Hugh MacLeod to the rescue: “Ignore Everybody”
Hugh Macleod is a very wise, irreverent, witty guy who draws cartoons on the back of business cards. That’s odd enough, but the wisdom part always breaks through the funny part.
I’m now reading his book, “Ignore Everyone.” The title refers to his advice to have something creative that you own alone. Here’s an early passage that should get you hooked:
“The sovereignty you have over your work will inspire far more people than the actual content ever will. How your own sovereignty inspires other people to find their own sovereignty, their own sense of freedom and possibility, will give the work far more power than the work’s objective merits ever will.
Your idea doesn’t have to be big. It just has to be yours alone. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do something really amazing.”
Here’s a bite from his blog, which is a must-add to your RSS list.
2. LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE.
If it doesn’t feel that way to you, you’re doing something wrong. I don’t care old you are, or how many responsibilities you have. Life is not baseball. God only gave us one inning.
