I’m currently reading Seth Godin’s Small Is the New Big, a provocative book about being innovative and doing what matters. Godin suggests that competence kills innovation, something akin to what Clayton Christensen postulated in his 1997 book The Innovator’s Dilemma (in which he coined the phrase “disruptive technology”). To acheive remarkable results requires extraordinary, not competent, action.
I’m on an extraordinary journey, and looking for like-minded, extraordinary people. How about you?
I’ve had a few comments about the visual changes to the blog. They generally go something like this: “What’s with the retina-scarring orange?!” It is rather, vibrant, isn’t it? It’s part of the natural evolution of the site, and part of that extraordinary journey. Maybe if Crayola expanded their color line, they could call it “Extraordinary Orange.” Any way, it’s not a fixture of the site. As with life, change is the one constant we can all rely on.
And so, beginning October 1st, I’m going to be unveiling a new header each month. So for now, enjoy the orange.
