While it’s good to be able to say no to good ideas to leave room for great ideas, it’s better to say yes.
And to say yes again.
Repeat yes until the right yes catches on.
Then say no.
Yes to innovation. No to pendulums.
Yes to ideas. No to pendulums.
Yes to creativity, risk-taking, and divergence. No to pendulums.
Not sure when a pendulum occurs? Schedule major resets.
