    Storytelling article was wonderful – I never thought of story as a trojan horse.
    The one on keeping on learning was too good.

    I think Tara`s post was wonderful. I always used to wonder that after getting that first rank or that promotion , why there was a “so what ” feeling. I think this answers , The joy of learning , the flow of work is what makes us tick.
