Tonight I had the honor of speaking at Nabor House–a fraternity of Christian men who have ties to agriculture. Consistent with several recent posts, I spoke about humility. I quoted liberally from a speech that Clayton Christiansen gave at the Harvard Business School (ungated version here). In particular, I focused on this sentence:
Generally, you can be humble only if you feel really good about yourself—and you want to help those around you feel really good about themselves, too.
When I got home I read this article about Yo Yo Ma. He embodies the sentiment I was trying to convey. The world’s most famous cellist still works to improve his experience with the music and the listener’s experience!
