In today’s Young Hustler’s Grant Cardone and Jarrod Glandt discuss what happened with the Cincinnati Zoo shooting and killing a 450 lb silverback gorilla that had a 3-year old human child in his grasp. The zoo is getting heat suggesting it did the wrong thing. Grant and Jarrod ask why is this so hard for people to handle? Why do people go into such shock when things like this happen? You need to learn how to put gorillas down in life. Employees who show up late, make mistakes, don’t hit quota, won’t take the time to train and improve themselves and then continue to lower the bar of expectation amongst the rest of your staff need to be put down (fired). What gorillas do you have that need to be put down? We all have to make tough choices sometimes—it’s not easy putting the gorilla down. Get focused on you, go to conferences, read, listen to audio and train so you don’t have time for the zoo. If you’re making money you aren’t at the zoo.
