The talented Irish journalist David Walsh had a great turn of phrase in his paper, The Sunday Times yesterday.
He was writing about the Manchester United player Paul Pogba, who he suggested that his time ha come to move on – for himself and club.
Too often, he wrote, does the player play in a way that is ‘present but not engaged.’
What a super and profound turn of phrase.
And it perfectly sums up one of the biggest challenges for people and organisations everywhere right now.
“People who cannot invent and re-invent themselves
must be content with borrowed postures, second-hand ideas,
fitting in, instead of standing out.”
