Taking 60 seconds a day to make it a better one

dreaming the impossible dream

when we’re little we’re often asked what we want to be when we grow up. when we respond with fireman, ballerina, lemonade stand-owner, veterinarian or marine biologist, people smile, sometimes pat us on the head and say “you can be whatever you want”.

then we get older and the comments come with addendums, like “are you sure? there’s not much money in that” or “that’s really competitive, why don’t you try ____?” or even better, “good idea, but nobody’s done that before. why don’t you try ____ first, and then give that a shot.”

seth godin had a great short post about creating the perfect and impossible.  and for every kid, and kid at heart, who dreams of disrupting what is, and creating what should be, i smile and say “you can be whatever you want”.

Onward and upward, always.
