The Art of Possibility by the Zanders (he's the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic) must be some book. I haven't read it yet, but I just added it to my wish list. This book was featured years ago in Fast Company, and just last week the leader of Creative Leaps recommended it. I'd love comments from anyone who's read it.
Here's a choice Zander quote from the article by Polly LaBarre:
The Success Game runs in an endless win-lose cycle -- which means that the people in it live with a sense of anxiety and fear.
So I invented a new game, called "I Am a Contribution," or "the Contribution Game." It's easy: You wake up in the morning, convince yourself for a few minutes that you are a contribution, and you go out and contribute. Then you go to bed and do it again the next day. What I've discovered since I started the Contribution Game is that people have an endless amount of energy for it. Sure, goals can be energizing -- when you win. But a vision is more powerful than a goal.
