I wanted to share my thoughts on taking
the traditional route to anything..... Let me know your thoughts because here
are my own.
There is a word that moves me when I hear it "Traditional".
Who says it has to be done a certain way? Why can't you make a new way instead
of following suite and playing it safe? Cliché is expected, it's a natural
reaction of the traditional mindset. The world we live in now, people have
retired from the notion of being innovative and raising the bar by just plainly
watching what works for others and following that lead. Born and bred in New
York City, that never will sit well with me because all I've seen in my
lifetime are non-traditional practices, trends being set and doors being kicked
in by being different. The attitude has always been paralleled with the follow
up of going against the grain, moving in a totally separate direction from what
I encourage you to be a leader of your
intentions and execution, aim to be exceptional in every facet of your quest.
I'm not saying that you can't be effective being traditional, it’s that we have
enough people doing it. We need to constantly challenge and raise the bar,
starting with being fearless and innovative. This will not only raise that bar
but also offspring into individuality and originality, and then we kill the clichés
and cheap remixes of what is being done, or has been done. So—go in a
different direction, take people on a different ride!
