“You’re not gonna get picked. Dick Clarke has passed away. He’s not going to call and put you on American Bandstand. It’s over. And it’s being replaced by the awesome scary responsibility of picking yourself.” -Seth Godin
The age of the non-entrepreneur and the non-artist is dead.
Our generation can no longer afford the luxury of such casual, vague, and oversimplified distinctions.
The world is becoming an increasingly smaller space for those who allow themselves to be defined as uncreative or “not-in-charge.”
It is now a create or die world.
In truth, it has always been a create or die world. But the faster moving pace of today’s society is exposing more quickly than ever before the illusion of security as a passively experienced phenomenon.
We get what we create and nothing else. The power to shape the world is in our hands.
It’s always been this way, but fortunately, it’s becoming increasingly harder to lie to ourselves about that fact.
This is wonderful news. And I’m thankful for it.
What are YOU thankful for?
