"…with enthusiasm you find you don’t have to do it all yourself. sustained enthusiasm brings into existence a wave of creative energy and all you have to do then is ride the wave."
great interview from luis miranda, strategy and innovation director at grupo gallegos. he quotes eckhart tolle above in what kind of people he looks to surround himself with. lots of smart thoughts on the industry, technology and what it takes to be a great planner. worth a read:
But how quickly the digital age turned into the age of technological anxiety, with our beloved devices becoming something to fear, not enjoy. What sex was for the Puritans, technology has become for us. We’ve focussed our collective anxiety on digital excess, and reconnecting with the “real” world around us represents one effort to control it.
And yet the “real” world, like the “real” America, is an insidious idea. It suggests that the selves we are online aren’t authentic, and that the relationships that we forge in digital spaces aren’t meaningful. This is odd, because some of our closest friends and most significant professional connections are people we’ve only ever met on the Internet, and a third of recently married couples met online. It’s odder still because we not only love and socialize online but live and work there, too. Is it any less real when we fall in love and break up over Gchat than when we get fired over e-mail and then find a new job on LinkedIn?
