Million Different Ideas

1) Go for slightly unusual.  If you think like everyone else, you’ll create like ’em too.  Your offer’ll be no different, no better than your competitors’.  On the other hand, they’ve proven what works.  So to do the exact opposite?  May not be smart, either.  Which is why slightly unusual ideas, I believe, are the G-spot.

2) Ideas are birthed by the things you’ve done and learned.  So if you live a dull, dumb life, you don’t have much to pull from, do ya?  Creativity comes from curiosity, exploration, reading wide, from turning off autopilot and actively approaching each day.

3) If you think you’re onto something, double down.  See what that next card is.  Don’t let the fear of humiliation or failure stop you halfway.  Which is how every umm-it’s-okay business is built.  Not yours.

Sean Penn

“One of the reasons people sell out so quickly is because even the talented think they’re frauds.  It’s a culture that doesn’t encourage people to believe in the work they do.  You’re told to second-guess yourself all the time.  That’s where I think a little hostility and arrogance can save you.  And I’ve never been lacking for either.”

“I think life’s an irrational obsession.”

Humor Writing Kennedy

These are my notes from Dan Kennedy’s book Make ‘Em Laugh & Take Their Money.

Being funny is serious business.  It’s hard.  And writing humor is harder than speaking it because you don’t get to use gestures, facial expressions, props, or benefit from peer pressure placed on the group by the first few who laugh.

People buy more and buy more happily when in good humor.

Today, it’s more dangerous to be funny than ever before.  Why?  Political correctness, sensitive, sue-happy audiences.

But it’s also necessary, now more than ever, because people are buying based on who they like the best; instead of who has the best deal.  And attention spans are getting shorter as minds are turned to mush by constant, multi-sourced, multi-sensory stimulation.
