11. Let the critics talk while they act
The critics will always talk.
Spiritual entrepreneurs know this.
They don’t get weighed down by critics who criticize what others do and do little themselves.
How do you respond to the critics?
Just act while the critics talk. You’ll accomplish something. They won’t.
12. Break rules
Quite obviously, you should never break biblical rules. And the great spiritual entrepreneurs never do. Their character is solid.
But you’re going to absolutely need to break some human rules if you’re going to disrupt the status quo.
Innovation always breaks rules. Why?
Because innovation never asks for permission. It just innovates.
