Quotebook: The Upside of Unreasonable

How are you seen by the members of your team?  By your peers?  What about senior leadership?  Are you seen as someone who keeps the peace?  Or more as the one rockin’ the boat?

I’ve said for years that my dream job title is The Disruptor of the Status Quo.  And that’s why I love this quote about the upside of the unreasonable man:

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the conditions that surround him. The unreasonable man adapts surrounding conditions to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” George Bernard Shaw

By the way, the battle with the status quo is a recurring theme here.  If you haven’t read my article, Beware the Lure of the Status Quo…you should read it today!
