8 Reasons Why I Love Working On PdP
In my last post, I talk about part-timing PdP to pursue a personal passion.
This is not to say I am “resigning” from the company, but more that I am finally giving myself more time to explore things I’ve long put on the back burner.
PdP still isn’t perfect, and there are things I still want to change about how we do things, or the direction we’re going, but I’m certainly happy about our PdP-losophy (which I planted onto my desktop so that I am reminded of it everyday).

8 9 reasons for loving the work I do at PdP integrate the very values from our PdP-losophy, which are also a lot of the things I value in living my own life as well. If you care to read the lengthy ramblings of an entrepreneur with ADD or are just curious about what motivates me to keep on with Punchdrunk Panda, come, kill time with me.
The classic Apple ad that made it an aspirational brand.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They are not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them, because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
To prepare my Punchdrunk Panda colleagues for our brand discussion and planning session, I had just recently shared this video with them because Apple really set the standard for creating a company that changes the world, and this really moves me (and I’d like to think the rest of the world) personally, and just inspires us to live lives of meaning.
Steve Jobs now deserves a place with the rest of these people.
The world is at a great loss with the departure of a creative visionary who chose to never settle, stay hungry, and stay foolish.

…For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today”? And whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
