IDEATION WITHOUT IMPLEMENTATION IS DELUSION
Implement and Adapt
Do it, see what works, change what doesn’t. Do it again.
Don’t work the hardest. Seek the shortest path to the result you want.
Start with Why
Simon Sinek said it best. If you don’t know why you do it, no one else will. www.startwithwhy.com
I’m not here to put in time, I’m here to get the job done. www.gorowe.com
Get Shit Done
That’s it. Get Shit Done.
Dream. Plan. Do.
Having the best plan in the world means nothing if you don’t follow it. Thanks Kim.
Failure is Necessary
If you have never failed, you haven’t risked enough.
Know when to Quit
Quitting is not giving up. It’s knowing when to retreat, regroup, and begin again with a lesson in hand.
Release – Revise – Release – Revise.
Let your consumer inform your direction.
Minimum Viable Product
What is the least amount of energy that can be spent to get a product or concept out in the world?
What is the least amount of money that needs to be spent to prove a product?
Take one day every week, and focus on something that you are interested in, that isn’t related to your everyday tasks. Spend it staring out the window. Spend it helping someone else craft their ideas.
4-hour work week
Love the work you do. Consciously craft your life.
6 and 1
Work 6 weeks – Take 1 week off. And make it truly a week of rest. No email, no phone, no stress.
Craft your life so that you are not tied to place.
People are not motivated by money, but by autonomy and purpose.
Take an hour every day to work on yourself. Walk, read, think, improve your body and your mind. Dedicate this time to making yourself better.
Circle of Genius
Surround yourself with people that elevate your mind, spirit, and energy. Connect with people that are better than you. Spend your time with the people that challenge you to grow, to change, and to improve. Look around you… the people that you have coffee with are the person you will be in 5 years.
Connect to the world. You are connected to the earth and need to be physically hooked in every day.
Fuel your body with the best you can. Your health will determine your ability to compete, deliver, and sustain.
You can get to the top, without stepping on the people you pass on the way up. Csikszentmihalyi!
Be a mentor, get a mentor. You’ll learn from both.
Never give up. Never give up. Never. Give. Up.
