Htown Sneaker Summit

Its Htown Sneaker Summit is this Sunday, July 31st. We are back at the Toyota Center! So you know we will be there in full effect. And as usual Chattaboxes for everyone. If you don't know about it, in a nutshell, the H-Town Sneaker Summit is the largest and longest running event of its kind in the entire Southwest where Sneaker Enthusiasts from all walks of life gather to discuss sneakers & fashion in a huge party atmosphere! I hope that sums it up. If you dont know check it out here.

Word Play

“Creative” is one of those annoying words that means little, simply because it means so many different things to different people. I make no claim to have a better definition of “creative” than anyone else.

The best working definition of creative I have is “When work and play become the same thing”.
When that happens, you’re in flow. When you’re in flow, things are created.

Perhaps there are better definitions of “creative” out there. Does it matter? Not really.

What matters is that you find your own definition.

You don’t need mine. I don’t need yours.

It starts with an idea!!

At the last event that we attended, I came to realization that a lot of people are motivated to pursue their passion but they always have a "BUT." Then they go on to give me all the excuses in the world for why they cant start right now.

Most of the conversation boil down to us living our lives out of the fear of what other people think of us. Or waiting for someone to give us a permission slip that tells us it's OK to start.

Your ideals and value are your own, and no one could or should ever try to tell you what to do. Some of the most important ideas in life may seem quite unrealistic, but what would you rather do -- live like everyone else?

One of my goals with the Grits blog is to help you challenge the status quo, live life on your own terms, and change the world.

Currently, I'm running with the thought that, an idea is not something you HAVE, an idea is something you DO.

Ideas are cool, but without any action to follow, they’re useless. Ideas don’t exist in a vacuum.

Nobody reading this, including me, wants to spend their entire life, sitting on their desk, thinking big thoughts but actually doing nothing. Some of the most important ideas in our life may seem unrealistic, but what would you rather do -- live like everyone else?

I recently read The War of Art, which I loved, by the way. (#Cosign). In the book, Steven Pressfield said, "Everyone knows my tactics, but no one knows my strategy." I've noticed that if you hustle hard enough, people will eventually copy your tactics. And, it's inevitable, when something works people will copy. Too bad for them, because they’ll only see a fraction of your success. This is another reason why you don’t need to worry much about competition.

For the entrepreneur, it doesn't matter when people copy your tactics. "Why," you ask? Because, they do so without understanding the clear strategy.

Once you have a clear strategy, then you can go back to some of the tactics. Then, you can figure out what you’re doing and how to make it better, and you’ll see more of an impact. But, starting with the tactics is almost always a mistake.

So, when you take the time to create something remarkable, instead of just taking up space, focus on what's important for you and everything else will align itself properly.
