Acts of violence are simply carried out because...
Comments09/07/2016 #2 Jason AttarIf you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son!
by Rudyard Kipling08/07/2016 #1 Jim MurrayYou had me at "Acts of violence are simply carried out because of selfishness, greed, stupidity, and ignorance" . That is the second time today I have heard that from people who have obviously thought it through. The only problem I see is that if someone in does posses all those qualities, are they even capable of hearing the message? I hope they are.

Comments06/06/2016 #4 Oliver Moloney@Richard Claydon, It's been wonderful to read my our articles this morning and the section referring to the creative process could not be more apt! When I reach stage 3 I take a step away from the project and give both myself and the project itself some time to breath. More like this for the future!06/06/2016 #2 NO oneI always love your buzzes Richard, even as a Designer and I think specially as one, I'm expected to be super original, full of ideas, and create amazing things/designs, but with daily chores and so much information on "how to be", "the best thing to do...", I end up caught in the "I don't know even if I'm original anymore thought" sometimes it is better to disconnect and procrastinate since it will lead you (if you let it) to being an original thinker as you write here.06/06/2016 #1 Kimberly Lewis"you call it procrastinating, I call it thinking" this is such a mind opening post @Richard Claydon I usually do as Adam Grant and make a to do list, maybe because I'm usually a control freak but now I feel I should let go. In Human Resources there's also a need of creative and original ideas and for sure this change is much needed.

Comments29/04/2016 #1 Deb HelfrichIncredibly inspiring evening! Thanks for sharing it with us on beBee, @Carolyn Leigh. I love how both you and Susan demonstrate that being introverted has little to do with being shy. I also would have prepared questions in advance in case, and I would have jumped right up to fill in the front row. You've provided a lot of great follow-on resources for Susan, and I want to recommend the profile in The New Yorker of Eileen Fisher - that was a great read of someone building a company their own way.
