Individualist: How do we embrace being weird?

Sh#t Your Ego Says author James McCrae says embracing your weirdness gives you a new perspective, and the world needs a new perspective. Innovation does not happen within the status quo. Innovation happens when outsiders challenge the status quo with weird ideas.
