Here's to the Crazy Ones!

Find the "crazy ones" in your organization. Start listening to them. Give them room to think and act. They are the future.

How true Mitch! Yesterday I opened up Hafiz's book of poems (The Gift) to the one that was really a story about a wealthy prince who wanted the people to decide between two spiritual leaders which one was the most spiritual to receive the gifts. Of course, the story is left for us to decide but the one I chose was the crazy one because in the midst of her outwardly crazy response to life was truth. It's a good reminder for me that all is not what it looks like at first glance. lk
