Leaders (with or without title) face this conundrum every day: how to get the right stuff done. Controlling or trying to making things happen are great ways to generate resistance to what we want.  Avoiding and protecting might seem like good alternatives but they are only other forms of trying to control.

These all are arguments with reality. They belie a belief that life is harsh, we are embattled, and only our actions can save us.

When we come to understand that life is emergent–that we are its creators not its subjects or victims–business and life-at-large become joyous, light, productive, and rich.

Which is nice.
