Beautiful statement by Jason Calacanis today:
… I’m amazed at how pessimistic the average person is. I’ve come to realize in my career is that the difference between people who gets things done and those who do not is this pessimism. I’ve always been attracted to the folks who say “what if we could…” or “what if you.” When I hear people talk like that I get engaged. When I hear “that’s been done already….” and “that will never work…” I want to walk away from the conversation. I guess that means I’m delusional on some level, and I’m realizing that the best products and companies out there are typically lead by delusional people who hire people who are very obsessive about details–but who are also dreamers.
What if you could…
Can you picture someone with a twinkle in their eye saying those words? Those are the people you should stay close to.
