Because what you do should make you giddy, so giddy, you'll want to share it.
If I have a project in the works and I am fortunate to work with a solid team of creative minds - I recognize my fortune - because we are going to have jam sessions of ideas. We collaborate, we envision with giddy geeked out excitement of what could and can be. And we can't wait to share it, to put forth the project, to bring to life an event all in the hopeful effort to inspire. Which is why I believe; Some people pursue happiness. Other create it. Both are admirable. Both take courage, and honesty. Me - I create - a day, an event, a project brought to life. A mosaic effort of all talents coming together in a final kaleidoscope of labor and thoughtfulness. This is how advancement and innovation begins. Because someone wanted someone else to become inspired to be a better version of themselves. Because I sincerely believe, integrity, authenticity and enthusiasm are contagious. And the world needs more, real, more honesty, more excitement in our daily lives. What I have learned and, still am learning is endless. We spend our lives transitioning and arriving. I have discovered to not make the mistake of thinking I can, or will, or have fully arrived. Whether it is a state of happiness, income, or mindset. Thinking I have achieved is a static worldview and stunts growth. Come to terms with the fact that if you want to achieve, you can never stop trying. If you are so laser-focused on reaching one specific goal - one specific way, you could miss forks in the road that lead to other opportunities, and ways toward a project. Lead with making a positive impact on the world (however difficult that is to measure), inspiring others, being authentic, and, most important, having meaningful and lasting relationships with people who are authentic too. Because if you're not enthusiastic about what you do, then you might want to rethink what you do. Because as far as I know we do this once. #makeitcount
