“The coffee mug is full, it’s 10:30 pm, but it feels like 10:30 am. You are experiencing the rush of being “in flow”.
You’re furiously typing your ‘big idea’, and you know the hair-brained scheme you just dreamt up is going to be a winner. A big winner.
You’re at 200 MPH, and you just know you can push the needle further.
I’m doing this right now… only still adventuring at the same time. Look for a Kickstarter Blackbox release tomorrow. Thanks for defining how my brain works Hugh MacLeod.
Just a thought… of the day :)
Thanks for the reminder Hugh.
There are a couple reasons why I have never applied myself in the corporate world. This is one of them…
“Back in my early corporate days, this came as quite a shock to me: that people sitting around the table didn’t always say what they were REALLY thinking! Shock! Horror!
But why would anyone lie? Aren’t we all meant to be on the same team?
But after a while, you get used to it. After a while, it’s normal. After a while, you learn to laugh at it.
And that’s when the cartoon appears…”
Interestingly enough… you can apply this concept directly to relationships too.
Straight from Hugh…
“To paraphrase Graham Weston, the Chairman of one my clients, Rackspace, “Everybody wants to play on a winning team, doing something that matters.”
In other words, everybody wants to be a rock star, doing rock star stuff with other rock star people.
So I drew a rock star cartoon on the subject.
And so there y’are…”
Whose winning team are you playing on?
We often forget who we are.
We often forget what is really important.
We often forget who’s really important.
We are so easily distracted.
We forget how to listen.
Such an amazing reminder to us all… Thanks Hugh.
