Even though I absolutely love what I do, usually after a holiday I question whether I am up for what is required to keep Queen B going. Today I found an 'existential crisis' booster shot. An enthusiam steroid. I think I may have found my manifesto... "Think Different" was the advertising slogan for Apple in 1997. Too young to appreciate it then, I came across is today in a new magazine, Messenger Collective.
"Here’s to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
I have a lot to do now. Happy first day back from the long weekend. Take 5 minutes today to think, or be, crazy. And if you feel so inclined, write and tell me about it.
