How to Eat What You Kill


Life only tastes good when you ‘eat what you kill’. In other words, when you hustle for what you earn and someone pays you money in proportion to the service you’ve offered, the idea you’ve created, your ability to execute on it, and their ability to consume it in a way that benefits them.

But, what does it mean when you say you ‘eat what you kill’?

It means the greatest pleasure is going into the jungle and mastering the ability to hunt and survive without the help of masters who only pretend to guarantee our safety. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an employee, a student, a homemaker, a writer, it’s time to start forgetting about all the ways the world has promised you safety and comfort.

You know something?  There is one particular action that could legitimately discontinue a whole lot you do businesswise, in my opinion, and socially.  It will make your entire efforts to this factor out of date and worthless.  An attitude that will totally deflate everything you’ve done. A notion approach to a dead-end. And a stop sign that will invalidate all that you’ve done up to this minute. It’s called quitting. Straight up stopping.

You see, in the event you discontinue, all else stops too. Momentum ceases to exist. And it will make what you’ve completed worthless.

It’s failing…. getting an incomplete or an “F” on a paper. Although nobody wishes to be known as a slacker, in many cases we do it consistently in some form or fashion. We quit on ourselves… which is basically saying “F**k you” to ourselves. We quit on our fantasies. We sqash on our dreams.


Success Was Not Built In A Day


Those who know me know just how much I like to run around quoting the phrase, “If you build it, they will come.”  Not only do I believe in it, but I live by it daily.

But even in saying that, let me also say that what you build does not come overnight. Success was not built in a day. It takes more than just words to get it done.


Great Leaders Inspire Action


How do you explain when things don’t go as we assume?

How do you explain when others are able to achieve things that seem to defy all of the assumptions?

For example, why is Apple so innovative.  Year after year, they are more innovative than all of their competition.  And yet, they’re just a computer company.  They’re just like everyone else. They have the same access to the same talent.  The same agencies. The same consultants.  The same media. Then why is it that they seem to have something different?

Why is it that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led the Civil Rights Movement? He wasn’t the only man who suffered in a pre-civil rights America.

And why is it that the Right Brothers were able to figure out controlled powered man flight when there were certainly other teams who were better qualified, better funded, and they didn’t achieve powered man flight?

There’s something at play here.
