Takeaway #106 “Outside the box” with the Roots


You know a lot of leaders ain’t honest

And they can’t keep a promise

And I hate to speak about it but it’s all freakanomics


 The Roots    Bread & Butter

Takeaway 106:  Oh hell, BPM loves the lyric just because no one talks about Steve Levitt (freakanomics) in hiphop.  It’s time to Question Authority and the Status Quo.  Do you have your think-out-side-the-box hat on today?  Today, you are going to think about why you are being told something, not what you are told.  Do it for all information you receive today and see what it does to your perspective.  You are also going to dig behind the numbers and question the assumptions that your thesis and projections are built on. 

Takeaway #187 core value via #the roots and @questlove

Waiting, navigating the plot, without plans

In the cards, it’s hard to read as a clock with no hands…

Haters don’t know shit about me, they the ones that talk shit

…I was married to a state of mind and I divorced it

The Roots Clock with No Hands

Takeaway #187:  We all get trapped in the mindset of what others perceive about us as being the most relevant, rather than recognizing that what we consider most relevant to our success we should first perceive in others.  Core values and competencies should be determined first, and then the best plan will dictate itself, rather than forcing a plan without establishing core values first.
