“Pursue ideas. Chase dreams. Be bold. Enjoy the ride!” – Futurist Jim Carroll

I’m on stage early this morning, so I don’t have a lot of time to write this post. As a result, I thought I would just come up with a list of 2-word phrases that can inspire, challenge, motivate, and encourage you.

I’ve always liked short, sharp shocks of insight (a tribute to Pink Floyd there!) since I find that it can help us to think big and be bold about the future. I guess I’ve done this for a long time; I even used the three phrases that start this list in the title of one of my books!

I’ve always also liked the idea of lists that have a type of ‘number branding,’ and so how about 101?

With that in mind, here goes!

  1. Think big
  2. Start small
  3. Scale fast
  4. Pursue ideas
  5. Chase dreams
  6. Implement solutions
  7. Find opportunity
  8. Dig deep
  9. Seek success
  10. Chase optimism
  11. Focus faster
  12. Learn more
  13. Do good
  14. Do better
  15. Do more
  16. Argue less
  17. Balance life
  18. Find solace
  19. Be scared
  20. Be encouraged
  21. Be real
  22. Seek strength
  23. Develop fortitude
  24. Enjoy youth
  25. Respect wisdom
  26. Get started
  27. Never stop
  28. Be bold
  29. Banish timidity
  30. Be daring
  31. Take risks
  32. Think smart
  33. Be curious
  34. Explore ideas
  35. Enjoy discovery
  36. Avoid grudges
  37. Never shout
  38. Calm down
  39. Listen more
