I went to the neighbourhood park with grandson No2, the other day. He’s just two years old. He decided, because no-one told him he couldn’t, to clamber up the slide before sliding down it. He ignored the step ladder. And he kept doing it. When he got to the steepest point and his gumboots lost traction he was happy to enlist my help to get to the top. Then he’d slide down and do it all again.

I recently watched a great Tedx talk by Lisa Bodell, on how simplification is the key to change. Lisa talks about workplaces drowning in mundane tasks such as meetings and emails, and how these get in the way of meaningful work. She talks about eradicating the stuff that gets in the ways of change. She observes that we are addicted to doing and ‘thinking has become a daring act.’ She promotes asking killer questions; asking better questions; being provocative.
