A Quote by Guy Kawasaki on revolutionaries, bird, elephant, poop, information, knowledge, and sharing

If someone tells you like you eat like a bird, the implication is that you don't eat much. Yet for their body weight, birds eat a lot. The peripatetic hummingbird, for example, eats the equivalent of 50 percent of its weight every day. (If you're a 200-pound male, imagine eating 100 pounds of food every day!)

Chances are no one will tell you that you poop like an elephant because elephants poop 165 pounds per day. So far you're probably thinking, "Guy is into the weirdest things. No wonder Apple had so many problems." However, there two are messages for revolutionaries in these biological facts.

First, a successful revolutionary relentlessly searches for, consumes, and absorbs knowledge, about the industry , customers, and competition. You do this by pressing the flesh of your customers, attending seminars and trade shows, reading journals, and browsing the internet.

Second, you need to spread the large amount of information knowledge that you've gained--pooping like an elephant. This means sharing information and discoveries with your fellow employees and occasionally even with your competitors.

Of all footprints, that of the elephant is supreme. Similarly, of all mindfulness meditations, that on death is supreme.
