I noted yesterday that the more you know, the more original you can be and in being original, with a bit of intuition, you can create the next big thing.
(As I was writing this, a commercial came on for the new galaxy SIII and the final words on the screen were “The Next Big Thing Is Here”.)
What’s after that then? What are your plans now that you made the next big thing? So you made an awesome book-page-open-holder or you found a way to connect the photos taken from one person’s phone with all the other friends immediately after taking it. Now what?
You have two options.
1. You can cash out and do your best to make the money last.
2. You can use the cash from your creation to start working on the next big thing.
One decade ago choosing number one was viable. Not only would you make a lot of money from creating the next big thing, but it would be a long time before the next big thing trumped yours and cut your cash flow.
But in a world that people are making something bigger and better than the person next to them every day, option one just isn’t an option anymore.
That leaves option two. And option two takes dedication, creativity and more hard work as you invent more of the next big things. Which is perfect not just for your tribe, but for your passion, for your income, for your life and the world we live in.
This idea, this concept, this law that guides what is successful couldn’t be a better one for us. It ignores those who only create something that is cheap, that is an imitation, that is only meant to fulfill option one and that has no art in it.
Stay Positive & Hallelujah
