Qualify Your Critics
Every critic of mine is required to pass this set of 3 questions. If it meets all 3 requirements, then I will consider this criticism welcome and valuable. I will use it to better myself and grow at my craft. No offense taken.But, if it fails to meet any of these requirements, it gets thrown out with the trash. (I guess they were just having a bad day..?) I refuse to spend any more mental energy on it.

In 2020, we have access to countless resources and ideas.This is an incredible opportunity. We get access to learn and see what others are doing and become inspired by it.But this environment can quickly breed us to lose our own voice, and begin thinking the way others have achieved success is the right way.You must not forget yourself in the equation. Just because your hero took a specific path, doesn't mean you should. You need to do it your way for it to be honest and connect with others.Where can you detach from your hero's pathway, and express yourself moving forward?

You're Paying an Expensive Price
I am currently undergoing some shifts in how I plan my work and projects.Usually, I am really good at this, but lately, it's been tough to stay on top of it all. It's easy to let things slide and tell myself that I'll 'get to it' soon. I keep waiting for the ideal environment to fall in my lap instead of forging it myself.Here is what scares me. All this time I have spent without creating a clear plan for myself has, in fact, been spent.That time is now gone. I'm never getting it back.It is a sobering thought when you consider all the time we spend on our phones or working jobs we hate or waiting until the time is right to start our projects.The clock is always ticking, so waiting costs a premium.And it's not cheap.So today, where can you make a clear plan of action? How can you avoid losing any more precious time without good reason? How can you take action and build those ideal environments you've been waiting for?

What to do when you're stumped
This morning, I am stumped.I have no ideas about what to write to you this morning, but I am showing up anyway. Because that is what I have committed to do.Sometimes, that is all we can do. I am a firm believer in incremental steps being the only way to grow into something substantial.I don't feel bad about it, because I am a human. Sometimes, other things will take your attention or you just won't have it in you. This is okay.But it doesn't mean you don't fulfill a commitment. Even if it just means showing up. If you're feeling low or out of it today, what does just showing up look like? This is not an all-or-nothing game. Bringing a little is better than bringing none.
