I’m a huge Chili Peppers fan, yet hadn’t seen that Frusciante quote. Wanna see an example of ego, here is Frusciante clearly purposely playing out of tune and screaming to upset Kiedis…which was always the clash of egos in that band! Great article.
Great article Ryan. I am always fascinated to understand what ratio of such people you reference, had a clear vision of the power they wished to obtain from the start, versus those where it just snowballed and thus their cause, intention, and action evolved as they went along, attaining power as if by mistake. No doubt there are cases where people…
YES Benjamin! A gorgeously written post… itself a representation of getting it done! A great piece of inspiration for me and our team at our new startup gaggle. Blessings to you, and have a great weekend brother.
Great blog man. It is so sad that it often takes us to be ill (physically, mentally, both) to realise just how much we need people. We need relationships. We need someone who knows us so deeply, they are able to find that trigger in us, that we have been unable to find oursleves. Roll on part 3
Thank you for this Nassim. This is in total contrast, to the very little press that I am reading in Britain. Enlightening and enriching, as with all of your posts. Thank you for sharing this, and my deepest sympathies for your loss.
I really believe, as you highlight, that our spending habits are all connected. £3 coffee, £30 fast fashion t-shirt, it’s all the same. Unplanned, impulsive luxuries. Having tried to cut our fast fashion for good, I did blip - always in a panic buy because I hadn’t planned. So I believe it does take time. Part of me is ashamed by that. But then, cold…
Thank you for this article Rodney. I took a great deal, and learnt a lot from it. Anger, or a fire in my belly as I call it, can be a beautiful thing. Channelled well, in the manner you clearly do Rodney, can be emphatic. I look forward to learning more. Great peace, Benjamin.
Thank you Nassim. A wonderful and poignant example. We have been working in Greece this year and have seen first hand the lack of grasp and accuracy in recording people numbers. The outcome of course is too much money, in too many of the big agencies. Are you involved in advising the bug agencies at all?
Benjamin, this is simply brilliant. I love the level of accountability that you say is required. It is too easy to fool ourselves that a tweak will change to whole landscape. No. start from the bottom up, and take on the whole hill. Thank you for writing this.
