In addition to insights into his approach and personal story, there is so much practical wisdom that this is a video I will watch many times.

This is excellent. I had never seen him approach people or interview them before and found it both fascinating and charming. He's done a lot to humanize people - from NYC, from other countries, living in a variety of conditions. Watch his TEDx talk if you can on "The Good Story".

Working in the same place for a long time gives you a perspective many don't have. Much of what I see now at work is comprised of movies I have seen before.

That's helped me learn what's important - and what's not - about work.

"Better" is subjective and personal. What would a better career and life look like for you?

+John Stepper Do the people in the circle share their development with each other or just with the facilitator? In effect, do they share openly with everyone saying this is what I'm working towards and what I've discovered so far?

If so, have you ever had someone share something that disrupted the group and made others feel uncomfortable? By disrupted, I mean a belief that might clash with the beliefs of someone else. For example, say one person believes that organizations of the future will have no managers and is working towards learning how. But in the group is a manager of a company who feels threatened by this.

Have you experienced something like this? And if so, how did you resolve this?

Yes the group should strive for zero judgement of others in their development but what if one person's mission shatters the stability, the world view, of another?

If you've never experienced this, how do you think you would handle it?

I loved the energy and enthusiasm as people working out loud in Pune and Mumbai asked questions and made suggestions.

Such a great group. I learned a lot about the universal motivations and fears we all have.

So many people dying. What could anyone possibly do to change the way things are?

Then something happened that finally made me pay attention and change the habits that were killing me.
My mother died the way big companies fail, the way people go broke: gradually, then suddenly. She was diagnosed with diabetes in her 40s. Back then, we had little understanding of the disease or of...

The short-term sacrifices I used to think of as trivial can actually have profound consequences.

The term "Rashomon effect" refers to real-world situations in which multiple eye-witness testimonies of an event contain conflicting information.

The multiple-eyewitnesses can be in your head, and what happens in the movie describes what’s happening to you every day. Knowing that can change your life.
Have you seen the famous Japanese movie, Rashomon? Released in 1950, it was directed by Akira Kurosawa and won several international awards, introducing the rest of the world to Japanese film. It a...

Being in an airport can be a lot like working in a big organization or perhaps living in a big city. They’re all places that can be crowded and lonely at the same time. Connected and disconnected.

In a dystopian restaurant in Newark airport yesterday I found out I had a choice, and how I could fundamentally improve my experience.

What do you think when you open a door for someone and they don’t say “thank you”?

Would you open that door for the same person again?
“After all this time,” my friend said, “I think I finally understand what you mean by ‘contribution.’” Then she told me a story. She had thought of something that would be useful for an important p...
