Quote of the Month: Barack Obama

Given the big day tomorrow, I thought it fitting to start off November with my favorite Obama quote, which comes from the introduction section in The Audacity of Hope:

“No one is immune to the call to find common ground.”

I like this quote because epitomizes the idea that you should appreciate the perspectives of others, something I’ve written about before.  That concept surfaces all over the place, whether it’s a political discussion, technical design session, or marketing meeting.  You are going to find people whose opinions differ from yours and you owe it to the greater good to figure out why they have the reasons they do so you can find common ground.
