It's time for you. Can't just stops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and Greens. After encountering hundreds of high achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reach your goals. And now for today's question. What if I did the opposite? All of this question, mostly because, on the contrarian I like to just what if you told me this guy is blue, I'm going to tell you it's green, just to take the opposite opinion. I don't know, it's something I do. I'm working on it, but I love taking this approach of looking at things from the opposite so, when everybody else is zigging, how can you zag? How can... stand out? And I got this question from, I believe, from Tim Ferris of for our work week fame, and I believe that's exact act. The other frames it. When everybody else is digging, how to use ZAGG and it's about standing out. Now this isn't always the greatest approach. I'm very good at reinventing the wheel as well because of my contrary and approach. So I'm really good at like trying to reinvent everything that's already been invented before because I just want to do what everybody else isn't doing. And again working on that. I've gotten much better at that. I don't do that much anymore, but that's that's urge I have to fight. But many times this taking the opposite approach is a great approach, if for nothing else, just for generating new ideas, just for making sure that the idea you have is a good idea. You know, try to poke some holes in it, try to make sure it's valid idea by hey, is there an opposite approach I could take and what would happen if I did the opposite? What...

...if I did the opposite of this great idea? Would that also be true? But that also work? Or does that prove that my great idea is really the best idea? So I hope I like this whole idea of the opposite, of throwing in the contrarian view. See You tomorrow.
