A metaphor crafted to remind ourselves to question why we perform certain behaviors.
Are managers stopping creativity and innovation by their behavior?
Even though you know the truth, does this example show you why you will stay in line with the false beliefs of the people around you?
Why do you do what you do?
Leeser Architecture: Thomas Leeser guides us through some of the strikingly imaginative projects his busy firm is working on, from Moscow to Bangkok to Abu Dhabi to right here in Brooklyn — the renovation of our own BRIC Arts | Media House.

You have seen these electric cranes that are used to pick up scrap metal and the like. A great disc hangs at the end of the rope, with wires connected to it. When it is desired to pick up anything, the electric current is turned on, the disc magnetized and it will then lift hug masses of scrap. To let go, all that is necessary is to turn off the current, and down drops the load.
We are like that. Magnetize us with love, and we can do or attract any good thing. Fill us with fear or hate, and our attractive power is gone. So let’s LOVE what we have. Let us do everything as to the Lord, thanking Him and rejoicing. God always helps—if we will but let Him.
And let’s rid ourselves of those twin devils of fear and hate. Let’s start by forgiving all who have wronged us.
Do you buy into modernism?
