Dov Seidman: My fundamental idea is that how is not an adverb. It’s not a tactic.
Neuroscientists have since proven that trust is akin to a drug literally because oxytocin is released in the brain when someone feels that someone is trusting them.
Every time we learn something it’s a journey. We think we understand it, then we keep going, then we get confused again.
Inspirational leaders understand and can scale the distinction between doing something and, as capitalists, making money versus doing something in order to make money.
The very idea that we can out-behave the competition, that we can be excellent and excel in our behavior, that behavior is the source of advantage is a brand new idea.
How is a noun, a thing, an ethic of human endeavor, a platform for innovation, a lens through which we look at how we do what we do.
Being principled gives us the strength to do the right thing, the connecting thing, to enlist others in our endeavors even when it’s inconvenient, unpopular, dangerous and seemingly unprofitable in the short term.
