It's something for us all to think about with our teams, is to really respect people's level of conviction, rather than always strive for consensus.
What is a fight without chaos? It's an attack. It's unfolding. It's spontaneous. You have to be proficient and have skill. You have to be able to respond in the moment.
If the void is this living space before distinct form is created, then chaos is the opportunity to create.
My father [Bruce Lee] said, 'The void may be said to have two aspects: It is simply is what it is. And... it is realized. It is aware of itself. And this awareness is in us. Or better, we are in it.'
Chaos is the moment right before distinct form takes place.
Dwelling in chaos and not creating in that moment prolongs our pain.
If we are aware and conscious, we can shorten and bridge the gap between chaos and whatever we're going to build and craft. We can see the opportunity to create.
Chaos is the wild. There's beauty there if we're not afraid. It's the wild before we have found the great swimming spot or the amazing trail.
We shall find the truth when we examine the problem. The problem is never apart from the answer; the problem is the answer. ~Bruce Lee
"Not being tense, but ready. Not thinking, but not dreaming. Not being set, but flexible. It is being wholly and quietly alive, aware and alert and ready for whatever may come." —Bruce Lee's posture for meeting chaos

When asking for something, always be prepared for a no.
[…] we are all quite privileged. And I think it’s kind of a shame that lots of us complain about our lives all the time and complain about our jobs but we don’t change it. So basically we should be taking much more risks because we’re privileged and we can afford to.
I don't like the analogy of a crossroads because it suggests that you're definitely going down a path and you have to take some kind of direction. So I prefer this, sort of floating around, on a big empty sheet of paper.
