When I concoct a goal or cook up a plan, I really donít know what will evolve and emerge thanks to the actions I will take in the process. When I commit to a specific outcome, I donít know what I may learn that could reveal even more significant possibilities. When I close around a belief that something will or wonít occur, and when I assume the best or worst, I really donít know what will occur. If I stay with the unknown, I keep my senses open to discovery. I pay attention. Attention is critical to my success and happiness since it is the core competency for agility and creativity.
