Dabrowski's Sweater

Dabrowski's Sweater

http://www.nikkipetersen.comA post from @Ali Anani brought Dąbrowski to the front of my mind today.  If you're not familiar with Kazimierz Dąbrowski, he was a psychologist that was particularly interested in the development and functioning of...

I enjoyed this very much. Thank you. With all the buzz in the business world of being transparent I have recently been using clear fish line for all of my knitting. I made my choice and I am sticking to it; no one can call me a nitpicker.

This buzz was difficult for me to position because it spans different spectrum's of my own learning journey. I originally connected it to my yellow hive because it talked about Dabrowski (who I have not yet acquainted myself with) and curiosity about his work with "gifted children" as an intellectual treatise. If I however focused my attention on self or physical development I would have connected it to my green hive. In the end as I worked my way though it, I actually connected to my blue hive, because what I was actually picking up from this buzz was actually covering thoughts around managerial capability development and managing transitions - and so I plugged in to the business or entrepreneurial lens, and when I engage my follow up study of Dabrowski (probably after the New Year) that is how I am going to incorporate this into my learning journey. So in a strange way the connection I ended up making in my mind was linking the context of Dabrowski to the transitions Ram Charan talks about in his adaptation he calls "Leadership Pipeline" http://www.ram-charan.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Leadership-Pipeline-sample.pdf - that adaptation by itself is based on the work of Elliott Jaques. Jaques was also a psychologist, but his work was originally pioneered through the Tavistock Institute. Jaques BTW beyond is work on work level transitions is famous for creating/studying the term he coined as "Mid Life Crisis".

Anger or reflection... which would you choose?

Anger or reflection... which would you choose?

In one of my more philosophical moments the other night, I happened to mention that I remember hearing about an ancient oriental philosophy that says, "If a valuable glass breaks you should not be angry with it being broken, but instead reflect on...

Dear Graham, I say learn to go into our anger for emotion is always sending us a message that we do not hear, yes we feel the emotion but do not hear it. Thus instead of anger or reflection I offer anger AND appreciation. Appreciation has the kind of depth to it that enjoyment does not have and in the context of kintsugi, that depth can be termed spiritual, and in learning about kintsugi I now see how that this very appreciation invigorates the imagination and thus take us from this depth that is spiritual to the physicality of the beautiful - and here I see in the kintsugi craft a great profundity - a flow of artistry from spiritual to physical.

Never underestimate the power of simply being you and it having an impact. It's not about what you want, it's about the way you are and who are in being you that inspires them.
