Do Your Business in the Sunlight


Dear Jack ~ What will you be when you grow up?  Yesterday you wanted to be a race car driver, today it was a ninja, and maybe tomorrow a surgeon.  Nevertheless, this lesson will serve you well in whatever field you choose as your trade.

Between the intersection of transparency and honesty lies authenticity.  This is where I urge you to live.  It’s a delicate dance between broadcasting your plans and appearing suspect to others (Lord knows I’ve failed at this over the years).  But never forget that YOU are the custodian of your future. Opportunity never knocks at the ideal time; but it’s your job to answer.

I implore you to write down your goals, dreams, and aspirations (more on this in subsequent writings).  Science now tells us that writing them down, not simply reciting them in your head, increases their likelihood by 70%.  That’s the difference between playing doctor and scrubbing up everyday.

And remember, authenticity trumps cool, every time.
