Icarus

Son of Daedalus who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Daedalus had been imprisoned by King Minos of Crete within the walls of his own invention, the Labyrinth. But the great craftsman’s genius would not suffer captivity. He made two pairs of wings by adhering feathers to a wooden frame with wax. Giving one pair to his son, he cautioned him that flying too near the sun would cause the wax to melt. But Icarus became ecstatic with the ability to fly and forgot his father’s warning. The feathers came loose and Icarus plunged to his death in the sea.

It does not matter if you only ten minutes or ten hours a day to work towards any goal. What matter is the you keep moving forward. Fail forward succeeded forward. 

Two Wolves 

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

A beautiful constraints
  • Constraints are positive not negative
  • When confronted with constraints the first stage you enter is the victim stage. With ambition step into the transformative stage
  • Don’t fall into your normal comfort zone or repeat old habits when faced with constraints
  • Ask propelling questions (answer with impossible answer)
  • Use your can-if mind ( we can-if we)
  • You have more sources of resources 
  • Creative ambition need emotional motivation 
  • Zero resources can lead to a fertile outcome ( think outside the box) 
  • Embrace a culture of constraints like Ikea, Nike, and Unilever.
  • Scarcity/abundance age in an infinite loop 
  • See constraints in a different light.
