“The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It is understanding.”

- Malcolm Gladwell -

"When people transcend the fears that block their creativity, all sorts of new possibilities emerge. Instead of being paralyzed by the prospect of failure, they see every experience as an opportunity they can learn from."

- Tom & David Kelley -

"People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories and magic."
