R.I.P. Stan Lee – 1922-20182 min read


Where would popular culture be without the great Stan Lee, creator of Marvel Comics?

As I kid, I used to love Thor and Spiderman Comics, and more than 50 years later I (and umpteen million others), are still watching Marvel Movies.

One thing about Stan is that he loved what he did. In any picture of him, he always had a smile on his face.

Do you love what you do?

Here are a few Stan Lee quotes to remind you how important that was to him:

“Most people say, “I can’t wait to retire so I can play golf,” or go yachting or whatever they do. Well, if I was playing golf, I would want that to finish so I could go and dream up a new TV show!”

“I don’t know where the hell I’ll be in five years. Maybe I’ll be producing movies maybe I’ll be on a corner selling apples. I don’t know, but I’m having a hell of a lot of fun.”

“I think whatever you do you should do what you most want to do and what you’re best at. Too many people don’t do what their heart’s desire is. They try to do something else ’cause they think it will be easy to get a job or make money. And if that happens then when you’re doing it you feel like you’re working. But if you do what you really want to do you feel like you’re playing and it’s easier for you to do.”

Ever notice that the things we enjoy the most tend to be things created by people who love what they do?

Are you doing that in your business? Are you loving it so much that people are loving what you’re offering?

And if not, what do you need to change so that happens?

This is not a trivial thing.

It’s your life. And you only have one.

Thanks, for the inspiration, Stan.

“You know, my motto is ‘Excelsior.’ That’s an old word that means ‘upward and onward to greater glory.’ It’s on the seal of the state of New York. Keep moving forward, and if it’s time to go, it’s time. Nothing lasts forever.” – Stan Lee

Cheers, Robert
