"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Most evaluations of reality depend upon a synergy of two or more senses. Leadership calls for a three-step approach to translate wishful thinking into willfull doing:

(1) Awareness, where a situation is sensed and accorded attention

(2) Assessment, where analysis of the situation creates clarity, and

(3) Action, where intention becomes reality. This is inevitable, because we have within us more resources of energy than have ever been tapped, more talent than has ever been exploited, more strength than has ever been tested, and more to give than we have ever given.

Leaders impel the three-step approach into action via three questions:

- What’s the matter?

- How come?

- So what do we do?
