By December 12, 2019 March 4th, 2020 2 Comments

“Curiosity relates to exploring and expanding one’s perspective. Innovation is about using that new perspective to take bold action, to create something new. ” – Mark Divine

Today Commander Divine has a solocast and continues to read from his upcoming book, “Staring Down the Wolf.” In this episode, he talks about excellence and how to achieve that commitment for elite leadership.

Learn how:

  • There will always be tension between the protectors of traditional ways of doing things and the curious innovators.
  • Part of a good solution needs to be a focus on simplicity
  • Good use of the Eisenhower Matrix helps you make decisions and focus on the correct issues.

    I have bought the book. I’m 85 years old, but am anxious to keep in shape and stay alive as long as the Lord lets me. The breathing exercise is great for older people, but I can’t get people at the “Y” to do it or believe in it. My son does it and he is a swimmer. Keep talking and writing. Thanks.

    Best definition of creativity … “a sensitivity to similarity” David Bohm, On Creativity

    Best definition of dialogue … “a shared understanding” David Bohm, On Dialogue

    My creativity is in understanding Western, non-communicable diseases that, in part, arise from injuries to autonomic nerves (see Wiki) caused by (I) physical efforts during defecation (Ii) difficult first labours (iii) surgical procedures … and a few other things !

    It takes simplicity, insight and Shanghai !

    Great job – well done !!
