I do this because the Code is my best idea and I want to breathe life into it. The only way to do that is to work on it; to work at it.
So I’m curious, what are you working on right now?
Are you working on anything at all? Or are you just kind of treading water?
That idea you had last year or the year before? That thing you thought of that excited you? What happened to it?
Did it just kind of slide? Did you let it slip away into memory?
See, your best ideas come to you for a reason.
Because they can be extraordinary if you let them
And they need you to let them, because nobody else can.
Breathe life into them, otherwise you’re simply accumulating a lifetime’s worth of potentially extraordinary ideas in preference for treading water and doing what’s easy or expected.
You’re just stuffing furniture with ideas and parking your butt on top of them.
That, my friend, sounds like the longest, slowest, saddest kind of death…
Step up and open up your best idea. See what’s inside it. See how you could breathe life into it.
Explore it with confidence in your ability to explore it, and you might just create, build or make a difference to something.
Don’t worry about how it might turn out or if you’re up to it. That’s the thinking that stopped you from starting last time around, remember?
If it turns out to be a dud, chalk it up to experience and move on. That’s just how it works sometimes so don’t sweat it.
It doesn’t matter if your best idea is a “success” in a conventional sense. It only matters that you give it a chance to be as extraordinary as it might be, which in my book is all the success you really need.
Otherwise, you’re just wasting your time.
Tell me, what are you working on? What would you love to work on?
