Writer E. B. White once wrote this to a man who had lost faith in the human race:
"Man's curiosity, his relentlessness, his inventiveness, his ingenuity have led him into deep trouble. We can only hope these same traits will enable him to claw his way out."
Ain't that the truth.
If you work a 9-5 that you really don't like —or god forbid, hate —you're leaving fulfillment, a sense of purpose, and a roaring river of creative energy on the table.
I believe for the world the get better, we collectively need to stop leaving creativity on the table. Stop trying to fit into workplaces models that are outdated and based on goals of the Industrial Revolution. We are post-Industrial, you guys. That means doing work that matters with all the tools and leverage that's available to us.
That's why I do what I do.
As E.B. White said so presciently, it's the only way we're going to get out of this mess.
