THE "NUMBERED TICKET"
Anita Sharpe on Passionate Work

As we explore new ways of working with more passion and purpose, I offer up a thought for the day:

Every action taken, from the moment we switch off the alarm clock in the morning to the way we write a line of poetry or design a product, has the potential to change the world, leave it cold with indifference, or perhaps more commonly, nudge it infinitesimally in the direction of good and evil.

But we as individual toilers in the companies for which we work tend to see our life in less dramatic terms. Checking through security, we leave the universal laws of pattern, form and complexity at the door with a numbered ticket. Any company wishing to survive and prosper should be worried about this empty-handed appearance at work. Any individual entering without them should ask themselves why they think the situtation demands such a sacrifice.


-- David Whyte, from The Heart Aroused

Thank you for the touching quote that made me a buyer, albeit late, for David Whyte's, The Heart Aroused.

There is a continuing and amazing growth of interest in the subject of emotional intelligence...whether people understand what it is or not. In 1993 you could find one book on the subject at Amazon.com, now there are over eighty. The words have become a part of the language and the subject has become a major driver for the mulit-billion dollar training indsutry.

Through my contact with individuals and audiences, I recognize that EQ has become an icon for that which might fulfill our yearning-Our unmet need for emotional and spirtual connection with ourselves and others. A time of global arousal of the heart is here.
