First, Believe

Saying that "I think if we had more conversations about what we really care about, we might find innovation happens pretty much spontaneously," Johnnie Moore points out that breakthroughs depend on hunches, authenticity and risk - not sure bets, representations and proof.

Applied to our inner lives, the point is well taken.

It's those internal conversations that led Philippe Petit onto a wire sprung between the Twin Towers, or, having lost two legs mountain climbing, urged on Hugh Herr to scale new and different heights, or lent Sapphire the rhetorical depth in "Push." Each will be at IdeaFestival 2010.

"Coversations about what we care about?" First, believe.
