There’s Always A Good Reason Why You’re Crazy.

There’s always a good reason why you shouldn’t be doing what you’re doing. There is “always” a faster way. Or an option that requires less money out of pocket.

The truth about big ideas and unbelievable dreams is that it all looks crazy until you achieve the goal you had in mind all along.

Do you know what’s not crazy (apparently)?

Ordinary ideas — that’s what. Small dreams. Tiny ambitions. Mediocre goals.

If you want to really make a big difference — if you want to tear down the old ways and build something new — then you’re crazy.

And there are a good number of people who will make sure you know it.

You just have to decide if your big idea is worth being called a few names.

You have to decide for yourself if you can live with uncertainty and doubt and chaos.

If you can, you might just be crazy enough to do something pretty damn awesome.
