I will give you 3 reasons to believe that the poet and the CEO are very similar except they differ in the things they are looking at. Both use tools of imagination and intuition to look at things in a whole new perspective.
Think Tagore, think Tata. Both were fearless visionaries. One inspired generations to fight against the poverty of mind. The other created a wealth of opportunities through employment.
Consider the following:
1. Both the poet and the CEO have a very intense relationship with Time.
One figures time is immaterial while the other estimates every moment is time and material.
2. They are both bookkeepers of Profit and Loss. The poet chooses to express his numerous gains and loss through words, while the CEO prefers to use numerical expression.
3. The poet reveals truth through ambiguity, the CEO sees truth in analytics.
I am sure there are more than 300 such similarities you can think of. Dear reader, I invite you to contribute some more.
