This post is a random set of quick thoughts and questions.
Most of your fears are learned and mostly negligible.
Leapfrog opportunities are life’s cheat codes. How can you save years getting to where you want to go? Some examples – create a new category, partner with the right person / entity, build a community, and ask fearlessly.
Comfort can be a special kind of prison – thinking small is a very real punishment that robs your upside and the world of your gifts.
More problems and critics are an immensely positive sign. Embrace this as indication of your growth and ability to take rapid, fearless action.
Consistent effort over time pays off. Everything is compound interest. Exponential growth feels flat for a while, and then you’ll feel the rapid build up.
Why do we feel so inhibited? Take control and own your full power. Scare people a little!
Making a trail is more fun than following a path.
When you’re swimming with sharks, find a way to be the whale.
I need to maximize. And to maximize, I need to be fanatically authentic, take ever bolder risks, challenge you and myself, set boundaries with my time and energy, welcome controversy if there is truth, and emphasize evolving. Maybe sprinkle in a big bear hug, a healthy cry, or a “f@#k off”.
Success is measured by your capacity to give and receive love.
There is a side of you that is like nobody else. Embrace these qualities. Express full comfort in your individuality – life somehow works better when you own the fact that you are different.
Ask yourself. Are you being ambitious enough?
Does the atomic hypothesis define systems beyond the physical? What is the analog for music, emotions, and other intangibles?
There’s a lot of philosophy on work culture, which poorly addresses the “why”. Culture should be a means to enable full authenticity and intensity for all parties involved. From this, you maximize productivity and happiness, and screen faster for organizational fit. Dissatisfaction can be pinpointed to inauthenticity.
