If you’ve never had the opportunity to watch whirling dervishes, now’s your big chance to get an idea of what they are about. Basically, they dance round and round in circles to draw on God’s energy.
We use technology to innovate, but ideas tend to come most easily when your mind is at rest. IT & Innovation Prof. Silvia Leal says meditation is a way to rest your mind in order to tap into your creative energy. If you want to be an inno-leader, you need to be able to draw on the flow of energy.
Prof. Leal’s proposal is that you should open all your chakras…. The result would be energy and more energy of the kind that makes the world goes round –she concludes.
Entrepreneurship Prof.Peter Bryant in a roller coaster talks about the ups & downs of entrepreneurship.
As Entrepreneurship Prof. Peter Bryant puts it “Change and I have a relationship”. Years ago he studied philosophy and history at Harvard and Cambridge Universities. Then he shifted gear to a number of management roles in different industries, including Qantas Airways, Deloitte and A&B Venture Capital, plus being responsible for the creation of a number of spin-off companies. Two of these spin-offs were successfully launched on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), and another attracted early stage venture capital investment. But his relationship with Change was far from over, and in late 2006 he transformed into a professor. Allow me to quote now a young poet, Charles Olsen, from New Zealand, not very far from Prof. Bryant´s homeland, Australia:
It´s the way things go
that somehow changes all I know
of the world I see, that bring us
closer than I never thought we could be.
That´s what it is. Once you start a conversation with Peter, you´ll be impressed by his knowledge, his great advice, and the kind of person he is. You just gotta try it!!!
After the shooting of this video on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, we had lunch together. It looked though that I had not had enough of his company because I asked him to join me in the evening to go to a nice live music club.
It´s the way things go…the way things go.
