had the opening keynote for World Domination Summit 2015 and it was a great combination of humor, insight, and vulnerability. His video is now live and the message to you and me was (I'm paraphrasing):
"Don't try to do so much and be a hero all the time!" and "Just because you can monetize doesn't mean you have to."
Jon's a master speaker and had people hanging on his words. The whole thing is great, however I most recommend time stamp 17:33 - 20:24. Here are a couple of quotes to give you context:
"That's the thing about dreams. You're only a verse in a long song and you don't get to see it completed until other people finish it for you ... Will I face the fear of today or the regret of forever?"
"If you're having trouble finding your voice, feed it some time ... My third grade daughter said, 'Dad ... why would you ever do something just for money? You already have some.' And I love that word – some. Kids think you need some money. Adults think you need enough money ... And what you learn is that enough's not going to come. And sometimes, when you get more money, it costs you your voice."
"Can I pay you not to write about the thing you love?" (Context: people chasing traffic and money because they focus on what "works," not what they love).
