When considering a new job, instead of asking people whether there is a culture of creativity or innovation, ask them how they go about making suggestions.

Bad: “Why bother”

Good: Tell your boss”

Great: “ Tell someone a few levels up”

Ideal: Gather some colleagues and start testing the idea”.


From “Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers” by Timothy Ferriss –

““It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”—J. Krishnamurti”

None of this is easy. No business is. But as Paul Hawken once wrote, “Every business has problems. The difference between a good business and a bad business is that a good business has interesting problems.”
