11 Oct Disrupt – It’s more than a word you can teach in a class
1. interrupt (an event, activity, or process) by causing a disturbance or problem.
By definition, disrupting is going to upset some people who are committed to protecting the status quo. It’s one of the reasons it is such a popular term in the start-up culture. Those who don’t understand it or have never done it will never understand that it is more than a word, it’s the lifestyle of a founder / entrepreneur. The spirit of an entrepreneur can’t be taught in a class and it’s a joke for those people who believe it can. Ironically those who attempt to teach it, have never done it, only read about others great achievements. The great thing is, it’s not about how many books you read or how many years experience you have, most of the greatest ideas of our generation came from students with no experience, a great vision and unwavering passion to make a difference. Go ahead, change the world and upset a few people who are trying to hold you back along the way. There’s room for everybody who wants to make a positive change.
“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
– Steve Jobs
