This was on my cup of Starbucks coffee today:
The Way I See It #290
On the battlefield of ideas, winning requires moving toward the sound of the guns.
– Newt Gingrich
Former Speaker of the House of Representatives
I’m not big on battle metaphors. Too often they lead to a zero-sum philosophy of “I win, you lose.” or “You win, I lose.” In other words, WE never win. I think that is shortsighted.
Still, I love the perception that courage is required with ideas. That is absolutely true.
Ideas are like love. You only get out of them what you’re willing to risk yourself.
Don’t be afraid of running toward the sound of the guns today.
