Compliance is quite different from contribution

Organized bureaucracies thrive on compliance. It makes it easier to tell people what to do.

But contribution is the only way that tribes thrive, the best way to make change happen and the essence of being part of a community.

It's a shame that we spend so much time teaching our children (and our employees) to comply. Far better to seek out contribution instead.

What makes it art

A friend, commenting on a new building, "Iā€™m not sure if I hate it or love it! I want to hate it but I think I love it…"

Without that tension, all you've done is what's been done before.
