“While our first instinct is usually attempting to push harder, it’s more valuable to figure out where to push.” – Taylor Pearson
One of the biggest things I took from the book The End of Jobs by Taylor Pearson is that it has never been easier to do something big.
This simple statement had a pretty substantial impact on my thought process. A few other points in the book also jumped out to me, these are things that I think everyone needs to read and digest not just go in one ear and out the other.
The future is less defined and increasingly up to you to write the future for yourself, so get writing. Do not look at fear or the unknown in the face and then turn around, we avoid making choice because of the unknown surrounding them.
The fun is that entrepreneurship is more accessible, safer and more profitable than ever before in history. As much as the wold may suck sometimes, we are truly lucky to be alive right now.
The internet has created markets and industries that did not even exist 5 or 10 years ago. New industries are popping up every single day, create one. All it takes is a single moment, a single decision, a single win for you to get started.
Take your motivation, the passion and drive to learn/master something new and let it take you to new places you thought you would never reach. Create your own path, there is no one way to get something done, there are billions of people out there and they are all on their own pathway. Forge your own, get things done, be successful.
Entrepreneurship is at the tip of our fingers we just need to seize the opportunities that are before us. You hold the pen and you have the ability to write your life, so get started. There is no better time to start than now, stop floating and get to it.
As humans, we tend to underestimate how much we can get done in three months, but imagine how much we underestimate how much we can do in three years. The possibilities are truly endless, but it is up to you to chase after them and accomplish your goals.
I know for me three years ago I was living in Texas and auditioning for the Kansas City Ballet Summer intensive. That is so far away from where I am now it is almost laughable, I would have never been able to predict the amount that I have grown. Losses will hit you along the way but as long as you do not let them permanently knock you down you will be doing alright.
