We observe that great changes in #technology can change the world. As the world changes, our vocabulary expands, language evolves, and new words are added to the dictionary. This is the #experience of #growth through changing systems and definitions. Our own personal systems and definitions are no exception. #adapt #progress #evolve

"Smart sees what there is. Stupid sees what could be. Smart listens to the head. Stupid listens to the heart. Stupid might fail. Smart doesn’t even try. Stupid improvises. Stupid Creates. If you’ve never done anything stupid, you’ve never done anything at all" #BeStupid

Just a #BadGame …

That’s it. Sometimes its the big game, the pick up game, or the game leading into the next round. It might be a painful loss, a sloppy win. It happens. The measure of a great team comes from their ability to chalk it up as a bad game, learn from it, and move on. #Sportsmanship. You can’t fall apart in the 9th and call out everyone’s mistakes before the game is over. Don’t yell over to the coach in the dugout to complain about how the second baseman dropped the ball. No use in making a routine out of throwing everyone under the bus in the post game. Get up, dust off, and push the team through that last inning. Get the base hit, or lay the bunt. Step your game up, be quick on your feet, stop pointing the finger and get the ball in the right hands, even if they’re your own. Use your position to allow the team to play theirs even better. There are no W’s in the blame game, only L’s. If you can’t get that, then sit the bench. Otherwise, grab your shit and hustle out to the field. Keep your eyes open for the next pitch.

Expose yourself to the best things people have done, and bring those things into what you are doing.

#Creativity. #Focus. #Love. #Will. These are the keys to making your dreams a reality.#LTD
