I am listening to Lex's latest podcast with Walter Isaacson, one of the writers I've enjoyed the most in recent years. His biographies of people like Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Einstein, Leonardo, and Benjamin Franklin are among the most inspiring I've read. There is always something to be inspired by and learn from these larger-than-life historical figures.
I have only listened to half of the podcast because, to be honest, I want to digest what has been shared so far.
Sometimes, to get shit done, I need to let go of the fear of judgment, offending people, or being disliked. When my guiding principles and values are honorable and, of course, I don't harm anyone or put someone in danger in the process, along with all the other obvious considerations that go with it.
I am starting to open my eyes to the truth of how this innocent and widespread fear has affected my life over the years, both personally and professionally.
Now is the time to tackle some of these fears in my daily life and risk being a little more authentic.
Because ultimately, “If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up.”
