News & Opinion: Quote of the day and a little more.

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:15 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Like many, I get the Fast Company blog updates in my Inbox. One entry (I admit that in the blogosphere, it's slightly outdated having been posted on November 7) has stuck in my mind and in my Inbox for the last few weeks.
It starts with a quote from Tom Peters:
If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

It's interesting because ambiguity is a necessary part of life. A part of life that has led to a man walking on the moon, the personal computer, the latest flu vaccine and much more. I know we (as human beings) would not have come quite as far without the ambiguity which has birthed questions that have led to creation. The FC blog entry further explains the idea that confusion is not necessarily a bad thing.
Other treats for today:
Jackie Huba and Ben McConnell, authors of Creating Customer Evangelists are giving away themselves (literally) for the day. Enter now at inBubbleWrap.
Also this week, we are posting a few excerpts from Married to the Brand on why customers become passionate about certain brands.
