Woke up to this beautiful anecdote, can’t resist posting it here.
Stanford Professor Robert Burgelman once dropped his pen onto the floor in a lecture. He muttered as he stooped to pick it up, “I hate gravity.”
Then, as he walked to the blackboard to continue his line of thought, he added, “But do you know what? Gravity doesn’t care! It will always pull things down, and I may as well plan on it.”
