The Value of Silence and Solitude

“Most inventors and engineers I’ve met are like me … they live in their heads. They’re almost like artists. In fact, the very best of them are artists. And artists work best alone …. I’m going to give you some advice that might be hard to take. That advice is: Work alone… Not on a committee. Not on a team.”–Steve Wozniak, Apple Cofounder

  1. That quote is amazing. Love it.

    I automatically am channeling MJ’s “Leave Me Alone” when I think about trying to do my best work 🙂

    ….”Beat it” would potentially also be relevant to the point at hand to all the creepers and committees. I’ve doubled my disdain for “committees” or groups acting like committees in the last year.
