Remove the bits that aren’t you.

Sir Ken Robinson quotes Michaelangelo: “I did not make this sculpture. I revealed it. It was there already in the stone. All you have to do is remove the bits that aren’t the David.” Perhaps any personal development is not necessarily so much about building, but also very much about chipping away.

Sir Ken’s analogy for application: “We should start removing the bits that aren’t us, and allow the bits that are us to shine forth.”
