“Fun fact: successful people usually get to the future before the future actually happens!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
If you hang out with successful people, you’ll notice that they share share several common attributes:
- an ongoing willingness to learn about the things they don’t know
- an attitude that involves continual, relentless exploration based on hands-on experience
- a relentless curisoity as to what makes things ‘tick’
- a never-ending desire to reinvent their world for what they perceive will happen next
- a steadfast refusal to accept the status quo
- a vast impatience with the ways that things are
- an attitude that is driven by the question ‘why not?’
- a dismissive approach to those who would dare suggest that their idea is a dumb idea
- a dogged pursuit of their beliefs
- a history of mistakes which are simply the bedrock for the next step of the journey
- a mindset that if it is not yet invented, it might as well be!
- a willingness to ask questions and then, more questions
- a refusal to accept that things will stay the way they are
- a relentless effort to shape things to the way they could be
- an intense frustration with those who are stuck in a rut
- a burning knowledge that to be stuck in such a rut is a path of doom
- an ability to ignore those who might say ‘it can’t be done’
- a determination to prove that it can be done
- an unbending belief in the direction of their efforts
- a never-ending investment in building up the time investment with those efforts
- a motivating sense of purpose that comes from a series of small wins rather than huge home runs
I could go on.
My home broadcast studio fits into every single one of these categories, and more.
I’m already here, in the future, even if my clients aren’t yet!
