Creativity is not innate, a muse you’re born with or an ability that comes because you support the right social causes. It is instead most often the result of hard work and risk. Simple persistence quite often produces creative results. Giving up offers none. Persisting when the development of creative solutions is grindingly difficult brings a flavor to the victory that will never be tasted by those who settle. Here are a few more reasons to persist:

What is the difference between courage and stupidity in taking your next step as an entrepreneur? True confession, I have shiny thing disease … you know, always thinking that if I can just afford that tech, gadget, thingy, device, web enabled flange gasket or course of knowledge then ALL will be copacetic and money will effortlessly flow through my business. Granted, if you stay stupid forever, refuse education and don’t ever invest in training your life isn’t likely to change. But how do you figure out actual need vs good use of what you already have?

Help me out here. Am I seeing more than the usual amount of “bash anyone who has the desire to make money” or “bash anyone who’s decided to own something you don’t” or not? Maybe its just me (a small business owner/solopreneur) but there seems to be a concerted effort to label business and possessions as evil. It’s rather like the illustration above. Somehow we’ve decided a priori that money (a means of holding the results of talent, time and effort) is at best amoral, if not immoral. I disagree. A screwdriver is good. It is inherently incapable of evil and it enables anyone who picks it up to do more than they could do with their fingers alone.
