"Skeptics and cynics never did the impossible, and we need the impossible to bridge our resource gap. Please don’t call a committee hearing or start a research study to follow up on this idea. Just go do it."

"I have a simple rule for quitting jobs, and it has served me pretty well in the past.

You should quit your job when you stop loving your job. Sounds straightforward, but how do you define that?

Well, I believe the definition of whether you love your job, is whether you look forward to Mondays. If too many weeks go by without this feeling, you should start evaluating your situation and working out if you could be happier somewhere else. Don’t settle. Life’s too short.

The other aspect to enjoying your job is learning. As soon as you stop learning, resign and move on. Working with highly intelligent people who are constantly teaching you things is a crucial part of of self development.”

"No amount of fame feeds this thing. It has to come from the inside….Never give in. Never surrender. What I have to add to that is, it will be worth it. Early on, we have a vision of the way the world should work—don’t let go of that because it gets co-opted."

Excellent advice from the always great James Victore via The Great Discontent (via creativesomething)

"To have more creative ideas we need to evaluate not the color of the room or the size of our notebook, but instead whether or not we got a full night of sleep, what motivation we’re dealing with, our level of interest and curiosity, our ability to tinker and experiment…"

What really matters for having ideas and why the color of your room doesn’t matter (via creativesomething)

"I have lots of things to teach you now, in case we ever meet, concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree on a cold winter day. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don’t worry. It’s all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever. 
Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity.
We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. 
I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space, but the emptiness of space will never crumble away because it was never born.”

Jack Kerouac
