generosity creativity innovation Your Inspirational Quote Monday May 23 2011~Seth Godin“Fear. It creates anger and selfishness. They sit together, supporting each other, as inseparable as red, orange and yellow on the spectrum.

Generosity, creativity, and the magic of graceful are at the other end in a similar cluster. If you seek to be creative, start by being generous. Like blue, indigo and violet, they live together.

Every day, we get a chance to give others the benefit of the doubt. Every day, we get the opportunity to give others our support, our confidence and our trust. And yet most days, we hesitate.

The industrial age is ending, and a new one is beginning. It produces art instead of stuff and it rewards gracefulness.”

“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth. Not going all the way and not starting.” (Siddhartha Gautama)

“Please stop waiting for a map. We reward those who draw maps, not those who follow them.”

“Poking doesn’t mean right. It means action.”

“This might not work” isn’t merely something to be tolerated; it’s something you should seek out.

“Risk is avoided because we’ve been trained to avoid failure.”

“Reject the tyranny of picked. Pick yourself.”

“Where did curiosity go? Initiative is a little like creativity in that both require curiosity. The difference is that the creative person is satisfied once he sees how it’s done. The initiator won’t rest until he does it.”

“The people arguing on behalf of accepting the status quo are the ones who, years ago, set out to change it. As disillusionment sets in, people stop poking.”
