A quick story about David Brooks, Bruce Springsteen & You

Shortly after I published the post titled The world is waiting on You, I received an email from a reader in New York telling me that David Brooks just published an article in NY Times on the same topic. It was titled The Power of the Particular (you can see it here). Here’s a little taste:

“Don’t try to be everyman. Don’t pretend you’re a member of every community you visit. Don’t try to be citizens of some artificial globalized community. Go deeper into your own tradition. Call more upon the geography of your own past. Be distinct and credible. People will come.”

My 2¢:
Taste Younique. Give people something to talk about. The world is waiting on you.
But don’t have to take my word for it. Just ask David Brooks.
