Dream (and Disrupt) Roundup

Here’s what inspired me to dream and disrupt this week!

Chase your dream, not your competition.Jeff Harbert

Create something, sell it, make it better, sell it some more and then create something that obsoletes what you used to make.Salick

Out of silence comes the greatest creativity. Not when we are rushing and panicking.James Altucher

If you start with the tool & what’s easy for IT, you fail. We’ve got to get beyond old school rationale. - Megan Murray  v Terri Griffith

Every person’s opinion has value. If there’s a market that’s underserved, that’s a market of value. – Danielle Belton v TheLi_st

“If you want to know what a company’s real values are, just notice your experience as a customer.”Jesse Lyn Stoner

Perhaps because of my piece Why I Still Dream of Having It All, I was riveted by Beyonce’s Life is But a Dream documentary (thanks Julie Anixter) and Sonia Sotomayor’s “Having it All” commentary on 60 minutes (thanks Loriana).

And then there’s the pure joy of this photograph — thanks for pinning Melanie Mauer.

What inspired you this week?

    this is awesome

  • Gary Gruber

    Visiting Frida Kahlo’s home in Mexico City was inspiring to see how she contained her suffering to not impose it on others. And, the Diego Rivera murals that captured so much of Mexico’s troubled history were simply amazing.

  • Whitney Johnson

    Thank you Adaora — and Gary, so very interesting. Much appreciated!

    What inspired me this week was Jean Houston’s Youtube video “Gather The Women”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SQhxMc9DmE

    The video starts with “We all have the extraordinary coded within us waiting to be released”…what an awesome impetus then to Dream, Dare and Do.

    And indeed we need to gather the women.
