Seth Godin wrote this and it’s so perfect I did not change a single word:
When you are sitting right on the edge of something daring and scary and creative and powerful and perhaps wonderful… and you blink and take a step back.
That’s the moment. The moment between you and remarkable. Most people blink. Most people get stuck.
All the hard work and preparation and daring and luck is nothing compared with the ability to not blink.
Shameless Promotion: It takes practice and courage to not blink. If you’re a CEO who would like to get your creative juices flowing, let’s get together and brainstorm. Having an outsider keep the conversation going is great “therapy”. Try me. I’m cheaper and better than a therapist.
