Never Do What Others Do

This advice was offered on her deathbed by the grandmother to a man whose spiritual advice I admire a great deal. He followed that advice. It cost him dearly.

Choosing to live outside the lines, to live a different life will do that sometimes.

However, that man also left an extraordinary legacy of books, materials and an example that, like other Outliers, serves to inspire me.
