The Virtue of Pissing People Off
In the rush for likes, fans and followers, we are afraid to offend anyone. We play it safe. We want to be "well liked". Trouble is, all the likes, fans and followers in the world don't amount to diddly squat without a legion of passionate advocates. We're living through the meh economy – a market is saturated with polite mediocrity. It's time to wake up. It's time to take a stand. It's time to transform ourselves, our companies and our causes. Let's be a catalyst for passionate ideas. Let's create big red Kool-Aid Pitchers of awesomeness that makes our fans bust through walls and say "Oh hell yeah!" You'll leave with a few new ideas in their head, a spring in your step and the fire in your belly rekindled.
