  19. For special promotions and updates: www.UNLABEL.me purchase here. We like to imagine that there’s a holy war between art and commerce. “One is creative and pure, the other is crass and dirty.” But, contrary to popular opinion; the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

  35. BE AN UN-LABEL. We, as a society, put things in a certain taxonomy and groupings, just like we do when shopping in the grocery store. We buy our dairy in the same place, the baked goods in the same place, the toilet paper in the same place. These labeling frameworks help us, as consumers, navigate the world. Ideas, places, and things are labeled so we can make sense of them.
  36. If we’re not careful we find ourselves acting out the label that society has slapped on our tin can, wearing pleated khakis, making our résumé look just like everyone else’s, and joining the herd of sheep. Worse still, in a spastic fit of defiance, we declare ourselves a “blacksheep”, only to end up in another herd... of “blacksheep”.
  37. When you refuse to be labeled, suddenly you play by your own rules, not theirs. You measure yourself by your own standards versus the GATEKEEPER’s abstract and often irrelevant compliance metrics.

  40. We want to organize our life in rational, logical, quantitative ways. I challenge you, the next time you are in a park or out in the woods, to look around you for a single straight line organized by nature. IT DOES NOT EXIST. Then why do we design our expectations that way?

  45. ...Focus on THE Authentic Pursuit. It’s critical that you dig deep down, from the inside out, and look outward and upward for your Vision for the Future. Not a vision of their future. Not a vision of the gatekeepers’ future. But a future that’s authentic.
