In honor of Steve Jobs and his legacy, I start my first PUMA blog entry with one of my favorite quotes. You will soon learn I am a quote person. I love them, laugh at them, and share them, typically in that order. If you don’t have a quote book, start one now (yes, that is an order…but said with kind affection).
This quote is not soccer-ey. It is not even athletic. But it speaks to something at the core of all of us. The desire to think outside the box and take risks. To inspire. To BE inspired. To sing, dance, and live out loud. To live, lead, and pass it on.
So in honor of a man who loved to try, fail, try, and fail again… until he failed forward… here is one of my favorite quotes of all time:
"Here's to the Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world - are the ones who DO."

So, go be courageous today. The world is waiting.
And always remember…
