Whether you run a company or work for one, we all have the opportunity to be the “bigger, badder, bolder version” of ourselves, says Jeffrey Hayzlett, CEO of The Hayzlett Group, a strategic business consulting firm.

In his latest book, Think Big Act Bigger, he writes that the only way to achieve this is to ditch the excuses and tear down self-imposed limitations. Says Hayzlett, a lack of focus is one of the biggest limitations and excuses that can hold back leaders and entrepreneurs.

In this Google Hangout, he explains how a scene from Disney’s ‘Up’ helps him identify when a distraction keeps him from running a business effectively, and how breaking down that movie scene helps him stay focused.
