The Work Poet

I'm reading an amazing book by David Whyte titled Crossing The Unknown Sea. He's a poet who writes about work - a philosophy of work, what work means, why we do it, etc. Building on quotes from William Blake, Whyte writes:

...to feel that what we do is right for ourselves and good for the world at the exactly same time - is one of the great triumphs of human existence.

He also talks about the unbeatable combination of knowledge, imagination and articulation. All three are things we can develop & improve in ourselves. What are you doing to increase your knowledge, imagination and articulation?
