Very well said. I find it useful to distinguish between reason, passion and wisdom. I don't find that reason holds the reigns of passion. I find that wisdom holds the reigns of passion (if it can), and passion is shod with horseshoes of reason.

Delve deeper, and you'll discover the ancient mystery of justice and mercy combined. The human experience cannot fathom this without a revelation from within, for while justice and mercy, like your passion and reason, seem to be opposites, each gives the other meaning on the path to contentment. Reason embraces that which is just, while passion finds room for mercy. Two sides of the same coin, they are. Brilliant piece, John. Thank you.


Hi John,

As usual you dazzle. Passion is your favorite topic. (and mine too!)

Gary Hamel posits the importance of amplifying talent as the future of Management and passion is pivotal to that.

I enjoy this refreshing view of corporations, when compared to the 'dilbertian' view.

Do you see an impending trend of adoption of passion/talent amplification in corporations?

If so, what are some of the data points in the corporate ecosystem that signal such a trend?
