Skill above self | A video

Skill above self | keynote address at the Outlier event in Manchester

Here's a video of speech I gave to some entrepreneurs at the Blaze 30 under 30 event. 

MAIN  TAKEOUT.

Here is the hard truth: the proper discovery and execution of your passion, your purpose or your ideas requires that you attain mastery of the skills necessary to accomplish that goal-  it requires that you put ideas of self, and passion and purpose second to the development of skill. purpose is iterative and passion can be mustered by will - but skill is developed over time, over constant flirtation with risk of mastery- it is developed only when it's development comes before all else.
