My favourite notes from WDS

These are some of the words I have taken away from WDS2015. They are notes I have written down, but I apologize if they are not exact quotes. So many good turns of phrase. Inspiration! My notebook feels like a little piece of gold, thought it might be nice to share.

  • “How do you live a remarkable life in a conventional world?”  -Chris Guillebeau
  • “If you stay in MOTION, you don’t have to face the things that make you EMOTIONAL.” -Jon Acuff
  • “Flip the epic switch.” -Asha Dornfest
  • “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” -Maya Angelou, (used in Vani Hari’s presentation)
  • “Be not a superhero, but a super human.” -Lewis Howes
  • “Real relationships cost you something.” -Jon Acuff
  • “We want painful emotions to be better and when they can’t be fixed we get the message that grief needs to be silenced.” -Megan Devine
  • “What if I was worthy of my own trust?” -Asha Dornfest
  • “Is there anything I could do that would make you not love me?” -Lewis Howes
  • “If you want to be awesome, treat people more awesomely.” -Kid President
  • “Give life permission to break your heart.” -Lissa Rankin
  • “Even elephants are born small.” -Derek Siver
  • “Sometimes the tapestry has to come completely apart in order to be re-woven.” –Tess Vigeland
  • Inspired by Kurt Vonnegut, “Karass – a group of incarnated beings whose job it is to bring into existence, a holy idea.” -Lissa Rankin
  • “Nobody knows the future.” -Derek Sivers
  • “I use WDS to remember who I am, not the roles I play.” -WDS2015 attendee from Japan
  • “Don’t be a know it all.” -Wes from Armosa Studios
  • “Creativity is the new literacy.” –Chase Jarvis
  • “Gen X is missing deep conversation today, long form communication.” -Jonathan Fields

I don’t suppose this qualifies as long form communication, but I very much agree with Jonathan Fields. Something I will be trying to do more of.
