Building on my last post, I came upon the following from the master, David Allen, in his GTD follow-up ‘Ready for Anything’:
‘I don’t need discipline. I need a disciplined approach. The creative, active, energetic part of me needs something to do, something that it can do and complete – successfully, now.
The intelligent, sensitive, aware part of me needs to be given an appropriate arena within which to support and express the higher vision and values that lie deeper within. I need to have and to capture creative ideas with abandon.
And I need to have the focused behaviours and systems required to translate them into next actions and physical reality. This is organization development, from the inside out.’
