Nice Quote: Peter Block :The Empowered Manager

Nothing impresses me more then quiet ideas. Ideas that don't hit you over the head with meaning. Like this inspiring quote from Peter Block's The Empowered Manager, "Every act of creation is an act of faith. The essence of faith is to proceed without any real evidence that our effort will be rewarded. The act of faith in choosing to live out a way of operating that we alone believe in gives real meaning to our work and our lives." and to quote Richard Barrett's, Liberating the corporate soul, "because creativity involves uncertainty in outcomes, it is easily blocked... Failure must be seen as a learning opportunity..."

Thanks Richard for the summary and Peter for the quiet idea.
