Very proud to be included in this great piece on social + fashion by therightsteph for Time Inc.
The past week in Iceland served a lot of purposes: satisfy my #wanderlust, get back in the great outdoors, knock a country off the list, refresh, relax and rock the land of great Sagas. But above and beyond the obvious, it was a great way to deep dive with @blakesamic on all things disruptive in business.
Countless convo’s solidified why I love to do what I do. And it was a quote read at the end of a yoga class today that pretty much sums up the sentiment. Worth the 30 second read for sure and hope it inspires you as it has me.
“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery—isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.”
