Inspired Misfires

Joel Spolsky, one of my techie heroes, wrote an article for Inc.com entitled “How Hard Could It Be?: Inspired Misfires”.

The gist of the article is about doing something when everyone else thinks it’s impossible or impractical. It’s a story that we’ve heard many times, and for us entrepreneurs, it never really gets old. People will tell you that your great idea won’t work — that you are setting yourself up for failure. They are the ones destined for middle-of-the-road thoughts, actions and lives. Thank goodness that Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Scott McNealey, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and (insert your favorite impractical success story here) didn’t listen.
