    I liked myths. They weren’t adult stories and they weren’t children’s stories. They were better than that. They just were.
    Note: Gaiman's notion of myth being universally accessible appeals to me a great deal.

  • Stephen shared from The Design of Business: Why Design Thinking is the Next Competitive Advantage by Roger L. Martin
    Many managers complain that, because they are constantly running around putting out brushfires, they can never focus on their so-called real jobs. But perhaps their real job is firefighting projects.
    Note: I have said this to @allidc many times.
  • Stephen shared from I Shall Wear Midnight (Discworld Book 38) by Terry Pratchett
    Ye know full well that the meaning of life is to find your gift. To find your gift is happiness. Never tae find it is misery.
