Early in my career, the crusty cigar-sucking CEO of the ad agency where I worked used to preach to all of us creative types that “Nothing happens until people get excited.”
At the beginning of 2009, as I had done at the beginning of very year for the past ten years, I resolved to”really try to lose weight and get more healthy this year.”
Hah! If all it took was a resolution, I would have been at my ideal weight by then. Hell, I needed a full-blown REVOLUTION! I needed to get excited, really excited.
For me, the guilt-ridden product of Catholic schools where nuns use to run kids into the ground for “disobeying,” getting excited involved fear. After 12 years of that kind of education, not only did I learn about fear, I also learned how to REVOLT. REVOLT involves facing and rebelling against the fear.
On a personal level, it also involves setting Big, Brash and Believable Goals. Big, Brash and Believable Goals scare a lot of people, but without them, you won’t get excited.
What Big, Brash and Believable Goal would constitute a REVOLT that would really excite you? Tell us about it–we DARE You!
