Riding a Bicycle Downhill Doesn’t Mean Your Legs Are Strong

Recessions force us to decide if we’re a necessity.

That’s a painful conversation to have.

Nobody enjoys
entertaining the prospect of irrelevancy.

But when the shit hits the economic fan, we owe it to
ourselves – and to our enterprise – to honestly assess the value we provide. To
courageously listen if the intersection of our personal obsession and the
marketplace need is worth paying money for.

What sucks is, we might realize that our past prosperity was
nothing more than riding a bicycle downhill under the assumption that our legs are
strong.

And if that’s the case, we may be forced to change lanes or,
worse yet, get off the road.

On the other hand, we might use the recession to renew our
resourcefulness. To reignite our creativity. And to give our business a much
needed kick in the pants.

Point being, we have a choice.

And as long as we’re honest with ourselves, it will be the
right one.

Stupid economy.

LET ME ASK YA THIS…

How has the economy changed the way you work?

Are You a One Trick Pony?

Art is an ongoing process of
unsilenting ourselves.

If we want to make our name dear to
history and give the future something to respect, we have to show the world our
accumulated record, not just bits and pieces.

Everyone we meet needs to know
everything we’ve done. And if they don’t, it’s our job to demonstrate the firepower of our
creative arsenal. To help them
taste the full scope of our artistic power.

When people ask me if I’m the guy who wrote the book on wearing
nametags, I tell them I’m the guy who wrote a dozen books on wearing nametags.
Not because I’m an arrogant jerk who needs to prove himself, but because I’m a
working artist who needs to express himself.

As creators, it’s our responsibility make sure the people
who know us, know the depth of our creation.

Without that reminder, without that timeline of credibility,
we’re just another one-trick pony, winking in the dark.

LET ME ASK YA THIS…

Do people know what you’ve done?

Before I wrote books, I wrote songs.

After twenty years of burying my music, I finally got the guts to bare it publicly.

Go behind the scenes (er, behind the nametag) and download all four of my albums on ITunes.

We Are Defined By What We Decline

People buy what we aren’t.

If having a brand means taking a stand, then our job is to
make it abundantly clear to the marketplace what we are the antithesis of. Who
we aren’t, what we don’t want, what we won’t do and what we refuse to stand
for.

This boundary, this stake in the ground, is the sweetest
freedom available.

It makes our brand simpler by reducing the burden of choice. It gives our brand room to maneuver within the vicinity of
our values. It helps our brand focus on the small corner of the world
we’ve chosen to serve.

When we choose our enemy, when we become the antichrist to
something, we leave no doubt in people’s minds what we stand for. We are
defined by what we decline.

Franklin Covey, the leading provider of time management
materials and corporate assessments, operates a few dozen stores nationwide.
But if you stop by the mall on a Sunday, you’ll notice the following sign on
their door:

“Closed Sundays to
allow employees time for family and worship.”

Even on the second busiest shopping day of the week, they
refuse to take people’s money. And as a result, they’ve lost millions of
dollars each year for the past two decades.

All because they put their beliefs on the line. They know
who they aren’t.

And they’re not afraid to shout it from the rooftops.

What happens when you wear a nametag all day, every day, for 4000+ days?

Strangers make fun of you, mostly.

Are You Afraid to Have an Imagination?

The last American author to win the Nobel Prize in
Literature was Toni Morrison, for her renowned novel, Beloved.

That was twenty years ago.

Since then, not a single winner has come from this country.

I just discovered this during an interview with Alexander
Nazaryan, a member of the New York Daily
News
editorial staff.

“American writers are encouraged to
write from their perspective, to write what they know. And because
of that, the vast majority of them are almost afraid of imagination. That, to
me, is frightening, because many of our great works are founded on this immense
leap of faith.

Something clicked that day. His comment crushed me like a
ton of books, and I knew that I had to make a change in my creative life, for
better and for always. Otherwise I’d just be just another writer without an imagination.
A mechanic.

Since then, I’ve made tremendous strides in my work:

I starting using Contour, the story development
software, to build outlines for future screenplays, comic books and other epic
adventures.

I published The Nametag Manifesto, which reads like
utopian narrative, envisioning a future in which everyone wears nametags,
everywhere, forever.

I began The Scottany Soundtrack, a podcast with my
girlfriend, which chronicles our life adventures and serves as a playground for
human ridiculousness.

Best yet, each of these projects has kicked open creative doors
to other artistic worlds. Ones I never would have gotten in touch with had I
not reconnected with the purest, craziest and most essential parts of my creative
soul. From music to poetry to cooking to yoga, all areas of my life are richer
because of this decision to have an imagination.

And although I probably won’t win a Nobel Prize, I will win
a more meaningful, more colorful and more inspired life.

Sure beats being a mechanic.

History Yelds to Instinct, Not the Other Way Around

Having a history together isn’t reason enough to have a
future together.

For two people to thrive, there has to be more than just pile
of memories. We have to know, in our hearts, that there is a rightness to the
relationship.

That’s a key word, rightness. I remember at friend’s wedding about three years back, the mother of the groom toasted to the “rightness” of the
couple.

Sadly, I looked over at my date and saw nothing of the sort.

Plenty of history, not enough rightness.

Shortly thereafter, it ended. Abruptly. Hardest decision I’d
made in years. But few years later, my dad told me something I’ll never forget

History yields to
instinct, not the other way around.

It’s kind of like those public service announcements at the
subway station, “If you see something, say something.”

Except this time it’s more serious.

I might change the wording to, “If you feel something – or
in my case, if you feel nothing – say something.”

Otherwise you’re just winking in the dark.

LET ME ASK YA THIS… 

Are you depending on history or instinct?
