Be a Crazy, Misfit, Rebel

Do you think I’m not catching flack for this website? For suggesting people act and think differently? For bucking trends and finding unique, smarter, better, and more healthful ways to optimize our lives? Of course I am. But criticism and doubt is motivating. Remember: first they laugh, then they follow. Steve Jobs knew a thing or two about this:

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. 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. And while some may 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.
