To Amplifi isn’t simply having awareness, knowing your strengths and weaknesses. It isn’t just appreciation, valuing your strengths and weaknesses. In “Pink Goldfish 2.0” David Rendall and I share how amplifying is the process of getting weirder by getting weaker.
There are two ways to AMPLIFI: maximizing and minimizing.
1. Maximizing is spending MORE time, energy, and resources on what makes us imperfect.
2. Minimizing is spending LESS time, energy, and resources conforming to traditional models of success.
