When Kerouac said grab your rucksack and climb a mountain.
He wasn’t saying wait until you get your ducks in a row. Wait for the market conditions to be right. Or wait until you have enough school or the right job and then when its safe take a leap.
He was saying, “Follow me.”
And it ignited a revolution. It broke down the old system to enable the impossible.
He changed the way we think.
Imagine how much easier it would have been to say, “Follow me” with Twitter or Facebook to spread your ideas back in the 50’s and 60’s.
This is the golden age of connection. It is easier than ever before to stand up and say, “This is me. This is what I do. Follow me.”
