I’m not going to make it a habit to use KartPulse as my own promotion tool to yank my own stick, but I’m sharing this post for two reasons.
#1 - James and Davin have a saying about the general karting community regarding ideas and "what you should do to make it a better sport. They can correct me, but it is along the lines of “Just Do A Thing”. Quit talking, quit pontificating, quit talking, and quit talking. Just do one thing to help make it a better community. I’m an ideas guy. I’m a “I am GOING to do”, I WANT to do, I’m Thinking About guy. That is me.
One of my favorite listens is Gary Vaynerchuck or Gary V. One of his podcasts struck me at the soul. He basically said you, as in me, is not unique. You are not a super genius because you have an idea. You are not Jeff Bezos or Steve Jobs because of an idea. Everyone has an idea. Some have more than others. Some are good, some are bad, but most of us have an idea.
Bezos and Jobs executed on an idea. That is their difference. They did a thing. So with Davin and James in my ear about doing a thing, and Gary Vee saying your ideas are shit if you don’t take action or execute, I put my ideas into motion. So to KP and GV, Thank you!
#2 - I’m sharing my recent post because James and I have chatted for years in the background. We seem like minded in the perception of what we want to see in our (all of us) community.
Today I experienced an event that was much needed in my focus for karting as well as just a breath of fresh air.
So, I am doing a thing!
