 I am lucky to be an American. I am lucky to be an American woman. While there is much to celebrate this July 4th. While July 4th celebrates independence it also is time to revisit the many ways to articulate “freedom." Below you will find some of my favorite quotes and links that help us remember the past and protect the future.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
Viktor E. Frankl

For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
Nelson Mandela

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
Abraham Lincoln

People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.
Soren Kierkegaard

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage’s whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men. 
Ayn Rand

Here are some additional links to celebrate a holistic view of freedom.

Onward. . .

The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed." ~ Ernest Hemingway

May this song offer inner #resilience,

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we're reading doesn't wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is my belief.”


― Franz Kafka

@Rdigital Life Interview with Ramona Pringle

Idea Mash Up with Tom Rand

Here are some themes that define my coaching/consulting practice:

The most competitive skill for the 21st century is agility which we define as resilience, responsiveness & reflection.

Too many people are associating innovation with clever or intelligent; innovation also comes from authentic curiosity and deep pain. 

We have to get better at suspending our need for immediate gratification so we can critically think things through for longer time horizon.

It is not about competition, it is about being in great condition.

This is not the age of information. 
This is not the age of information. 
This is the age of resonance.

Heroism masks design.

The most important app is your awareness as that informs the utilization of every other app.

Your competitive advantage is not where you work or what you do. Your competitive advantage comes from the accuracy of your interpretation of reality and the way you articulate your life experience.

You are not a node; you are a frequency. 

The soul of your business is the collective awareness & articulation of the individuals that make up the entire enterprise ecosystem.

If you want to change the world, change your life. 
Micro-shifts create macro-impact.

In all things circulation is much more vital than possession. Seek to be a conduit.

Knowledge has emerged from a solid > to liquid > to a gas. Our role as curators has merged from containing content to actually becoming the container.

We have come from a time of "think = learn" to a time where "feel = learn."

It is no longer country v. country or city v. city; today ideas are countries. 

My true north:
We have an imperfect but positive duty to seek our own perfection and the happiness of others.
Immanuel Kant

Favorite quotes:
We have an imperfect, positive duty to seek our own perfection and the happiness of others ~ Immanuel Kant

Life of a frontrunner is hard one; he/she will suffer & many of these injuries will not be accidental ~ Pele

People know what they do; frequently they know why they do what they do; what they don't know is what what they do does ~ Michel Foucault

"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” 
― T.H. White, The Once and Future King


Don't get involved in partial problems, take flight to view over whole problem, even if view is still not a clear one ~ Wittgenstein 

The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.
Charles Dubois

It would be difficult to exaggerate the degree to which we are influenced by those we influence. 
Eric Hoffer

Wind extinguishes a candle and energizes fire; be the fire and wish for the wind.
Nicholas Nassim Taleb

Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. 
Archimedes

Society needs visionaries of means not dreamers of ends. Once we have the means the ends will reveal themselves. 
David R. Hawkins

A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. 
John Steinbeck

A culture is made -- or destroyed -- by its articulate voices. 
Ayn Rand


Favorite quotes from my friends:

Your ability to release the potential brilliance of the community depends to a large extend on the quality of interaction between individuals.

Mickey Connolly


Some people think you have to have a conversation to get work done; however, the conversation is the work. 
David Whyte

Now is the time to move from focusing on the dots to actually connecting the dots. 
Ned Kumar

Because learning is such a vital part of organizational survival, the CEO of the company needs to become the Chief Learning Officer. 
David Hodgson

Because resonance causes reverberation, alignment is occurring. 
Sandy Maxey

The faster change is taking place the more important it is we scope out the future.  
Nigel Cameron

"Mommy, does your heart remote control people?" Griffin Sertl (4)

(While I was putting on make-up) "Don't worry, Mom,   beauty will find you." 
Hannah Sertl (10)

We can never know everything in ourselves or others.
Eric Best
