Early in my book
there’s a chapter called
that period in life
when you’re uncertain about
what’s next, where you’re heading,
or how to handle a current situation.
This past Thursday at MIT,
I delivered a keynote to 75 entrepreneurs
who are members of
a group called “Gathering of Titans.”
As successful as everyone in the room is
(having founded $10-100 million dollar companies),
the topic of THE FOG had great resonance.
The truth is, successful people
face not knowing a lot.
Because the very nature of success
requires heading into new territory
again and again, finding yourself in situations
you’ve never seen before,
often feeling overwhelmed
and at a loss.
So if you’re in THE FOG,
consider it part of the path to success.
You’ve made a move, taken a stand,
or left a comfort zone.
You’re in a new landscape,
one that’s unfamiliar.
This takes courage.
So now what?
Here’s a 33 second clip from Thursday’s keynote,
filmed by someone in the audience
to offer a bit of insight.
I hope it helps.
Risk Forward & Rock On,
P.S. In the video, the first words “The Fog” are cut off…

Oh, and here’s a photo from backstage, just before I went on.
