Intelligence is not only the ability to reason; it is also the ability to find relevant material in memory and to deploy attention when needed.Daniel Kahneman, Thinking, Fast and Slow
The most successful people are both rational and crazy.
As much as robots and artificial intelligence threaten our creativity, there will be some people who cultivate the randomness of thought to continue innovating.
Wrote Jean-Luc Godard: “It’s not where you take things from — it’s where you take them to.”
See the world, not its model
Folks may never know where they are going, but that is exactly how they get there.
“The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.”
Knowing where to look for answers is more important than memorizing a set of requirements or rules.
When in doubt, break the rules living by these rules:
1. Take initiative on my own first: do the legwork to find the answer. Be tenacious and know where to look.
2. Ask questions, know when to stop looking and ask for help. Not being afraid to be ignorant or wrong.
3. Share my ideas for the better solution.
4. Look to my teammates as a critical force—we learn together.
