Either Reinvent Yourself, Or Don’t. It’s That Simple.

I have spent a few years and written more than a few pages talking with you about reinvention. It’s something I like to talk about, because it’s something we humans do every day of our lives.

I wrote a little book about my experience with it. I’ve had bloggy things floating around the Internet for years. You may read some of it, and I appreciate it.

I once came across an article from bestselling author James Altucher on the art and science of reinvention. I read it, I fell off my chair, then told myself I have GOT to share this. 

What if my last partner screwed me and I’m still suing him?

Stop litigating and never think about him again. Half the problem was you, not him.

What if I get depressed?

Sit in silence for one hour a day. You need to get back to your core.

If you think this sounds stupid then don’t do it. Stay depressed.

These are but two of James Altucher’s killer suggestions on how to reinvent yourself. This article is that good. Really good. Very honest. Totally great.

Read this, print this, use this, remember this, and appreciate this.

I’ve always been too gentle in my words, prodding you to take charge of this life you’ve been given.

Altucher has no such burden. So now I will steal his attitude and pass it along.

Either reinvent, or don’t.

Make excuses, or don’t.

Give a crap, or don’t.

Try, or don’t.

But you really should stop whining if you do nothing, then discover nothing happens when you do nothing. If you’re that person, you’re not so much annoying as sad.

That felt good. Okay, now read this gem from the mid-90s. It still stands up. You’re welcome.

Need a kick in the butt to get off your butt and get going?

Reach out to John, if you’re truly ready.
