Make your own luck. Back your idea with passion, creativity, action and perseverance. 

Passion lights your soul on fire – giving direction to your purpose and tuning out the sayers of nay. Creativity leaps over obstacles, connects the missing pieces and solves impossible challenges. Action puts an idea in motion. Perseverance keeps it going long after the uncommitted have been distracted by other shiny objects.

Sham less and rock more. Get out there and make it happen.

Our inboxes often seem to be our worst enemies. “Lost in my junk mail folder” is the new “dog ate my homework”. We strive for the mythical inbox zero, but we seem to be losing the battle of the inbox bloat.
Let’s trying something different: How about creating your perfect inbox?
When you wake up tomorrow morning, what 5 amazing opportunities would you like to find in your inbox?
For me, I’d love to sing the Lions fight song at Ford Field or deliver a TED talk on the virtue of pissing people off or work with the BW3 leadership team (seriously, why hasn’t anyone introduced bacon wrapped wings yet) or collaborate with Sir Richard on Plan B or brainstorm big ideas for Apple retail on the chairlift between ski runs.
Dream big: Business? Pleasure? Now think: What actions should I take to make these emails actually appear one day. Adjust your to do lists accordingly.
It’s a fun exercise to add to your goal list or vision board. If you have photoshop and five minutes, use this perfect inbox template to create a pretty version for yourself.

PUT YOUR WHOLE SELF IN

Before you have half a mind to half heartedly half ass your way through another project, remember that apathy and indifference will never yield more than lackluster results. In life, as in the hokey pokey, you must pour your whole self into your passions, projects and purpose. Get excited. Take great pride in what you accomplish. Life’s far too short to do anything less.  

Download and print today’s #makeithappen poster. Splash it around your workplace. Encourage spontaneous hokey pokey dance and/or pool parties. If virtual pin boards are more your thing, visit the make it happen board on pinterest.

The Defenders of the Status Quo will hate your idea.

They don’t like anything bold or fresh or daring. They are quick to dismiss the passionate, creative and resourceful who venture courageously forward. They have a distaste for heretics, catalysts, innovators outliers, linchpins and people who make it happen. They don’t even like the taste of bacon.

The Defenders of the Status Quo live in a neat and tidy nine to five world. They love to say “that’s the way we’ve always done it.” They put the kibosh on possibility before it’s ever seen the light of day.

The Defenders of the Status Quo are perfectly happy milking their cash cows to death. They are terrified you’ll put your creative idea into action. Quit waiting.

The Defenders of the Status Quo are no match for you.

The Sayers of Nay will never approve. They never like anything besides the status quo. “That’s the way we’ve always done it!” is their mantra. F••• the The Sayers of Nay. Do it anyway.

We love Mondays.

Hooray for Monday. Time to kick off the sheets. Clear out the cob webs. Kick out the jams. We are the ready, willing and able. Bring us a whole case of the Mondays. We’ll grab a bottle, shake it up and dance in the champagne shower of awesomeness. While the drones dread Monday, we see it as a starting line for dreamers and doers. There’s a fresh week of days on the clock. And countless possibilities for our boundless potential. We’re relaxed, recharged and reloaded. Ready to tackle the work we were born to do. Ready create something remarkable. This is not the day to be back at the grindstone. This is the day to be back at our passion. Breathing new life into our projects. We are conduits of innovation, imagination and inspiration. It’s Monday. And we can’t wait to get started.
