the culture of possibility

“I will not live an unlived life. […] I choose to inhabit my days”.*

‘Innovation is culture, not technology.’**

Culture is what happens between people.

When each of us inhabits our days – which I read as turning up with our talents, passions, and experiences, when we bring our best selves together and learn to play the “yes and” game, creativity emerges, possibilities open, and we get ‘to imagine what the truth may be.’^

(*Dawna Markova, quoted in the Northumbria Community‘s Morning Prayer.)
(**From gapingvoid’s The Origin of Species/Innovation.)
(^From Benjamin and Rosalind Zander’s The Art of Possibility.)
