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.

Oh, I Forgot to Mention..

Being Brilliant for brilliance sake isn’t the goal.

The goal is to become brilliant, so that we are capable of doing brilliant things —

for our benefit, AND (more importantly) the benefit of others.

Why be Brilliant?

When you’re brilliant —

Which I equate to Vision + Skill + Wisdom + Action

You’re able to have an idea, see what it could be,

design it, execute it, and refine it.

You understand whether the idea is sound or not, based on what you know, and feedback from early testing.

You know whether the idea is a good fit for you, knowing when to delegate.

And you understand there’s always another idea out there, so you’re not worried, or afraid to toss out a bad one.

Brilliance allows us to be capable of outputting our ideas, whatever the medium, because we have the knowledge to do so, and the mindset you to learn how if we don’t.

It’s having something in your head, and being able to make it real. Idea’s come to life.

I don’t know about you, but I want to make my ideas reality.

Why be Brilliant

Why NOT be?
