Be weird until the rest of the world catches up. – Jon Acuff

What does that mean? It means it took the world a little while to catch up to the weird.

That’s always the case with something new, different or unusual.

Maybe what you’re working on is weird. Nobody has done it quite like you. It would be easier to conform to how it’s always been done. Ordinary seems simpler sometimes.

Weird can be exhausting when so many people doubt you.

But we’re full up on ordinary. We’ve got supplies of common to last a lifetime. The storehouses of boring are shelved to the ceiling.
