Blog > Everyday wisdom

May 26, 2010

One of the things I love about reading blogs and tweets is the everyday wisdom that emerges. You lot inspire me. Here’s some recent favourites:

When you are standing on the edge of a cliff, a step forward is not progress. – Anonymous (from Tom Atlee’s web site)

We do make waves…sometimes intentionally and sometimes in spite of our best intentions. Think of the poor trader who pushed the wrong button and dropped the stock market 1000 points. Now that is a wave! But it was also a wave amongst many — like the meltdown in Greece. Our waves coalesce with all the rest creating new patterns and new waves. At the end of the day it is not about “my wave” or “your wave” — but riding the waves in our part of the pond. I think. – Harrison Owen

Conversation is the way that humans have always thought together.  In conversation we discover shared meaning. And:  To change the conversation, change who is in the conversation. – Meg Wheatley (from Chris Corrigan)

Ideas are not the problem. Getting clear about what we really care about so we actually want to act on an idea – that may be more of a challenge.Johnnie Moore

In the end these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go? – Siddhartha Gautama (from Patti Digh)
