New Post I wrote about moving on from my startup, and what’s next! Via Revolution.Is.

Entrepreneurs are taught to never give up and to push past fear. At first I thought I was afraid to fail but I realized I was afraid to move on. No one had ever told me that sometimes entrepreneurs lose interest.

#DoWhatYouLove from Jonathan (he started conducting real orchestras a few months later!)

Big innovation is right on the edge of ridiculous ideas. You need an environment that isn’t quite so judgmental about a ridiculous idea. Sometimes those are the ones that are so close to being the brilliant ones. If a space that allows for play can help encourage those types of ideas than you’ll come up with some possibly ridiculous but potentially groundbreaking ideas.

Brendan Boyle, Partner, IDEO, via a Q&A with The 99 Percent.

Boyle explains that for innovation to exist, play needs to be embedded in organizational culture. He argues that play isn’t the opposite of work, instead, boredom and depression are.
