*** You can either turn square or keep the mind of a rebel
some uppity living good some faced with death in the ghetto ***
Mack 10 ♦ Based on a True Story
The entrepreneur is king. Those stuck thinking square-cubed thoughts, i.e. in-the-box thinking are stuck with linear, arithmetic growth –2-4-6. It is the “rebel” path that leads to geometric growth 2-4-8, outside-the-box thinking and the good life rewards that go with that. I love Mack’s notion of “square.” In one sense it is being a goody-two-shoe. In another since it is literally the creation of bounded-thought. A square literally forces you to stay in the 4 corners. You are boxed in and are encouraged not to use the space outside of the lines. The high-risk, high-reward scenario by definition can only be found outside of the box. You have to do your work outside of the boundary lines.
When you color outside of the lines there are no limits to the expression or the nature of growth and creativity. If you like boxes, you can draw a bigger box over encapsulating the small square. Hell you don’t even have to stay on the paper. No matter what, you can’t get an growth bigger than 1 square box by 1 square box staying inside the lines. The geometric growth requires breaking through.
COLOR OUTSIDE THE LINES
GROW GEOMETRICALLY NOT ARITHMETICALLY
