The Art of Innovation (Guy Kawasaki)

  1. 1. 1. Make meaning
  2. 2. A woman is often measured by the things she cannotcontrol. She is measured by the way her body curves ordoesn’t curve.By where she is flat or straight or round. She is measuredby 36-24-36 and inches and ages and numbers. By all theoutside things that don’t ever add up to who she is on theinside.And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measuredby the things she can control, by who she is and who sheis trying to become because as every woman knows,measurements are only statistics, and statistics lie.
