Diego, you are so right. Well said.

I find myself struggling with the word “idealistic,” too. It really is so close to an insult. It is a word used by people who don’t want to be burdened by the responsibility of living up to their own creative potential.

I wish I could have had your courage to quit my job when I was in your situation. I never got farther than writing my resignation letter. I chickened out.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I am looking forward to poking around in your back catalog of writing and design thinking.
