Hey there, hero!

I’ve often shared my definition of success: do more of what works, and less of what doesn’t.

But there are a couple of things that are hidden in that short phrase. One of them is being willing to test your assumptions, accept the results, and then let go of those things you see aren’t working.

But are you willing to do that? Are you willing to say that something isn’t serving you or doesn’t work for you? Do you feel like a failure when you do? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. Oh heck yeah, David. My high school English teacher used to call it “over-egging the pudding”.
    I have a crazy work ethic. In fact, sometimes I’ll work until my fingers blister on things that actually come easy to me. As if it didn’t come hard, it’s not worth the time. Or if I haven’t sweat bullets, I’m not worthy of the project.
    It sounds so silly as I write it. but mid-project, I have found myself giving away my riches cheaply whilst tying myself up in knots thinking, “It’s supposed to be harder than this, Im supposed to be battling!”
    It’s definitely worth slowing down and learning to be grateful

  2. The subject of this podcast episode has always been one of my favorite bits of advice from you. I’m definitely trying to find out what works and what doesn’t at the moment, particularly regarding my current demos. Thanks for the video David 🙂

  3. In life in general, it is very hard for me to let go. I appreciate your permission slip to encourage us to let go of what doesn’t work. I love when you say be “bold”! Thank you.
