This is the second time I'm quoting Seth Godin this morning. And it's only 9 am. The first time was at 4 am (I was coaching a client on the other side of the world). We were talking about "lizard brain". Mostly, I've been thinking about "big plans" and how the lizard brain LOVES to shut 'em down. So I wanted to write about it. And then I received THIS in my inbox.
I cannot, EVER, top this.
In all its reprinted glory, I give you what Seth Godin scooped from my brain:
Make Big Plans
...that's the best way to make big things happen.
Write down your plans. Share them with trusted colleagues. Seek out team members and accomplices.
Shun the non-believers. They won't be easily convinced, but they can be ignored.
Is there any doubt that making big plans increases the chances that something great will happen?
Is there any doubt that we need your art and your contribution?
Why then, are you hesitating to make big plans?
Oh yes, yes, yes. And if you don't know yet what those big plans might be? I still have a couple ofPay-What-You-Choose Clarity Sessions (usually $200 for 75 minute session). Email me your reasonable offer and away we go. Getting you super clear on your big plans...and executing them.
