A reminder of “why” I reference numerous times each day. Quotes are cheesy and overdone but they do hold a special power of motivation.
My only caveat is (yes, it’s a quote) “you own the post-it, the post-it doesn’t own you.”
Simon Sinek, Seth Godin, Avinash Kaushik, Mitch Joel, Malcolm Gladwell, and the list goes on… all experts in the field of modern business philosophy or as I like to refer to it, “Think Why”.
These individuals have made an impact in my professional and personal life. I am a fan, but also a student of their modern school of business and relationships. Yes, these individuals have many differences but what is more important to highlight is what they have in common.
Creating change doesn’t take millions of dollars and multiple Harvard degrees; it takes just one thing… the ability to never recognize the status quo as reality.
Let me explain. Like a scientist uses research to formulate a hypothesis we (creators of change) use the past as a foundation, use the present as our spring board or challenge and the future is where we set our target. Creators of change see the future as a blank canvas rather than a pre determined color by numbers.
By all means learn from the now and embrace today but don’t let it determine the art you create tomorrow. May your creation be bold, bright, and most of all priceless.
