Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative
"It is often said that education and training are the keys to thefuture. They are, but a key can be turned in two directions. Turnit one way andyou lock resources away, even from those they belongto. Turn it the otherway and you release resources and give peopleback to themselves. To realizeour true creative potential—inour organizations, in our schools and in our communities—weneed to think differently about ourselves and to actdifferentlytowards each other. We must learn to be creative."
