On UnRewarded Genius

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Unrewarded GeniusGuts. Boldness. Bravery. Perseverance. Big, beautiful words. That any great person+leader+entrepreneur needs to tattoo onto their brain cells.

Success is much more about staying true to your vision in the face of challenges/obstructions than being gifted or expressing some kind of Genius.

I’d rather have average talent with a fierce heart that inspires me to be unstoppable versus being brilliant – but frightened to do anything with it.

Here’s a quote from Calvin Coolidge that makes my point 1000X better than I could. I hope it helps you Be Great:

“Press on. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; there is nothing more common in the world than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

The Virtuoso’s Mantra

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Virtuoso's MantraMany of us field 500+ emails a day. There’s more work and less time. Expectations have never been higher. And the pace of change has now been set to revolutionary.

The best performers have a singular ability: they strip away the noise and focus on doing just a couple of things…really really well. Makes me think of Michelangelo’s protocol for delivery masterpieces: he’d see his David in the block of marble. Then he’d cut away at all that was not of his absolute best vision.

Picasso didn’t play the piano. Federer didn’t learn the flute. All Virtuoso’s have a mantra: “I avoid the trivial many so I can master the vital few.”

Keep Leading Without A Title!
