This is for the people who look at the world from a different perspective. The ones who are restless. The ones who strive for change. The ones who see things differently. The ones who don’t accept the status quo. The ones who challenge current thinking patterns. The ones who break down existing barriers. The ones who make the impossible possible. The ones who build new things. The ones most people call crazy, but we call them passionate. This is for the people just like you and me...
The other day I got lost. In a country where I don't speak the language. In a city where I don't know anyone. I was on a completely rundown bike. I got it for free for the day from the place I was staying at. I was outside the city. In the middle of nowhere. I had no cell phone. No Internet. And no map.
Writing can be a pretty dark and lonely place. Not to mention that it's very, very time consuming. And the rewards are usually so little that you must be insane to be willing to put that much time, energy and effort into it.
The other day I had a great conversation with Marvin Liao on my podcast (listen to it here). He taught me a lot of very valuable lessons. One of them is so quotable that I had to use it as a headline for this post. It really stuck with me.
