An E20 Evangelist’s Prayer


Please grant me the Power to release my inner Linchpin,

To unleash Creativity

And inspire Passion and Exuberance as I move through the Enterprise.

Guide my Hand through Use Cases and Proposals.

Remind me always of the Teachings of the Blessed Tufte.

Make my Presentations captivating and simple.

Bring me Stories and interesting Anecdotes. 

Bless my Dog and Pony (and iPhone).

Strengthen Me against the Skeptics’ Spears,

The Scowls of Middle Managers

And the heavy Hand of IT and Human Resources.

Help me prevail against the Spreadsheet People

Of Six Sigma with their stifling Weapons of Conformity and Measurement.

Help me find other Evangelists that I may pull them in and embrace them.

Remind me, always, how new and exciting this is.

I am a Teacher, but also a Student.

I must be patient and listen.

Let me find Inspiration in the Actions of others, both Inside and Outside.

Most of all, please help me figure out what is Next

After all this blows over

 When  the next Silver Bullet is fired.

In the name of the Gladwell,

The Solis

And the Holy Godin.
