I wanted to share with you 10 chapter lessons, along with a few virtual images. The idea is that this book becomes an inspiration manual for your own creative ideas. I can't wait to send your copy!
The book was designed by Firebelly Design in Chicago, printed by Shapco Printing in Minneapolis, and made possible by you.
As long as it’s now
If you keep waiting for the perfect moment, you'll be waiting forever. Measure twice and cut once…but eventually you have to cut the board.
You’ve got this
Everyone is not going to agree with you. People might not get it. And that's ok. Don't stop yourself short, trust you are doing incredible things.
Put your back into it
Get your hands dirty
If you're not going to give it your all - stop what you're doing and walk away. Don't be above any job, you need to be willing to do the heavy lifting.
At some point you have to brave the climb, when there is no turning back. Make grand gestures, act unforgettably. Do things that scare the pants off you.
Create an impact
Do a lot with a little
Do something for a stranger unexpectedly, unapologetically say it's ok to be human. Be audacious, a little dangerous, give gifts and have fun.
Start a conversation
See where it leads
Nothing happens when you keep it all inside. Just say hello…something. Your individual voice will change to a dialogue, and nothing will ever be the same.
Make it yours
Run with it
Life is open source, it’s for everyone to interpret and rework. Get inventive, contribute in your own way by creating unique and memorable moments.
And invite people into your world
Give someone a chance to shine, give others opportunities you’ve only dreamed of. Lend a hand, and remember that we’re all in this together.
And define your success
Your path is unique, those bruises and scars show how you never held back. You have no way of knowing what lies ahead, and that's the fun part.
We need you to be larger than life. Be your own parade. Do and create things that leave nothing the same. Let's be human to each other again.
