Leading Thoughts for June 20, 2024

Leading Thoughts

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with:


Michel de Montaigne on safeguards:

“The infancies of all things are feeble and weak. We must keep our eyes open at their beginnings; you cannot find the danger then because it is so small: once it has grown, you cannot find the cure.”

Source: Michel de Montaigne – The Complete Essays



Martyn Newman on self-reliance:

“Being self-reliant does not mean that you just go out and do your own thing. It means being secure enough in yourself to turn to others and take into account different points of view while also regarding yourself as finally responsible for working what has to be said or done.

“When you boil it down, self-reliance involves having confidence in your own judgement as a leader, and being able to control where you devote your most productive emotional and intellectual energy.”
