More inspiration from Warren Bennis. I will wax poetic on these thoughts and ideas that are taking root, growing in shape and providing inspiration as I read his words. It is about learning. "Learn what it takes to learn what you should learn - and learn it." These are the words of Aurelio Peccei. The urgency in the notes that I have written as I read confirms that this is something that I must and have and am learning.
