My favorite crazy, genius poet, George Bernard Shaw, said: “The reasonable person adapts to the world; the unreasonable person persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable person.”

Reasonable: Plan ahead.
Unreasonable: Things are changing so frick’n fast that planning ahead could leave you farther behind!

Reasonable: Never invest more than you’re willing to lose.
Unreasonable: If you really believe in your game, go all in!

Reasonable: If you ask for too much you may crash the deal.
Unreasonable: Never be afraid to make an unreasonable request.

Reasonable: Stop while you’re ahead.
Unreasonable: Ahead isn’t far enough!

Reasonable: Never stop trying.
Unreasonable: You got to know when to fold ‘um.

Important because “In the beginning everything I ever did or said or suggested, I was told I was being unreasonable. But none of it seemed unreasonable to me.” —John Lennon
