The Deliberate Creator's Code
So I just finished reading Seth Godin’s post today about the first rule of doing work that matters. (It’s “show up.”)
(Try not to hold his “work hard” message against him – the rest of his stuff is valuable.)
Anyway, the other day I caught one of Dexter’s rules of successful work as a serial killer: 1) don’t get caught.
(I think the other two are “fit in” and “never kill the innocent.” But I could be wrong – I’m rusty on Dexter wisdom.)
In Public Enemies, Johnny Depp as John Dillinger shares these three rules: 1) Don’t work with people you don’t know, 2) Never work with people who are desperate and 3) Stay away from women.
Frank Martin (aka the Transporter) also has a few rules he lives by:
- Never change the deal.
- No names.
- Never open the package.
- Never make a promise you can’t keep.
Maybe it’s partly because the Transporter is super cool (not to mention smokin’ hot), but I admit, it’s making me want a set of rules to live by.
Since my whole life is oriented around deliberate creation, I wondered what would the code of a deliberate creator be?
Pretty sure none of the rules mentioned above would translate to the life of a powerful manifester, so I thought I’d ask you …
… if Deliberate Creators had a code to live by, what would it be?
Maybe we each have our own code, just like different transporters and serial killers and thought leaders do. But maybe there’s consensus, too.
What do you think? Got any rules that serve your law of attraction work – or just life in general – really well?
I’d love to hear if so as I’m playing with putting together mine now … and I’ll share the most agreed on favorites back here in the post.
Update: so far our rules list is seeing these repeats in the comments:
- feel good (relax/get happy/laugh)
- follow your bliss (honor your guidance/do it your way/you make the rules)
- focus on the party (dial in on appreciation)
- feelings matter more than results/actions
