Do you believe that?
For a musician, you might say that the music is played by just one person. One individual. But when the music is shared – when the audience experiences the music – then the song really comes to life. I believe that playing music is its own reward, but sharing your gifts is the experience that really creates value.

The value is in the sharing. Do you have ideas that need to be shared? That’s where innovation begins. Because sharing will help you to get clear on your results.

Creating new results happens outside of the Land of the Impossible. Here’s how you can get out of that place:
Our thoughts ebb and flow. Sometimes I’m up, and sometimes I’m down. I’m not saying I’m a moody guy (I leave those comments for my wife) but there’s one thing I know about thought: it changes. Moment to moment.
Keep your eyes and ears open for that change. That new idea. Because innovation – and new results – are never more than one thought away.Innovation and new results are never more than one thought away. Click To Tweet
