  1. GREAT QUOTES @Conversa*onAge  
  2. “it is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important” − Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
  3. MECHANICS beat leadership, talent, and teamwork when it comes to trading an organization into strength, endurance and resilience.  It’s the I N V I S I B L E ALGORITHM that connects people to their promises. And it’s in plain sight if you know how to look.
  4. We  fear  the  things  –  and  people  –  that  we  do  not   understand  far  more  than  the  things  we  do,  even   if  the  la:er  are  much  more  risky.    For  this  reason,   it's  not  surprising  that  people  fear  technology.  Its   newness  is  confusing  and  no  one's  quite  certain   what  to  do  with  the  promises  it  offers.  
  5. Almost everybody has Their Thing for which they have high resolution appreciation. The problem is when we want and expect everyone in our domain to have the same exact Thing.
  6. CLARITY OF VISION, what you've been looking for from the wrong angle and not seeing at all... you labor, you sweat to SEE what you could be seeing from that other perspective.
  7. Architecture and building is about HOW you get around the obstacles that are presented to you. That sometimes determines how successful you'll be: How good are you at going around obstacles?
  8. Nowadays, more than any other time, people are eager for inspired ideas that stand out and are worth believing in. There’s so much disingenuous noise in our culture than when an idea is presented with SINCERITY and passion, it stands out and resonates.
  9. The reviews were terrible. They didn't understand what we were doing. They gave the fourth album a one paragraph review. There's a lot of material on that: Black Dog, When the Levy Breaks, Stairway to Heaven... one paragraph. They didn't have a clue of what was going on. I just didn't bother reading the papers from that point on.
  10. We all think that an exception is going to be made in our case and we're going to live forever. Being a human is actually arriving at the understanding that that's not going to be. STORY is there to remind us that it's just OK.
  11. Unlike any other creature on this planet, humans can learn and understand, without having experienced. They can THINK themselves into other people’s places.
  12. Remain TRUE to yourself and your philosophy. Changing in the face of adversity will in fact diminish your credibility with your customers. […] you can’t become credible overnight just on the basis of huge advertising campaigns. […] To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail.
  13. This is an old problem. I suppose it comes from people wanting to be correct and not trusting themselves, fearing they’ll seem like uneducated country bumpkins in his day, if they told what they saw and how it struck them. I don’t remember ever being forced to wear those sorts of blinders when I was a child. Children do report what they SEE.
  14. The complexity of the problems we face is growing bigger and bigger. And our ability to solve problems is changing... We have 40 watts of energy to work with and what we really respond to is that difference in that other person...  We  can  be  selec*vely  strange  to   other  people...  Let's reach out to the STRANGE… When we are together, creativity goes up.
  15. Don’t sign on for more problems than you must. Resist the temptation to involve yourself in other people’s zones of expertise and responsibility. Monitor troublesome situations if you need to, but don’t insert yourself unless you’re running out of time and a solution is nowhere in sight. In short, stifle your inner control freak.
  16. I think I've done okay. I take responsibility for my successes as well as my failures. But when I look at my professional mistakes, I'm always left with the feeling that maybe I should have done MORE.
  17. The things that you BUILD in the next decade are going to cost people, likely millions of people, maybe a billion people depending on the networks where you hitch your respective wagons, they are going to cost a lot of people a lot of time.
  18. In the end, the biggest risk is not to take any risks at all. In science we find that: •  The opposite of a deep TRUTH can also be true: waves can also be particles, and energy is another form of matter; two mutually exclusive things can be part of the same larger reality •  Every action has a reaction •  Everything is CONNECTED •  Things look different in different reference frames •  Rules change in unfamiliar terrain, often in counterintuitive ways
