One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure

October 20, 2011

Today in our AM Huddle, one message from Corey's presentation was similar to an old saying: "A poor man does not learn from his mistakes. A good man does learn from his mistakes. A wise man learns from the mistakes of others."

Below is a video by Ian Ritchie, where he talks about the evolution of the internet and how he missed out on the chance to team up with Tim Berners Lee to develop the World Wide Web. The whole message is essentially on making sure to give things a chance and think outside the box, because you never know when a big opportunity might come your way. Dismissing someone as crazy and dismissing their ideas is only going to limit your success. Sometimes you have to be believe in someone else before you can believe in yourself. Take a leap of faith.
