Sklover’s Thoughts for the Work Week

Sklover’s Thoughts for the Work Week


“When you innovate, you’ve got to be prepared for people telling you that you are nuts.”

– Larry Ellison, Founder of Oracle Corporation

Whether you “see things others don’t,” “dance to the beat of a different drummer,” are “ahead of your time,” or have a rather odd “vision” of how things work, or should work, you are almost by definition a “nut.” That’s what they told Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Steve Jobs of Apple, Albert Einstein and each and every other “nutty” innovator, creator and ground breaker. Don’t fear it, but rather, embrace it. Lots of lawyers tell me I am “nuts” for maintaining this website, but they just don’t see what I do, and what the many people each day who send me wonderful notes do, too. Nuts . . . unite!
