Throughout Bill’s career, he was so afraid to mess up that he played a lot of things safe. He believes this is true for a lot of corporate leaders out there who don’t want to be the sole catalyst for everything falling apart. The downsides to playing it safe, though, is that you end up being so boring as a person because you’re afraid to offend someone. To top it off, you end up unable to engage or excite people while playing it safe.
The truth is, everyone has these amazing stories within them, but they just don’t know how to tell it in an art form. It’s either too long or some of the boring bits get added in. When you refine your funny bone, you can tell the simplest life story and make it engaging and funny for anyone to hear (and not get offended by).
