If you can't find a smart, interesting, supportive community of entrepreneurs, the solution is to build one yourself. Here's how.

Yea, you said something about a course that wouldn't be as much of a commitment, or at least that it was different in some way... So future-readiness must be it....

LOL! I didn't read your comment as a joke. I guess I desired it to be true more strongly than my critical thinking felt it was unlikely :P

Making a query for for something like that didn't seem too far fetched.... It could likely be done with a SITE:plus.google.com operator and a bunch of -INURL operators to eliminate the people with the same name that you didn't want to see

Another sorta fun thing to do is search your own name inside of G+ then add a -INURL: {insert your profile ID her} to the end

This shows all the places you have been mentioned in G+ that aren't just your own posts...

About project kitchen... Mentally I know I would like to take part... but Ive had a bad habit lately of announcing commitments to things that I don't actually end up doing because I didn't find the time... I don't want to let you down...

The course is something I would be interested in too...

Keep me in the loop and I will make the call when the time comes... Also, I'm a little fuzzy on the exact details of each... so if there are web resources or something detailing them definitely send them along.

Control is a mirage. The most effective leaders right now--men and women--are those who embrace traits once considered feminine: Empathy. Vulnerability. Humility. Inclusiveness. Generosity. Balance. Patience.

Looks promising.
Aaron Hurst is trying to create a new model for how--and why--we work.

A wise person knows the proper aims of the activity she is engaged in. She wants to do the right thing to achieve these aims—wants to meet the needs of the people she is serving.

A wise person knows how to improvise, balancing conflicting aims and interpreting rules and principles in light of the particularities of each context.

A wise person is perceptive, knows how to read a social context, and knows how to move beyond the black-and-white of rules and see the gray in a situation.

A wise person knows how to take on the perspective of another—to see the situation as the other person does and thus to understand how the other person feels. This perspective-taking is what enables a wise person to feel empathy for others and to make decisions that serve the client’s (student’s, patient’s, friend’s) needs.

A wise person knows how to make emotion an ally of reason, to rely on emotion to signal what a situation calls for, and to inform judgment without distorting it. He can feel, intuit, or “just know” what the right thing to do is, enabling him to act quickly when timing matters. His emotions and intuitions are well educated.

A wise person is an experienced person. Practical wisdom is a craft and craftsmen are trained by having the right experiences. People learn how to be brave, said Aristotle, by doing brave things. So, too, with honesty, justice, loyalty, caring, listening, and counseling.
The psychology of how we use frames, categories, and storytelling to make sense of the world. "It’s insulting to imply that only a syst

Love the thinking and intent behind this kind of popup collaboration. A community of process designers that I'm a part of, The Value Web, has recently published a tool for designing impactful face-to-face collaboration -- recode.thevalueweb.org -- and started an accompanying G+ community, which would seem to compliment and enhance the framework for this kind of convening. #recode

If a ball can roll on it, it must be real

(But if only a picture of a ball can roll on it...)

I can't find who created this image - can you?  I can find lots of copies using Google Image Search, but I haven't found the original.
