Everyone’s coming up to me: “Jeff, They stole your line!”
I know! It is still unclear if it was me or my friend who made it up, the line: Just Say Yes or Always Say Yes. The basic premise of the phrase is if you have an idea in your head, you should do it. That’s what it’s come down to. It used to be Say Yes to everything suggested to you, but that gets you into trouble and can compromise your integrity. So that’s what my phrase means.
This works great for talking to people and doing new things and facing your fear. BUT there is a new phrase….
Fuck It allows you to think less and just act. Thinking is what impedes progress too many times. Fuck It and just do it.
I got this phrase from Ice-T. A rapper who I’ve been listening to since I was 10 years old. Now I realize how smart a person he is. He is just a wise person and is able to explain sensibly everything he stands for. Check out some of his great songs and lyrics. He is a great story teller, reminds me of raps Bob Dylan.
So that’s the new phrase that pays. Jim Carrey is too late. Sorry, Jim!
