If It Ain’t Broke
Still Fix It

Why life is about more than surprise, fear, ruthless efficiency, and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.


If you haven’t changed too much over the course of your life and things are OK, things are NOT okay. If you don’t encourage yourself to change, and make it happen you’ll have a hard time changing when you need to.

“If everything seems under control you’re not going fast enough.” — M. Andretti
Life is a big Number 2 waiting to happen. Be Number 1.
Push.
Change gear.
Accelerate.

“Fast enough” doesn’t mean speed up your pace to finish more. It means Finish More. It means Do More. It means not just Having Something To Do, but Doing It.

Without creating, creativity is a fart in the wind.
You heard it, but it’s gone.

A very smart young woman once told me if you look back in 12 months and realize nothing has changed in that year, you’ve stopped living.

Once you’re out of the pits — whether your time was good or bad, you should be moving faster.

Barring some engine malfunction that leads to a nasty fiery death.

Life is about winning and product placement. And girls. Life is about winning, product replacement, girls, and ruthless efficiency.

Life’s not about trying — it’s about winning. I thought this photo made it pretty obvious. If you think you’ve got to try to win, and try to change you’re thinking about it all wrong. Try invites failure.

Do or do not. There is no try.
