TGM 04: You Have To Jump Off The Cliff Before You Can Build Wings

The only way to accomplish things that matter is to take risks. Sometimes, big risks.

This marks my first “solo” show ever. I had the content all planned out and then decided to change it up last minute.

In this “inbetweenisode” I talk about why it’s important (and OK) to take big risks. In fact, it’s necessary if you want to accomplish anything that matters.

Sure, you can play it safe and follow all the rules society has set on us, but that’s the path that leads to regret, my friends. Often the most rewarding things you do in life are the ones that look like they simply can’t be done.

Some wise words to get your juices flowing

“First you jump of the cliff and you build wings on the way down.” ~ Ray Bradbury

“A ship in harbor is safe – but that is not what ships are for.” ~ John A. Shedd

“It seems to me that people have vast potential. Most people can do extraordinary things if they have the confidence or take the risks. Yet most people don’t. They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever.” ~ Philip Adams

“Before you can be creative, you must be courageous. Creativity is the destination, but courage is the journey.” ~ Joey Reiman
