Happy 3-2-1 Thursday,
Here are 3 ideas, 2 quotes, and 1 question to consider this week…
3 Ideas From Me
“You only need to know the direction, not the destination.
The direction is enough to make the next choice.”
“If you want to find a better path, you have to be willing to explore a different path.
That sounds simple, but how often do you try something different?”
“How to build a career in 7 steps:
1. Do great work.
2. Share it publicly.
3. Cold email people 2 steps ahead of you.
4. Talk about your work and trade ideas.
5. Host events and meet in-person.
6. Become friends.
7. Rise together.”
2 Quotes From Others
Abolitionist, author, and runaway slave Frederick Douglass on taking action:
“I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs.”
The painter Bridget Riley on paying attention to boredom:
“Boredom is a tremendous indicator. Your energy goes; it caves in on you; you can’t do anything. That’s very frightening but you must listen because you are being told that whatever it is you are doing is not quite right. It may only need a small adjustment or it may need more drastic treatment.”
