We would snag balls out of the sewers with coat hangers, since we couldn’t afford new ones. We snuck into the movie theater’s back door, opened by the one kid who entered legally with the money we pooled. Summer vacations meant playing in the schoolyard or in the streets (hence, the balls winding up in the sewers). All of our families were blue collar, lower class.

S. Marine Corps’ branding (“a few good men”), which accentuated selectivity, scarcity, and high status for enlistment • BMW’s “ultimate driving machine” slogan, when safety and economy were being touted by others • Apple’s emphasis on design, which subordinated engineering and promoted aesthetics as being important in hardware • Certain dog breeders’ choice to specialize solely in white German shepherds, which old-school dog snobs consider a freak caused by recessive genes, but which are now immensely popular with the public (as an independent breed, white shepherds would be in the top quartile) • Rod Stewart’s move from rock to standards, with a voice barely up to it but a passion that’s unmistakable, creating an entirely new following (my wife being a devotee) How does comfort with “being different” help us in our work?
