This blog is a collection of simple wisdoms from influencers I admire.
In a globalised society, your ideas can attain greater scale than ever before possible.
Make a commitment to something larger than yourself. A great idea is about more than just you.
The best ideas don’t stay tied to their creators forever, they go out into the world and make a difference because people make them their own.
The choice to push all of us toward a universal normal merely to help sell more junk to the masses is both ineffectual and wrong. The opportunity of our time is to support the weird, to sell to the weird, and, if you wish, to become the weird.
Every organisation must prepare for the abandonment of everything it does.
Thinking is a rather prosaic, low-tech concept, often forgotten and easily underrated.
Dare to think!
Get excited about who you are, what you are, what you have and what can still be for you. Tune into your own wisdom. Your responses to the events of life are more important than the events themselves.
Live the life you have. Embrace the future. Set up systems rather than goals.
Be radically honest and truthful.
Believe in compound interest – everything runs on compound interest, from business to personal relationships.
The best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times. The best moments usually occur if a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
