Mike Pegg has a wonderful posting on living the vital life. If you have never read “the giant hairball” – treat yourself. Particularly relevant for people with a portfolio mindset either working full time or part time for a larger organisation.
Gordon Mackenzie, author of Orbiting the Giant Hairball, inspired many people to revitalise their creativity whilst working with corporations. He believed it was vital to retain the juiciness of life. If you don’t watch out, he said, life can become like one of the peaches you find in supermarkets. From the outside it looks perfect. When taking a bite, however, the peach tastes like concrete. People work best when they generate their creative juices.
