Wonderful Advice for Risk Takers

“What I like to tell people is that the things that you get fired for when you’re young—the things that run against the grain, that are not common or logical, that don’t fit into the standard approach—are the exact same things that you win lifetime achievement awards for when you’re old . . . the things that get you into trouble are the things that are often remembered as being exceptional.”

Francis Ford Coppola

Part of a very interesting interview with the Harvard Business Review (audio available here).
