Don’t Be Afraid to Give Up The Good To Go For The Great – John D. Rockefellar

Don't Be Afraid to Give Up The Good To Go For The Great - John D. Rockefellar

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”

 – John D. Rockefeller

The truly ambitious among us have a certain distaste for comfort.

  • They complain when there’s nothing to complain about that there’s nothing to complain about, drive the people around them crazy by suggesting new features and brainstorming additions onto a product when it’s time to ship.
  • They make quick decisions and kill off stagnating projects at the drop of a hat. They don’t care much for money (unless it’s other people’s money) because they know the value of good ideas.
  • They never settle for good enough, because they know that good enough turns into just okay after a while, eventually languishing what now territory.

Instead, they jump, always, straight to what now and find it in the margins of a story, the edges of the perceivable landscape, right where expectation starts to interweave with imagination. They are never afraid of giving up the good to go for the great, because the good never quite pays off the same way. In 2016, will you be bold enough to go for the great?
