We are living in one of the greatest times in history.
Never before could you work from anywhere on earth, with people you’ve never met, on projects that can reach the entire world.
Never before could you raise money from hundreds of complete strangers based on a video shot on your cellphone and edited in an afternoon.
Never before could you contribute $25 to the prosperity of a hopeful business owner in an impoverished country halfway around the globe, instantly, from your desk, just because you felt like it.
Never before could you access any knowledge within seconds, start learning something within minutes and find community on any topic, anytime.
Never before was it so easy to fulfill the promise of “you can do anything you put your mind to.”
There are so many reasons this is one of the greatest times in history.
How are you going to take advantage of this incredible time?
I used to think it was a silly waste of time to think about a vision for my life. Who does that?
Every creative person, every entrepreneur and everyone who tries something new needs to realize and accept this. Your work is going to suck in the beginning.
The Work and The Results are two different things. You can’t say “I want to do the results.” You can only say “I’m going to do the work.” You might want to accomplish the results, but results only happen because of the work you do.
Motivation is a funny thing. We can feel sluggish, depressed, tired and unmotivated towards the work we *know* we want/need to get done.
I read last week that a record number of people are leaving their jobs. They’re leaving because we’re in a tight labor market right now, and finding a better job is easy.
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You start working on a new task, which requires you to do some research or look something up.
