About

I'm Campbell.  This is my blog. I founded Loosecubes, an office sharing community, and live in New York City.

I believe everyone has the power inside them to do something great.  Although not everyone aspires to greatness, I think you should.  I hope my blog will encourage you to take a couple steps forward every day. Let's do it together.

People are boring

Someone said to me the other day, “Campbell, I hate to tell you, but most of the people working out of Loosecubes are not going to be super interesting people.  Most of them are probably pretty boring.  Especially outside New York and San Francisco.  Perhaps you shouldn’t hinge your business so much on bringing interesting people together.” 

People are boring? 

No, maybe you’re boring.  

There’s always something you can learn from another person, whether it’s your hairdresser, a finance guy, or the guy working in the mailroom.  Most people don’t spend 16 hours a day being boring and 8 hours a day sleeping.   They spend their time doing something.  Maybe they know how to cook Thai food.  Maybe they’ve read every presidential biography.  Maybe they’ve seen every episode of Seinfeld and can retell all the jokes.  You can never tell by looking.  If someone seems boring on the outside, look inside yourself and ask if you’re asking the right questions.  It’s up to you.  Get creative.

It is really easy to think that all cool ideas and tech is happening (or has to happen) in the valley, or in NYC, or even Austin. It really is easy to believe that if you have an idea, the only way to make it happen with "cool" people is to leave and connect with "them" elsewhere. But, like you said, everyone has a story and every market usually has the people you need to push an idea forward. Just have to look in the right place or change your filter for who you are looking for in the first place.
