What if strangers never stared at you again? What if glittery greeting cards cleaned your house? What if we turned ocean pollution into fertilizer? What if you had a molasses covered groin? What if seals copulated without destroying beaches?
In this episode of Steal Scott’s Ideas, Brittany, Conrad & Kate gather in Brooklyn for some execution in public.

Execution Lesson 108: Creating the company that houses your own art.
We get work when we decide to work whether we are working or not.
That’s how working works. It’s not whether we are good, although talent certainly helps, it’s whether we are moving. Because while opportunity is attracted to talent, it’s also mesmerized by momentum. And the best entrepreneurs have both.
Instead of patiently suckling the pink teat of institutional permission, they hire themselves and get to work. Whether or not their work is even going to work.
Roark, the mythological architect who refused to compromise with an architectural establishment unwilling to accept innovation, once said that the question is not who’s going to let us, but who’s going to stop us?
Nobody, that’s who. Not a goddamn person.
It’s actually quite surprising the first time we taste this flavor of freedom. We start working and realize, oh damn, not only are people not stopping me, they’re actually supporting me. That’s momentum. It works.
Lesson learned, new work opportunities find us through the attraction of working, not the arrogance of waiting. If you are hoping to get more work, just remember this.
Not working is not working.
It’s not enough to making work, we also have to create the opportunity to make it.
Master than, and you will soon learn that you are much freer than you allow yourself to imagine.
How could you build the house where your freedom resides?
