A Dozen Mid-Year Reminders
1. Keep Your Boots Muddy. Even though many artists & entrepreneurs are doing some “great” work these days, it’s the “extraordinary” work that’s getting the attention and making the big bucks. This should not be new news to you. Your fans, your followers and your customers are now demanding superior products, outrageous service and tear-jerking, sidesplitting, jaw-dropping entertainment. And if you don’t give it to them, they have the entire world in the palm of their hands where they can find it. If you expect your tribe to spend their (limited) time spreading the word about you, then go the extra mile, step up your game and give them outrageous & extraordinary work! This is not the time to hold back—it’s the time to get busy, get sweaty, jump in the mud and get filthy, grimy dirt under your fingernails. These are the days of the crazy artist and the fearless entrepreneur. And if what I’m saying is resonating with you then this is YOUR time! No kidding! This is YOUR time! Don’t waste it. Make something extraordinary happen!
6. Detachment: Remain detached from the outcome: You’re an artist and unlike others, you are privileged to have a endless stream of ideas & possibilities constantly flowing through you. Why would you be stuck on one outcome, only to eliminate a billion other possibilities?
10. Prepare For Battle! The 3-heartless enemies of every artist and entrepreneur are waiting to take you on every day: Procrastination, Distraction and Doubt. When you hear the bell, come out swinging!

Yes, come out swinging and ready for battle! Write down a plan, and when my saboteur starts telling me that I'm no good, I'm crazy, I'm dreaming too high, I'm old, I go back to the plan. And keep the commitment I made. Voices and stones of distraction challenging me to have stamina. To be real. To dig in a little deeper. Share love without fear.

A dozen! It's brings fear to my heart already and I'm not even out of bed yet! I need it tattooed to my body to carry it with me or turn these 12 into audio to auto sublimate it in my ears all day long. Michael you have a nice voice don't you? (Hint,hint) Dang 12 and all relevant. Life is hard. Roll out of bed folks!. There's work to be done.
