I want to be a Lois Weisberg of all worlds- nations, cultures, philosophies, professions, and craftmanships.
Read of the day: The Six Degrees of Lois Weisberg, Malcolm Gladwell for the New York Times, 1999. Lois Weisberg is not the most powerful, important or charismatic person in the room, but an open-minded connector with an “involuntary affinity for people.” There is something beautiful about her instinct which “makes everyone seem like part of a whole,” unbound by socially constructed partitions.
To display an unqualified mind in understanding people.
To be in the thick of idea exchange between disparate worlds.
To maximize the power of weak links.
