- Stay safe.
- Make Raving Fans.
- Create Value.
- Uplift your teammates.
Inspiration is the fuel for all 4: (we didn't name the company as a reference to nitrogen).
- Injuries/accidents always follow moments of not being fully present.
- It's hard to be a raving fan of the uninspired.
- The default for most people is to extract value. To create value requires inspiration.
- True inspiration uplifts those around you automatically.
Sounds great - we all want that.
How do we get it when we all think "I must be off track - I don't feel inspired in the slightest today".
The trick seems to be to expect it and to just grind.
Go in and work like a Marine in 1942 Guadalcanal knowing that the muse will come. Waiting for inspiration is like expecting a woman to be attracted to the intensity of your desperation. It doesn't work like that. At all.
So stop reading and go build something that's hard to build. Nothing will be more terrible or more wonderful. We all love you very much. Good night.
