Adjacent possibilities

Adjacent possibilities

Matt Mullenweg on The Big Web Show:

The most dangerous thing when you’re successful is to become too entrenched in the things you believe.

More context:

I say this all the time [in response to], “Oh, we tried that five years ago, it didn’t work.” “Well, let’s try it again.” …. You just have to constantly come at things with new eyes. You constantly need new people involved to bring those new eyes.

On finding new eyes:

You have to just find the best people in the world and get out of the way.(~50:00)

He goes on to lay out his thinking on the adjacent possible and a vision for our impact as “webcraftspeople.” Don’t miss it.
