There are things you know, things you don’t know, and things you don’t know that you don’t know.
Likewise, there are tools you need, tools you don’t need, and tools you’d never imagine in your wildest dreams that are useful as shit.
The third category fascinates me. It’s like every time a new digital product is released, I get a feeling of “damn… how did I not think of this already?”
The answer? Because I didn’t want to think about it.
I didn’t want to spend time brainstorming ideas to come up with what no one had ever thought of. Instead, I wanted to dwell on the crap I created last month.
We need to take a closer look at things and find room for improvement. We need to find (and close) gaps that don’t belong.
This is what produces the “why” which is all you need to make something happen.
I talk myself out of 99% of my ideas because I don’t know the “how.” Seriously, though, who cares about how something will get done when you know why it needs to be done and it’s important enough to do?

Bold people push the world forward. In certain arenas, they also make the most money. If you’re reading this post, you’re probably into making money.
Tap into that third category by actively looking for new ways to gain leverage and solve problems. There’s always more to be done whether you know it or not.
