Great entrepreneurs are willing to be vulnerable

‘To embrace the misfit in oneself is to be vulnerable. It is to forsake the easy acceptance that comes with fitting in and to instead be fortified by a kind of love, really. A love of life, a love of wonder, and, ultimately, a sustaining love for oneself.’
Dan Pallotta
in his blogpost ‘Misfit Entrepreneurs’ on Harvard Business Review

The Trend Of Encouraging Overeducation

‘Even top-tier MBA degrees often say more about the desire to have an important credential
than about any greater capacity to be a good leader or manager.’

Explore Your Landscape Of Life

‘Life isn’t a project to be completed; it is an unknowable landscape to be explored. A 24-year-old can’t sit down and define the purpose of life in the manner of a school exercise because she is not yet deep enough into the landscape to know herself or her purpose. That young person — or any person — can’t see into the future to know what wars, loves, diseases and chances may loom. She may know concepts, like parenthood or old age, but she doesn’t really understand their meanings until she is engaged in them.’
