You are the only barrier to not being able to achieve greatness. Too many times in this business we talk ourselves out of achieving the best end product possible.
Why? We are scared. We are lazy. We don't care enough.
Don't be. Failure leads to successes. Learn from it. Have courage. It's ok to disagree. Have discourse around why. It will make your end product better.
We all have hard days. Ones where we might not be motivated to perform at our top level. Set small achievable goals and chip away at them. Find motivation in your team members and build together.
Care more. Spend your time doing quality work. Be a part of change if something isn't working right. Otherwise find something else to do, life is too short to be miserable anyways.
Become more efficient, effective and persuasive one day at a time. Change will happen. And don't forget to create great ideas everyday.
