How busy is your internal editor?

If you want to do something that’s at all original, that’s at all valuable to the market, you need to adopt a leadership position. You’re bringing something into the world that doesn’t yet exist. You get to decide what fits and what doesn’t. And that can be a scary thing. It can feel a bit like swimming in the deep end of the pool for the first time.

Reality is, the change-makers and innovators must have the courage to swim in the deep end of the pool.
When an idea gets you excited, instead of immediately handing it over to your internal editor for a quick, and often final review, consider asking yourself: “Is this feeling maybe an invitation to something big?”

My 2¢:  it’s okay to put your internal editor on hold from time to time.
