How Making a Mess can Make you Rich
Have you ever watched a child being born? It’s a beautiful magical process but also messy, very messy. This is true for any kind of birth. The birth of a new business idea, writing a book, getting a new career, or even learning a new skill. All are very messy prospects.
But many of us, including myself (thanks, Mom) have it in our heads that making a mess is a bad thing, a very bad thing, because someone will have to come along and clean it up. We actively avoid messes, stifle our growth, slow down our creations, and toss away perfectly good ideas because they are messy.
I will let you know a little secret. There are no great ideas that come out of a person’s head perfectly formed and functional; they are all a big mess. All great business ideas start out as something that really would never work, is impractical, and in some cases, is illegal. But then the person who got the idea works on it, shapes it, cuts off the rough edges, and the part that won’t work shifts the impractical parts into something that is practical and doable.
Personally, I changed my business name three times and my business model countless times as I figured out what worked and what … most assuredly … didn’t.
So, forget what your mom told you about making a mess being bad. Go buy some clay and crayons and prepare to make a big old mess. Who knows, that mess may be the start of a Fortune 500 company.
Know that you are loved no matter what.
