3-2-1: Creativity, taking action, and the two-step process for exceptional results
Happy 3-2-1 Thursday!
Here are 3 ideas, 2 quotes, and 1 question to consider this week.
3 Ideas From Me
“The 2-step process for exceptional results:
(1) Spend a little time each day thinking about the highest leverage activity available to you.
(2) Spend a little time each day working on it.”
“With the creative process, the key is to create a lot and edit a lot.
Make more than you need, then remove everything that isn’t exceptional.”
“What you do on your ordinary days determines what you can achieve on your extraordinary days.”
2 Quotes From Others
Novelist Paulo Coelho on taking action:
“One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.”
Biologist Roger Payne on the power of having your boots on the ground and paying attention:
“Any observant local knows more than any visiting scientist. Always. No exceptions.”

1 Question For You
Is it better to delay getting started by weeks or months so I can be fully prepared? Or is it better to start right now with little to no preparation?
