Find a Way to Disappear

Week 10

Find a Way to Disappear


1.   One could argue that the best thing you can say about someone is that she’s self-less.

2.   Of course, not all agree, and some believe that the selfless person won’t accomplish much.

3.   The servant-leader concept that sprang up at AT&T a half-century ago seems an attempt to blend accomplishment with humility.

4.   The resolution of these poles seems to lie in detachment—a cling-less bearing.

5.   In this case detachment doesn’t mean lack of care, but distancing relinquishing vested interest in favor of the appropriate.

6.   It’s not too much of a stretch to understand appropriateness as flow.

7.   Flow—when the factors all come together like magic--is as close to nothingness as anything I’ve ever experienced.


is as far
as human language
can go to describe
There have been
only a few times
in my life
when I felt
I wasn’t there
when I was.
No lack
No presence
No thing

Hardly there
Really there
