Cory liked a quote
Creativity, Inc. by Ed Catmull
“I believe the best managers acknowledge and make room for what they do not know—not just because humility is a virtue but because until one adopts that mindset, the most striking breakthroughs cannot occur. I believe that managers must loosen the controls, not tighten them. They must accept risk; they must trust the people they work with and strive to clear the path for them; and always, they must pay attention to and engage with anything that creates fear. Moreover, successful leaders embrace the reality that their models may be wrong or incomplete. Only when we admit what we don’t know can we ever hope to learn it.”

The Only Way I Know by Cal Ripken Jr.

Interesting to read about the streak from the perspective of baseball's iron man. I also enjoyed reading about the "Oriole Way" which now I believe is better referred to as the "Ripken Way".
