Seth Godin posted this video about a tribe that spontaneously came together at a music festival. He insightfully points out how guy number 2 and 3 make it into a ‘movement’, while guy #49 is irrelevant.
I’m still caught on guy number one. Without the other two guys, he really just looks like one solitary crazy dude. I’ve got to believe that most people who go out on a limb like this do so sheerly for the love of what they do, regardless of what happens. I’ve also got to believe that even passionate crazy dudes feel lonely at times.
What makes you step out when no one else is?
What keeps you going when no one else seems to be joining?
Ever leave someone else hanging like a dancing fool, only to realize you were the fool for not joining in earlier?
