Inspiration is the music of creative intelligence.

by Rick Baker

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Our gift of creative intelligence must be there to inspire ourselves and others.

Our intuition is a special gift, with deep roots in our unconscious brains [lizard brains].

Our ability to inspire is linked to our creative intelligence and intuition - a wonderful aspect of our 'human condition'.

'Hope is not a Strategy', an interesting business book by Rick Page.

"Hope is an essential ingredient of leadership." a Deepak Chopra quote from his book, 'The Soul of Leadership'

Both are accurate statements.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

People who have a thorough understanding of themselves do better as business leaders. They understand their strengths and weaknesses; they understand their desires and goals; they understand their internal drivers and their behaviour; they understand their attitude toward and their reactions to situations and other people

Business flourishes when pleasant-enough personalities exchange interesting ideas.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Our technologies are becoming as fragile as our relationships. 

Puppy Love used to apply to puppies...then it morphed toward hand-holding teenagers...now it has morphed toward hand-touched technologies.

Some never tire of fighting the same battles, using the same weapons, & meeting the same defeats. What peculiar stamina!

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It seems some people never tire of experiencing the same old problems. What peculiar stamina!

Perhaps most of us appear that way when viewed from others' perspectives. [Attribution Bias]

Perhaps when observed by others most of us appear to obstinately cling to the bad habits that limit our ability to deal successfully with other people?

Perhaps my perceptions of other people's behaviour, as I watch them struggle, are too harsh?
