t fathom anything positive coming from the meeting. After all, I am a well-read, well-traveled, seasoned entrepreneur. How could Kishore offer me anything new?
Luckily for me, we had a wonderful conversation. I couldn’t help noticing the fire and passion in him. This led to another conversation. And then another! I even remember spending a full day with him discussing entrepreneurship, innovation, and cognitive biases. I saw how even the best of entrepreneurs couldn’t always correctly identify their problems.
Soon, I was doing a lot less talking and a lot more listening to him. I noticed how his instincts were always spot-on and realized that the time he had taken to know me and my patterns was yielding rich dividends. His advice was based on a solid, scientific foundation. Yet, it put me, rather than my challenges at the center. This human-centric, holistic approach makes him highly effective. And although he eventually becomes a friend to his clients, he remains an absolute professional who is very consistent in his follow-ups. I was delivered way more than I paid for during our small business engagement.
I just needed something to anchor everything I learned from Kishore to a system for action. So, it’s a good thing he designed NeoPlanner! The genius of it is planning your workday based on your strengths, not the number of tasks or their urgency. In the months I diligently use the planner, I get a tremendous amount of work done against all odds. I stay aware of the tasks that are not in my areas of strength and act cautiously. Whenever I miss using the planner, it clearly shows. My phone starts ringing more and my execution becomes more of fire-fighting. I hope to keep using it every day for the foreseeable future.
Over these 3 short years, I have watched with amazement at how well Kishore has executed on all fronts- building his team, his brand, and tons of tools and content, all while delivering consistent client results. His learning and growth, and the community he has built are just amazing. I would have him back as my coach any day and wish him all the best!”
