It's Okay to Colour Outside the Lines…Really!!
I tend to push limits, ask hard questions and find/create solutions that are outside of traditional systems and typical expectations. I'm a misfit for sure. Increasingly, I'm practicing a life of non conformity. This means that I colour inside the lines as little as possible – in my business and in my life. Truth be told – I strive to get way outside the lines as often as possible.
Conformity, systems and rules are highly over rated. Chase Jarvis gave an amazing talk on creativity at World Domination Summit in Portland in July. It reminded me about how much it matters to get way outside the lines – in work and in life.
Now of course, there are moments and reasons to respect rules, systems and lines; however the more you can get away from them – for the right reasons – the better your life will be. I promise.
Are you colouring within the lines too often?
