“He said focus. The word focus. I hear angels singing. Everything goes dark except for a light that beams down on Sean. It is a God-given sign- like when people see the Virgin Mary in their grilled cheese, except this isn't religious and I'm actually not a big fan of dairy. I stare at the back of his head. His HEAD.

“If the heart doesn't find a perfect rhyme with the head, then your passion means nothing.

The OKR framework cultivates the madness, the chemistry contained inside. It gives us an environment for risk, for trust, where falling is not a fireable offense- you know, a safe place to be yourself.

And when you have that sort of structure and environment, and the right people, magic is around the corner.”
John Doerr, Measure What Matters
