Bruce Lee Wall Decal

Bruce Lee Wall Decal

A lot of people don’t know that Bruce Lee was not just a martial arts and movie celebrity but also a deep philosopher. One of his favorite quotes Be Like Water is now available as a wall decal.

Also, if you’re into Bruce Lee and his story, you might enjoy the brand new Bruce Lee Podcast, hosted by no other than his daughter, Shannon Lee and my friend Sharon Lee.

Get To Work

“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work.

If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to do an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.

Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction.

Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.”

— Chuck Close

Know Your Company

Know Your Company

Do you have employees? Then you know the feeling when one of them resigns and you didn’t see it coming. It happened to me recently and I wish I would have known about it earlier. Maybe I could have done something about it.

Know Your Company helps you find out how your employees feel about your business, the work, the culture, etc. You’ll be able to address issues before they turn into bigger problems. I will definitely give this a try! Thanks for pointing me to it, Jason!
