FOMO – Fear of missing out.
As entrepreneurs and people that are trying to design their life’s. There is an urge to participate in everything and not let anything pass you by.
The people that Chris has found to be happiest and most successful in their life’s are the one’s that choose exactly the things that they want and cutting the rest out. Remaining open to other stimuli and idea’s but really being selective about what get’s their attention.
Chris say’s his greatest magic powers have been staying very curious about things. Keeping an attitude of wonder as things in business and making change so rapidly everything need to be a learning experience. Business and life should be fun. Think of business like a science experiment that your always learning, testing and tweaking based on the results. Always be growing and enjoying the process.
Building a community.
- Have an exceptionally clear vision of the change in the world you want to create.
- Provide a way for people to easily put their hands up to contribute to the vision.
- Treat your contributors as you would paid employees with structure and framework.
