One time a chief of a large high tech firm said,
I focus on white spaces...
Those openings between boxes and boxes on his org chart.
Boxes filled with people and know-how and activities to do.
The rest of the place, the white spaces, unknown, mysterious and open, were his.
What would I think?
Where ought I go?
How might I do?
If I was like him, tuned to my white spaces, silent.
Without and within.
