Just do it differently

Just DO it… differently!
“But this is the way EVERYONE does it!”
“But this is the way it’s ALWAYS been done!”
“But this it the RIGHT way to do it!”
“But this is the ONLY way to do it!”
“But this is the BEST way to do it!”
???????????????????????????????????????????
REALLY?

Er bestaat een beroemd citaat dat meestal aan Einstein wordt toegeschreven, aan Rita Mae Brown en ook wel Benjamin Franklin en Mark Twain. Het lijkt erop dat Rita Mae Brown (in “Sudden death”) de eerste was die het op papier zette :”insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.” Volgens diverse bronnen parafraseerde zij een quote van de Basistekst van Narcotics Anonymous (1981)”Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results.”Er is kritiek op het clichématig gebruik en vermijdend en verkeerd gebruik. Maar onsdanks onze behoefte aan de comfortzone blijven we wel dromen en ons identiferen met dat wijzelf het ‘anders’ doen. En de lijsten op internet circuleren: 18 dingen die creatieve mensen anders doen; 7, 10, 22 of 12 dingen die gelukkige mensen anders doen. Het begint wat te tanen maar we waren dol op de andersdenkende steve Jobs en de campagne ‘Think different’

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? We make tools for these kinds of people. While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do”.
