What to Remember When Waking. In that first hardly noticed moment in which you wake, coming back to this life from the other more secret, moveable and frighteningly honest world where everything began, there is a small opening into the new day which closes the moment you begin your plans.

 My favorite song for Sunday afternoons --> 
"Slow Me Down"

The wheels are turning in my mind
Don't wanna leave but I might this time
Seconds from whispering goodbye
Yeah the wheels are turning in my mind

If all that's left to do is walk away
Then baby I'm as gone as yesterday
But if there's something you still need to say
You need to say it now, hurry up and slow me down
Slow me down

If you let this train roll down these tracks
Gonna wish you tried to talk me back
Boy, you're gonna miss everything we had
If you let this train roll down these tracks

If all that's left to do is walk away
Then baby I'm as gone as yesterday
But if there's something you still need to say
You need to say it now, hurry up and slow me down
Slow me down

The wheels are turning in my mind
Don't wanna leave but I might this time

If all that's left to do is walk away
Then baby I'm as gone as yesterday
But if there's something you still need to say
You need to say it now (you need to say it now)
Oh, you need to say it now (you need to say it now)
Hurry up and slow me down
Slow me down
Slow me down

Woke up today thinking about #simplicity  and the laws of subtraction:

“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, to all bravely await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.” 
― William Henry Channing

+Jennifer Sertl  A perfect project in so many ways. Congratulations.  I have been in and out of the tunnel a couple of times. For those who have not been there, it's very hard to understand what Depression means in real life.

Perhaps we can help. One part of the vision of our Nemetics network is to create "Resilience Learning Circles." It is now taking shape particular for "2nd generation". I am 2nd generation Holocaust, our team includes +Rotana Ty who is a second generation from Cambodia. +Dibyendu De is second generation Indian partition living in Kolkata..  I just tweeted that the book is great for our work, as bipolar - especially depression - is common in those who are the children of parents that have gone through a war.  

We have been trying to figure out how to bring yoga and meditation into the story. It sounds like +Vijay Nallawala book will do that brilliantly.

@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.
