John Green asks the profound question of great leaders: “What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?” They understand that to do something remarkable, they need to be remarkable – daring and risk-taking, discontent with the “as is” and passionate dreamers in the relentless pursuit of “what can be.”
- Take every opportunity to connect with remarkable people. Poke and prod them. Remarkable seldom happens in isolation.
- Do less of what you did yesterday. Remarkable is about change, never more of the same. There is a caveat. You must never change your passion to do things that matter. You can’t simply chase the latest shiny new object and be remarkable.
- Reject excuses. Do the scary thing.
- Do what makes you happy in service to others. Serving yourself makes you forgettable. Serving others makes you remarkable.
- Dig in for the long haul. Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg’s attempt to fly a solar airplane around the world began 14 years ago. Bertrand has raised over 140 million dollars.
- Act your way into clarity. Dreaming is useful only when it inspires action.
- Lean into dissatisfaction with optimism, not despair.
Be remarkable! Do remarkable! Be more than you ever dreamed you could be… and more… so much more.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
