The Herd and The Movement

Think differently
The current Jeopardy phenomenon does it differently than anyone else i’ve seen.

He’s been on such a long win streak that they are giving him time off and then he’ll return to keep it going.

The Herd and The Movement.

The trick to standing out is to be better or different (or both) than everyone else.

If you are doing it like the masses (The Herd) how can you stand out? How do you grab anyone’s valuable attention?

You can’t.

It’s insanely risky to invent a new way – a way no one else has succeeded at doing.

Like a broken record: Taking risks is risky, so is playing it safe.

What Are You Waiting For?

Doing remarkable work isn’t for the timid

Only these items, plus what i wear on the plane, for an 11-night trip to Glacier National Park. Plus, temps will be near freezing most mornings. Remarkable.

Remarkable work is normally done by people who .think .differently about their priorities.

There are exceptions, but as it implies, exceptions are rare. People win the lottery jackpot, but they are the exceptions.

If Disney Ran Your Life

Being remarkable is a superpower

Tom Brady at Walt Disney World
The greatest of all time. People remark about this all the time. People also remark about the “I’m going to Disney World” commercials.

Being remarkable is a superpower.

The thesis statement for how to transform your work

All you need is faith, trust and Pixie Dust.

 

The thesis statement for how to transform your work.

Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

 

If you work for someone else, you will never be compensated for what you are worth.

Wait, sorry, correction – you are paid what you’re worth – a corporation has an obligation to control costs.

Labor costs are managed by having yearly caps for salary increases.

So your 2-3% increase is all you’re worth in the corporate machine.

Suggestion: start your own enterprise and you will find out quickly (give it at least three years) how much you are worth.

PS. The only way to be successful in a sea of people trying to do exactly what you are trying to do – starting a business – is to be different than everyone else.

You can try to be the best in the world (unlikely) or you can try to be different.

There are a million ways to stand out – you simply have to invent yours.

Over-focusing is the only way this is possible.

You can just sense there is something remarkable inside

Outside Montreal’s Notre Dame Cathedral…you know there is something remarkable inside.

 

The workbook draft was sent to my International Graphic Designer last night. Anticipating something remarkable. We met a few days ago at the Apple Store. My goal was to reinforce the vision of a workbook that is simple, elegant, and different than typical seminar workbooks.
