Who invented this?

“Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.” — Steve Jobs

Everything that you know to be conventional was unconventional at some point. 

Even the most mundane things — like the cup sitting on your desk — were once a novel and strange concept. 

Remote work was a weird concept until it wasn’t. 

Blocking off time on the calendar for Deep Work was a weird concept until it wasn’t. 

The electric car was a fantasy — a joke even — until it wasn’t. 

You’re not foolish to think that things can be different — they absolutely can be. 

It just takes a lot of tenacity, conviction, and good timing.
