I am reading Chris Brogan’s new book, the Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth. The book’s tag line is¬†Entrepreneurship for Weirdos, Misfits and World Dominators.¬†While I don’t consider myself a weirdo, early in my career I frequently felt like a misfit. ¬†And I definitely want to dominate the world. ¬†Not in a bad way. ¬†I just want to make an impact. Make that a BIG impact. Chris’ book has tons of practical tips about how to celebrate the things that may have made you feel like a misfit and to focus forward and channel your talents and energies toward being a world changing disruptor. For me, when I was in Corporate America, I just couldn’t stomach the status quo. ¬†And I couldn’t stand incremental change, when it was possible to both innovate and differentiate with the same resources. ¬†It seemed like such a waste to me. I’ve made a lot of money over the last 20+¬†years leveraging that discomfort as a strategic consultant to my industry. But in the end, I can’t find satisfaction telling others not to accept the status quo and advising them to truly leap frog the competition when it comes to innovation. ¬†Despite paying my firm boatloads of money, most of them continued to hold on to the status quo with a vengeance, or went back to do more research, presumably to help lower their risk. Now, I have to just deliver the solution. ¬†Simplify the challenge. ¬†Save people time. ¬†Good thing is that I’ve already built it and am just putting the finishing touches on now. Yes, I’ve chosen to be a freak. ¬†World domination here I come!
