Acting vs reacting: three stages

Are you stuck on reacting to life or work? Anything?

Act – First stage

Don’t wait for a new project, go and create it.

Don’t wait for a promotion, go and earn it.

Don’t look at your inbox every 5 minutes waiting for something to arrive. Instead, go and send this emails that will make something happen.

Don’t wait for permission, go and get it, own it.

Don’t wait for asking the question you weren’t allowed. Just stand out and ask perturbing questions.

Don’t wait for anything that really matters to you, go all in.

Act – Second stage

Switch off your WhatsApp.

Mute your phone.

Stop watching Stranger Things or Game of Thrones.

Unsubscribe from Netflix.

Unplug your TV.

Put the noise aside.

Act – Third stage

Act. More. Better. Faster.

Core skills: searching for the best you

If I had to search for the best person to work with me on a new project. I’d look for the following core skills:

  • Initiative or leaping attitude.
  • Discipline.
  • Self-awareness.
  • The ability to lead when everyone is hiding.
  • Decision-making capacity on highly changing environments.
  • The capability of staying human in and out of the Internet.
  • Artfulness for learning anything faster.
  • Being obsessive about small details.

These are the best core skills I know, by far.

This economy begets for core skills, dexterity, real and mind-blowing facts, projects (successful and not so) that get the attention to make a connection. And making a positive impact.

Why are you focused on learning digital marketing or business development if you can’t control the core skills that will bring the best version of yourself? Worth reminding over and over.

It does not work. It’s broken. It’s never going to work again. See what it changes today.

Whatever it was valuable years ago, whatever, it’s not valuable now. Your job is trying to figure out what’s going to be the solution today and then tomorrow. It does not work, sure.

A lifetime opportunity, drawing what’s coming next, and makes it work.
