Great news: Kids are not afraid of failing

We weren’t afraid to fail as a child.

Now look at us.

If you’re not prepared to fail, you’ll never create anything original.

As you age, you lose the appetite, and the capacity, to be wrong.

My 72-hour challenge to you is simple. Attempt something that will probably fail, but your failure will get you closer than you were before.

And on the off-chance that you don’t fail…congratulations.

Now keep repeating this process.

You’re welcome.

Baltimore winter sunrise
Nice way to start today.

It’s a cold (26) Baltimore morning on the hotel’s 10th floor. The sunrise view is beautiful from our large window.

One of the amazing benefits of being over-focused has been on the intentionality behind me designing a business model that allows working from anywhere to be as easy as working from home.

You can observe a lot by watching.

Leadership Commitment challenges

to do list for graphic design
These are graphic design to-do’s.

Leadership commitment challenges has a different context here than it does at Lane8.org (today). 

The context here is how you lead after the honeymoon effect wears off. There’s always excitement and high hopes when things are new and shiny. We easily rise to the occasion; whether it’s a promotion, a new initiative being rolled out, a corporate merger that is supposed to enhance both cultures into a better, and unified, one.

But eventually and predictably, things are harder and take longer than estimated.

When we grow weary, and the people we lead grow weary, how do we continue to show up with a Day One enthusiasm?

Of course it’s challenging to sustain Day One energy, focus, creativity, and excitement over the long haul (a lifetime?).

Yet this is the essence of great leadership.

Unwavering belief.

And the ability to excite, inspire, and motivate others as if it’s Day One, every day.
