Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Michael Bungay Stanier of Box of Crayons.
You’ll know Michelangelo’s comment about how he worked, so let me paraphrase:
“I just carve away anything that doesn’t look like a lion, and I’m left with a lion.”
In that statement is the fundamental choice at the heart of Great Work: focus on the No to become clear on the Yes; define the Yes by clarifying the No.
I think it’s the essence of doing more Great Work; or at least it seems to be the critical lesson I keep needing to learn. (You do know we teach what we most need to learn, don’t you?)
