What do you care about enough to fix, or disrupt, or invent?
Don’t avert your eyes. Look at the opportunity.
It’s your turn to: Ship. Speak up. Stand out. Build a following. Market a product. Make a connection. Solve an interesting problem. Write, sing, create, ask a question, launch a project, learn a new skill, help someone who needs you.
Looking for reassurance? It’s not here, and it wouldn’t do you any good if it were.
We’re capable of creating work that matters only if we’re willing to be uncomfortable while we do it.
We have to live with this paradox: It might work./It might not work.
If fear is able to keep us from showing up when it’s our turn, then fear has won the day and it will return again and again. Note the fear, welcome it if you can, but do what you should do.
To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.
The person who fails the most, wins.
