    OUTCOME < PROCESS

    WHEN THE OUTCOME DRIVES THE PROCESS WE WILL ONLY EVER GO TO WHERE WEVE ALREADY BEEN. IF PROCESS DRIVES OUTCOME, WE MAY NOT KNOW WHERE WERE GOING, BUT WE WILL KNOW WE WANT TO BE THERE.

    THE MARKET AND ITS OPERATIONS HAVE A TENDENCY TO REINFORCE SUCCESS. RESIST IT. ALLOW FAILURE AND MIGRATION TO BE PART OF YOUR PRACTICE.

    EMBRACE FEAR. EVERY DAY.

    DO THE ONE THING YOU THINK YOU CANNOT DO. FAIL AT IT. TRY AGAIN. DO BETTER THE SECOND TIME. THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO NEVER TUMBLE ARE THOSE WHO NEVER MOUNT THE HIGH WIRE. THIS IS YOUR MOMENT. OWN IT.
