1/31/18 - DEUCE Gym is Hiring (and so is Everyone Else)

You heard that correctly. DEUCE Gym is hiring. The truth is, while we make everyone go through Coach’s Prep, we’ve always been hiring. Now with DEUCE Athletics and DEUCE Backlot, the need is stronger than ever. Coincidentally, do you know who else is hiring?

Everyone. 

The New England Patriots, Berkshire Hathaway, Ford, and, hell, even the Foo Fighters are hiring, too. Sure, economies see ebbs and flows, but everyone is hiring because the rule of thumb in performance is that you can’t argue with results. If you can win more football games than Tom Brady, then you, too, can be the quarterback of the Patriots. Even in this economy, Ford is looking for impact players. Can you melt more faces than the current bassist for the Foo Fighters? Grab your axe, brother. You’re in!

If you’re ever feeling defeatist about a lack of opportunity around you, remember that it pays to be a winner. Since organizations live and die based on their success, you’d be pleased to find that if you can do it better than the current guy, you won’t go jobless.

Everyone is always hiring. It’s up to you to leave no doubt.

Rewind the tape. Were you looking for what's true or were you looking to be right? While the former will always lead to more questions, it does maintain integrity and it puts you on a path towards betterment. The latter, however, isn't much of an adventure. It's small, defensive, and, in the best cases, leads to stagnation. ...

I felt my fingers loosely whip in a perfect punctuated follow through with each arm swing. At the time, I was running south on Penmar Avenue. No, I wasn't evading anyone. I got frustrated and went for a run as training for the day. As someone who isn't a runner, I realize how unbelievable this story already is. Usually, you ...

More so than ever, we’re all witness to the power of exponential upside. Instagram, a company not five hundred days old with less than twenty employees and zero revenue, sold for one billion dollars in 2012. In addition, betting just a $100 bill on Bitcoin seven years ago would pay out $72.9 million dollars today.Sure, th ...

People often ask me how to build a high performance team. They often want to instill things like commitment and "buy-in" in their group, but struggle to manifest these qualities. My answer often rubs people the wrong way.If you ask me, commitment is forged in a rite of passage. Teams with the highest levels of buy-in and th ...
