The only term that I have discovered that represents the approach to work that I like to take is Shoshin, which means “beginner’s mind”. It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions. What I've found is that the best teams approach the biggest challenges with a mind that is just beginning to learn. Here, attention to detail is as crucial as attitude and vision, coupled with a serious desire to persist - despite all odds.
