Dreamers

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.” – Lawrence of Arabia

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” – Edgar Allan Poe

So how about those who act on their dreams from the night with open eyes in the day?

Don’t join them if you can beat them

I guess this is the opposite of “if you can’t beat them, join them”.

Tolerate only A players

Quote from Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs:

You have to be ruthless if you want to build a team of A players. “It’s too easy, as a team grows, to put up with a few B players, and they then attract a few more B players, and soon you will even have some C players,” he recalled. “The Macintosh experience taught me that A players like to work only with other A players, which means you can’t indulge B players.”

Rules

“Rules are mostly made to be broken and are too often for the lazy to hide behind” – Douglas MacArthur

Add-on #1: just don’t get caught. 🙂

Add-on #2: if you do, pretend you don’t know the rules. 🙂

It takes courage to break rules, intelligence to know which rules to break and how, and imagination to get away with it.
This is why I consider breaking rules as both a good training and testing.

God is in the details
Devil is in the details
So which one will be there

Break all the rules, but not a single law.
