The Willingness to Try What Hasn't Been Proven to Work

Breakthrough ideas are rarely a result of blueprints and best practices. It's as true in business as it is in art. 

The musician who mimics gets lost in the echo chamber. 

The writer who emulates fails to innovate

The artist who always traces, loses his or her signature. 

The entrepreneur who is building the "next Facebook" is doomed. 

But the things that we're inspired by, moved by and have significant impacts are often the result of somebody with the willingness to try what hasn't been proven to work. 

When I look for stories to tell on the UC , I go out of my way to try things that haven't been proven to work.  Nobody would classify the story of "a man who walks his dog across America" as useful. But it's gambles like this that I'm always looking for. Soon we'll air the story of a bank robber.  I'm always looking on the edges of where I'm at. Things that haven't been proven to work lie on the edges. 

This approach to your work comes with no guarantees. IT could blow up in your face. But it has  a significantly higher upside than best practices and blueprints. 

So, now the only question is you are you willing?

This morning on the podcast I have a somewhat unusual guest. I talk to a guy who wrote a comedic translation of The Bible.

Today on the show, I speak with  Adam Shepard, who shares his incredible story of starting in a homeless shelter with 25 dollars and turning into 2500.  Is the American Dream alive and well?
