My buddy Bill shared this quotation with me recently: “There is no end to what you can accomplish if (or when) you don’t care who gets the credit.” These are the words of Florence Luscomb, an American architect, women’s suffrage activist, and one of the first female graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Arriving in China at the Beijing airport, I stood in line at the customs counter and felt overwhelmed. “What will this experience be like?” I wondered. “Will I be safe? Able to communicate?
