I believe that things die (like your creativity and your excitement) when you stay in your comfort zone. So you have to keep asking yourself— are you doing things that scare you shitless or are you happy to live in a comfort zone that is below your potential?
That goes for work AND life.
I am constantly pushing myself in my work, whether it’s giving a blind talk at a huge conference or starting a new venture. I am a revolutionary. And the thing is, well, revolutionary means doing something completely new and out-there. If everybody else is already doing it, it ain’t new. And if no one is doing what you’re doing, well then—you’re all alone. You’re taking a leap and that can be scary shit. I have always done this in my life. I’m always leaping and I never know exactly where I’m going to land.
