Host and founder of The
Unmistakable Creative podcast
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.
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.”
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.
In the mind of the Unmistakable Creative,
Imitation is not the greatest form of flattery...
“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
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.
“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
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.
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.
“True nobility isn’t being better than your fellow
man, it’s being better than your former self.”
- Stephen King on Identity
