“We’re living in a moment of time, the first moment of time when a billion people are connected, when your work is judged [more than ever before] based on what you do rather than who you are, and when credentials, access to capital, and raw power have been dwarfed by the question:
“Do I care about what you do?”
We built this world for you. Not so you could watch more online videos, keep up on your feeds, and LOL with your high school friends. We built it so you could do what you’re capable of. Without apology and without excuse. Go.”
—From my favourite Seth Godin’s book: The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?
