Tom Peters on What Revolutionaries Need

All revolutionaries need respectable cover. And the wisdom of trusted elders. So contact, cultivate, nuture like-minded souls who are higher up the food chain than you are. They will require care and feeding, but it’s worth the effort.
Tom Peters, The Brand You 50

The challenge: why aren’t you contacting people in your field who are better at what they do than you are? What’s stopping you? What about people within your organization who will fight for you and your ideas? You need them.
