Your First Day As A Heretic 

In Seth Godin’s book Linchpin, we find out about drawing your own map, about how we should question the rules of the system, about being a heretic.

Standing up for our dignity is tough when we are rewarded otherwise.  Raising your hand to stupidity is hard when you’re concerned about getting all your fingers back.

But there’s a day coming when you will say, “I’ve had enough!”  When that day comes, don’t test the water with a toe-dip.  Make a committed decision to act with confidence.

And since this decision to stand up for yourself may be your last with your company, I say pick something worthy, not a few unauthorized changes to your office décor.
