Puddle At Fullerton Avenue Beach, Chicago Skyline Behind

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.
— Steve Jobs
(Apple Worldwide Developers’ Conference, 1997)

John Hancock Tower Reflected In Puddle At North Avenue Beach, Chicago

There’s an opposite to déjà vu. They call it jamais vu. It’s when you meet the same people or visit places, again and again, but each time is the first. Everybody is always a stranger. Nothing is ever familiar.
— Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

Chicago is always a stranger to me. Even now, when I can bike to spots with my eyes closed, I greet an altogether unique scene upon opening them, seeing the familiar remarkably reborn.
