Few minds are spacious; few even have an empty place in them or can offer some vacant point.  Almost all have narrow capacities and are filled by some knowledge that blocks them up.  What a torture to talk to filled heads, that allow nothing from the outside to enter them!  A good mind, in order to enjoy itself and allow itself to enjoy others, always keeps itself larger than its own thoughts.  And in order to do this, these thoughts must be given a pliant form, must be easily folded and unfolded, so that they are capable, finally, of maintaining a natural flexibility.
All those short-sighted minds see clearly within their little ideas and see nothing in those of others; they are like those bad eyes that see from close range what is obscure and cannot perceive what is clear from afar.  Night minds, minds of darkness.
   ― Joseph Joubert

How to grow great [software] designers:
1.  Systematically identify top designers as early as possible.  The best are often not the most experienced.
2.  Assign a career mentor to be responsible for the development of the prospect, and keep a careful career file.
3.  Devise and maintain a career development plan for each prospect, including carefully selected apprenticeships with top designers, episodes of advanced formal education, and short courses, all interspersed with solo design and technical leadership assignments.
4.  Provide opportunities for growing designers to interact and stimulate each other.
  —  Fred Brooks
From his essay: “No Silver Bullet
