I strongly believe that we all need to crawl out of out boxes [1] and get a heart at peace [2] so that we have the strength to be vulnerable and innovative [3].

Original thread

The writing style reminded me a lot of the book "Leadership and self-deception" (http://www.amazon.com/Leadership-Self-Deception-Getting-out-...) in which a guy shows up at a new job and gets a day-long welcoming from the CEO, during which they slowly go through the idea of putting people in boxes and what to do about it.

The ending of raganwald's post especially was similar in tone with "You belong here. We'll do great things together".

edit: "they slowly go through the idea of putting people in boxes and what to do about it" Hmm, this sounds kind of odd when you don't know the book I guess :) To clarify: in the book, you put people "in a box" basically when you have prejudices about them and look at things through that angle only. Or something like that.
