    Make better work by becoming intolerant | Weaver & Loom [E127]

    Make better work by becoming intolerant | Weaver & Loom [E127]

    On this episode of Weaver and Loom we talk about doing better work by saying no to tolerance.
    That is right--intolerance is the name of the game, believe it or not it will lead to better work and a higher level of excellence. 
    Also--a short confession and case and point of the episode. This was the first episode I've recorded LIVE on instagram and youtube.
    It for sure wasn't the level of excellence I'm aiming for, but instead of waiting till I was "READY" I launched. Launched, made some mistakes, and gained some valuable insight of what I don't want to do next time, and how to continue to improve. 
    Through being INTOLERANT to "good enough" work, and not accepting this as the status quo--this show will be able to continue to grow into what it was designed to be. 
    To take more steps to live a focus life to achieve your dreams and fulfill your destiny–get my book Anchored the Discipline to Stop Drifting.
    Until next time…
    Be a change maker, weave your destiny, own the future.
