If you want to grow, if you want to succeed and if you want to get anywhere in life - you can’t settle. The world keeps moving. Things change. People get more ambitious. New things get discovered. The status quo is that there is no status quo. If you settle, you’ve lost. You’ve been left behind. You’re on your way to becoming irrelevant.
This concept is usually most relevant when you are successful. Success makes you settle. It makes you slow down. It makes you full of yourself. The time to push and search for new is when you’re successful. Most don’t get that. Thats why you see great companies fall, great leaders fail, and great artists dwindle.
If you can live by one rule in the creative world: Never settle is a pretty good one.
This series of content is a small experiment. I pledged to create a piece of content on my site for the next 365 days. You can read the opening post here. The posts aren’t limited to thoughts or ideas, they’re really just a way for me to create original content. If you got any feedback/questions, please reach out. Thanks for looking.
