A Lego Lesson in Leadership

It's common sense that if everyone in one boat rows in their own direction, that boat will go nowhere.

And yet we build everything in our society around aggressive competition and selling messages rather than creating solutions.

So how do we build a solution?  For that, we need to co-design a plan.  But we've always been able to do that.  What's holding us back, what are we waiting for?  A missing piece?

What's our Piece of Resistance?  

If everyone only listens for what's in it for them, nobody will see what the big picture looks like

Emmet can set you free, but the rest is up to us.

We realize, with perhaps a shock of recognition, that the tension between creativity and necessary rules is hardly limited to the Lego universe.  And we get a lesson about how that strain might be resolved.
