I See's Daily Game. It's a production of iHeartRadio. What's
Up Sides Team, You're listening to the Daily Game, the
compilation of motivational quotes I've collected over the years that
I've found inspiring and helped me through the game of life. Today,
I'm going to drop some knowledge from Apple co founder

Steve Jobs. Innovation distinguishes between leader and follower. An innovator
is the person that's going to think up the new things.
They're going to be the ones that are going to
be coming with new ideas. The follower is going to
wait on the idea, then they're going to implement and
build out on that idea. But the leader is the

creative one. They're the one that's always thinking of different ways,
different ideas. And I know that as far as in
my business. You know, becoming a leader, you know unwillingly,
you know, you're just picked. Everybody looks at you like,
so what are we going to do next? That's your job.
I mean, even if you have a group of friends,
there's always one that's like, Okay, I've got the idea

for the night. I know what we're going to do,
how we're going to do this? And if something goes wrong,
everyone looks at them. Now, some people try to implement
themselves as leaders and they're not leaders. You know, They're like,
I'm in charge, and they are usually fuck ups. You know.
Usually a leader is voted by the group. It's like
you're the best at You've been chosen, and we're willing

to follow your lead. But what jobs is saying that
the innovator will have to be the leader, the one
that's going to come up with the new ideas. So
now you have to ask yourself, are you an innovator?
Are you a leader? Or are you a follower? Now
I know how to play both positions. There's power in
both positions. There's power and riding shotgun a person that

always has to be the leader. You know. They say
that some people will sink the ship just because they
can't steer it, you know. So you have to understand
what position you're in. So say, for instance, when I
do my music, I'm the leader. I'm in charge of
body count. I'm the guy that's making the set lists.
I'm making all the calls out there on the road.

When I do law and order, I'm the follower. I
show up, they tell me where I what I should say,
what I where, what I do. And I actually enjoy
being a follower because, like I say, acting is the
one job where it's someone else's job to tell you
what to do. So I can just walk in there
and be like, so, what's up for today? They go

where this stand here, here's some tape on the ground,
stand here, And I enjoy that because I don't have
to use my leadership ability. I can just relax. I
can just be an employee, so to speak. They say,
the head that where's the crown sleeps the heaviest, and
it's true. So a lot of people out there is like,
I want to be in charge. I want to run

my own business. I want to do that may not
be the smartest thing in the world. You know, having
a great leader and being able to work under them
can be the best occupation in the world if you
have correct leadership and you understand your job is important.
So get away from that. I have friends that are like, well,

if I'm not the boss, I don't want to be.
I gotta be the boss. I gotta be you know,
fuck that, I just need to get paid. I don't
I don't have to fucking be the boss. Dick Wolf
is my boss, and I've lived a great life. I'm boss.
I'm the boss in other aspects of my life, but

it's not essential. So Apple co founder Steve Job says,
innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. I get it.
The innovator must be the leader. The follower has to
carry out the job. But I'm here to say there's
nothing wrong with being a follower if you have good leader.

This has been another ice cold fact from me. Iced team.
Listening again tomorrow when I drop some wisdom on your
ass till then, stay safe, stay smart, and stay knowing
that innovation can be one of the predictors of greatness.
