In his book ‘The Memory Book’, Harry Loryane refers to a 3000 year old scroll.
I read the scroll to Surraya Aziz, my daughter and we talk about how memory ‘stirs the mind’. We go from an example that we initially label as ‘benign’ and realize it was anything but!
You need the routine to be creative, you need the benign for the memorable, you need the base line for jazz or else all you have is chaos.
Mat Daley runs the IT Department at the City of London. Here he jumps off the cliff on two topics, most desirable skill in a CEO (According to a global survey by IBM) and the importance of checklists (based on story of Ployer HIll as told in the book Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande). This leader knows how to create a culture.
