Some inspiring points extrapolated from recent Barry Schwartz’s speech at TED:
– Human interactions involving kindness care and empathy are essential part of the job.
– Wise persons:
- know when and how to make the exception to every rule;
- know how to improvise;
- are like jazz musician, using the notes on the page but dancing around them, inventing combination that are appropriate for the situation and the people at hand;
- know how to use these moral skills in the service of the right aim.
– Rules and procedures may be dumb but they spare you from thinking.
