What are good quotes from The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth?

“What you don't do is surrender. You might retreat occasionally, but you don't give up.”

“The future is what I create today. Every day.”

“Own your words. Your words are the maps to your intentions.”

“Are you using your degree as it was intended in your current job? Lots of people aren't. How is the education system keeping up with the velocity of change in what actually constitutes a real job?”

“You must own your intentions.”

“The key is, no matter what story you tell, make your buyer the hero.”

“Owning your future is about having the discipline to execute your personal vision.

“Complexity serves nothing but our ego. Be able to say what you do in a way that people can understand.”

“When people tell you they're busy all the time, they are either very busy because they've not quite learned to master time, or they're not at all busy, but feel embarrassed about this fact.”

“Until someone else does something once, no one will think it can be done. Until someone else repeats it, everyone will think you're lucky. By the time everyone's doing it, who cares?”

“Disruption has become the norm in business. But this doesn't always mean massive and world-changing disruption. Sometimes, it just means that the world is a bit more open to conducting business the way you'd prefer to do it these days.”

“I have something to say, and I want to say it. And I want to use these modern tools of entrepreneurship to share it with the world,” you've got to be ready [for some negative reactions]. Because they are going to come out of the woodwork and say the weirdest, craziest shit to you—and you have to not take it personally.”
