My dad always taught me that it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission.  And he taught me to always think big. I remember as a kid going to him once with this idea I had for a company.  I thought it was a really grand idea.  The kind of thing that a lot of people would say you're crazy for wanting to try.  He looked at me and said, "You know what your problem is?"  I shook my head.  "You're not thinking big enough."  I was taken aback.  He wasn't being sarcastic.  He was dead serious.  I thought this idea was the biggest idea ever. And he thought I wasn't thinking big enough.  He taught me that we really do set our own limits on what we're capable of doing.
