Small versus Big


“Come with your idea…

Leave with a vision.” - Jared Yellin


Call me crazy, but I believe everyone has a vision disguised as an idea, but because they are too afraid to be bold with their idea, it never becomes the vision it’s meant to be.


Woahhh!


This is a heavy statement because what I am actually saying is that most people are letting themselves, their families, and ultimately the world down.


They are choosing “safety” versus destiny…

They are selecting “conservative” versus audacious…

They are thinking “small” versus big...


What if everyone on planet earth was meant to live their potential…

What if we were supposed to die with no ideas left…

What if we were meant to execute immediately when an opportunity presented itself…


WHY is this not happening already?!


I have had countless people tell me in life to slow down…

I have had countless people tell me to chill out…

I have had countless people tell me to take it easy…


And do you know what I have to say to these countless people…


I CAN’T

I WON’T

HERE WE GO!


This Is What BIG EXECUTING Looks Like...


Before I share what it looks like to EXECUTE BIG (which is the step immediately after THINKING BIG) in the life of Jared Yellin, I want to preface all of this by stating…


I am WEIRD with time…


Like fanatical about it actually…


24/7/365 is scheduled because when sleep is scheduled it gets done, when projects are scheduled they get done, and when workouts are scheduled they get done!


But my weirdness with time directly correlates with my insanity on EXECUTING BIG…


The moment an idea enters my mind, I find some way to bring at least some part of it to life.


For example…


We recently hired the most wonderful Director of Marketing and Creative Catalyst for CILA Labs, Tiffany S., and within 30-days of her joining, this is our EXECUTE BIG…

  • Fully updated website

  • Rebranded website for our Strategic Advisor, Dr. Ben Lerner

  • Daily blogging rhythm

  • 2 new podcasts

  • 2 online membership platforms

  • Video Series

  • CILA Labs’s first book

  • Weekly newsletter x2

  • Multiple Facebook Groups

  • Plan for Press

  • Insane social media strategy

  • 3 Virtual Summits

  • AND all of the energy and ideas and strategy needed for 10+ Portfolio Companies that have said YES to partnering with CILA Labs over the past 4-5 months.

What CILA Labs does in a week is what normal people and businesses do in a year.


And you might be thinking…


WOW, that sounds like a ton of work.


But do you know what sounds like a TON of work to me?!?!


THINKING SMALL!


Get ready for an insane run on sentence...

When you allow yourself to THINK BIG and EXECUTE BIG you are removing all friction and when friction is NOT present, it enables you to hit the point of momentum faster, and momentum builds on momentum WHICH IS MUCH easier than creating impediments to thinking BIG, which means you are thinking SMALL, which means you won’t hit momentum, which means you will need to slog it out, which means...thinking SMALL is a TON of work!


Thinking Small Is Just So Darn Exhausting...


I had an ideation session the other day for a potential CILA Labs partner and on three occasions I asked the person to stop thinking small…


By the third time he “GOT IT,” but the first two left him offended…


Here’s what I learned over the years about thinking small…


A - It’s freaking exhausting because more energy is required to limit your vision.

B - It’s not exciting by any means because the smaller you think the more realistic you become.

C - It’s not worthy of your time because thinking small is “what is” whereas thinking without limits is “what will be”.

D - It’s your moral responsibility and your life's purpose to think without any restrictions of what you intend to do during your time on earth.


I want to make sure this is crystallized for you…


THINKING without limits has nothing to do with entrepreneurship…

THINKING without limits has nothing to do with acquiring material items…

THINKING without limits does not make you a dreamer or a seeker or abstract…


Here’s what THINKING without limits actually means…


You are a problem solver…

You won’t settle for the status quo…

You won’t follow the herd mentality and instead you will lead the herd…

You will innovate as a parent, friend, someone who wants to get healthy, spouse or partner, and for yourself.


From my opinion…


There is only ONE way to think…


And it’s without restrictions…


Without the story of “I’m too fat, I’m too slow, I’m too dumb, I won’t amount to anything…”


THINKING without limits will give you the chills…

THINKING without limits will freak you out…

THINKING without limits will keep you up AND put you into a deep sleep…


THINKING without limits is your right, duty, and responsibility…


Here’s a Challenge for You…


Find ONE area of your life that is NOT where you want it to be RIGHT NOW and THINK without limits and EXECUTE with insane tenacity and speed!


Don’t do this for me - but do this for you.


Prove to yourself that THINKING BIG and EXECUTING BIG is actually easier than THINKING SMALL and EXECUTING SMALL because you will hit your momentum point.


And your THINK and EXECUTE big can be in any domain…

  • Relationship

  • Health

  • Spirituality

  • Geographics

  • Quality of Life

  • Intimacy

  • Entrepreneurship

  • Travel

  • Etc.

Just pick one area that is not where you want it to ultimately be and just EXECUTE - commit to the first idea that comes to mind and then continue to execute from that point over and over because your velocity will begin to carry you once your body and mind is accustomed to immediate BIG action!


I know you got this and I am excited for what you will produce...


Live with Intention,
