Living on the edge

The business case for culture. The fact you can’t read it all is good. This stuff is my IP.

Living on the edge.

Aerosmith was my first concert in 1974, as a high school sophomore.

Totally feels like COVID-19 has people the world over living on the edge.

For the first time, i’m unemployed for the foreseeable future, this may be the first honest work break i’ve had in a lifetime. And thank goodness for our rainy day (year) plan.

Gotta admit.

It suits me.

All i’ve known is work.

All i know now is no deadlines, no travel, no contracts, no invoicing, no planning, no followup, and no client calls.

Not gonna lie.

In no hurry for it to end.

In today’s world, is that living on the edge or what?

Summer Solstice Leadership Lessons

Change the third word to never, from always.

If you never put limits on what you can do, you stretch yourself in ways that make you a better person.

Can you shun anger?

Can you be patient 100% of the time?

Can you start and run your own business?

Can you be a role model for how to live a personally vibrant life?

What would you say?

What would you say?

About what?

If you were on your deathbed and your direct reports visited you privately, what is the last thing you would tell them?

Why ask you that?

Because…

Does it make sense to tell them now, instead of waiting, and likely missing the opportunity?

Necessity is the mother of invention

View from a trail 99.99% of hikers never hike. This trail goes behind and past Mt Reynolds.

Necessity is the mother of invention.

Now is that time.

What time?

The time for necessity.

Here’s an opportunity…there’s a rising belief that millenials expect their personal problems (i call them challenges) to be business challenges – that business owners need to care about and solve their employee’s issues.

Fundamentally, i believe everyone is the CEO of You, Inc.

Meaning, you are personally responsible for everything in your life.

The opportunity is in equipping a generation of young adults who weren’t “parented to manifest personal ownership” – in essence, parenting has been dumped onto the shoulders of business owners.

If Disney Ran Your Life podcast may have an opportunity to help businesses empower their employees with personal responsibility.

Got your umbrella?

LinkedIn articles
This is one avenue yet to be tried.

This is a perfect time to have a rainy day fund.

Adversity doesn’t develop character, it reveals it.

Remember that sentiment in today’s first post at MidLifeCelebration.com?

Having a rainy day fund is a perfect example.

Additionally, being debt free is also a perfect example. Learn to pay as you go, so when global adversity hits, your ship – your sanity – stays afloat.
