Key Takeaways

  1. You can’t be married to an outcome. You have to be willing to start something and just see where it’s going to go, be willing to evolve with it, and sometimes be willing to jettison if things don’t work out.
  2. You are not going to defeat the negative voice in your head by learning something new. You’re going to defeat it by remembering what you already know about yourself.
  3. Many of us do not work in our area of brilliance, because we believe there is not enough struggle in that.
  4. Recognize that you’re already a change expert. You rebuild every day.
  5. The word “NO” can be both a weapon and a savior, it just depends on how we use it.
  6. Stop saying no to your possibilities. Say no to your presumed obligations, which are mostly self-imposed.
  7. Not everything has to be awesome. Sometimes it just has to be done.
  8. You need to learn to embrace intentional ignorance and use that as a way to de-clutter your life, de-clutter your mind, and learn how to focus on what’s really important.
  9. Practiced intentional ignorance can truly be bliss.
  10. Turning your preconceived notions upside down.
