The Art of Being Capable

My greatest goal for wanting to be brilliant 

is the ability to create whatever idea I dream up.

To have, talk about, design, and execute an idea into fruition.

When you’re brilliant,

you are capable of trying any idea you can dream up.

The idea might end up not working, but that’s okay — there’s always other ideas.

Capability. My friends, Capability.


So how do we go about being more capable?

We must deliberately practice the art of being capable.

We dream up an idea.

We talk and get feedback on it.

We design it.

We build it and refine it.

Then we repeat.



“Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.” — Lou Holtz
