The Power of creativity

“Sometimes we need our telephoto eyes on
just to go into the chaos of a given day,
or a given client’s problems,
to find those elements that we can bring together
to make it all make sense.”

“And then my intuition starts screaming at me.
It says:
‘Turn around, Dewitt,
you’re shooting the wrong way.'”
