Pair with Susan Sontag on how the intellect vs. intuition polarization limits us, and be sure to see Lewis’s fantastic treatise on creativity.

"Seeing the world from a new perspective sometimes requires getting out of the office and into the real world, meeting face-to-face with customers, consumers, and influencers. Talking to people isn’t enough, though. To look through someone else eyes you need to listen and learn. This can help to build a widespread sense of what other people value and empower people throughout the organization to make better decisions."

— Sarah Rottenberg & Isabel O’Meara “The Art of Looking” (via peterspear)
