Chris Dixon, a partner at a16z, has an awesome blog. I read it regularly and recently came across a post he wrote back in 2013 that I love.

In short, the title says it all. While most businesses are concerned about profits (and with good reason, :)) smart people with interesting hobbies are creating the tools business people will be using in ten years.

I could go on and on, but you really should just read his post.
