Don’t say the old lady screamed. Bring her on and let her scream.

On Life, From Benjamin Button

 ”It’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”


Be who you are and say what you feel. Because those who mind don’t matter
and those who matter don’t mind.

-Dr. Seuss

The Process of Creativity: LET Principle

from the WSJ op ed…

The process of creativity is messy, chaotic, sometimes even disgusting, and it reeks of failure, experimentation and disorganization. Because of this, most leaders don’t actually want creativity, they just want the results of it.

Creative output comes down to leaders who exhibit three things:

1. Listen. When you listen (not just hear) you discover insights that weren’t obvious before. People notice when you’re listening.

2. Empathize. Put yourself in other person’s shoes and make it a priority to fin truth in their words.

3. Trust. The first two are useless unless you can trust the individual.

The LET principle.
