With the herd?

I hang out with a lot of entrepreneurs. In that circle, innovative ideas and creativity are highly valued, as well as a high tolerance for risk.

But it also takes a lot of people working in little cubicles to keep the wheels of life moving forward.

Both‐and. It takes both ends of the spectrum for us to succeed, both corporately and as societies.

I tend toward the worker‐bee end of the spectrum. But I love spending time with entrepreneurs.

  1. A slighty related quote I know (I’m paraphrasing): ‘Without individuals nothing would ever start. Without institutions nothing would ever continue’.

    1. Agreed. A somewhat related thought is that it takes methodical people to keep the planet running. It takes the creative people to keep the methodical people from going insane.

      I originally said “bland” instead of “methodical” in my tumblr post of September 24, 2010.
