Dear CCO: Chief Contribution Officer,

Thank you for your lifetime of continuous career improvement. We appreciate your vision, determination, and enthusiasm to dream, create, and inspire others to become a category of one: to treat your work contribution as an art form- to be an example for .thinking .differently (about everything).

Leadership Covid-aftershocks

Leadership Covid-aftershocks.

The Great Resignation launched from the already brewing side-hustle underground movement.

So many people, myself included, were experimenting with the potential to create a self-employed business model. One big enough to leave their current career path for good.

Why?

For all the reasons for what is common knowledge now – the great resignation.

No one knew what was possible, yet many dreamt of breaking free from what has always felt like a (soul-sucking) trap.

Thank you Covid-19 for disrupting the employer power play.

Disney stripper?

Disney stripper?

This was big news while flying to Disneyland.

It will remain decent news for awhile.

Florida voted to strip Disney of its special business district – the Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID).

RCID was created to allow Disney to manage the governmental bureaucracy from owning a business straddling Orange and Osceola Counties.

Bottomline, it was a transparent agreement that Walt Disney insisted was necessary to build the Vacation Capital of the World.

The Florida Governor agreed.

Fast forward 57 years.

Will Disney sue?

Meanwhile, we are all wondering if Russia will resort to nuclear warfare.

Remember, people hide their motives

Remember, people hide their motives.

This is especially true in the workplace.

Why?

People are trying to survive.

Getting ahead of others professionally is a great survival tactic.

Promotions and other work advancements generally equal higher pay.

Higher pay brings more buying power.

More buying power helps you survive better.

This is a generalization, and decently accurate based on my lifetime of observation.
