Disable otiation

Schermata 2013-02-10 alle 21.40.59

The word negotiation comes from two Latin words, nec and otium. Nec offers bold and  precise instructions: it says no, it reverses the concept that follows. But otium leads to a universe of interesting meanings and painful misunderstandings. Negotium is not only the absence of rest and pause, it is above all a call for committed activity. As a wise tweet from #wisdomalive summarized yesterday, “with the exception of unconditional love, everything else in life involves negotiation.”

When we negotiate we become more human then ever; when we don’t, we become arrogants and lonely.

Disable otiation to enable human nature.
