Burn the Boats


 For those of you not getting our weekly email newsletter (for makers, mentors, marketers, community leaders, brand builders and “enlightened” entrepreneurs:) here is a link to today’s update for our business growth group.

Today’s theme is choosing COURAGE over comfort – and being willing to not only destroy distractions, get fiercely focused and do all of that other bumper sticker stuff you see on every other entrepreneurial blog…..but to actually be willing to risk something significant, in the service of what you believe.

The more doors you intentionally close – the more important it becomes that the one’s you gently prod or push – swing open all the way.

Less options = more urgency.

And as anyone who watches Game of Thrones already knows, when you burn the boats, you’ve got to be extra clever, creative and ambitious to survive.

Here is to hoping we make it to Season 9. 🙂

Hope all is well with you!
