Tyler’s First Rule of Innovation:
“No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide.”
This is the most important lesson, and it’s the one people struggle with and resist. Tim Ferriss advocates the 80/20 rule of productivity, where you focus relentlessly on the 20% of the actions that lead to 80% of the return. People see this as nice in theory, but not practical.
Tyler’s Second Rule of Innovation: “No fear! No distractions! The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide!”
Seriously. Don’t break the first two rules.
Tyler’s Third Rule of Innovation: “I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let’s evolve, let the chips fall where they may.”
Tyler’s Fourth Rule of Innovation: “It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.”
Tyler’s Fifth Rule of Innovation: “You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your $%@# khakis.”
Tyler’s Sixth Rule of Innovation:“People do it everyday, they talk to themselves… they see themselves as they’d like to be, they don’t have the courage you have, to just run with it.”
Tyler’s Seventh Rule of Innovation: “Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.”
Tyler’s Eighth Rule of Innovation: “This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time.”
First, you have to know, not fear, know that someday you are going to die. Until you know that, you have no sense of urgency. You think you have all the time in the world to do amazing things, but you may not live to see that particular someday.
So quit reading articles for a bit and go do what really needs to be done today.
