Making creativity pay
After a long summer of business challenges, I'm getting back to my 'Friday night writes'.
I return to the writings of Tom Peters often. I spotted a quote from Tom back in May of this year and saved it. I saved it specifically because these things are rarely said about business and enterprise creation.
"Business: The Ultimate Creative Endeavor.
Business: The Ultimate Personal Development-Growth Experience.
Business: The Ultimate Transcendent Service Opportunity"
Creating new enterprises is an outlet many of us find powerfully awakening. It's striving without a net.
You have the choice as to how you design your enterprise. You can build it around cutting corners and screwing people, or you can build it around service, creativity and doing enterprise that makes a positive difference.
However, I don't want you to think we're just doing warm friendly self enterprise hugs here.
I want you start and build your own enterprises, and I want you to sustain those enterprises. I want you to make the world a better place. Over and over. Sustainable. I want you to keep your enterprise going.
You can't express your creativity and hope it pays.
You need to express your creativity and make it pay.
First, good solutions to problems, good plans, good numbers, and good processes and procedures.
Then you get to creativity, personal growth and best of all, a good night's sleep.
