No Excuses

No Excuses

I don’t know about you, but even as I make continuous progress toward actualizing my goals, I still find myself falling into this trap from time to time. For me it’s often letting the perfect be the enemy of the good. Then it becomes an excuse to not move forward, because I have to fix some detail.
Today I’m focusing on eliminating those little imperfections that lead to excuses of not being able to move to the next level because some detail is a little out of focus or not quite polished enough. Today we’re fixing the f*cking details already! No more excuses.
So I’m rolling up my sleeves, breaking it down to take action. Time to make it good enough to not be a hindrance to the next steps. Done is better than perfect. But good enough so needs to happen, so let’s get it done. AMIRIGHT?
What’s holding you back right now, and more importantly, what are going to do about it?

Graceful Exit

Graceful Exit

“Few men of action have been able to make a graceful exit at the appropriate time.” Malcolm Muggeridge

Today is my last day at Fastsigns. When one door closes, another door opens. I’ve decided it’s time for moving on to pursue new ventures and focusing on John Hornsby Creative full time.

He’s a picture I drew of Obama leaving the white house for the last time. And no I’m not comparing myself to him nor fastsigns to the White House.

I’m John Hornsby and I approve of this message.

Cooking up some new business cards in the creative kitchen. Always fun playing with the different ways to mix up pieces of the brand like fine ingredients in a recipe.
