BE UNCOMMON by Izuchukwu Okafor

Among many things, being uncommon means
Looking at the same things everyone else sees and thinking something different
Seeking adventure over comfort and convenience
Testing common assumptions
Nurturing relentless curiosity
Accepting responsibility
Understanding that reality is shaped by our perception of it
Keeping your word
Constantly learning
Noticing patterns
Learning from losses
Eating right
Exiting your comfort zone regularly
Understanding that direction trumps distance
Seeking the unknown
Being resourceful
Understanding that failure is not trying
Creating opportunity, not waiting for it
Looking for value
Adding value
Asking, “Why?”
Asking, “Why not?”
Cultivating creativity
Seeking input from your opposites
Knowing what you stand for and what you don’t. And then taking the stand
Letting go of the past to shape the future
Candidly and regularly assessing your actions and results
Knowing the difference between being busy and being productive
Taking one additional step when others don’t
Understanding that motivation is temporary, but purpose is enduring
Asking for support
Understanding that the best defense is often listening
Appreciating victories, even the small ones
Resisting the urge to do what is easy over what is right
Choosing your battles
Working smart trumps working hard (But still being prepared to bust your ass)
Understanding that character is your best marketing
Sharing your time with those you care about
Embracing fear as a companion, not an enemy
Caring for your body, mind, and spirit (yes, all three)
Understanding that failure is a temporary event, not a trait
Saving and giving money
Traveling often
Being yourself
Beginning with the end in mind
Thinking locally and globally
Being immersed in the present, but vested in the future
Giving spontaneous compliments and consistent support
Creating something that outlives you
Being able to laugh at yourself, before passing judgment
Understanding that your beliefs precede our actions
Listening to feedback, but following your intuition
Caring (so much meaning in one word)
And most importantly… taking action towards the things that matter most to you
Be uncommon,
