Margaret Mead's Widsom

I was fortunate enough to study anthropology in high school (yes, ISB was pretty well ahead of its time), so Margaret Mead and her work had a pretty big impact on me when I was still impressionable. Running into her words like this after kind of having lost track of her for a few years was a really nice surprise today. Thanks to Bruce Fryer for posting these:

"A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

"If one cannot state a matter clearly enough so that even an intelligent twelve-year-old can understand it, one should remain within the cloistered walls of the university and laboratory until one gets a better grasp of one's subject matter."

"What people say, what people do, and what they say they do are entirely different things."

"Even though the ship may go down, the journey goes on."

"You just have to learn not to care about the dust mites under the beds."

"Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else."

Simple wisdom you can apply to marketing, life, and whatever else matters. :)

Happy "Speak Like A Pirate Day," everyone.
