I love stupid dreams, yet for years we’ve lived in an economy that prized small responsible ambitions. A promotion. A proven career. A college degree. They are all packaged up versions of life in the status quo, impoverished dreams we adopt for their current utility.
It's sad to see great talent made into something small, particularly when it's done for misguided reasons. I could care less whether you want to be the youngest vice president in your company, or retire by the time you’re 45. I’m indifferent to your plans for a promotion next year.
An innovation driven economy is rushing towards us. There is no longer a reason to squeeze your soul into a box just to claim the reward of “success”. We are choosing sensible shoes in a world that will soon demand knee high neon boots.
