The really scary thing no one tells you about life and your career is that you never arrive. Nope. Of course if you “settle,” then you end up a vegetable: a carrot growing in some cubicle farm somewhere. You punch a clock, collect your paycheck, kiss the boss’ behind, keep your mouth shut until you get laid off and have to start the whole process over again. Joy.

“But I’m going to create a kick-ass piece of software or an app for the freaking iPhone, sell it and retire!” Yeah. You and how many other teenagers? The truth? Even if you create that software, build the best mousetrap or even win the freaking lotter:  ONE thing never changes. You’re only as good as the last best thing you did. If you aren’t staying hungry, unsatisfied, out there looking, digging, and hustling, you’re dead.

‘Cause the guy who is hungry, really hungry, already has YOU in his sights. And he’s closing fast, babycakes. Like a ZOMBIE. He’s on your ass. And it is grass.

If you’re not hungry, not looking for more, better, different, then you’re cooked. ‘Cause the rest of the world is doing just that. Yeah, “Do it Now” is a lesson. Do it Now or it won’t get done and you sure won’t win. But if you just “Do it Now,” like “just make a decision,” or “get married,” or “start a new career” or whatever it is…that’s JUST the first step.

It’s STAYING HUNGRY that makes you keep doing it. And every step of the way – yeah, be thankful. Some days, like the days you get to eat, the days you break even…heck, especially the days you make a profit or pull ahead:  Thank EVERYBODY! No one gets anywhere without gratitude dude.

So STAYING HUNGRY is the meta-concept. And “Do it Now” and “Be Thankful” fall under that. Those two lessons are important. Staying hungry is CRITICAL.

We think Stay Hungry is the most powerful pick for Johnny Bunko’s Lesson Seven. If you think so too, please click here and add your vote.

Who the hell is Johnny Bunko?

Johnny BunkoIn the book, Johnny Bunko, Johnny learns the six career lessons no one ever told him. Too bad he didn’t grow up next door to Harry Potter, or a Chinese Restaurant. But hey, better late than never. The six simple strategies to success?

1.  There is no plan.
2.  Think strengths, not weaknesses.
3.  It’s not about you.
4.  Persistence trumps talent.
5.  Make excellent mistakes.
6.  Leave an imprint.

But what about Lesson Seven?

Lesson Seven, which we won’t find out about until Daniel Pink reveals the most popular answer of his three- question final competition, will be either, (A) Do it Now, (B) Be thankful or (C) Stay Hungry. I’m opting for Stay Hungry of course because that’s not only MY answer, but what I believe is the BEST answer to the “career question”…and this blog is about why. To read the latest posts – click on “Archives.”

Stay Hungry

If I win the contest, an all-expense paid trip to the 2009 Global TED conference, I’ll blog about that. Cool beans. Insider stuff, video (as much as they’ll let me take!) and whatever. If I lose (sigh) then this blog will still be called “Lesson Seven,” only it’ll be about how to Stay Hungry and how to get successful doing whatever it is you’re doing. Deal? You win either way.
