And they are sometimes found when you are doing your most abstract and philosophical thinking, considering why the world is the way that it is and whether there might be an alternative to the dominant paradigm. Rarely can they be found in the temperate latitudes between the two spaces, where we spend 99% of our lives.”

  15. “Good marketers tell a story.”

Because that’s how long it’s going to take, guys.”
