The Crazies

Bill Gates once said his goal was for every home in the country to possess a computer running Windows. Other successful visionaries had similarly lofty goals. Before any goal can be accomplished, it has to be created in one’s minds. The best goals are those that excite you so much that you can taste them, feel them and believe in them. These goals require vision.

My own vision with respect to MIUSA clothing is that in the very near future, every department store or designer clothing store carries only clothes bearing the Made In USA label. I don’t know how far away that goal is or if it will ever happen. All I can do is to committ to the vision as Bill Gates did and work as hard as I can to get as close as possible to acheiving my vision. Perhaps like my greatest heroes Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Homer Hickham, Thomas Edison and many other visionaries, maybe I’m just plain crazy. Here’s hoping I am:)

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine. They heal.
They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

While some see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world, are the ones who do.

– the immortal Steve Jobs
