Without a job

daisies
These buds have one job, propagation of the species. Next step, bloom. Then go to seed.

Without a job, who would you be?

Imagining all the Ukrainian refugees.

Where will they work?

How will they work, with no infrastructure in place for what the rest of us take for granted…a garage perhaps, a car, a school, a neighborhood street, a local grocery store, a local bank, your doctor, your child’s doctor?

A clean shirt. A bed. A bathroom.

Hope.

Leadership.

A leader pursues a work frontier

Steve Jobs quote
Leaders see something. Managers do something. We need both. Screen shot of someone else’s post.

A leader pursues a work frontier. A manager pursues a work checklist.

A life spent becoming a category of one versus trying to be one of the best in your category.

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?

View from Siyeh Pass Trail.

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?
