19 and author of “The Little Prince”, wrote, “If you wants  to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather
20 wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearns  for the vast and endless sea.”
21 Sometime  you need to do both. You need to enlist and organize people to do a specific task-to build a
22 ship according to specs, on time and on budget-and sometimes you needs  to activate people’s desires and
23  stand aside. Who know, you may be surprised by what they do.
