  • Über David Allens neues Buch – Making it all work:

    What Scrum and agile programming did for the narrow world of software engineers, Allen did for the rest of us. He made being reactive not only respectable, he gave it a sort of glamour. Allenism isn’t about knee-jerk grease-the-squeakiest-wheel reactivity. It is about being so well-organized, no, well-orchestrated, in your life that you can react instantly and appropriately.

    I am simply pointing out the enormous (like 6x-10x) productivity difference apparently dumb shit like little red folders and swim trunks and a few lists can make in your life.Call it silly, but the little techniques of GTD make you an optimist about life and possibilities.

    Another Allen quote is that the people who are moving fast are the ones who most feel the need to eliminate drag. This is what eliminating drag looks like.

  • Aus Thomas Merton – the wisdom of the desert

    I have heard it said that someone inquired of Father Abbot Nisteros the great, the friend of Abbot Anthony, asking: What good work shall I do? and that he replied: Not all works are alike. For Scripture says that Abraham was hospitable and God was with him. Elias loved solitary prayer, and God was with him. And David was humble, and God was with him. Therefore, whatever you see your soul to desire according to God, do that thing, and you shall keep your heart safe.

  • Henri names three key roles for the leader:
    An Articulator of inner events

    The minister is to become familiar with his own inner world and its complexities, articulating them in such a way that others can discover and recognize the God at work within themselves.
    “…preaching means more than handing over a tradition; it is rather the careful and sensitive articulation of what is happening in the community so that those who listen can say: “You say what I suspected, you express what I vaguely felt, you bring to the fore what I fearfully kept in the back of my mind. Yes, yes – you say who we are, you recognize our condition…”

  • Gutes Buch, guter Review, gute Zitate

    “The secret of leadership is simple: Do what you believe in. Paint a picture of the future. Go there. People will follow.”

    “… leaders have nothing in common. They don’t share gender or income level or geography. There’s no gene, no schooling, no parentage, no profession. In other words, leader’s aren’t born. I’m sure of it. Actually, they do have one thing in common. Every tribe leader I’ve ever met shares on thing: the decision to lead.”
