At a recent Leadercast event, Andy Stanley spoke about bravery and encouraged everyone to concentrate on the “WOW” of every idea, not the “HOW”.
Always asking “HOW” saps the energy from new ideas and grounds it in the impossible before it’s even born.
Give it a chance. Don’t think “How will I ever do that?” … rather …
“Wow! That’s a cool idea. Let’s see if we can find a way to do that!”
Mark Twain said it well. Let’s see if we can DO IT well.

On The Back of an Envelope
It’s exciting, isn’t it, when we stumble across crumpled notes that have been lodged in our wallet for years … to discover timeless gems that we may have forgotten?
John Wooden, the famed UCLA basketball coach, always carried a crumpled note which bore the words written by his father on Wooden’s high school graduation:
“Be true to yourself. Make each day a masterpiece. Help others. Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible. Make friendship a fine art. Build a shelter against a rainy day. Pray for guidance, count and give thanks for your blessings every day.”
Simple. Clear. Unequivocal.
