are you scaring anyone?
via Olivier, via Kathy Sierra, a wonderful reminder. are your ideas scaring anyone? are your ideas big or just status quo? are you actually creating change or simply creating sameness?
"If your new Big Idea doesn't scare the hell out of you, it's probably not a new Big Idea. If it doesn't scare other people, it might be because you allowed the consensus (or what you imagined as the consensus) to smooth the pointy bits, buffing and polishing the idea into a nice safe state that displeases nobody and delights nobody."
here's to a little ruffling of the feathers.
