Be A Yes Person

Be A Yes Person.

We understand the ready, fire, aim concept.

But do we live the essential essence of the opposite; intentional and proactive thinking and doing?

Years ago one of my favorite Disney colleagues, Dennis Frare, shared a statement that is one of the most profound truths i’ve ever heard.

To know is to do. To know and not do, is to not yet know.

The value of the following yes-or-no questions is self-evident and irrefutable.

Have fun answering.

  1. i have read at least 24 creativity and innovation books?
  2. i am the most passionate student of creativity and innovation i know?
  3. i subscribe to, and read, at least two daily creativity and innovation blogs?
  4. i have personally written extensively (subjective) about creativity and innovation?
  5. i teach continuous improvement to others?
  6. i understand and practice thinking inside-the-box.

These questions are the ticket to the dance. They are in no way all-inclusive. The road to excellence has no finish line.

Currently as a Husband for 33 years, a Father for 16, and a professional speaker for 18, I began writing 5 daily, and different, blogs on April Fools Day, 2009.

Back then, it was simply a 100-day challenge to deliver on a promise I made to myself as a College Junior in 1979 - write a book about Life, for my children.

Who would have thought it would take 30 years to get started?
