The creative process is essentially impossible to describe.
I made my ignorance a badge of honor…what that meant was that I asked a lot of questions.
When I’m paying attention to sound, I’m thinking more about active listening. What are you hearing, versus what are you listening to?
There are a lot of times where we go into something with a preconceived notion, a set destination, a thing that we want to happen. If you take a step back, and you’re actively listening, there’s a way that the stories and the moments unfold for you in a different way.
Go for three feet past the finish line and you’ll do better than everybody, every time.
Never be afraid to show up for someone else.
Nobody leaves the battlefield unscathed.
It’s on us to make sure that change happens in a way in which all people are heard, all people are represented.
Every single person in this city has the ability to make change.
More important than making decisions is making meaning, is helping everybody make sense out of a complex world. I describe it in rules of thumb as changing the signal-to-noise ratio. We have too much noise—that's content. . . . What we lack is the ability to separate the signal from the noise—and that's what context is all about and ultimately that's what leadership is about.
Fast Company, when we started it, didn't have a founding story, so I made one up. Because the nice thing about stories is they don't absolutely have to be true literally, they have to be true to the spirit of the story you're telling.
Brands are stories that we tell. Brands are promises that we make as business people.
Stories are how we connect with each other and how we make meaning in our lives. They provide context. They provide connections. They provide community.
Rule number 16 says, 'Facts are facts. Stories are how we learn.'
What's the story behind the data? That's context that explains what is important.
Context seeks to explain what is going on in the world so that we can make sense of it. Context takes this commodity and transform it into meaning.
Information today—content today—is a commodity. It's a very low value offer. What do we value? What creates value? Well, what creates value is context.
Content is a commodity. Content is the digital equivalent of pig iron.
Context beats content.
'Stuff' is all about content.
"Courage resides in each of us. It’s a deep and ever-replenishing reservoir, not unlike love. Over the course of our lives we will be called upon to act from a place of courage again, again, and again."
Jasmine Beach Ferrara
Courage is RESPONSIBILITY for me. Responsibility to myself, responsibility to others!
As for me, courage is not an act or decision, it is a skill to be oneself!
В моем аспекте, смелость - это не просто поступок или решение, - это умение быть собой. Как вообще воспринимают люди, для кого-то это може быть решительность, в плане что-то сделать, придерживаться какого-то решения, например бросить курить; для кого-то может быть храбрость,часто путают, вот совершить поступок, которого от тебя никто не ждал. Для меня это же ОТВЕТСТВЕННОСТЬ. Ответственность перед собой, ответственность перед другими!
If you do not have the courage to suck, then it’s really hard to even start.
