A Bunch Of Deckheads. I got to admit I was struggling to come up with an observation for this post as I’ve been consuming an inhuman amount of shit by way of biz dev throughout the course of the week. It’s not some fad or New Year resolution, fuck that shit. I resolve to improve myself every single day.
Prior to going bed this morning I was listening to The Alex Rodriguez and Big Cat Interview with Kobe Byrant. Very insightful.
Kobe is a mentor of mine. He has one of the most celebrated work ethics in the history of sports along side Michael Jordan, Michael Phelps, Floyd Mayweather and Cristiano Ronaldo too name a few.
At the core of who he, is the demand’s he places upon himself. He holds himself to a standard that exceeds the expectation of others. It really is that simple. Fuck other people expectations or what we believe we should be afforded. Personally, I’m just going after it.
It is that resolve that has afforded me the opportunity to take a passion for music which I was able to share with others from setting up a promotion, to DJ’ing, which enabled me to exit a 9 – 5 , to facilitating opportunities you all. You know how fucking humbling yet inspiring that is?
So while I admit I’ve became frustrated with the lack of collective effort from some of you all. The false dawns I’ve experienced from running this imprint. The extortion attempts from managers. The lack of accountability on the part of venues. Failed promotions. Ideas that didn’t scale. I remain unfucking deterred.
Adversity is fuel for me; because when it’s all said and done I want to be able to look back on my life and say through it all, look what I’ve done. You fucking G! Not for anyone else. Just me. My innate wealth. My personal credibility.
So I guess what I’m saying is…..raise your standards, in work and more importantly in life.
Some housekeeping. Please be advise that if I’ve confirmed a booking with you in the week and you’ve not heard from me on the designated day. Please call or text to confirm. I’ve been fucking up on that front of late. So help me to help you.
I will be reverting on a date for the Bunch Of Deckheads Xmas party soon.
So all that remains to be said is be fucking remarkable my esteemed colleagues.
Oh! One more thing. Look what Nigel aka Mr Dex made.
The ultimate resource is resourcefulness.
