Where to find ordinary brave people

Leslie Ferraro is a Marketer at heart. She was co-in-charge of consumer products and interactive media. It didn’t work out. We didn’t need a co-chair.

To see the brave, look at those who can forgive.

Organizational Courage

August 1984, at a Washington State University apartment complex. We are waiting to be sag wagon drivers for a cross-state drive – and a cross-state lift for us to start our Honeymoon bike ride from Seattle back here to Pullman, Washington. Our honeymoon began 14 months after the wedding day.

Organizational Courage.

What is it?

It’s identical to personal courage and it starts at the top.

It has to start at the top.

It’s the founder’s story.

And after the founder is gone, the successor has to inspire the organization as if every day is day one.

If you can’t be on fire with this, you aren’t living your purpose, you are existing (probably decently well financially) for a paycheck.

Yes, obviously, this applies to work and home simultaneously.

Reckoning?

Day of reckoning?

Yes.

In a perfect world, this will be painless.

Straightforward.

No-brainer.

Deal or no deal.

Integrity.

Behaving admirably.

For the greater good.

Rushed and hallucinogenic

leg extension at gym
Been consistently going to the gym since 2000. Physical vibrancy is gained over years, not weeks nor months. You know this and it’s the reason you are doing well right now.

It’s challenging to focus on opportunity right now because it is something you hadn’t thought of before.

With Covid-19 panic, critical and creative thinking is currently rushed and hallucinogenic.

Now is not the time to begin executing a new master plan to save your livelihood. Just like a medical wake up call is not the time to sign up for a marathon, assuming that the unhealthy person is not a runner and probably never was, now is not the time to think you can do the right work and handle a massive “reinvention” workload.

Summary: If you didn’t have it in you before, you aren’t going to flip a switch and have it now. And if you have it now, it’s because you’ve been doing the long, slow grind of a lifetime of personal and professional development. Congrats.

Wake up calls are gifts

Dream trinket at Disneyland
Dream? Of course. Why? It gives us hope.

Personal opinion – wake up calls are a gift. Been investing in several during my lifetime. Feeling decently prepared for this one with Covid-19.

Additionally, seeing this one as the biggest opportunity in a lifetime.
