  4. 4. In business and in life, only those who stand for something truly stand out; they’re Unmistakable — like a one of a kind portrait that doesn’t require a signature. Insight #1
  5. 5. Insight #2 The Unmistakable Creative is hurt less by her critics then by her own voice of destruction, for to get ahead, she remembers Neil Gaiman’s challenge to “go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here.”
  6. 6. Insight #3 Learning to trust your intuition is not without challenge and pain. Still, only by choosing to experience the pain will you see the kind of character transformation that wouldn’t be possible without it.
  7. 7. Insight #4 In the mind of the Unmistakable Creative, Imitation is not the greatest form of flattery... adaptation is.
  8. 8. Insight #5 “I have to remind myself that some birds aren’t meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice.” - Morgan Freeman on character
  9. 9. Insight #6 When you’re impossible to replicate, you’ve started to trust your inner compass. The inevitable outcome of your work is likely to become the combination of unpredictable and delightful.
  10. 10. Insight #7 “Fear is an unbelievable motivator, but it also makes people freeze in their tracks. Once you understand it, fear becomes something you can tap into. Fear comes from the understanding that you can die. It usually makes me make really good decisions and gives me power.” - Laird Hamilton on fear
  11. 11. Insight #8 On the path to mastery, be cautious not to overlook the notion that nearly every external marker of success is a false horizon, for to truly stop settling for ‘good enough’, you must commit to becoming a lifetime learner.
  12. 12. Insight #9 No quest to become unmistakable will be devoid of time in the impact zone (your darkest hour) simply because the pursuit of any significant feat invites significant challenges.
  13. 13. Insight #10 “True nobility isn’t being better than your fellow man, it’s being better than your former self.” - Stephen King on Identity
