Are you a creator?
Create. Lead. Fail. Fix. Empower....Repeat!
The creation formula
Create: You can't schedule vision and creativity. Set up your world to allow you the space to think. I screw this up often. Turn your phone off and automate your life. Online bill pay is wonderful.
Lead: Be a catalytic leader. Most great missions begin with an energetic push. Be that push!
Fail: Do this quick and embrace it. Actually, expect it.
Fix: DEAL, DEAL, DEAL! Always deal with the messy stuff just as quickly as you screw it up — especially the human-related part. Resist the temptation to hide. RUN INTO THE FIRE!
Empower: Build another leader to replace you. Get out of their way. Work with them behind the scenes. Don't let your ego screw this up.
Repeat: Don't buy a boat and stop. We are on this earth to produce. Keep producing!
As Red from "Shawshank Redemption" said, "Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'."
Inward. Onward. Upward!
