Wisdom from Wozniak
Guy Kawasaki has posted a review of an interesting new book, Founders at Work: Stories of Startupsâ€™ Early Days. I donâ€™t know that I normally would plan to read a book on startup companies, but Guyâ€™s enthusiasm certainly has me sold.
Guyâ€™s review cites one quote in particular that inspired me:
â€œAll the best things I did at Apple came from (a) not having money, and (b) not having done it before, ever.â€â€”Steve Wozniak, Apple
Think about all of the discussions we have in the association community about either not having enough resources or not having enough information to implement Great Idea X. What if we looked at our lack of resources as a strength instead of a weakness? Could we come up with ideas as great as some of the things that have come out of Apple (I ask, while protectively clutching my iPod)?
