on June 24, 2017 in Leadership, Nature, Podcast, Visualization

I’ve delivered this talk a lot lately. It continues to iterate and I’m years from being able to deliver it at the I-Have-A-Dream-level quality to motivate people as the cause demands, but I consider it ready. Please share! (with @spodek) I welcome suggestions to improve. This is the 90-minute version. I will create shorter versions too. Most of all, please contact me to join the movement. I’d love to hear[…] Keep reading →

How a habit forms

on May 17, 2017 in Awareness, Fitness, Habits, SIDCHAs, Visualization

There are plenty of books on habits. Too many, if you ask me. You don’t need books to start habits. In my experience, self-awareness will get you farther. In particular, starting new behavior creates new emotions and reactions. Paying attention to them will guide you how to follow up to improve them more than reading—if you pay attention to everything you can. That level of self-awareness takes time and effort[…] Keep reading →

My new graphic slogans

on May 6, 2017 in Visualization

Some people have told me I make some memorable short statements, which I find flattering. I’ve also thought about using picture-based social media sites, so I made some simple graphics of some of the statements I like. I don’t know much design, so I welcome suggestions to improve. Otherwise, enjoy, and share them if you like them. In a slide show On their own For the impatient…

Genuineness and authenticity: What it takes

on February 17, 2017 in Art, Creativity, Education, Leadership, Visualization

I finally watched Gone With the Wind. People routinely rate it one of the top movies. Watching it, you automatically rate it by the standards of its time. But watch the acting these iconic scenes. The morning after watching the movie, I woke up realizing how ungenuine and inauthentic the acting was. Sure, by the standards of its time, the acting was probably great. But watch this scene, the opening[…] Keep reading →

Fat, Manhattan real estate, profit, and where obesity comes from

on November 10, 2016 in Fitness, Visualization

I noticed when I shop at the grocery store, I use a lot less of it than I used to. I hardly use any of it any more, by floor space. I couldn’t find a floor plan of my local market, but this one looks fairly representative: When you avoid food where you have to throw away packaging and food with fiber removed, you only use the two circled parts[…] Keep reading →

Origins: of me and teaching leadership

on September 11, 2016 in Art, Awareness, Education, Freedom, Nonjudgment, Relationships, Visualization

My reasons for teaching leadership experientially today are mainly To enable people to create meaning, value, importance, purpose, and passion in their lives and in the lives of people around them Because the challenges the next several generations will face require changing behavior on a global scale, which are social and emotional challenges, not technical, and I hope to help create a community of people with the skills to overcome[…] Keep reading →

Company review: The Sweeten ruined my floor, went over budget and over schedule

on August 10, 2016 in Stories, Visualization

I love recommending products and people that work. In the video below, I love the Cuisinart CPC-600 pressure cooker and Vita-mix blender. I don’t like reporting on disasters, but some require it. Every summer my floor buckles because I used TheSweeten.com. When someone will work on where you live every day, you want someone trustworthy and with integrity, neither of which I found in working with The Sweeten. I bring[…] Keep reading →
