Why Creative People Are Rarely Seen as Leaders
Susan Cain

Thank you Susan for highlighting another instance where the expectation is that we need to do or be it all. This attitude pervades our society showing up very early as when parents begin to compare their children to others, to ignore a child’s successes focusing on how they can improve the one or two lower grades on a report, or at the employment level when we are asked to be great multi-taskers. This despite the scientific evidence that is stacking up showing doing the exact opposite is what benefits the individual, the group and society.

Articles such as this and many others by you and others can only add to that mounting evidence so that hopefully we may reach the tipping point and we as individuals will not have to labor under totally unrealistic expectations and be all the more healthy and successful for it.
