Exercise your right to be different.

Walk backward and sit diagonal. Roll your office chair to the coffee machine—while seated—because you desperately need caffeine and don’t have time to stand. If sweater vests are a fashion faux pas, buy all the sweater vests you can find…one for every day of the year. Your tastes aren’t antique, you simply hate franchises and cookie-cutter anything. And that’s good because homogenized thinking gets nobody nowhere. Which is why you’re standing in a sea of seated drones, reading a book while hopping on one leg. It’s what makes you…well, you. Don’t change. Be different.

Keep climbing, because you can.
